How to get to Koh-Tao

What about

Learn to dive, dive and dive again – that is what you are supposed to do on Koh Tao and that is actually what the majority of the folk you are about to meet on the island really do. A little hidden gem of the lower part of the Gulf, Koh Tao is attracting underwater world lovers with an abundance of easily reachable diving sites (over 30) and very affordable prices on diving lessons (there are more that 50 diving schools on the island), sea safaris and diving trips. Yet for those who are ready to go beyond the stereotypes there are hiking trails, bouldering, sea kayaking, fire-shows, and even jam sessions – all of them on the background of picturesque views and a laid-back island atmosphere. Priceless.

Getting to Koh Tao

The only way to get to Koh Tao from the mainland is by boat either from Chumphon, which is the closest departure point, or from Suratthani. You can also hop on a ferry to Koh Tao from Koh Samui or Koh Phangan.

From Bangkok via Chumphon bus + ferry

The easiest (and fastest) way to get to Koh Tao from Bangkok via Chumphon is by bus and ferry joint travel. Lomprayah catamaran and Songserm speed boat both sell such package tickets which save your time and cost more or less the same amount of money if bought separately. With early morning and late evening bus departures from Bangkok you have a choice whether to travel by day or save some baht spending your night on board a bus instead of in a guesthouse. The ferry travel with Lomprayah (the fastest operator) takes around 1½ hours; if your are prone to seasickness, get the necessary medicine at hand. Note that in case of the evening departure your trip lasts longer (around 12 hrs) compared to 9 hrs (morning departure), but you do not waste your precious day-time.

You have only 20 kg baggage allowance for your ferry travel; the extra weight is 20 baht per kg (not included in your ticket price).

Getting back from Koh Tao to Bangkok you have only morning and afternoon departures, both returning to Bangkok after dark: at 9pm and 1am, so plan your stay accordingly (book ahead).

From Bangkok via Chumphon train + bus + ferry

In case you are a railroad type, hop on your evening train down to Chumphon from Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok. If you buy a package tour, your boat operator will provide transfer between the train station and the pier, but you still have to while away some 3 hrs between train and ferry in Chumphon. In general, if you are ok with long bus journeys, there is no special advantages of train+bus+ferry journey. Choose price-wise, then.

Tip: If your are not in a hurry, stay overnight in Chumphon and discover the tastes of local robusta, find out how the birds’ nests are harvested at the farms and prepare yourself to your island stay visiting some of the idyllic beaches in the proximity of the city (e.g. Hat Thung Wua Laen).

From Bangkok via Suratthani train + bus + ferry

Even if travelling to Suratthani instead of Chumphon seems illogical, it sometimes comes out cheaper as you may catch a 2nd class sleeper for a longer journey. As in case with Chumphon, the transfer between train and ferry for package tours is performed by the boat operator.

From Koh Samui to Koh Tao

Both Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery take 2–2¼ hrs to Koh Tao’s Mae Haad departing from Maenam and Bangrak Seatran Pier on Samui correspondingly. With Seatran you have to book at least one day in advance while Lomprayah requires two days advanced booking.

From Koh Phangan to Koh Tao

Both Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery depart from Thong Sala on Koh Phangan and take 1½–1¾ hrs to arrive to Koh Tao’s Mae Haad. Book in advance (1 day for Seatran and 2 days for Lomprayah).

Seatran vs Lomprayah

If you know what seasickness is about, go for Seatran when waters are choppy.
Lomprayah can save you from ¼ to ½ hr of your sea journey, though.

Getting around

There is no car rental on a relatively small 21 sq. km island. If you consider renting a scooter or a motorcycle, be warned that the roads on the island are dangerous and get their toll of injuries regularly. Renting a vehicle though gives you freedom to explore the island as the ‘official’ taxi fares are sometimes extortionate. There is longtail boat service between certain beaches, which is a good option with reasonable prices.

Where to stay

The western side of the island is much more developed, and the ferries from the mainland and the islands arrive to Mae Haad which is on the western side. Haad Sairee, where the most of the action takes place, is also there. The eastern side is a slow life paradise, but you will have to negotiate those treacherous island roads (or greedy taxi drivers) to get to any of the western-side night spots. The busiest seasons on Koh Tao are summer (from July to August) and Christmas & New Year, so book your accommodation beforehand. The cheapest options sell out quickly.

Blogger report: Julia Rattke (High Speed Ferry Lomprayah) 08-Jul-2015 21:00

About half an hour before your bus is scheduled to leave (in my case it was at 20:30), you should be at the office at 327 Rambutri Road, รามบุตรี, Khwaeng Talat Yot, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand near Khao San Road. The Lomprayah office is in the curve of the street. In your booking confirmation email is also a map. This is their help hotline: +6626290011 and office hours are from 05:30- 22:00. Coming from the North you turn into this really busy street from the roundabout, between the 7/11 and the red sign of Swensen's. People with a lot of luggage may have some trouble getting through the night market. About 30 meters in, on the left side and right in the curve, is the Lomprayah office, slightly hidden behind a banner. Make sure to have your booking number on hand!

