Surat Thani to Ko Tao

I am travelling in October with my sister and we only have very limited time in Thailand so really want to make the most of it. We land in Surat Thani on the 23rd November and leave on the 1st of December. In this time we want to work our way from Ko Tao to Ko Pha Ngan then onto Ko Samui where we depart early on the 1st.

We therefore want to know if there is a direct ferry from Surat Thani pier to Ko Tao and a rough price that we can expect to pay for this.

Any tips or advice would be great

Thanks in advance

Check www.lomprayah.com

I believe there are two departures daily from Don Sak pier at 10.10 (arrive 14.15) and 16.00 (arrive 18.45).

You'd be better off flying into Chumphon with Nok Air and getting the ferry to Koh Tao first, otherwise you are doubling back on yourself by going to Surat Thani and then having a long ferry ride to Koh Tao.

Agree with cassnu, to reach Koh Tao is better flying into Chumpon.

However late november it's not a good time to enjoy these islands, there is monsoon season.
