How to get from Koh Tao to Koh Samui

Crystal clear waters and idyllic beaches, lush tropical greenery and modern ‘island style’ shopping molls, fancy jewellery shops and colourful local markets – you name it – Samui has it all. No wonder that the third-largest island in Thailand, Samui has become popular amongst both luxurious holiday makers and backpackers on a budget who can each find the experience, accommodation, activities and entertainment that they come for. Whether its candle-lit dinners on post-card beaches, wild and adventurous partying through the night, treks through forests and jungles or days spent oiled up on the beach, Koh Samui is the right choice to get it.

Samui makes a great contrast to Koh Tao with its quiet village life and almost no night scene. Though there are diving and snorkelling tours offered on Samui, you’d better make all the underwater explorations on Koh Tao, and dedicate your time on Samui to partying, shopping or sunbathing.

Getting to Koh Samui from Koh Tao

There are three ferry companies which link Koh Tao to Koh Samui via Koh Phangan. They are Lomprayah High Speed Sai 2, Seatran Discovery and Songserm.

Lomprayah takes about 1¾ hr to bring passengers from Koh Tao to Samui, leaving from Mae Haad on Koh Tao and arriving to Maenam on Samui. Tickets cost from THB600 to THB750, depending on the departure time. There are boats at 9.30am and 3pm.

Seatran Discovery offers similar service but is a bit slower and cheaper: transit time is 2½ hrs, the ticket cost is THB 580. On Samui boats moor to Bangrak Seatran Pier. There are three departures a day at 6.30am, 9am and 3pm.

Songserm has only one express boat a day at 10am which arrives to Samui via Koh Phangan at 1.30pm. It costs THB 450 and the hotel pick-ups are included in the price.

Tip: As your sea travel between Koh Tao and Koh Samui will last from two to three hours, have all the necessary medications at hand if you are prone to seasickness. When the sea is choppy, opt for Seatran instead of Lomprayah, as the catamaran actually rides the swell, while Seatran cuts through it, which help avoid endless ups and downs.

Getting around

Koh Samui is large and you will need a way to get around easily, since doing it on foot is very limiting and uncomfortably hot, but there are many far better options available depending on how you like to get around.

Taxis (songthaews) are a great way to travel long distances on the island, or if you want to go out partying and know you shouldn't drive yourself around. While they are convenient and can get you everywhere from anywhere, this is probably the most expensive option, as you can expect to pay between 50 and 100 THB a person which adds up quickly.

Motorcycles are a fantastic way to get around. Motorcycles (and bicycles, too) can be rented from almost every resort on the island. Rentals are cheap, petrol is cheap, and they give you the freedom to go just about anywhere you want to go as you explore the island’s natural wonders. A word of caution though, you will undoubtedly see many tourists about with bandages and scrapes on their arms and legs, almost all of the time these are caused by accidents on scooters. You should be able to find a scooter for less than 200 THB a day. Most of the rental shops insist that you leave your passport behind. While this is a bit unnerving, it is also standard practice throughout Thailand, so be very careful with your scooter if you want to avoid any trouble.

Where to stay

Hat Chaweng is packed with all kinds of accommodation to suit any budget. It is the epicentre of the action, and the northern part of the beach can be quite noisy. Hat Lamai is another popular choice attracting holiday-makers both with its long stretch of white sand and a good choice of restaurants, bars and shops along the main road. In between the two beaches hides a little gem of Crystal Bay with – as the name suggests – crystal clear waters embraced with imposing boulders of a small bay. Hat Bang Rak (or Big Buddha Beach) leis relatively close to the airport (you may hear some noise), but the white sand of its western part compensate for it. Bo Phut is of particular interest not because of the beach but thanks to its trendy boutique hotels peppering Fishermen’s Village where strong Chinese influence can be felt even today. Families often opt for Mae Nam with its gentle sea. The West Coast is not a good choice if you come for the sea, but the sunsets are exceptional there.
Tip: Do not spend all your time on Samui on one and the same beach; try at least a couple of them and you will be rewarded with the diversity which this island has to offer.

Activities

Besides usual diving, snorkelling, kayaking, jungle-trekking and waterfalls find a couple of hours to visit the only rum distillery in Thailand, Magic Alambic. They produce Caribbean rum with a variety of natural flavours (obviously, they have coconut rum, too). They offer tasting sessions and sell rum, too (600-700 THB per 700ml bottle). Located in Baan Bang Kao. Travellers with the little ones in tow will love Paradise Park, which is a considerably large petting zoo, which is also one of the best viewpoints on the island.

Passenger reviews out of total 5,998 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.

Although the trip it’s self was comfortable, I had booked my ticket in advance and had a print out which I thought, would allow me not to have to wait in lines etc. I still had to cue at the port to be checked in which took quite a while due to the business of it. If I had known this I wouldn’t of bothered pre booking.

The ferry does get you from Koh Tao To Samui. It was relatively on time. That being said, all ferries that I have experienced in Thailand are like this one. Packed full with complete chaos boarding, and especially exiting the ferry. Every last bag is thrown in a giant heap in the front of the boat to be picked up by the passenger. There were so many passengers that people were sitting and lying everywhere with every seat full. I guess this meets (?) Thailand maritime laws, but God help you if there was an emergency. You would never be able to exit the boat.

I do love the organised chaos that goes with travelling within Thailand. The Mae Haad pier is no exception. We thought we had arrived at the right place when we saw Lomprayah check in" but after waiting in line we were told that this was the line for Bangkok, and the line for Koh Samui was the next building. Once we got there, the line was about 30 minutes long and growing by the minute. There are no crowd control barriers to form snake lines so some people just push in which is annoying after you've waited for half an hour already. The crew were more helpful loading bags this time, and it was easy to find ours on the pier at our destination. People on board would be less confused about who should get off at Koh Phanang and who should stay on board if they just referred to colour stickers eg. "Everyone with a blue sticker, stay on board, everyone else, get off here". Many foreigners either could not understand English or Thai, or did not understand the announcers accent when reeling off a list of destinations. I really liked that you could puchase a hotel transfer on board. Overall, the journey was comfortable, relaxed, and we arrived with no issues.

Boat trip went well. If you plan to sit inside, make sure to dress warm. It was freezing even with long pants and a long shirt. The middle aisles are warmer than the outside aisles as the outsides aisles have the air blowing on you directly.

Nice and organised ferry trip, much more relaxing than the one we had from Chumpon to Ko Tao (heavy sea sickness for almost all passengers). Taxi service was very convenient. We would go this way with Lomprayah again.

ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah
★★★☆☆
Very good experience overall, but I’m rating it as 3 due to the big delay of departure - 1hr 45 min. So we left around 16.45 and arrived at 18.45 to Samui (vs 15.00 to 16.30 planned) The catamaran was fast, well air-conditioned and didnt move a lot, I haven’t seen anyone who felt sea-sick. Our previous experience with the other boat non-catamaran y non-Lamprayah was terrible, so I guess it is really better to follow this one. The onboarding of the baggage and its recept on arrival was organized very well. Happily in the Koh Tao port we have ordered bus transfer to our Samui hotel in Chaweng upon arrival and it costed us just 150 bht per person that is big times lower than whatevrr taxi service (our hotel proposed it for 600 bht for 2).

When picking up the tickets at 08:25 at the Mae haad pier we were directed to a boat that was leaving 0930. We booked for 0900. When the boat was coming it was a lomprayah boat. When we were driving it stopped at the lomprayah pralarn pier and didn't go further to Bangrak what we booked. We then needed to get a taxi for 400 bath to the Bangrak pier.. So we were not very satisfied.
