    It’s best to plan ahead and book your ferry ticket to Koh Phangan in advance.

    Between the other islands (Samui, Koh Tao) and the mainland ports (Chumphon, Suratthani) there are several ferry companies operating but only a few trips each day. The most popular services are the Lomprayah ferry and Seatran ferry.

    The ferries do often get fully booked – especially during peak seasons and around the dates of the Full Moon Parties. So certainly it’s a good idea to book your ferry ticket to Koh Phangan at least a few days in advance.

    You can book your ferry ticket through the following websites: or

    About the budget, if you have around 3,500 – 5,000 baht per night, you can book a really nice hotel. For the air ticket cost, you should have around 7,000 – 8,000 baht for economy class for round trip from Bangkok to Phuket (less cheaper from Bangkok to Chiang Mai) by Thai airlines… will be cheaper for low budget airline. The cost of the meals, you should have around 500-600 baht for two persons in a nice local restaurant, and around 1,000 – 2,000 baht in a very luxury hotels. If you want to try street food, it would cost around 50-100 baht each to fill up your stomach :)

    Enjoy Thailand!! Hope it helps you in some way!!
