Travel from Koh Samui to Hat Yai

To travel from Koh Samui to Hat Yai you need to take a ferry to mainland and then a bus, train or minivan to Hat Yai. The time consuming part of the journey is not the ferry or bus journey itself, but the time it takes to get from the mainland ferry ports in Donsak to Surat Thani city to catch a bus or a train. A much quicker and easier option is to book a joint ferry and bus service which will take you direct from the mainland ferry port to Hat Yai.
