Chiang Mai to Ko Phangan - Quickest route?


Can anyone tell me the quickest way to get to Ko Phangan from Chiang Mai - can I get a flight direct to anywhere nearby like Surat Thani or will I need to get back to Bangkok?

Hi Angie, Check Bangkok air. We flew Changmai to Koh Samui. Then you can get the ferry over to Koh Phangan. CJ

Hi there,

I used to live in Surat Thani (now in BKK) and I just recently flew back from there. As far as I know all of the Surat flights are to and from Bangkok...apparently only Air Asia and Thai fly into the new airport, the others (Nok, One-2-Go) fly into the old airport.

Bangkok Airways appears to have a direct flight to Ko Samui from Chiang Mai. That would be the fastest and most expensive route. You can get a boat to Ko Phangan at Big Buddha or the Nathorn Pier in Samui.

Hope this helps.
