Hi there

I assumed you booked the combo airs+ land + ferry tickets..if so then you needn't to worry about timing because you will be guide through as to what amd where to do. If catamaran then is will be Lomprayah.com/ then you will be heading to Nathon pier ( Nathon town is the main administrative of koh Samui).

hi there

it takes about 1 hour from airport to the ferry then an other 1 hour to samui

plus delays

you should be connected all the way thru to nathon

just allow the time delay

you could also try the bus/ferry route from bangkok

cheers

Shouldn't be any issues, Nok Air are reliable and have been operating these combo services for quite a long time now.

Hi there! I want to buy the Nok air ferry and flight to get from Koh Tao to Bangkok and in the Nok Air web they have this:

14:45 ferry (Lomprayah) to Chumphon arriving at 16:15

transfer by coach to the airport

18:40 flight to Bangkok

I am not very sure that the bus that takes you to the airport will take less than 1:30 h ...

Are the ferries and the buses punctual? because I see this very tight schedule... since we are supposed to be 1 or 1:30 h before the plane departs...

Do you think Nok Air will be responsible if we miss the flight because of any delay?

Hi

I don't know how long for traveling by bus from pier to airport ( chumporn airport) but If is stated in their website then that's mean they have done so many time and Yes I think is their responsibility to get you on time for flight( provides up buy combo tickets not separately).

Note : 1 1/2 hours by bus on this thread we are refers to from Nakon Sri Thammarat to Donsak pier which the passengers catch the ferry to koh Samui. They are different pier and area from where you are going.

Talking from experience - do not worry for a thing, i pass all that way and it was flawless all the way through. even with rough sea on the way back, they manage to catch the flight back to Bangkok and if i ever travel to those islands i'll use the same services!

When I book a flight on nokair.com to Ko Samui (it says flight + ferry service) does this booking include the cost of the ferry? Seems like it should, but the website doesn't really specify.

Thanks!
