How to get to Koh Phangan

What about

Say "Koh Phangan" and here you are in the middle of the partying crowd, old-school hippies and modern flashpackers, party animals and adventurous party goers from all over the world who come to the island to partake in a once in a lifetime celebration experience. Koh Phangan’s epic Full Moon, Black Moon and other ‘Moon’ parties rock the island creating an overwhelming atmosphere of freedom and happiness. If drinking and partying all night through is not your thing, it does not mean that Koh Phangan is a total no-no for you. A stunning island has much more to offer. When the parties are not raging, the island settles into a sleepy hippie town, perfect for the unconventional traveller who is looking for an organic experience. The terrain of the island is quite mountainous and provides a picturesque backdrop for white sand beaches and infinity pools in mushrooming luxury five star hotels and resorts which are consistently gentrifying the island, slowly transforming it from a budget destination to a Babylonian one.

Getting to Koh Phangan

The departure point for Koh Phangan is Donsak Pier in Suratthani. There are ferries linking Koh Phangan with its neighbours – Koh Samui and Koh Tao – and making island hopping as easy as it can be.

From Bangkok via Chumphon/Suratthani bus + ferry

Buses to Chumphon/Suratthani leave from the Southern bus terminal in Bangkok. They take from 6½ hrs to 12 hrs to arrive. Busses depart regularly during the day, the majority reaching Suratthani between 1am and 5am, so be ready to while away some time before boarding your ferry to the island. There is a convenient bus+ferry option offered by Lomprayah company with buses leaving from their office in Khao San Road in Bangkok which is a good option if you are staying somewhere in the area. The bus brings you directly to the pier in Chumphon from where Lomprayah catamaran delivers you to Koh Phangan via Koh Tao proceeding then to Koh Samui. Book a couple of days in advance. Opposite to all other ill-famed Khao San Road buses, there are no theft-related issues with this service.

From Bangkok via Suratthani train + bus + ferry

You have a wide selection of trains heading down to the south from the capital, offering the full range of coaches, from the cheapest fan seats to the comfy AC 1st class sleepers leaving during the day. There is a very convenient #85 train departing from Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok at 7.30pm and arriving to Suratthani around 7am. Even the 2nd class sleeper gives you enough privacy with personal curtains; the 1st class sleeper is a more chic choice but costs nearly double.
Do not, thought, disregard the earlier trains as they give you an opportunity to soak up the scenery. Limestone cliffs, farmlands and epic jungles pop up throughout the journey, each more beautiful than the next.
If your book a joint ticket to Koh Phangan (which may work out cheaper than finding your own way), then you will be picked up at the station in Suratthani about one hour after your train arrives and transported directly to Donsak Pier for your 1½ hr journey to Thong Sala Pier on Koh Phangan.
Tip: The lower berths are the first to sell out. Book them as much in advance as possible. They are also considerably wider than the upper ones. If you are travelling with a baby, opt for the lower berths by all means.

From Koh Samui to Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan lies within an easy reach from Koh Samui. Lomprayah and Seatran take sheer 20 minutes to get to the island; there are slower Songserm (30 min.) and Haad Rin Queen (50 min.) ferry boats, too. All the boats – except for Haad Rin Queen – arrive to Thong Sala Pier.

From Koh Tao to Koh Phangan

There are three ferry companies serving this direction with Lomprayah and Seatran offering the fastest service (80 min.). Songserm takes 1hr 50 min. for the route.

How long does my sea journey to Koh Phangan last?

Depending on the company you travel with, your journey to Koh Phangan from the mainland (Donsak Pier in Suratthani) may take from 1½ hr to tiring 6–7hrs.
Lomprayah – 1½ hr (twice a day in either direction)
Raja Ferry – 2½ hrs (four times a day in either direction)
Songserm – 3½ hrs (twice a day in either direction)
Night ferry – from 6 to 7 hrs departing at 10pm daily from Koh Phangan and at 11pm from Suratthani.

Besides Lomprayah (20 min. to Koh Samui, 80 min to Koh Tao, both 4 times a day) and Songserm (30 min. to Koh Samui, 1hr 50 min to Koh Tao, both twice a day), there are two more companies which connect Koh Phangan to Koh Samui and Koh Tao: Seatran (20 min. to Koh Samui, 80 min to Koh Tao, both twice a day) and Haad Rin Queen (50 min. to Koh Samui, 4 times a day).

Getting around

There are a few ways to get around the island which depend on your budget and your desire to explore or immerse yourself in the island experience.