If you are on Khao San Road you have to find your way on the McDonald side of the road through the small alleys with all the shops to get to Rambutri Road.

At the office everything felt a bit rushed, one employee hands you your ticket and another a colored sticker with your seat number to put on your T-shirt and a color-coded sticker with the destination for your luggage. Make sure to tie that last one around a handle, it doesn't stick well. Then you sign in and someone will take your group to wait at the middle of the roundabout, behind the green sign, until the bus arrives.
The bus had only regular seats, so it is not a sleeper bus and the 8 hour drive will probably be a bit uncomfortable (especially if you were planning on actually getting some sleep). A travel pillow or a folded sarong helps a bit, and so do earplugs. The seats recline a little and blankets are provided. The bus is air-conditioned and has a toilet. I'm only 1.60 m, so I had plenty of leg space, but anyone taller than 1.90 m should expect some discomfort.

At 2:00 there was a 30 min break at a market with snack food. They also had a huge bathroom with clean toilets, but remember to bring toilet paper and flush with the bucket provided.

At 5:15 we arrived at the ferry pier, where the office was dark and still closed and we had to wait for almost 2 hours. There is a mini mart to the left, if you need anything while waiting, and on the opposite side is another array of clean toilets. The mini mart closes when the ferry opens for boarding, so do not plan on any last-minute shopping. When the info center on the right of the pier opens, you have to show your ticket for another sticker and to get a stamp. Around 7:00 people will start to line up for the "best" seats, but there was plenty of room for everyone, so I would not take it too seriously. After a short walk along the pier, you arrive at the boat. There are three seating areas: Downstairs (inside), in the middle (outside with sun roof) and on the top (outside without cover). I chose the middle and it was perfectly fine.

About 2,5 hours (of comparatively smooth sailing) later we arrived at Ko Nang Yuan to let some people on and off the boat and then turned towards the Lomprayah Pier on Ko Tao, where we arrived 5 minutes later.
From here on it is really easy: Get off the boat, grab your luggage and find your pick up or taxi at the end of the pier. Congrats, you have made it to Ko Tao! Enjoy your stay!

Passenger reviews out of total 100,374 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.

12go offer an excellent service, used them many times and it would be great if other travel companies were to learn from them what customer service should be like. The railway staff were excellent and the bed was comfortable, unfortunately the rail carriage was old and had problems. Before leaving Bangkok the door had to be worked on as it was broken. This also happened last time I used the service. About half an hour after leaving Bangkok the train stopped and didn't move for nearly two hours, lots of banging and hammering could be heard. Because of the delay the train was over one hour late arriving at Surat Thani and subsequently I missed my ferry to Koh Samui. The staff at Lomprayah were very good and I was put on the next ferry. The ferry didn't get me to my destination until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. I have used this sleeper service (train 85) many times and it is obvious the train needs replacing with new stock similar to the Chiang Mai service. I will be using it to return to Bangkok (86 service) but it will be my last time as in future I will use Air Asia to fly instead.

Train was on time. No problem finding out where to go to get to the train on the train station as its only 9 platforms ???? no major problems. Toilets were smelly and not so good, but not too bad either. Had both western toilet and squat toilet. Was also a shower inside the toilet room, so the toilet was often wet. No one disturbing at night, beds were comfortable and clean which were great. Was able to charge our phones. Water in the sink in the room was great too, with free soap bars. We asked the train person and he told us that the train always arrives 20 to 30 mins later to surat thani than what it says on the ticket. The train was on time, but we still arrived 7.45, not 7.06 as the ticket said, so expect this. Also tickets was very easy to pick up at the 12go office that you can see from the train station.

Had a great experience on the second class sleeper train. The sheets were clean and packaged individually. The beds were made up in front of us by a friendly conductor. Glad we got the air con as it would've been uncomfortablly warm with the fan. Once the curtains were drawn, our sleeping area was completely private. The lights didn't dim during the night so take a sleeper mask if you prefer to sleep in the dark. As a couple, we booked an upper and lower berth so we had our own section and used the upper berth for our luggage and lower berth to sleep. Food was overpriced but we brought our own snacks onto the train to eat. There's a 7 11 across the road to the Hua Lamphong train station, and a restaurant next door to that where you can sit and have a beer and meal and charge your phone while you wait. We booked the train with 12Go- easy booking process and ticket collection.

Just fly and save yourself the hassle. 2nd class sleeper train (which is their first class on this service) Was very grubby and old. I would avoid using the grubby basin or putting anything on the grubby floor. Aircon broken and very cold in the night. I had to sleep with trousers, a jumper And a jacket. I wished I had a wooly hat. Toilets are squat toilets,and shared by both men and woman. We Were sold drinks at extortionary prices by a smiling man who pretty much pushed his way into our sleeper car. There are no noise barriers to the neighbouring rooms so if they are noisy (as most Thai conversations are) you will need airplugs. Again, just save yourself a hassle and fly.

