Getting To Koh Tao;

By Air
Bangkok Airways (www.bangkokair.com) have flights from BKK to the neighbouring island of Koh Samui 12 times daily. The flight takes just over an hour and then from Koh Samui it's just a short boat ride to Koh Tao.

Please note that in order to catch the boats the same day you will need to depart from BKK no later than 10.00am. This allows you to catch the Lomprayah Catarmaran at 12.30pm or the Seatran service at 1.30pm. Both these companies offer a free transfer to the pier from the airport.

Tickets and transfers to the pier can be organised inside Samui Airport.


By Bus
Joint bus + boat tickets are available from travel shops all over Bangkok. Alternatively you can check at www.lomprayah.com.


By Train
Coming from Bangkok, another option to get to Koh Tao is by overnight sleeper train and speed ferry. In Bangkok you need to catch either the 6.20pm train to Surat Thani (Train #167) or the 7.30pm train to Nakhon Si Thammarat (Train #85). Both of these will stop at the port city of Chumphon from where you need to catch one of the boat services.

The train station in Bangkok is called "Sa-tarnee Hwalumpong" and any taxi will be able to take you there. Tickets can be bought at the station and it's advisable to arrive a couple of hours before. There is a tourist information desk at the station entrance and the guys there speak excellent English. They will be happy to help you organise your tickets. This is a free service.

On arrival in Chumphon at around 5.00 - 6.00am, there are several operators who have offices directly on the platform. From here you can take a free transfer to the pier as well as organise tickets. The ferry services start at 7.00am and the crossing takes just over two hours.

Alternatively, the 2.45pm train to Butterworth (Train #35) will get to Chumphon around 10.30 - 11.00pm which would give you the option of staying one night in Chumphon and then catching the boat the following day.
