Koh Samui Airport to Thong Sala Koh Pangan

Hi,

I will be going to Koh Phangan 14 April 2014. The flight I will be taking lands in Koh Samui at 13:10 according to the schedule.

What would be the best way to travel to Thong Sala? From what I've checked I would have to wait till 5pm to get a ferry across.

Please advise...

Haad Rin Queen has a departure to Thong Sala at 4.00pm, the journey takes you 50 mins. Should be fine for you

Hi,

Unless something has changed the Haad Rin Queen goes to Haad Rin only. For a service directly to Thong Sala you could take the Lomprayah catamaran which leaves Koh Samui at 17.00. It arrives at Thong Sala at 17.45.

If you take the earlier sailing to Haad Rin do note that from there you can take a songtaow to Thong Sala.

Thanks Andy, sorry I forgot that HRQ goes to Haad Rin, not to Thong Sala.

@Warren, it's essential for you to get in Thong Sala?

We will be staying at Milky Bay resort. I was thinking that Thong Sala pier would be closest.

Milky Bay Resort if I'm not wrong is in Baan Tai. Baan Tai is about half way between Thong Sala and Haad Rin.

haad rin queen leaves at 1600 hour from KS to haad rin pier in KP

Lomprayah catamaran leaves at 1700 from KS to thong sala pier in KP

the difference is one hour

both options, u need a taxi (songtaow) to ur hotel

so, if i am in ur shoes, i will go with HRQ for the following reasons:

i will reach KP one hour earler

i will see haad rin beach sunset :)
