Hi,

Also the slower, larger Raja ferries do the route:

The crossing takes about 2.5 hours and add on an extra 1.5 hours for the transfer to Surat Thani airport.

Hi I also have a question regarding how to get back from koh phangan to Bangkok .... I saw online NOK airlines works with Lomprayah. Is the ferry ride direct? I'm a bit confused with the NOK flight

Hi,

Lomprayah operates a bus transfer to Don Sak pier from where the catamaran departs from. The sea journey takes about 1.5 hours via Koh Samui.

hi thanks so it is better to book these ferries once you're there? Is it better to do the ferry since it sounds more direct or the fly? so confused :(

Hi,

The Nok Air flight departs from Don Muang airport, it lands at Nakhon Si Thamarat which is on the mainland. From there you will be transferred by bus to Don Sak pier from where the Lomprayah catamaran departs from. The crossing to Koh Phangan is via Koh Samui, it is not a direct service. I would buy the ticket all in one.

Alternatively you could fly on either Nok Air or Air Asia (from Don Muang) to Surat Thani which is also on the mainland. Once at Surat Thani airport you will encounter three companies which sell tickets for Koh Phangan. These are Lomprayah, Raja and Songserm. The tickets will include the bus transfer to Don Sak pier and then the sea journey to Koh Phangan. The Raja ferry is a direct sailing while the Lomprayah and Songserm craft stop at Koh Samui on the way to Koh Phangan.
