How to get to Koh Samui from Suratthani

What about

Say ‘Koh Samui’ and immediately a vivid picture of a true paradise island comes to your mind. Idyllic beaches, crystal clear waters, lush tropical greenery dotted with white, yellow and red stars of frangipani flowers and spiced with fancy boutique hotels, island-style parties raving through the night, colourful local markets and modern swish malls – it is all about Samui. Definitely more upscale than its neighbours, party-rocked Koh Phangan and diving-crazy Koh Tao, Koh Samui still caters for everybody. And while it is a great place for pampering yourself in world-class spas and resorts, savouring the freshest seafood dishes in candle-lit romantic restaurants, Koh Samui welcomes travellers of all budgets and styles, from modest backpackers looking for simple pleasures of the beach life to discerning upscale holiday-makers.

From Suratthani to Koh Samui

Suratthani is the main starting point on the mainland for your sea travel to Koh Samui. Wherever you start you journey from – be it Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket or Hua Hin – you will not avoid Suratthani on your way to Koh Samui – unless you prefer a longer and more expensive route via Chumphon, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, which is in fact quite an illogical thing to do if Koh Samui is your first island destination in the Gulf.

Ferries for Koh Samui leave from Donsak Pier, about 65km northeast of the city. You can buy tickets to Koh Samui from Donsak, but unless you arrive by one of the buses which drop off their passengers right on the pier (e.g. Yellow Bus), it is not a good idea as you will need to organise transport from Suratthani train station, bus station or town to the pier.

From Donsak to Koh Samui

Phantip Travel sells tickets for large Seatran ferries leaving from Seatran pier in Donsak. These large car ferries take 1½ hour to reach Koh Samui where they dock at Nathon pier. Tickets cost from THB250 to TH300.

Seatran Discovery starts from the same pier in Donsak but heads to Bangrak Seatran pier on Koh Samui (THB400, two hours). It is especially convenient if you are planning to stay in the northern part of the island, i.e. Big Buddha beach.

From Suratthani Town to Koh Samui

The most convenient way to get to Koh Samui from Suratthani Town is to buy a joint ticket with Phantip Travel or any other operator offering similar service. Buses or minivans normally pick up their passengers at the bus terminals at Kaset 1 or Kaset 2 markets in the city centre and bring them to Donsak where travellers board the ferry heading to Nathon pier on Koh Samui. Prices are more or less the same (from THB250 bus+ferry) and the whole trip takes about 3½ hours including waiting time at the Donsak pier.

Note though that if you arrive to Suratthani by train from any of the northern destinations, including Bangkok, it is not absolutely necessary to get from the station to Suratthani first. Several operators offer transfer from Suratthani railway station in Phun Phin to Donsak and Koh Samui, and buying such a combination ticket saves you both time and money. The only reason why you may need to call to Suratthani proper first is if you arrive with the morning or one of the afternoon trains from Bangkok (#43, for example) and need to spend the night in Suratthani or want to explore the province – which boasts a couple of worth visiting national parks – before heading to Koh Samui.

Note also that many interprovincial buses now use the long distance bus station located 7 km west of town on the way to Phun Phin, but sometimes you can ask the driver to drop you off in the city instead. If not, use orange coloured songthaews to get from the bus station to the centre of the city (THB15).

From Suratthani train station to Koh Samui

Do not be misled: Suratthani train station is located in the town of Phun Phin, 20 km west of Suratthani and about 90 km west of Donsak Pier from where ferries to Koh Samui leave. If you arrive to Suratthani by train from any of the northern destinations, including Bangkok, it is exactly where you are going to get off your transport.

The fastest transfer from Suratthani train station to Koh Samui is offered by Lomprayah which sells joint bus+high speed catamaran tickets (THB500). The trip from Suratthani train station to Nathon Pier on Koh Samui with Lomprayah takes 2½ hours only. There is one departure a day from the train station at 8.30am, which gathers passengers arriving from Bangkok by night trains (#83, 85, 167, 173 or 41).

There is a slower and cheaper service by Phantip Travel which sends three morning buses a day – at 7am, 8am and 9am. Total travel time to Nathon Pier from Suratthani train station with Phantip is about four hours, but tickets cost THB300 only.

From Suratthani airport to Koh Samui

Several airlines flying between Suratthani and Bangkok include transfer to Koh Samui in their ticket price. If it is not your case, check Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery, both of which sell combination bus/van+ferry tickets from Suratthani airport to Koh Samui. Pricewise and service-wise both companies are very much alike: tickets cost from THB600 to THB700, but Lomprayah catamaran docks at Nathon Pier on Koh Samui, and thus the whole journey takes a bit longer than three hours; and Seatran Discovery circumvallates the island reaching the northern Bangrak Seatran Pier, which takes longer (from 4½ hours to 5½ hours depending on the departure time). There are four departures a day from Suratthani airport with Lomprayah (8.30am, 10.50am, 1.30pm and 4pm) and three – with Seatran Discovery (8.30am, 10.45am, 11.20am).

