Other Bus Companies


There are other cheaper companies offering the joint bus and boat service but we recommend that you do not book with them. What certain other operators (but not the Lomprayah Company) have been known to do in the past is to stop on the roadside for 20 to 30 minutes during the journey in order to steal valuables from their customers when the passengers cannot see what is going on. The other safe alternative is to take the Government Bus from the Southern Bus Terminal.

Travel in Koh Phangan


Both services arrive at Thong Sala Pier in Koh Phangan. Thong Sala is the main town in the South of the island. On arrival there are normally lots of shared taxis waiting to take people to all points on the island.

The prices of shared taxis are not fixed and you need to agree a price before depart. Expect to pay around 200 THB for the trip from Thong Sala to Haad Rin and 300 THB to Thong Nai Pan. It will cost more if you want to hire the whole vehicle. There are some hotels and resorts within a reasonable walking distance of Thong Sala Pier.
