Almost certainly, but for a small fee an agent on Phangan can book it for you - get a contact phone number for the taxi.

If you catch the Lomprayah Ferry (the fastest ferry option), you can get a transfer to the airport included for 700 Baht, however, the times are not so convenient and you would have to leave KP at 7.15 which gets to the airport at 10.30am.

We also have flight from surat to BKK 15.55 PM and also thinking what would be the best way to go airport .. Raja ferry will arrive Don Sak 13.30PM and Airasia check in desk close 15.10PM. So we have about 1 and half hour to reach airport, is it enough?

Our flight is 26.3.2012,and if someone will do this before us, please inform about it

phanganfreak, presuming the Raja Ferry arrives on time (not always the case) then you will have about 1 1/2 hours from Don Sak to the airport so you will be be pushing it if things run late. I would suggest getting an earlier ferry with either Lomprayah, Seatran or Songserm.

I'm traveling to Koh Samui / Koh Pangan late Aug to early Sept. Will arrive at Surat Thani.

I read that Lomprayah is the best option since it has a service straight from the airport to the Koh Pangan so inbound isn't really the problem.

What I'm worried about is my outbound flight. My flight leaves 11:35am, since Lomprayah doesn't have an earlier schedule I decided to go with Raja Ferry and take the first ferry out which is 5:00am and arrives Donsak around 6:30am. Given that I have to be at the airport by 9:30am (2hrs for international flight) will I have enough time? Also, how can I get to Surat Thani Airport from Donsak Pier? Are there buses available and how much? Should I book in advance?

Thank you!

Hi,

Both Lomprayah and Raja have agents at the airport, no worries there. If you plan on leaving Koh Phangan at 05.00 do note that the journey to Donsak Pier takes 2.5 hours.

You will be able to buy combo tickets for both companies on either Koh Samui or Koh Phangan prior to returning to Surat Thani. I would be inclined to spend the night on the mainland and head to the airport in the morning.

Oh sorry, I'll be leaving Koh Samui to Donsak Pier 5:00am to catch my 11:30am flight to Kuala Lumpur. Is that enough time? Or do I need to spend the night as suggested?

Should be plenty of time 1 1/2 hours to Don Sak, another 1 1/2 hours to airport will make it only around 8am.
