About travel to Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport
The easiest way to travel from Koh Tao to Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport is to take the direct daily service operated by the Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Service. The two alternatives to taking this fast direct service are:
- To take a ferry to Chumphon and then a bus or train south to Nakhon Si Thammarat.
- Or, to take a joint ferry and bus service to Surat Thani and then a bus or train south to Nakhon Si Thammarat.
The big advantage of taking the Lomprayah direct service is that it takes you direct to the airport. If you take a bus or train from either Chumphon or Surat Thani the arrival point will be either the main bus station, or Nakhon Si Thammarat Train Station, both of which are located around 17 km by road to the south of Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport. Public transport between Nakhon Si Thammarat City and Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport is scarce, so more likely than not you would need to take a private taxi from the city to the aiport which will add to the expense of the journey.
- Location of Mae Haad Pier in Koh Tao:
The journey with the Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company from Koh Tao to Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport departs from Mae Haad Pier, which is just to the south of Sairee Beach and the most built up part of the island. At the moment, as demand rebuilds after the pandemic, the Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company is using a combination of high speed catamaran ferries and speed boat to complete the sea crossing to the mainland. Both ferries and catamaran’s will stop on route at Koh Phangan and Koh Samui before reaching the mainland.
- Location of Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport:
The point of arrival on the mainland for Lomprayah High Speed ferry services is Laem Thuat Pier, which is in the Donsak District of Surat Thani Province. At Leam Thuat Pier passengers with the Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company transfer to a modern air-conditioned bus for the 113 km jurney by road to Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport, which takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. The bus will not stop on route. The final drop off point is in front of the main terminal building at Nakhon Si Thammarat, leaving only a short walk to the check-in desks.
