About Travel to Koh Ngai


The journey from Phuket Airport to Koh Ngai has at least two stages. The first stage is to travel from Phuket Airport, which is in the north of the island, to the ferry pier, which is in the south of the island. By road the distance between the airport and the ferry pier is 36 km.

From the ferry pier the next stage of the journey is by sea to Koh Ngai. The only way to reach Koh Ngai is by speedboat, although visitors with enough time could take a ferry to Koh Phi Phi, and then another ferry to Koh Lanta, before boarding a speedboat for the final part of the journey to Koh Ngai.

There are several different public transport options for travel from Phuket Airport to Koh Ngai. The cheapest option is to take the Airport Bus from Phuket Airport to Phuket Town, and then to take a local shared taxi for the final 3 km of the journey to Rassada Pier. Another option is to take a private taxi from Phuket Airport to Phuket Town which will cost around 900 THB, although the prices are not fixed and Phuket taxis almost never use meters so the journey might cost more than that.

The other way to travel from Phuket Airport to Koh Ngai is to take a joint service which starts with a minivan transfer from Phuket Airport to Rassada Pier where a speedboat will be waiting to take passengers on the second and final stage of the journey. One of the advantages of buying a ticket on a joint service is that your place on the speedboat is guaranteed. Shared speedboats have a limited number of seats and once they are all reserved no further passengers can join the service.

The Bundhaya Speed Boat service from Phuket Airport to Koh Ngai starts with a representative of the company meeting passengers at an agreed location in the arrival hall of either the domestic or international terminals at 06:20. Once all the passengers have been located boarding of a minivan for the 1 hour journey to Rassada Pier will commence. The speedboat doesn’t depart until 08:30 so there is plenty of time to make the connection.

The second stage of the Bundhaya Speed Boat service from Phuket Airport to Koh Ngai takes 2 hours 30 minutes. The speedboat will stop at Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta before continuing onto Koh Ngai. These stops increase the journey time, however, they also provide passengers with an opportunity for short breaks during the journey.
