How to get to Koh Phangan
There is no direct flight or bus or train from Bangkok to Koh Phangan. The passengers are required to travel to Samui by air or by bus or by train to Suratthani and from Samui or Suratthani, there is the ferry transfer to cross over to Koh Phangan.
By Bus from Bangkok to Koh Samui
If you would like a more economical way to travel, take the VIP bus from the well-known Khao San Road or from the New Southern Bus Terminal at Boromrat Chonnani Road. The VIP buses are more comfortable than the so-called A/C bus. The tickets are easily available in almost every travel agency in Bangkok. Ferry fee is often included in the price. Please confirm it when you buy the bus ticket.
By Train from Bangkok to Suratthani
Another way to travel is the night train from Hua Lamphong, the Bangkok Railway Station to Suratthani. The sleeping cars are more comfortable to take a ride in this long-hour journey. It is a little bit more expensive than the bus, but you will enjoy a good sleep. Upper beds are less expensive than the lower ones. A private "first class" cabin for two persons is also available. From Suratthani, you can take a ferry ride to Koh Phangan.
Ferry The fastest ferry leaves from Donsak pier on the main land. The ferries are not luxurious in any way, but you will see many of the small surrounding islands if you don’t fall asleep. Some Thai guys on some ferries may try to convince you
that "their" resort on Samui is great. It can be a blank or a prize in that "lottery"
