Chumphon airport?

Please excuse my stupidity... I can't find out where Chumphon airport is! I'm trying to work out how to get off the Lomprayah from Koh Tao and over to the airport to fly to Bangkok. Any ideas?

I do not know the exact distance between the pier and the airport but I would guess perhaps 40-50 km or something like that, Chumphon Airport is east of the main highway north of town.

However, if you are using Lomprayah morning service then you can buy a ferry+transfer+airfare to Bangkok on Lomprayah and Solar Air from the Lomprayah website so it is all included.

If you are using the afternoon Lomprayah then there is also a combo ticket offered by Nok Air which again ferry+transfer+airfare to Bangkok, that you can book on the Nok Air website.

There is no ferry that connects with the morning Nok Air flight

Chumphon Airport is located in Pathio or Pathiu (alternative spelling) The airport is about 30km North from Chumphon and the pier to Ko Tao. Happy Air happyair.co.th and Nok Air www.nokair.com fly daily from Bangkok to Chumphon Airport in Pathio. Nearby the airport are many beaches and islands. The airport has a shuttle service to the city and connections to the islands so flying via Chumphon Airport is a great way to travel to Ko Samui, Ko Tao. It's uncrowded and unspoilt so exploring this area you get to see a different face of Thailand. The website www.pathio.net has more information on the Chumphon Airport and surrounds.
