How To Get To Koh Yao Yai from Phuket + First Views of The Island - Thailand


How To Get From Phuket To Koh Yao Yai

There’s no airport in Koh Yao Yai, after getting nearby the island the only way to access it is by boat.
The closest point is Phuket (Click here to see how to get to Phuket), we’ll be explaining how to transfer from Phuket to Koh Yao Yai step-by-step.
As you saw on the video there are 2 piers which can be used for this route. One is called Bang Rong Pier located on the northeast of the island and the other one is called Chianwanich located at the southeast of the island.
Phuket is the largest island in Thailand so save about 1 hour to go from your hotel to either of these piers, the best is asking your hotel how long it will take because if you are staying out of the main beaches time may differ. There’s no public transportation to access the piers, scheduling a taxi will be needed.
Bang Rong Pier pier counts with speed boat and private longtail boats only. Chianwanich Pier has speed boats and car ferry for those who can’t/don’t want to ride a speed boat or wishes to bring a car/motorbike together. Speed boat rides take about 40 min, the car ferry and longtail boat take 1 hour.
Here the boat timetable:

Boats from Phuket To Koh Yao Yai

 Speed BoatCar FerryLongtail Boat
Chianwanich Pier
(arrive at Loh Jark Pier)
- 10:00, 17:00 (there are more boats in between this times without accurate schedule)
- 200 baht per person
- 08:30, 10:00, 14:00
(no service on Fridays)
- 140 baht per person, 400 baht with car
Bang Rong Pier
(arrive at Klong Hia Pier)
- 07:40, 08:40, 09:15, 09:40, 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 13:15, 14:30, 15:00, 16:00, 17:00, 17:30
- 300 baht per person
X- private, schedule up to you during day time
- 2000 baht per boat

Another thing to be considered is if your hotel in Koh Yao Yai offers the transfer, contact them beforehand and remember to specify the departure pier.
Is also important to check the location of your hotel because the final stops of the boats depend from where they departed, for example, from Bang Rong Pier pier they stop in Klong Hia Pier(unless you hire a private long tail that will leave you at your hotel) and Chianwanich pier will leave you at Loh Jark Pier in Koh Yao Yai.
As these boats can’t be booked with travel agents or hotels in town, information is scarce and often inaccurate. The only way to buy the tickets is in person at the piers which are located quite far away from the main hotel areas. Yet, there’s always available space in the boats and/or extra boats departing, don’t worry about staying without tickets (unless you’re bringing a car, then calling the pier in advance is advisable, help from a Thai speaker will be needed, phone: (087) 896 0756 or (087) 2720132.


We were welcomed by a new shade of blue to our eyes on the island sky, the masterpiece was completed with a touch of swinging coconut trees.
Sand down, sun up, what a wonderful world!💙

Koh Samui – Thailand

I went to Samui for work and tried to capture as much as I could of the island to show you!😉
I had some free time as well and use it to visit one of the most famous beaches in town.

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best during my stay, I heard that the beaches I visited are much calmer waters on a regular day.
Still the sea is always pleasant to be nearby and I had time to visit a night market (right up my alley!😜) too.

Fisherman Village Night Market

When you hear the name “Fisherman Village” you may imagine a scenario, but hold on!
It’s actually a beachfront long street with crafts, street food, bars, restaurants; not an actual village.
The place is great for souvenirs, grabbing some snacks or even stopping by a seafront restaurant for supper.

Address: Bohput Beach Road, Koh Samui


How To Get There

By Flight

There’s only 2 flight companies offering services to Koh Samui, Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways.
The airport is privately owned by Bangkok Airways, one of the most beautiful airports I’ve been to.
For this reason ticket fares are quite high compared to usual flight cost in Thailand.
However it’s the only way to travel directly to the Island, great option if you’re short on time or just don’t want spend any traveling around.

Samui International Airport – ท่าอากาศยานนานาชาติสมุย

Koh Samui - Thailand

By Flight + Ferry Boat

If you’re running out of time but the flight tickets to Koh Samui are to high for your budget, there’s a option in between: embarking a flight to Surat Thani + Ferry Boat.
Prices will be a quarter or less than flying directly to Samui, specially if bought in advance.
The trip time will extend a lot though, from Surat Thani Airport there’s an extra hour ride to the pier.
For ferry details check the section bellow.


By Bus/Train + Ferry Boat

The other option would be taking a bus or train to Surat Thani and then a ferry-boat to Samui.
Traveling by land in Thailand is safe and you get to see more of the country on the way.

If coming from Bangkok, our recommendation is the overnight train.That way you can sleep well to later enjoy your day at the beach.
Train tickets can be bought at Hua Lamphong train station as a combo with ferry included preventing any overcharges and making it easy on you as everything is already arranged.

Hua Lamphong – หัวลำโพง
(Officially “Bangkok Railway Station” – สถานีรถไฟกรุงเทพ)
Address: Hua Lamphong, Rama 4 Road, Mahaphruttharam, Bangrak, Bangkok
Address in Thai: ที่อยู่: หัวลำโพง ถ.พระราม 4 แขวง มหาพฤฒาราม เขต บางรัก กทม
MRT: Hua Lamphong station – Blue line, exit 2
BTS(skytrain): *Interchange with MRT needed- Asoke station – Sukhumvit line, interchange with MRT blue line
Website(Thailand Railway): *In this website you can check all timetables, fares and seating options with pictures of all trains in Thailand.

Being a busy destination, ferry timetable is extensive, easy to fit with diverse schedules.
Ferry ride takes about 1.5 hours costing around 120-600 baht depending on company and package, running between 5:00am to 7:00pm.
If you purchased the train+ferry combo in Hua Lamphong, the boat is already covered.

Koh Samui - Thailand


I spent time in 2 beaches during my stay: Choeng Mon Beach and Outrigger Resort private beach.
They were great for relaxing, unfortunately while I stayed at the island the weather was a bit rough and the sea wasn’t proper for swimming nor snorkeling so I can’t tell how it usually looks.
In Choeng Mon I liked the way the ocean collide at the south corner, I also did a Thai massage facing the sea that is always a must in the Smile Land.

At Outrigger’s beach there was a great comfy deck to chill by the sea, which I love to do with a fresh Thai coconut in hands.


Koh Samui was a quick but fun stop, I was in a work trip but I sure did relax too! What about you, feeling the beach vibe?Let us know at the comments bellow!❤️
