bankok to Koh Tao in the morning? best way?

What is the best way to travel from Bankok to Koh Tao in the morning?

We come to Bankok in the evening and then we will be looking to go in the morning. So any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi

The best ways are

1. Fly form Bangkok to Koh Samui with Bangkok airways with ferry from Samui to Tao.

2. Fly from Bangkok to chumporn with Nok airs + ferry to Tao.

3. Fly with air Asia to Surat Thani with ferry to Tao.

Flying to Koh Samui you will have more flights to choose as early as 7.30am. But This route will be more expensive as your flying with full service airlines.

Depending on what time you arrive at Bangkok, you could consider the overnight train to Chumphon with a bus/ferry transfer - just a thought.

You've also got the option of the early morning coach that leaves around 6am and gets you on to Koh Tao that afternoon. The best service I've found is the Lomprayah service, as they have big coaches and the most comfortable ferry over. It's not too expensive as an option and if you're not one to get up early then you shouldn't find it too much of an issue to sleep on the coach.

The 0600 lomprayah departing from Soi Rambuttri next to Khao Sarn is the best bus & ferry option.

If you prefer to fly then Bkk Airways to Samui then ferry to Tao is a good way but more expensive compared with Air Asia through Surat Thanni then ferry to Tao
