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 86,220 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.

★★★★★
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.

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.

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.

Trip form Bankok to Surat Thani: easy booking and ticket exchange, good journey, clean beds, comfortable. To sleep, take ear plugs, some travelers might be noisy. As a family, we booked 4 beds together which we got (side by side). Kids loved it, much better than flying. Air con was ok, not too cold. Food+drinks are available in the train (evening and morning) and will be delivered directly to your bed… Don't hesitate.

Good trip. Take care at the train station as one board was not showing arrival platform! Nearly missed the train . Remember to set your own alarm so you get off the train at the correct stop and don’t sleep in. Gets a little cold with air con on full so wear something long as blankets are a little thin. Clean tidy and efficient service. Will use you on the return leg.

Service from 12go.asia Agency was very good - nothing to complain about! But the train ride was a little difficult which is why I’m rating the trip with three stars only. First of all the train was 4 hours delayed! I had heard about frequent delays, but this was still unacceptable as we took the overnight train and for at least one hour the cars were simply waiting for the main car to start the journey. The 2nd class sleeps AC was an interesting set up: they do not shut down the lights all night long, so if you have trouble sleeping with lights on then it’s not your kind of train. Also, the door was left open most of the time - very carefree customers I believe, plus an automated sliding door which was simply broken. It was super loud throughout the night. We also saw several bugs around the sleeper berths which made it harder to relax. The English is - as apparently everywhere in Thailand - very little and I personally would not want to fall ill on this train ride. For our return trip to Bangkok we are now considering taking first class if they still have seats, hoping it will be much more comfortable. Again, 12go.Asia is not accountable for the train service in Thailand - their service was exceptionally good and organized.

We had to leave bangkok at 7:00pm but they arrived 1:30 late. We arrived in Chumphon at 3:30am and had to wait 3 hours for the ferry. My question is: maybe it would be better not to go so early (they are always late anyways), and not to wait so much time for the ferry?

3,5 hours delay. Connected bookings couldn’t be refunded or changed. Nothing 12go can habe influence on tho. Booking with 12go was great, train right itself wasn’t due to the big delay.

train #43 Class II AC, Thai Railways
★★★☆☆
The ride on Express Train 43 was what I expected. Seats were ok, food was simple but ok, floor was cleaned twice, toilet was like most train toilets, avoid them if you can. Unfortunately there was no more service after lunch had been served around 11am. Which was bad as we had three hours delay. No information at all was given about the delay. So be prepared, bring some extra time, a good book, some food and drink and be as patient as the Thais are. To see the landscape was really a nice experience. And that was why we chose to ride the train.

12go was great. But I would not recommend this train. The 2nd class car was very dirty and grimy. Car 12 was actually dirtier than the lower class cars. Cockroaches on train. Several doors between cars were broken. We were stuck between cars for 10 minutes. The service in the restaurant car was extremely rude. We were very uncomfortable there. The train left on time but arrived an hour late.

The boarding process was hectic and confusing and there was a lack of communication about when we were moving paces and if we were delayed. Additionally the ferry ride was terrifying and choppy

train #167 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways
★★★☆☆
The service of 12Go is excellent! The night train from Bangkok to Surat Thani was okay. We had 2nd class sleepers with fan. They made the beds just after the train left at 7 'o clock, so if you have an upper bed sleeper, like us, one had to lay down or stand in the hall way... Then the sellers, they sell stuff until late at night, loudly saying what they sell... It was uneasy, okay but not restful...

The crew was very good and helpful. 1st class sleeper cabins are private, but old and not well maintained and the shared bathroom was not maintained at all - a single dirty standing toilet with no toilet paper or soap provided. An ok way to travel on a budget but would be nice if they invested a little bit more as it could be a great experience.

12go Asia is a very reliable and honest company which I highly recommend. My trip was sorted efficiently and even got a small refund when picking up the tickets since they managed to book a cheaper trip with the same standard. The travel was exactly how described. The overnight train is an experience for sure, but a good one. Have already booked another trip across Thailand to get to Chiang Mai from the islands. Thank you 12go Asia!
