Donsak Pier near Surat Thani

Ferry Port and Koh Samui Travel Information

Donsak Pier, some 40 km south of Surat Thani, is the port of exit for many travellers to Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. As you enter Donsak Pier you’ll come across a large car park where vehicles queue. Passengers alight here to purchase tickets at the booths in the terminus.

The naturally-lit terminus itself is where travellers can grab a meal, shop for snacks, withdraw funds from one of the several ATM machines and generally relax in front of a TV while waiting for their ferry to arrive.

Food and dining at Donsak Pier

The restaurant at Donsak may seem at first not more than a canteen but on closer inspection, it reveals itself to have a good choice of prepared-that-morning plates displayed buffet style.

Simply make whatever food combination you wish from the covered food trays by pointing to your choice. Dishes include several curries, fried and boiled eggs, fried vegetables, basil and chicken and much more. The nice surprise is that it’s all very, very affordable.

Ferry passengers and drivers at Donsak Pier

For safety reasons, passengers embark separately from cars so non-drivers will find themselves catching up on the latest Thai soap operas on the waiting-room TV whether they like it or not.

If this bores you, you can shop for snacks and drinks in the convenience store or wait in the central area which is equipped with benches but you won’t be allowed access to outdoors or anywhere near the ferry until the incoming cars and passengers have fully disembarked.
