How To Get Here
The easiest way to get to Koh Phangan is via Koh Samui Airport.
From Koh Samui, a fast boat takes only 30 minutes to Koh Phangan. You can buy the boat ticket at Koh Samui airport (which will also include transportation from the airport to the boat).
The last boat leaves at 5:00 p.m., so be sure to plan your arrival time to Koh Samui accordingly.
Bangkok Airways has numerous flights to the Koh Samui Airport daily. You can fly into Koh Samui from international destinations as well.
A cheaper option is a flight to the Surat Thani International Airport. Budget airlines including Nok Air and AirAsia fly to this airport every day and offer flight and ferry services (the ferry will take between 3-5 hour journey). The last boat leaves at 4 p.m.
If you are on a budget, it may be ideal to take a bus or a train. However, this is going to be a long travel.
The bus ride from Bangkok can take 10 to 12 hours to get to Surat Thani and normally departs from Bangkok in the evening. From Surat Thani, you will need to get a ferry the rest of the way to Koh Phangan (3-5 hours). Tour and transportation companies will normally sell a joint ticket for both bus and ferry.
You can also book your bus online.
By train- the overnight train is more comfortable than the bus, however, this is going to be 14-16 hours of travel through train, bus, and ferry,
The train leaves Bangkok from the Hua Lamphong station.
After you get off the train, an additional bus ride is needed to get to the pier to take the ferry to the island.
