Getting to Koh Samui

How to get there by car, bus, boat or plane

The most convenient way to get to Koh Samui is flying with Bangkok Airways either from Bangkok itself, or from Singapore, Phuket or Pattaya. There are over twenty flights a day from Bangkok alone. Alternatively, several ferries and catamarans run from Surat Thani or Don Sak on the Thai mainland. If you're travelling from Bangkok, it's a good idea to combine the ferry with a sleeper train from Hualumphong Station.

Ferry times change frequently, though touts wait for arriving trains and buses in Surat to guide potential customers to their company. Long waits are common, so a degree of patience is necessary. Boats also connect to Koh Tao and Koh Phangan from Samui. Getting a ferry off the island is much easier, and most travel agents will have up-to-date schedules and fares. Approximately ten car ferries leave from Don Sak to Lipa Noi every day. Get there as early as possible and be prepared to wait for at least a couple of hours.