Taxis, or songthaews, are pick-up truck which connect the busiest parts of the island. Depending on your destination they will cost between 100 THB and 200 THB per person. The prices are usually fixed and tend to double after the sunset. They are convenient, but limit your freedom to explore, and cost quite a bit when you add it up. They are however the best and safest option for full moon party goers – you know why.

Motorcycles can be rented from shops all over the island. They are a great way to admire the scenery on the coastal road which boasts awe inspiring views, quaint resorts and pit stops along the way. Fuel is cheap, and normally brought in whiskey bottles from local shops or from brightly coloured coin operated machines. Rental for motorcycles will cost around 150 THB per day and you're generally expected to give up your passport until you return the bike. So take photos and look after it. But above all drive carefully, you will undoubtedly see plenty of tourists walking around with bandages and scrapes, more often than not from motorcycle accidents.

Bicycles can be rented all over the island for about 50 THB a day. As usually, they are a great way to explore the island, but do not underestimate the tropical heat. Follow secret jungle trails or just move about the flatter parts of the island at a leisurely pace. Koh Phangan is very hot though, so keep plenty of drinking water at hand.

Long-tail boats are usually moored at the beaches and are an amazing addition to the island experience. With these you can cruise between the bays taking in rich scenery, including cliff formations which can only be accessed by a boat or by hiking. Besides that, they are probably the quickest way around the island. Prices are negotiated with the boats' owners, and usually works out quite well if you're in a group.

Where to stay

No matter which beach appeals to you most, if you come for the Full Moon Party, do arrive early. It means 4–5 days before the party hits the island; otherwise you risk counting the stars by night – literally. Almost all the guesthouses require the minimum stay of at least three nights, with some places not letting you in for less than a week. There is transportation to Haad Rin, where the Full Moon Parties are held, from all the beaches, so it is not so important where you finally settle down.
Families and those looking for some serenity and peacefulness should try the remote Haad Thong Nai Pan Noi with its elegant resorts which bring an air of Samui to Koh Phangan.
Tip: If you fail to find accommodation on Koh Phangan during the Full Moon period, consider staying on Koh Samui which is the closest option.

Activities

With the diving mecca of Koh Tao within an easy reach, there is no much sense in visiting much more modest diving sites of Koh Phangan. Still there are nice spots for snorkelling in the vicinity, including Koh Ma, and you may also sign up for a hiking and snorkelling adventure in the Ang Thong Marine National Park. Waterfalls and worthy trekking trails await those to venture to the island’s hinterland. Climb the highest island’s pick, a 630m Khao Ra, or hire a kayak and reach some hidden beaches and visit Saturday Walking Street market in Thong Sala (the best time to do so is between 6pm and 8pm) for local souvenirs and cheap tasty food.

Legal issues

If you are going to the Full Moon Party not just to party and drink, but to take drugs as well, remember that drugs are completely illegal in Thailand and punishment is severe. To get inspired, watch Bangkok-Hilton and think twice.

Passenger reviews out of total 20,508 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

No food as mentioned by many of the other reviewers. The ferry had no air conditioning on a blazingly hot day, made for a rough ride to the island. Only bonus is the bus was decent and cheap price.

It was confusing trying to figure out where to go. Google maps gives you wrong directions. There is a bus station separate from the railway station and locals nor taxi driver are Helpful. Once you are inside the railway station- there once again is no sign or desk or anything that communicates you are in the proper place. The black canyon cafe is the meeting point with tons of other uninformed travelers. As time passes everyone starts to ask each other to figure out where to go or what to do. This was the cheapest option at 850 baht and I would Never take it again. Bus changes, a ferry change and the seats are NOT comfortable. Not knowing if you are in the right place or what is going on is more stressful than the money you could spend on Lomprayah or another company that directs you and lets you know what’s going on with your trip.

The process of buying all tickets for our journey from Bangkok to Koh Phangan was very straightforward. The staff at the 12Go office opposite Hua Lamphong railway station made exchanging our vouchers for tickets convenient. The journey itself was great, a real authentic ‘train’ experience which I recommend. We were met at Surat Thani station despite it being 04:25am by the local bus / ferry agents which was reassuring. The subsequent bus and ferry journey were fine although the storage of luggage on the ferry could be improved to avoid the confusion on arrival at Koh Phangan. Overall it was a great journey at a fair price. Thank you.

Bucht nicht ab der Khaosan Road! Wir wurden 45 Minuten zu einem Hotel gefahren, dort haben wir dann 2,5 h darauf gewartet, damit wir losfahren. Während dieser Zeit wurden die anderen Reisegäste ab dem Victoriahotel abgeholt. Als die dann da waren, haben sie ein Buffett-Essen bekommen. Das ist ab der Khaosan Road nicht mit dabei, wir mussten warten und zuschauen. Es war viel verlorene Zeit, insgesamt 3,5 h bevor es eigentlich los ging. Außerdem kamen wir 2 Stunden später an, als angegeben. Decken haben wir im Bus bekommen aber kein Kissen. Auch keine Snacks, wie es auf der Buchung zu sehen war. Mit der Klimaanlage wird es zeitweise ziemlich kalt im Bus.