From Koh Samui to Koh Phangan and Koh Tao

Though located in the same part of the Gulf, the three neighbouring islands, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao, differ greatly in atmosphere, character and activities on offer. It is a good idea to compare all the three as soon as you find yourself in the lower part of the Gulf. If you are short of time, consider at least visiting Koh Phangan which lies quite close to Koh Samui: Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery whisk you from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan in mere 20 or 30 minutes. Sea travel to Koh Tao, further up the Gulf, requires over two hours, but it is a must-visit island if you are planning to join the army of happy PADI or SSI certificate holders.

From Koh Samui to Koh Phangan

There are three Seatran Discovery ferries a day from Bangrak on Koh Samui to Koh Phangan (THB400) at 8am, 1pm and 4.30pm. Lomprayah sails from Maenam peir on Koh Samui to Koh Phangan (THB400) twice a day at 8am and 12.30pm. Both arrive to Thong Sala pier. If the sea is mossy and you are prone to seasickness, opt for Seatran, which cuts through the wave opposite to Lomprayah catamaran which actually rides the swell.
There are also private ferries operating between Big Buddha pier on Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. They are a bit more expensive but on the days when Full Moon Parties are rocking Koh Phangan, are a welcome alternative.

From Koh Samui to Koh Tao

After calling to Koh Phangan, both Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery proceed to Koh Tao reaching the island in about two hours. They moor at Mae Haad on Koh Tao and sell tickets at about the same price (THB600-THB650).

There are two more options for hopping between Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao which are Songserm and Raja ferries. Both are much slower and cheaper: choose them only if you really need to spare a few baht.

Can I transport my car to Samui?

There are two operators which provide car transportation to Samui. Seatran leaves from Donsak on the mainland delivering passengers and their vehicles to its pier in Nathon. Raja ferry, also from Donsak, heads to its own port in Lipa Noi on the western coast of Samui. Choose port-wise as both services are equal in price and quality. Note that you may have to make a long queue to board the ferry with your car while heading back to the mainland. To avoid this, book your ticket in advance. Another important thing is that you cannot transport your car from Samui to the nearby Koh Phangan directly; you will need to sail back to Donsak and then make a new journey to Koh Phangan instead.

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 (songtaews) 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.

Blogger report: Paige Hiller (High Speed Ferry Seatran Discovery) 06-Oct-2017 09:20

Passenger reviews out of total 20,525 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.

Everything was perfect and on time. I ordered an option bus + ferry + taxi to any hotel on the island. Now I'am enjoying a holiday at Koh Samui :)

First Class cabin was comfortable. I chose to eat on train. Food and coffee arrived near cold. Food is expensive. Charges added. Time wise, even though held up at one station for half an hour, due to incident, we still arrived on time at Surat Thani. Overall good experience but I will avoid train food next time.

Ferry itself was fine, but our flight was delayed and so we missed the pre-booked ferry. I tried to contact them as soon as I knew we'd miss it but there was no response or information about redeeming it for the next availability ferry and we needed to book again and was charged more by the guy at the airport counter. The 2 stars are purely for the service we recieved.

We used 3 types of transport from the airport to our hotel - bus, ferry, shuttle - and everything went exactly on time and was very well organised. Recommend.

The transfer from airport to pier was quite easy if you paid attention. The bus left shortly after I recieved my bags from the airline and checked in with Seatran. The liason pointed to go around the bus but did not say for what ... to drop off your bag in the undercarriage. The bus was very comfortable and clean. Only downside was this enormous cockroach viewed walking across the floor and then up the wall into the curtains. It seemed very out of place and kept me on edge for the remainder of the transfer.

Clean facilities and friendly staff , but 1h layover to wait for the ferry could be shorter and when we arrived at our port a driver from the operator company picked us up then turned around halfway and said we were the wrong passengers and we had to then find a cab and pay for hotel transfer.

We had a shuttle from the train to the Tapee pier and also the transfer to the hotel. It was all invluded and fine. 1 star is missing because the zransport to the hotel brought us to the wrong hotel and so we had to use a taxi to the right one.

The ferry stuff put my luggage to the koh phangan luggage. I was on the way to koh samui. After 10 minutes in heavy rain i was completely wet and got my luggage. Another passenger missed his luggage as well. One guy was on the way to koh phangan and his luggage was already unloaded on Koh Samui. He was lucky that he came out and checked what the guys there doing. Otherwise his luggage would be on the neighbor island and he would realize it when he arrives. Bad service from the ferry. Bus and minivan transport recommended. Very good and fast!

In general it was great we could take an earlier bus after landing in Surat Thani airport and exchanging the vouchers to tickets. However, it was a bit confusing not to get any receipt (as there were several buses to different destinations) and further on after arriving at the Donsak pier rushing to swap the ticket for a plastic pass and to catch a ferry. All in all it was ok

Once the train arrived we were met on the platform by lamprayah staff who directed us across the road to the registration point for our journey to the ferry and onward to koh samui. Our tickets were promptly checked and we were offered a minibus collection service on koh samui to take us to our hotel. We accepted the 150 baht per person price which put our mind at rest. Both the bus ride to the ferry and the ferry journey itself were very comfortable. The whole service was efficient and well organised so I would certainly recommend it to others. It was recommended to me by my daughter who used the whole service from Bangkok to koh samui last year.

