Getting to Ko Tao

Ko Tao, ThailandKo Samui  -  Ko Phangan

There are two options to get to Ko Tao: by bus and boat from Bangkok via Chumphon (check Lomprayah) or by plane and boat via Ko Samui or Surathani.

The bus needs about 7 hours from Bangkok Khao San road or southern bus terminal to Chumphon, from where the Lomprayah catamaran transfers to Ko Tao in about 90 minutes.

The quickest but most expensive way is by direct plane to Ko Samui (Bangkokair from Suvarnabhumi or Utapao). Cheaper but longer is a flight from Bkk Don Mueang to Suratthani or Nakhon Si Thammarat and a following bus ride to Don Sak pier and a boat transfer to Ko Samui. Airasia and Nokair offer combi tickets for the total trip online.

The northern jetties on Samui have several boats to Koh Tao (via Ko Phangan). Tickets can be bought all over Samui or directly at the jetty.
