Koh Samui travel

Hi, my friend is in Phi Phi currently and thinking about traveling to Koh tao via Koh Samui on 9/30.

She was worried about chance that the Ferry would be cancelled and worried that the ferry might be fully booked due to a celebration that she read about in a travel book.

Can anyone confirm these worries or give reassurance?

Thanks in advance.

You can check availabilty/purchase tickets online at:




If the 9/30 coincides with the Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan it will be difficult to get tickets on the ferry companies mentioned above.

How about the weather? I see that there is an advisory out on the national weather site: www.tmd.go.th/en/warningwindow.php?wID=3253

Yes the Full Moon Party is September 30th so both ferries and accomodation will be busy, booking ahead would be wise.Andy has given the links for the transport options.

The weather is unpredictable and obviously could cause severe travel delays if the seasa are very rough.
