Best Option: Lomprayah Ferry

The Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company is slightly more expensive than the Songserm and Seatran Discovery ferries but the service is much better. Large items of luggage are taken on and off the boat by the staff and the seating on the Lomprayah ferries is better and there is more of it.

There many shared and private taxi services on Koh Phangan and it is normally very simple to get a taxi in time for the boat. If you are staying in Mae Haad, Than Sadet, or Thong Nai Pan you should book a taxi in advance. My advice is to ask at your hotel or resort about getting to Thong Sala on time for a boat connection as they can normally provide you with the best advice about local taxi services and prices.
