Get to Koh Tao, Thailand
Most people enter Thailand by flying into Bangkok.
From Bangkok there are three main options for
getting down to Koh Tao island.
The fastest but most expensive route: Fly to Samui.
You can pickup flights from Bangkok
direct down to Koh Samui for just a few thousand
baht. From Samui take one of the high speed ferries
across to Koh Tao island (Lomprayah Catamaran
or Seatran) - these cost about 550 baht per person
and take about an hour and a half.
If you shop
around you may even be able to get a flight direct
from your country of origin to Samui, cutting
out the Bangkok bit.
compromise : Train to Chumphon
has a great rail service. From the airport you
need to get a meter taxi to the main Hualamphong
train station in town (costing about 200 baht).
From there you can catch a very comfortable overnight
train down to Chumphon. You can get a bed in an
air conditioned cabin for under 1000 baht, waking
up fresh at your destination in the morning! From
Chumphon you take a high speed ferry to Koh Tao
island the same mornining. This will take about
an hour and a half and costing about 500 baht.
budget route : Bus from Bangkok
this isn't too bad. From the airport get a meter
taxi to Khao San Road (about 200 baht). At Khao
San Road you can book a combined bus and boat
ticket direct to Koh Tao. This will be an overnight
bus ride to Chumphon, then boat the rest of the
way and should cost less than 1000 baht all in.
- there are a few 'sharks' around the Khao San
area, out for the na?ve tourist. My advice would
be to go into one of the official looking travel
agents and book with your ticket with them. Go
for the Lomprayah or Seatran services, you should
be able to book one of these in most agents. These
are fast, comfortable services and usually show
DVDs on the way down. You don't want to end up
getting crammed on a mini bus or 'local' service.
from Pier in Koh Tao
As part of your online reservation with Silver
Sands, we include a taxi pickup service from the
pier in Koh Tao.
Just let us know which ferry you'll be arriving
on [at what time], and we'll make sure there's
someone waiting on the pier to meet you and bring
you down to the resort. Easy!
We have 34
rooms & bungalows, providing both fan and
air conditioned accommodation in central Sairee
Beach, Koh Tao.
