How to get to Koh Phangan

Planning a trip to Koh Phangan? Want to experience the infamous Full Moon Party? Read to find out how to get the small Thai Island.

There are a few ways to get to Koh Phangan but I will let you know the one I feel is the easiest.

Fly to Koh Samui Airport

The closest airport to Koh Phangan is the airport of Koh Samui. From here it is a short drive to the many piers of Koh Samui, all of which have boats going to Koh Phangan throughout the day.

There is a taxi stand in the airport with official taxis ready to take you to the different piers. You can book a boat here too but you will pay a premium for not booking in advance. They will give you a sticker with Koh Phangan on so they can easily shepherd you around.

Furthermore if you book your ticket in advance you know which pier you have to go to from the airport and can book the best time in accordance to the arrival time of your flight.

Get on the boat

A little obvious but I have to cover all the bases! When you get to your pier either; buy a ticket if you haven’t already or take your ticket to the kiosk to get the official boarding ticket for that particular boat company.

With your ticket, board the boat when you get called up.

Depending on your pier the journey time will differ slightly, but they will be around 30-60 minutes.
