Flight times problem

On wednesday I'm flying from Chiang mai to koh samui.

I have booked with Panviamn, who pick up from the pier at 1, but my flight gets in at 1135. There are a few ferries leaving at 12 from Maenam, but I won't make them. Should I just get the first ferry I can and a taxi to thong nai pan?

There will be songtaows waiting at tongsala pier for every ferry that comes in from Samui. and Koh Tao/Chomporn

Prices are from 100bht per person and 400 if you want to go on your own.

The mini bus,s at Samui airport will take you to maenam pier for 100 bht.

Cant remember the ferry times but they do differ from the timetables on the net a bit.

Lomprayah fast ferry has a special on at the moment of 200 bht including pickup from your hotel so they may pick you up at the airport if you book your ticket there when you arrive?

From memory the Lomprayha ferry left Maenam for Phangan at 12.30 a week and a half ago.

Hi,

The special price concerns a round trip only (400 Baht).

The one way cost 300 baht with Lomprayah.

Have a good day

Company : Lomprayah.

Be careful ! The prices on their website about promotions are valid if you pay by credit card and only on the website. They are different on the pier at Samui and Phangan

Hi steve,we got it for 200 from samui to phangan but paid 250 from phangan back to samui last week.

The Samui to Phangan included pick up from hotel but the Phangan to Samui didnt.

You paid 200 bath for one way ? It's crazy ! Because normally you have two prices 250 and 300 baht.

That depends on the schedule which you take. You're very lucky

Yes Steve I picked up a flyer from Samui that had a special of 200 o/w 400 return,we only got one way to Phangan but on our return to Samui the price depended on what time you left.We got the 11.30 am back to Samui ithink it was for 250 with drop off at Samui hotel? But the later time was 350.

If you arrive in Samui at 11.35 why dont you take a taxi from the airport to the peir and chill for an hour until you are being picked up at 1.

I'm being picked up from the pier on Koh Phangan at 1, I'm just sceptical if I can make it thru the airport, down to maenam and on a ferry in less than an hour.

You have a lot of traffic on the main road and i think it'll be hard to do this in 1 hour (boat + minibus Lomprayah)
