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 71,440 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.

★★☆☆☆
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.

Very pleasant service from 12go, great team. First class sleepers are outdated and we had multiple cockroaches, the squatting toilet in a moving train is an accident waiting to happen for people that are any less than fit - but nevertheless (if you can actually look over this) the sleep was surprisingly comfortable, and the train personell was friendly too. We arrived about an hour late, seems to be more or less normal for this trip.

We booked this trip to facilitate travel to Koh Tao. 12goasia was very efficient and professional with booking the tickets online. The directions for ticket pick up in Bangkok were perfect. I would definitely use this booking process in the future. Train itself was acceptable. Ran approximately 1 hr late getting to Chumphon but from what I’ve read this is fairly standard for rail travel. Staff on the train were great and we were fed both a snack and a meal. Train is a bit dated/worn and there were some bugs/cockroaches seen on the floors and trays - again I feel this is quite standard for this climate.

The trip with vip@ krung siam tour was great. The seats are very comfortable. We got a blanket, pillow, sandwich, juice, water and even a free meal at resraurant. Only thing one thing that made me less comfortable about the trip; there was a man on the trip from bangkok who stored our baggage in the bus so I think he works for krung siam tour. At surat thani he said song tau cab will bring us to khanom bus station where a minivan would bring us to khao sok. I told him, we don't want the minivan who charge 250baht for a 2 hour drive, but the public bus for 80baht on a 2,5 hour drive. He told us the mini van price is 390baht and the public bus is 180baht. So we chose the public bus and found out the price on the bus is still 80baht. Also he charged us 260 baht from bus terminal to khanom bus station, but the public bus drives from khanom bus station to the bus terminal where the krung siam tour bus ends. So he ripped us off 2 times, while working for krung siam tour. This had a bitter taste for us at the end of our trip.

The new terminal T2 is one of the best I've ever been. Extremely clean, with helpful staff. After check-in, there are plenty of places to pop in for breakfast, coffee or just a cake.

The bus is comfortable, but it's not actually a VIP. There are four seat per raw, and the seats are not big.

Poco claro. El viaje podría haber sido de muchas menos horas. El aire acondicionado estaba muy frío y se negaban a apagarlo. No existe ninguna cena.

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.

Nice train. Comfortable bed and plenty of room. We had a 2 person first class sleeper which was excellent. Private and relaxing. Start of the journey was rough - train spent s good 30 minutes shunting around backwards and forwards sometimes quite violent (I wouldn’t have wanted to be on the toilet / or worse, squatting) we then appeared to return to the station and sit for about 30 minutes so didn’t depart til 8pm. Uneventful for the remainder of the trip. We arrived about 45 minutes later than expected which was fine. set an alarm for arrival time as the train staff only lightly tap on your door about 5 minutes before and say the stop so if you’re a heavy sleeper you’ll sleep through and possibly miss your stop. All in all a good trip. Train reasonably smooth, but quite loud. A good way to travel overnight and save on accommodation

I did this trip on a recommendation from a Thai from Ko Samui. Interesting enough but the rail trip was not all that pleasant. We were in an air conditioned carriage but near the back so that the door to the toilet area was. Open nearly all the time so that hot air penetrated so warm rather than cold. Breakfast (sweet bun with custard centre) was served early and lunch at 10:30 am so that people disembarking encounter would be fed. Train43 special. Express. At least 14 stops to pick up passengers. Small cockroaches kept appearing from the seat in front and crawling across the tray table where we ate our food. The tables were very dirty and had not been wiped for some time. The floor was swept and mopped numerous times during the day but the toilets were another story like never. An interesting trip

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.

Very good trip! We were informed that there's a diner included, but we didn't expect it to be so good! We went to another hotel with a very nice buffet, nice staff, also the women from the reception were amazingly nice and helped us with our suitcases and everything! The busride was long but we were exactly in time for the boat.

Hello, I left yesterday and think, i forgot my flip flops at your place (either in the bus or at the meeting point near kaohsan rd) . They are black, have a thick sole and on the top there are pink and red threads. Could you pls check, if theyre still there? Thank you so much!