They offer a nice meal before the trip, BUT first it is difficult to find. There is a "From" and there is a "Boarding Point" that's confusing and the hotel (the boarding point) is in the back yard, with no sign to lead to. AND, because I have not realised that the booking system has reset the travel day by itself, the booking was made for the wrong day. I went to office, but this was only for the ferry. I contact them by e-mail, because the is NO phone number available. All what I get from there was bunch of stock answers, as if they were given by a machine. I was asking if can meet one at the boarding point to check if there is an empty seat, but nothing worked out. Not even that I offered to pay the extra fee.

Upsides: cheap price, time schedule has been adhered to. Downsides: bus is too old, some seats won't recline, very noisy A/C, defective curtains. Also, no pit stop on the 6-hour drive from Bangkok to Chumphon pier. I'd rather pay a little more and have a better service, but I guess this is what you get for the cheap price you pay.

We booked this trip quickly as we were running out of time and after reading the reviews became quite concerned! But, I can honestly say there was nothing to be worried about. We were told where to meet for our complimentary dinner but due to our grab driver being on his phone whilst driving we were late getting there, meaning we missed dinner. We were driven on the back of a Raja ferry staff member’s bike to the nearby hotel to get onto the bus. As we didn’t eat the food I cannot comment on it but the hotel was 5* and I can only assume the food was delicious! As we missed dinner the hotel staff prepared a box meal to take away consisting of a sandwich, croissant, muffin, juice carton, boiled egg, apple and a bottle of water. The bus we were on was new and our seats reclined perfectly. The air conditioning worked and there was a usb charging point between the seats. We were also given blankets and pillows and the toilet was immaculate! The bus set off promptly and made one stop around 6 hours into the journey for around 15 minutes. Once we arrived at the ferry port we exchanged the coupons that we received at the start for tickets to the ferry. We were told what pier to wait at and what time the ferry was leaving. All in all the trip getting to the port ran smoothly. The ferry is very old and is quite visibly in need of maintenance however, it got us there and there is more than adequate seating on board. There is no air con but a few fans inside to keep you cool. Reading a decent review would have helped ease my nerves after booking and I hope this can ease others!

Don’t expect first class experience! Probably not the most ideal bathroom situation but I must say I slept very well. Upper beds are really narrow and you can’t sit up (which is where I slept but slept fine) so get lower if you want a more spacious experience. All in all would catch again. Much preferable than buses

As I have used this connection years ago, I knew what to expect. But yes, I think in general it would be nice to know the exact time schedule in advance - you ll have around 3 hours waiting time in the middle of the night in some outside area until the ferry leaves at 7am. The only shop available at this time of the day (over)charges for everything like water, toilet, loading your cell etc. If you are prepared though - bring food, bring water, go to the toilet in the bus or outside or then on the ferry -, no problem. My luggage was safe / not searched this time, I kind of managed to sleep on the ferry although not on the bus - due to the 40 minute break at 1am and then having to leave the bus at 3am. And I arrived on the island in time. Otherwise, I mean, it's Thailand and the transport tickets are reasonably priced. I think you can't expect everything to be spotless clean and in perfectly new condition but I think it's not that bad that you need to complain about.

My seat on the bus did not move backwards, hence I could not sleep well. Anyways, the service is very convenient and almost in time.

We showed up at the 189 address. We loading the bus and we’re taken to the Veronica residences. We had a hour and a half wait in the hotel so the driver can prepare the bus. This was a surprise to us. The seats are not that easy to sleep in. Small for us North Americans. That was the only thing. The drive was smooth, I felt safe. We had trouble with the bathroom door but that was quickly fixed by the attendants.

In total, a really nice and easy trip. I was expecting it to be way too cold in the bus, as everybody here complains about the AC in every bus trip, but this was just perfect. I was in shorts and was really ok just with the blanket on me. Only bad side : the stop for the free meal. It’s totally unclear where you’re suppose to eat for free in that giant food court/market. Also unclear for how long we stay there. And most important of all : the food was really really not good (and I’m trying to stay polite here..). But at the end, bus was confortable and waiting in between stops and for the ferry was alright. I would recommend for that price.

