How to get to Koh Phangan from Phuket

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 the 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. The 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.

From Phuket to Koh Phangan

Buy a combination ticket from Phuket to Koh Phangan or tailor-make your trip all by yourself. Getting from the Andaman Coast to the Gulf is easy, though be prepared to at least a seven-hour journey. There are no direct flights between Phuket and Suratthani, the starting point on the mainland for a sea journey to Koh Phangan. Though you can fly via Bangkok, it does not make much sense; so choose any of the overland options.

From Phuket to Koh Phangan by a combination bus+ferry ticket

The fastest and most convenient ride from Phuket to Koh Phangan is offered by Lomprayah company which sells combination bus + ferry tickets. There are two departures a day: at 10am and at 12.30pm from Phuket Lomprayah office in Bangkok Road in Phuket Town. Passengers go by bus to Suratthani first where they transfer to Lomprayah high-speed ferry at 2.30pm and 4pm respectively, arriving to Thong Sala Pier on Koh Phangan at 5.30pm and 7.30pm. The whole journey thus takes about 7½ hours. Tickets cost THB1400 and should be booked at least two days in advance.

Note that you should show up at Lomprayah office at least half an hour before the departure.

From Phuket to Koh Phangan by separate bus+ferry tickets

For a wider choice of options to get from Phuket to Koh Phangan, buy separate tickets from Phuket to Suratthani first and then from Suratthani to Koh Phangan. You will definitely spend more time this way, but with separate tickets you can save a couple of baht, too.

Note though, that most probably you will have to spend the night in Suratthani to proceed with your journey to Koh Phangan the next morning. If you wish to get to Koh Phangan the same day you leave Phuket, take 8am bus the latest to catch Lomprayah ferries at 2.30pm or 4pm.

There are a lot of buses leaving Phuket for Suratthani all day long. You may want to check, for instance, Phantip Travel. They operate from Phuket Bus Terminal 2 in Phetkrasattri Road and offer Standard AC buses calling both to Suratthani train station (4½ hours; THB250) in Phun Phin and Suratthani Town proper (5 hours; THB270).

In Suratthani, Phantip Travel, Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery pick up passengers in Suratthani Town, at Suratthani train station or at Suratthani airport: please check carefully the pick-up location before buying your ticket. Phantip Travel sells the cheapest tickets (THB380) but uses the slowest ferries, so the trip from the train station in Phun Phin to Koh Phangan lasts not less than 4½ hours, while Lomprayah does the same job in three hours, but costs more (THB600). There are 6 departures a day from Suratthani airport, too, both with Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery: from 5 to 7 hours (THB700; the first departure is at 8.30an, the last one is at 1.30pm).

From Koh Phi Phi to Koh Phangan

If you are heading to Koh Phangan from Koh Phi Phi (let us guess... for the Full Moon Party?!), you can take a joint ferry+bus+ferry ticket with Seatran Discovery which is the best way to travel between the two islands. It will cost you considerably less that if buying separate tickets from Koh Phi Phi to Phuket and then from Phuket to Koh Phangan. Look no further.

Island hopping from Koh Phangan

Do not miss a wonderful opportunity to visit Koh Phangan’s neighbouring islands, Koh Samui and Koh Tao. Though a part of the same archipelago, the three islands differ greatly in the atmosphere and activities they offer.

From Koh Phangan to Koh Samui

Change the party-crazy Koh Phangan for Koh Samui’s upscale resorts, idyllic beaches and beautiful crowd – or just use Koh Samui as your base for partying on Koh Phangan if all the accommodation options on Hat Rin are sold out for the Full Moon Party. A slow Haad Rin Queen ferry brings you to Koh Samui from Koh Phangan in 50 minutes; Sonserm covers the same distance in 40 minutes; Lomprayah (THB300) and Seatran Discovery (THB400) are the fastest operators (20-30 minutes).

From Koh Phangan to Koh Tao

A diving Mecca of Thailand, Koh Tao is the place to get your fins wet. Seatran Discovery and Lomprayah offer the fastest (1–1½ hour) and most expensive transfer from Koh Phangan to Koh Tao (from THB500). There are also Songserm boats plying the same route.

Getting around

Koh Phangan is big enough, and if you wish to explore the island interior and its beaches, it makes sense to hire a motorbike – provided you know how to drive. Otherwise skip the idea and opt for songthaews instead. It will cost you more (THB100-THB200 for a ride depending on your destination), but taking into account rather an elevated number of inexperienced (and often drunk) riders fresh from Moon Parties, it may prove much safer.

That said, a motorbike remains a great way for getting around on Koh Phangan, and rentals are cheap – from as low as THB150 per day; but be ready to leave your passport as a deposit, which may feel a bit uncomfortable thing to do as scams on asking tourists to pay for imaginary damages of motorbikes on handing vehicles back are not unheard of.

The fittest ones can make use of bicycles (from THB50 per day), but do not underestimate the island roads coupled with tropical heat. It is a great idea to hire a longtail boat to cruise little bays accessible only from water or by hiking. 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 Hat 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 great 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. In any case do not leave drugs in your accommodation and do not carry any with you.

Passenger reviews out of total 4,362 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.

Very satisfied!! The 12Go.Asia team was very helpful to me last minute when I was trying to locate the correct pickup location. I changed phone numbers to a Thai tourist cell, and the 12Go.Asia team provided a prompt response to get my new number to the driver so he could help me find the pickup location. Great service!

The flight was beautiful. It was supposed to be 55 minutes but it was more like 35. The missing star is due to phuket airport taking my battery pack during the last leg of travel. 11 days of travel and 4 airports with no issues. Get here and I'm over the capacity. Nothing was said prior to booking so it had to be thrown out. Unreal.

Some of the staff were very rude and it was unclear when to queue for the next ferry. We were told that we needed to be there at 3 but actually the departure time was 3 so several people were running late to be on time. Very affordable price.

The actual journey was as described, however the stopover for food/drinks was at a covered area with all the food out in the open, not sure how long it had been there. Was expecting to stop at a service station with a choice of places. When we arrived in Koh Samui the luggage was off loaded onto the quay where people were waiting to get on, total chaos. We also paid extra to 12 go Asia for "priority support " the people at Lomprayah said they didn't know what this was

All in all it was a good trip. We arrived 1 hr later, due to „too many people“? The weather and traffic was good, so probably the calculation is a bit too optimistic. Beware!! The bus starting point on our confirmation was different between written and GPS coordinates!!! This must be corrected! Bus driver drove not too fast and secure, one stop for lunch. Ferry was not crowded and due to flat sea very comfortable. If it‘s worth to pay 1400 instead of much less with the other operator, who officially takes 2 hrs more? I don’t know...

Bus was comfy. We were really fast and arrived way to early at the ferry station. Then we had to wait nearly 2 hours for the ferry. Finally we had to take the normal ferry to another pier at koh samui (nathon) instead of the speed ferry we had booked to bangkrak. To smooth us we were taken to our hotel with a minibus for free. I would recommend it since it was very cheap but you need to invest time.
