About Travel to Koh Samui


It’s a fairly long journey from Koh Phayam to Koh Samui and there is no simple and fast way of completing that journey.

Flying from Koh Phayam to Koh Samui

The nearest airport to Koh Phayam is Ranong Airport, and there are no direct scheduled flights between Ranong and Koh Samui.

From Koh Phayam it’s a 2 hour journey to reach Ranong Airport. From Ranong Airport you could fly to Bangkok, and then take another flight to Koh Samui. This option, however, is expensive and also not that fast particularly considering that flights from Ranong land at a different airport (Don Mueang Airport) to the one from which flights to Koh Samui depart (Suvarnabhumi Airport).
