Please note, however, that the expensive part of the journey from Koh Tao to Krabi is the ferry journey and the cost savings which can be achieved doing the journey independently via Surat Thani city are likely to be no more than 200 to 300 THB, for which you will add at least 2 hours onto the journey time and the inconvenience of travelling from Donsak ferry pier to Surat Thani (a 90 minute journey) to get board a bus or minivan to Krabi. Many frequent travellers on the Koh Tao to Krabi route choose to book a direct service in advance because it is much quicker.

Mae Haad Pier is the main ferry pier on Koh Tao, and all major ferry services leave from here. Mae Haad Pier is near Sairee Beach where the island’s main town is also located. From other parts of the island you can travel to Mae Haad pier by shared taxi or taxi boat.
