EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
VISA & ENTRY
Visa and other entry and exit conditions (such as currency, customs and quarantine regulations) change regularly in Thailand. We highly recommend consulting your nearest Embassy or Consulate of Thailand for the most up-to-date information available.
We suggest going through these websites (but keep in mind there is no way we can guarantee any of this information):
GETTING TO THAILAND
The closest airport to Koh Phangan is Koh Samui. There are flights from Bangkok, Phuket and Singapore daily. As a general rule, Air Asia is an acceptable and affordable option flying between Bangkok and Ko Samui but the flight is relatively short so it wouldn't hurt to take a less expensive plane to save on some spending money. Also: flights from Bangkok to Surat Thani are cheap, and then its just a ferry ride over to Koh Phangan.
If you arrive in Bangkok and need to organise a ticket down to Koh Phangan, all you need do is take a stroll along the street to find a deal that suits you from any of the seemingly infinite hostels/travel agents/corner stalls. The trip is always the same and comprises of either an overnight bus or train followed by a ferry ride across the Gulf of Thailand to get you to Koh Phangan.
