Booking in Advance
We recommend booking your tickets well in advance particularly around the period a few days before the monthly Full Moon Party which is held in Haad Rin on the South East Coast of Koh Phangan. The Full Moon Party attracts between 20,000 to 40,000 people depending on the time of year and as a consequence travel tickets to Koh Phangan can often be entirely booked out upto a week before the party happens.
If you plan to go to the party it also makes sense to book a hotel in Haad Rin a month or more in advance as it is often difficult to find even a bed in the dormitory during the Full Moon Party period.
About the Lomprayah Company
The Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company provides an excellent standard of service. The journey commences with a luxury bus departing from the Lomprayah Office on the Kanjanomai Alley, which is 650 metres (9 minutes walk) from Hua Hin Train Station. The journey starts with a 4 hour 12 minute (293 km) journey by luxury bus to Thong Makham Noi Ferry Pier. From there passengers transfer to one of the Lomprayah Company’s fleet of 5 high speed catamaran ferries for a sea crossing of around 3 hours 30 minutes to Koh Phangan via the islands of Koh Tao and Koh Nangyuan. These high speed ferries have seating inside and outside and a small shop inside selling drinks, snacks and sandwiches. The morning departure at 08.30 is the more popular option and a drink and snack is provided. The evening departure is much slower. On the 23.30 evening departure the bus stops on route for a long break (about 2 hours) at a roadside restaurant.
