Ferry & Bus

Travel to Koh Tao : Ferry & Bus

Daytime ferry companies Lomprayah, Seatran & Songserm all have joint ferry & bus tickets taking you to popular destinations in South & West Thailand. Lomprayah & Songserm go north to Hua Hin & Bangkok as well.

Every night except Monday there is a car ferry departing from Koh Tao with A/C and bunk beds heading for Chumpon. On arrival with this car ferry we can book you onto the Victoria Point visa run or a minivan/ bus to Bangkok with our partner company Fame Tour.

In both cases you are met at the pier, staff are there to assist & point you in the right direction.

Most nights, with a schedule decided monthly (and often subject to change) there are car ferries going to and from Surat Thanni, if you take this ferry you can link up with many bus options across to the Andaman side and to the South for Malaysia.

Our partner bus company is Surat Thanni is Udomrat Tour.  Any joint bus ticket with the Surat night ferry you will be met as you disembark by the guys from Udomrat Tour. Their office a few minutes stroll away, there you have time for a coffee and the bus picks you up, all very smooth & easy.

Schedules/ timetables often change, if you wish to know which night ferry is running on a certain night / departure times etc.. please email your question to [email protected]


  1. Does the bus have air conditioning?
    Yes, all bus companies we use have a/c as standard although it must be said that on some of the older models the a/c may not be working as well as on new models.

  2. I have extra baggage, will I be charged extra?
    Yes in some cases for extra items such a sports equipment there will often be a charge. Lomprayah for example will weigh your baggage, anything over 15kgs might be subject to an extra charge.

  3. I have a baby and a small child, what’s the cost?
    If the baby can be held in arms then free, if the child takes a seat sometimes full price but with Lomprayah the cost is half price.
