Nathon Pier - Airport: Transfer Time?


Trying to pull our itinerary together and book the final flights. We are coming back to Bangkok from Koh Phangan, and would prefer to ferry to Koh Samui, hop off and then grab a flight vs. travel via Surat Thani.

The 12:00 ferry from Koh Phangan arrives in Nathon Pier at 12:30. Is that sufficient time to transfer to the airport in time for a 13:50 flight? What is the estimated transfer time from pier to airport?

If there isn't enough cushion to allow for a late sailing from Koh Phangan, I can book a later flight.

Thank you for your help.

The travel time from Nathon to Samui airport should be around 30mins. But I would book with the later flight ( there are many more right until evening ) just incase the ferry or your transfers have unforeseen circumstance.

Once you check in you can relax at Bangkok airways lounges with complimentary drinks, snacks and wifi.

I would book the later flight too!

The PG Bangkok Airport lounge (well an open area under one of the thatch huts that is Samui airport) also offer free wifi!