My first time traveling by sleeper train in Thailand. What a great experience, the train was delayed by 1.5 hours but that did not detract from an easy, enjoyable and comfortable journey.

I booked a lower berth sleeper on the train. There was no option for first class only second. I was told that the lower berths were sold out but I saw at least 3 empty ones on the train. There was no mention on my confirmation that I was going to be in an upper berth. I was ok with it but I received 62B refund. I would've rather known that I was in an upper berth. There should also be a first class option on the website. The travel agent tried to tell me that first class is sold out 3 months in advance but I bought a first class ticket less than 2 weeks ahead of time in high season.

Lots of room in sleeping cabins, toilets are ok. Make sure to take you're own toilet paper if that is what you are used to using.

Good trip, clean train, tidy sheets and blankets, clean toilet, good air conditioning, left right on time and arrived about 10 min late which was fine by me. Staff was good, and the random people that came to the door at the stops selling food sold some good stuff

Although our departure time change to an hour later we were contacted in ample time via email. Our flight was then delayed on the day by just under an hour. This said our experience was extremely easy and staff were all attentive.

Great trip to experience the thai trains and see a bit of the countryside too. The a/c sleeper was comfortable (1000% better than the bus!) 12goasia were amazing with their efficient communication. I booked my ticket from Oz and the whole process ran very smoothly. Thank you

Train tickets were confirmed within an hour or so. Sleeper was comfy and clean, higher standard than we expected. Ticket was slightly cheaper so refund was immediately given in cash on arrival at 12Go office. Excellent service all-round!

Le voyage en train s’est bien passé (prévoir des boules quies et un masque de nuit car les portes claquent et les lumières restent allumées). 12goasia nous a demandé si ça ne nous dérangeait pas de prendre le train suivant (1h d’écart), car le train était plein pas de problème pour nous. Lorsque nous sommes passés à l’agence récupérer nos billets, la femme était très souriante et nous a même imprimé notre billet de bus pour le lendemain ! Nous sommes très content de la prestation de 12goasia, nous l’avons utilisé pour réserver différents bus, train et mini van et aucun problèmes à signaler :)

My train was fully booked so i got put onto a slightly later train, but this was done well in advance of my arrival at Hua Lamphong with good comms via email. The problem was that when arriving at Surat Thani there is only 1 bus to Krabi and it had already gone so consider this when you are travelling Bangkok > Krabi. Despite this I very much enjoyed the overnight train experience and would do it again as it was fun to wake up in a different part of Thailand and not have to pay for accommodation for 1 night. Rather than have a meal brought to your bed, I recommend you walk through all the carriages and dine at the restaurant carriage as this is an experience in itself!

Perfect trip really as we were lucky enough to have front seats with crazy amounts of leg room! Given seat numbers when checking in so try and get there first to take advantage of this. We left at 9pm and lights were switched off almost immediately after leaving so could go to sleep. The staff also brought around blankets! 1 stop at 1.30am for food at a big food court with plenty of choice. Arrive at pier at 5am. Cattamerang doesn’t leave till 7am(ish) but kitchen, coffee shop and mini mart all open at 5.30. Nice journey, straight forward. Only downside is the seats got quite uncomfortable after about an hour into our 8 hours on board.

The beds on the sleeper train were very comfortable and I slept well. There was lots of room for all my luggage. The food options were great and received quickly. However I feel like a bottle of water should be complementary (like on Thailand long distance buses) since you are travelling overnight. However the train was over an hour late departing and arriving, with no explanation why. Overall I enjoyed the journey, and would take the sleeper train again.

The overnight trip on the sleeper train was very nice. Even though the lights stayed on the entire trip, the dark red curtains make it easy to sleep. Most couples sleep on the lower berth and put their bags on the upper bed (upper berth). The food was good and the train attendant assistant was nice and woke us up 10 minutes prior to our destination. I would definitely do it again.

Everything from retrieving the tickets to the various transfers was very well organized. Train was comfortable and on-time. The food on board was decent, the restaurant wagon being a fun experience in itself. Transfer to the ferry was smooth, and the ferry was quick and comfy. All in all this was a very good trip.

Super easy booking and service at Bangkok service point. Very comfortable and relaxing travelling in 1st class private cabin. Thoughtful and friendly Steward. Food wasnt too expensive and good. Only downside was the A/C which was too cold for us and could only mechanically regulated by open it or half-close it.

It was a practical and quite peaceful way to get from Bangkok to Khanom. The cabins are in need of proper cleaning, it's not enough that the linens are clean... More "official" information could be useful in the cabins (price lists, how to contact staff). And we also met the whispering beer selling man in the train.

Not much to complain about as I already knew what to expect. Train departed on time 18.30 16/03/2019. It is hard to fall asleep on such a journey so it is not for everyone. You need to be aware where you are as there are no other indications of upcoming stops.
