Getting to Paradise!!!
Koh Tao is located in the Gulf of Thailand just a short boat ride away from the bigger island of Koh Samui. There are a number of options for getting to Koh Tao depending on where you are coming from and your budget.
From Bangkok

Bus and Boat: We have 2 offices located on Kao San Rd in Bangkok. Tickets can be arranged for you at our offices or made directly with the company, please make reservations at least a day in advance. To see a schedule of the prices, routes and times to and from Koh Tao visit the website www.lomprayah.com

Train and Boat: The State Railway of Thailand has daily departures to Chumphon and combined train and bus options can be purchased. The best train to take is the 2nd or 1st class sleeper trains which travel through the night. The express (EXP SP 85) train leaves at 19:15 from Bangkok and arrives in Chumphon around 5:00 am. Once is the Chumphon the boat leaves around 7:30 in the morning arriving at 10:30 on Koh Tao. Prices depend on classes, train reservations can also be booked at our office on Kao San Rd.

Airplane and Boat: If long hauls are not for you then I recommend flying to the island of Koh Samui and then taking a boat from there. Tickets can be purchased on-line from Bangkok Airways www.bangkokair.com There are daily departures from 6:00 to 19:40. If you would like to arrive on Koh Tao the same day that you leave Bangkok then make sure you take the flight that leaves at 10:10 or any earlier flights. There are 2 boats to Koh Tao daily one at 8:00 am and then the last ferry at 12 noon. Once at the Samui airport tickets can be purchased for the Lomprayah Catamaran or the Seatran Company, both boats are roughly a 2 hour journey. Tickets for both companies are 600 baht and they provide pick-up from the airport to the pier.

For planning your holiday and itinerary boat schedules can be found at www.lomprayah.com and airline tickets schedules at www.bangkokair.com Both websites offer online booking.


From Krabi, Phuket, Phi Phi

If coming from the south directly to Koh Tao then make your way to Surat Thani. From there a night boat leaves daily at 23:00 and arrives at 5:00 the following morning. Tickets are 500 baht. This ride is not particularly comfortable for all and another option would be to fly from Phuket to Koh Samui and then take the boat here