★★★★☆
Clean and comfortable. The service is great. Someone comes around to make the beds, so everyone gets a collective sense of when it’s time to sleep. They come round with coffee for 60baht in the morning so you know when it’s time to wake up. Good coffee too! A comfy pillow. Nice blanket. Air con, so not too warm and not too chilly. Take a jumper and some socks though! Oh, and the lights are quiet bright even with curtains closed. I was on upper berth so probably worse up top! Eye mask recommended. There’s a restaurant as well. So don’t get fooled/ripped off by people coming round selling food at a station stop. You might pay over the odds and it might not be good! Would defo do this again. Booking through 12go Asia was also very easy and organised. Made the whole thing hassle free.

No information on what's happening. The bus stopped twice: first time around midnight and second time at 6 in the morning. Nobody told me what's going on. It's not written on the ticket that there is a change of bus. The steward was kind of rude, just woke me up at 6 and kicked me out of the bus in the middle of nowhere. Luckily there was Thai girl in the bus, who could speak English and explained everything to me. Due to AC it was freezing cold in the bus though I wore sweater and had two blankets

Bunks were great, you can fit two people to the below berth. If you do not mind train noises, then it’s wonderful to sleep there. And it is not cold at all, if you choose to sleep together in the below berth then it might get hot. :)

Very friendly and helpful staff at office to collect the bus and ferry ticket. We had to wait outside the bus for 20 mins even though the staff was there. So we left 10 mins late but where on time for the ferry. The water was a bit rough at one point and a young girl became quite sea sick. It would be good for them to have proper bags on the boat for such cases. In general everything was clean and well run.

The initial booking promised a bus and ferry, "express", and made it seem like you're just getting on a bus to the pier to take a ferry. We got to the initial point where we waited to take a private car to the BKK bus station where we had to wait some more for our actual bus. We were dropped off at another point where we had to wait some more for a private van to take us to another bus where we finally arrived at the pier and took the ferry which took another 5 hours. Not exactly "express". We were completely thrown off with all the confusing hand offs and wait times in between, especially with all our packs in hand and constantly having to wake up, pick up our stuff then drop it back off again, only to fall asleep to immediately wake up for the next hand off. If we had known that the trip was ACTUALLY this complicated, we would have just paid the extra $$$ to avoid all this. Really disconcerting that what you're presented to buy is not actually what you receive. I would not book with Songserm again.

The dinner was great before departure but that was about it. The big bus was officially broken so we were put it a small van crammed with people and luggage and no bathrooms. Talking to other travellers, I found out hey had actually booked the ‘cheap transfer’ and paid much less. Only part of the travellers were given ferry tickets so I had to sort out my ticket upon arrival at the port and missed the ferry - two hours later I was on the boat finally. Have requested a refund and am waiting for a reply.

Everything worked very smoothly! The first bus was good and served lunch and breakfast. However the bus ride took 4 hours longer than expected due to heavy traffic so we nearly missed our night bus from Bangkok. Luckily we didn’t ;) The nightbus was very nice! The AC worked great so bring a jumper :) the ferry also worked very well and everything was well organised. Friendly and helpful staff! 5/5

12go Asia is the easiest way to book Thailand train tickets. They kept sending reminders about the trip and instructions were clear. Their staff can communicate in English and do a great job at explaining the itinerary. They can possibly start ticket shipping services to avoid in person ticket collection.

Time efficient trip, however we were not told until just before boarding the bus that it would not stop for food, and as we were travelling with children this was a problem. We were forced to go to seven eleven and all that was on offer was junk. There was food at the jetty but were ushered very quickly on to the ferry so there was no time to buy any and again there was only junk available on the ferry! The seats on the bus were uncomfortable, one of ours was broken and did not come fully upright and we were seated downstairs next to the toilet which smelt bad!!! hopefully the return journey is better! The ferry was modern and comfortable, and overall the journey was okay but the bus was disappointing. 12go however was well organised, everything went to plan and the information provided was accurate and excellent

Great service, was pleasantly surprised at the standard of all the transport! The beds on the train were comforable alhtough really bright as the lights are on all night so bring a facemask! I had the top bunk which was fine for me as I'm not too big but he bottom bunks are much more spacious, so opt for that if you have the option, The transfers all went really smoothly, Some people complain about the extra time between train/bus transfer, however it worked in our favour as the train took 45 minutes longer than expected meaning our journey still arrived on time and we had a shorter stopover. The staff at 12go were really helpful. Would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed the trip although in the bus the temperature was freezing and the air/co was working at the fullest and they offered a snack and a beverage but there was only an option so in my case I couldn’t enjoy it as I wasn’t able to eat or drink what given. One of the small tv was nos working. The timetable was perfect.
