Getting to Koh Tao from Bangkok

1. By plane from Koh Samui or from the mainland

In Koh Samui, two airlines operate: Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways, the first one providing more daily flights from Bangkok, making it easier to connect with the ships. There are flights every half hour from 06:00 to 22:00. Check boat schedules for Koh Tao before booking your flight to be sure of connections.

On the mainland, two low-cost airlines offer combined plane-bus-boat tickets: Nok Air and Air Asia. Nok Air connects with Lomprayah Catamaran in Chumphon, Surat Thani or Nakhon Si Thammarat, while Air Asia connects with Seatran Discovery in Surat Thani or Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Another airline, Thai Airways, offers flights to Surat Thani.

2. By coach and boat with combined ticket

It’s the most economical and the most popular way. Two boat companies offer this service: Lomprayah Catamaran and Songserm Express. The air-conditioned coaches leave from Khao San Road in Bangkok and arrive at the docks of these companies in Chumphon. The boat trip lasts from two to three hours depending on the boat.

3. By night train to Chumphon station

Traveling by sleeper train is usually more comfortable than coaching. You have almost a real bed and you can sleep during the ride. The transfer from the train station to the docks is free. It is offered by the boat companies.

Coming from Bangkok, you will need to arrive at Chumphon before 06:00 as the boat leaves for Koh Tao at 07:00. The train may be late. In this case, you will have to take the afternoon boat with the company Lomprayah Catamaran.

On the way to Bangkok, it is better that you take a boat to Koh Tao in the afternoon to take the first sleeper train from Chumphon at 19:30.