In the end everything worked out fine. I was even able to prebook taxi from arrival pier to hotel. Transfer from train station to bus was chaotic, with about 5 Thai employees excitedly giving directions, some contradicting each other as to where to wait which bus to take etc.., definitely better to take a combo ticket as the bus transfer from train station to pier is a 90 Minute drive.

It felt a little chaotic on arrival at Surathanit. There was someone holding a Lomprayah sign up and directing us to an office opposite the station, but just a man there telling us to sit down (on the cafe tables and chairs). However once the lady in charge arrived some order was restored. You hand over your voucher and get your ticket. We would have liked to have known in advance that transfers to hotels could be arranged with Lomprayah - we had arranged our own transfer. The boat itself was roomy, plenty of seats and smooth. The other negative was that we had to grab our own cases on the boat from a huge pile and that was a bit of a rugby scrum!! But in the whole, a good service.

Train was late, pick up st the train station was kind of slow then transfer to the ferry very smooth, long wait on the ferry before departure friendly staff but no explanation about when we will. E leaving etc then we took the transfer with the ferry company but it was a minibus with other persons so it took a while to leave the pier and dropped at hotel, private taxi are same price and would have been way fastet

★★☆☆☆
The whole transfer was supposed to consist of three elements: bus transfer from airport to ferry, Seatran Discovery ferry transfer and taxi transfer from ferry to my hotel. While there were no issues with the bus transfer, later on it wasn't so good. It turned out that the Seatran Discovery broke down (understandable), so we had to take the regular Seatran ferry instead - while this is no problem it turned out that the transfer to our hotel on Koh Samui was no longer valid as the ferry travels to a different pier than the Seatran Discovery does. The lady working at the Donsak pier informed us that we could have a new transfer provided if we payed another 300 bahts. It's not a high price but very poor customer service. We did that but why we weren't offered one for free remains a mystery.

Confusion from the employees at the info point led to us missing the ferry (everyone else board it without problems). They simply didn’t know what to do with our voucher. Had to wait 1 hour for the next one and than again another 45min until our pickup was ready. I’d be better off buying tickets at the counter instead of prebooking everything.

Instructions were not clear once we got off the train and had to find our bus. There was a lot of confusion as to which bus to board and different agents telling us different things. Some said to wait, some said to get in a bus... eventually everything worked out, but it would be helpful if there was s 12Go agent helping people who just arrived by train to find the right bus.

The train was alright but the bus to the Pier was full so we had to wait around for a van. My ticket on the ferry was to Bangrak Pier but I was taken to Nathon Pier. I was told there would be a van to pick me up and there was but it was mass confusion where to go. There were 20-30 people standing around trying to figure out where we needed to go and nobody that spoke English well. All we saw was a sign showing a hotel transfer for 150bht, eventually after a few vans picked people up, they motioned for me and we were on our way....or not. He took me to the opposite pier and got into another van that had previously told me to wait in a certain area. I get people don’t necessarily know English here but it’s easy enough to create signs so there is some level of organization.

We chose Seatran for once reason only, we thought that the ferry was coming into Bangrak Pier, as advertised. There was no communication about having to get a bus from Nathon. Secondly, our flight arrived into URT at 10am, we left by 10:20 instead of 11:20 (not moaning, that’s brilliant) the driver got us there in excellent time. Around 12pm. Seatran would only let us get he 3pm ferry. We had some lunch at what was a pretty good complex and had to wait around. Would’ve been nice if they could move us to an earlier ferry. Then we arrived on the island and the driver took us 1 mile past our hotel and we had to get off and walk! That’s the reason for 2 stars.

It was so easy and organized to travel with Lomprayah company because of 12Go’s coordinated and clear instructions. Everyone who we met on this trip from the12Go’s ticket pick-up office to the train staff to the Lomprayah bus coordinators were incredibly kind, welcoming, and easy to understand. I will always book with 12Go in the future. You should too if you are thinking about it!

Everything ran smoothly, the only problem was my seasickness on the boat. I asked for a vomit bag on the boat - I better shouldn't have, because the bag had a smell that almost made me vomit - it smelled like a whole chemical factory, damn! Please, responsible people, buy some better vomit bags! The rest of the trip was absolutely alright.

disgusting, uncomfortable and disorganized trip. when i checked in at the counter at the airport they only gave me a bus ticket. the bus was now scheduled late. the ferry station was packed and insane and we were given no directions for where to go. i saw a check in line so i went there. it took a very long time there before getting to the front and they didn't know my hotel or it's name. just said get on the boat. leave your legs at home for the boat. it was a very uncomfortable ride but when we arrived no one could tell me which van to go to because everyone else had there van number before boarding the ferry. lines blurred into other lines ... english (as expected) was low. i had to just refuse to leave my van and show a map in o
