About Travel to Ranong


Booking a direct service from your hotel to Ranong Bus Station tends to be a much easier and less expensive option than attempting to complete the journey independently. There are several stages to the journey and the difficulty in trying to organise your own travel on this route is organising land transport to and from the various ferry piers.

Stage 1: Travel to Koh Phayam Pier

Koh Phayam Pier is on the eastern side of Koh Phayam. The most popular place to stay on Koh Phayam is Ao Yai (Long Beach) on the western side of the island, which is 5.1 km by road from Koh Phayam Pier.

There are only limited taxi services available on Koh Phayam, so transport from Ao Yai to Koh Phayam Pier needs to be organised in advance.

Stage 2: Travel from Koh Phayam Pier to the mainland

There are two different types of boat service from Koh Phayam Pier to Ranong:

  • The slower of the two services is the Tai Kak Ferry which takes 2 hours 00 minutes to complete the 29 km long sea crossing.
  • The other type of boat service is a speedboat service which takes 40 to 45 minutes to travel to a different mainland ferry pier 31 km by sea from Koh Phayam.
Stage 3: Travel from the mainland ferry pier to Ranong Bus Station

The Tai Kak Ferry service arrives in Ranong at Tai Kak Pier, which is 7.8 km by road from Ranong Bus Station.

Speedboat services arrive into Ranong Pier which is 6.3 km by road from Ranong Bus Station.

Cost Comparison

Per person it costs about 100 THB more to take a direct service from your hotel in Koh Phayam all the way to Ranong Bus Station compared to the cost of a ferry or speedboat service only, not including any land transport connections. For people travelling along or in small groups it is cheaper to take a direct service than it is to take taxis to and from the various ferry piers and then to buy ferry or speedboat tickets separately.
