Ko Phangan to ko Samui ?

Hi ! We are staying at Cookies in late August and are trying to book return travel to Bangkok with a flights from Ko Samui .

We would like to get either the 10.45 am or preferably the 12.20 pm flight from Ko Samui to Bangkok .Can anyone tell us what are the best ways to get to Ko Samui in plenty of time for these flights ? We have read about the ferries and a speedboat but are a bit confused where each one goes from and where they arrive in Ko Samui, how long the journey is and then how long for transfers to the airport .Thanks Mel

we got the lamprayah catamaran from Thong Sala on Koh Phangan and it took about 20 minutes. This is the main pier and there were other boats leaving for Koh Samui at the same time. I would recommend the Lamproyah catamaran - we also got a free mini bus transfer included when on Koh Samui. I can't remember the boat times but they have a website. The boat docks in Maenam which is not too far from the airport, but I would allow an hour from when you dock to your check in at the airport - just in case.

The Lomprayha fast ferry leaves from Tongsala pier on phangan for Samui at 7am and 11am,then twice in the afternoon.

you will have to catch the 7am ferry to make your flight.

There is a ferry Haad rin queen leaving at 9.30 from Haad rin but that is miles away from Cookies if you mean cookies salad.

The hotel on Phangan will arrange the ferry for you,it will include the minibus to the airport from Maenam pier on Samui.

Transport from your hotel usualy is not included in the ticket price but they will arrange early morning transport for you.

It is very common and every place you stay on Phangan can get the ferry ticket for you,thay all do this on a daily basis all year round.
