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 90,492 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.

There came a man in the train who selled meals and beer. Two beers for 280 baht... be aware of that. We ordered breakfast and coffee and were charged 320 baht per person. No Thai prices. The cabines (VIP) were soooo dirty. We saw at least 10 cockroaches in each cabine (we booked three cabines, 6 persons). It looks like they never clean the cabines. Everything was sticky, hear on the floors and under your feet... the toilets were dirty.. The good things; tickets were “cheap”, the train was on time, the people who worked there were kind (smile, take your suitcases, making your bed etc).

Despite being good value for money, this trip wasn't very good, I would have happily paid a lot more for a sleeper berth and a train that didn't get us to Chumphon an hour late! We missed our ferry to Koh Tao and had to go via Surat Thani, arriving at our destination about 10 hours after we were supposed to. We didn't get any sleep on the train as there wasn't any space to stretch out, and the Aircon was blasting all night. If you can book ahead of time and get a sleeper berth, I would say it is worth it! And make sure you allow for train lateness, it seems like it is a regular occurrence! Booking through 12Go have been great though, they were very helpful and contacted me with information whenever there was some.

NEVER AGAIN Our tour had 2 buses. One of them broke after 1 hour of the trip and we were told to get on the second bus. And we had enough seats. Why would they needed 2 buses? The buses are old and smelly doubledeckers, not comfortable. All asian people got seats on the second deck in the front. White people got first deck by the toilet (and it smelled disgusting). As we changed bus to the ferry (catmaran) we didnmt expect it would be a tough ride. It was a challenge not to vomit and it was hard to move because the ferry was jumping up and down at the speed of 50-60kph. We arrived 1.5 hours late. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. We ended up booking flights for the return trip to avoid going through this hell again.

Good service - bus was as comfortable as a bus can be, as long as you have something to use as a pillow the chairs recline almost flat. I was a bit confused before starting so if you’re travelling from Bangkok airport it cost me 500baht for a taxi to to the check in point and takes about 1-1.5hours. Then you get the bus straight to the ferry (I wasn’t sure if I got a bus and then also a train) with a stop off mid point. Guess the ferry ride is weather dependant as for me it was smooth and easy!

They train was extremally noisy like if it was about to fall apart. Don't get me wrong, we have old trains in Poland too, but this one was just wreck :) but main reason for lower rate is that our room was overlooked during bed making and I had to ask few times to do it and we had terrible Jet lag and were tired. Plus AC was very strong, no way to turn it off fully and now we both are coughing badly. 12goasia office experience was however very good!

+ the bus was acceptably clean + most staff were reasonably helpful and pleasant - ticket collection, luggage, and boarding was a kind of chaotic (but it worked) - there was an approx. 2 hour wait at the Chumphon Lomproyah ferry terminal (but there was a minimart, coffee shop, and restaurant) While not perfect, I would still recommend the service to those looking for an affordable route from Bangkok to Koh Tao and the neighbouring islands.

12goAsia works great. The tickets were ready for us the office near the station in Bangkok, just as they told us. The train, bus and boat took off exactly on time.Of course waiting for the bus is boring ad 04.00 in the morning, but we knew this in advance. We do not know how, but we got in the wrong bus and were therefor dropped at the wrong pier. After 1 phone call however we were picked up by minivan and brought to the right ship. Overall great experience.

Departed from Bangkok on time 09:00 and arrived at Chumphon on time 15:30 . The bus is shabby but adequate. The seat might recline depending on your luck. Toilet aboard was Ok. Luggage was stowed below. The bus is all frills (literally) The trip includes a 30 min rest stop for espresso, drinks, lunch and snacks. Jan 2019

I have one more upcoming trip with lomprayah soon and so far their company has been very professional and straight forward. I like that there are no long stops, everything is organized and quick. There had been once where the boat left a little late but you can tell they do their best to get you where you need to be on time.

Train is the same as 15 year ago.. but now little bit more dirt and cockroach everywhere. When you close your curtain ik become verry hot but when you open them it's to cold from the airc. Curtains are not blinding so the light what stays on keep me out of my sleep. The food we ordered was not warm, also the breakfast egg was cold. Of course it's a good price but I hope they ask a opnion to better themselves and hope I did my part to point out some points.

Great experience booking through 12go asia and travelling to Koh Tao. Ticket collection was very efficient and the stages of the journey were well explained. The sleeper train was clean, quiet and well run. I would recommend not buying food on the sleeper train; it was overpriced and unappetizing! Also, the carriage lights stay on overnight for safety reasons so you may want to take an eye mask. As it's a sleeper train there are no announcements of the stops but someone will come round a couple of minutes before your stop to give you a heads up. The ferry transfer was great. We had about a 45 minute wait at Chumphon but there was a nice little cafe in the information centre to get a drink and some breakfast. The ferry itself was a rough ride but only to be expected. Great value for money and would definitely book again.

The train ride was sweet. The AC was great, was cold initially but was comftrable once the beds were made. The catamaran was fast, but a lot of people got sick. Great views. The bus did its job. Waiting at the station can be boring, bring a book to pass the time.

We could've left Bangkok later, since the ferry only departed two hours after the bus arrived. The place we stopped in the middle of the bus trip didn't meet the lowest hygienic criteria. Someone in the bus sitting next to us took his shoes off, making the bus smell really bad. I thought I was gonna pass out. No one could connect to the Wi-Fi. All in all, bus was comfortable and the trip is affordable.

12go - booking and receiving tickets easy and pain-free. Staff very friendly and helpful and gave us each a free bottle of water! Overnight train Bangkok to Suratthani - clean, cool, comfortable. Staff effecient and friendly. Food, though not the cheapest turned out to be good value as includes tasty main meal with rice, egg, spring rolls, pineapple slices and juice drink. Also came with a bowl of soup but we didn't eat this as filled up by the rest! Overall great experience and would highly recommend.

Hello, I LOST / FORGOT MY IPAD IN THE BUS (seat A7). The ipad was in the little net in front of my sitting chair. Half way through the trip is sliped out of the net and i noticed it was on the floor so I picked it up and put it back in the net which must of been torn with a hole inside. When we arrived at Suwanatee station (not the terminal) we were an hour earlier then expected, we had to rush out of the bus as we had just woken up, unaware of our earlier arrival. We had to hurry to get out of the bus and i forgot my ipad. I checked before leaving the seat net and also the floor with the minimal light available and saddly didn’t see anything on the floor. It must have fallen out again and slipped across the bus floor whilst driving. PLEASE IF YOU FIND MY IPAD CAN YOU CONTACT ME AS I HAVE IMPORTANT BUISNESS DOCUMENTS ON IT. MY CONTACT: Kim SAVOYE savoye.kim@gmail.com +33(0)618454503 Address back home: 258 Impasse des Chapelles, 74450, Saint Jean de Sixt, FRANCE. I would highly appreciate it of you could contact them on my behalf to see if anyone found it or brought it to the lost and found. I have tried but I do not speak Thai. Kind regards and thank you in advance.

The service from 12go Asia was really nice but overall the experience wasn’t the best. The train was really dirty, i don’t think i have ever been on a toilet that reeked so much of piss as this one. We had to wait for 1,5 hours for the bus to the pier, which is a long time 04 in the morning.. The bus’s aircon had a hint of urin which was tossed in your face and the boat was fucking freezing.

It would have been much better if they had turned the lights out, hard to sleep with strip lighting above your head. Otherwise, very clean, I felt safe. I just didn’t get much rest. The lower berth is much bigger and has a window so gets cool. Upper is very hot, sticky and bright
