Island hopping travel route East Coast Thailand

Rondreis Eilandhoppen oostkust Thailand 1

From Donsak (on the mainland, located 40 km from Surat Thani) take the ferry to Koh Samui, 3 nights.

The crossing takes approximately 1.5 hours and is beautiful. Explore Koh Samui’s most beautiful beaches on the east coast and north coast. Also explore Koh Samui’s waterfalls, lively nightlife and the deserted spots where you have a whole beach to yourself.

From Koh Samui take the ferry to Koh Phangan, 3 nights.

Here you will find the famous Full Moon Parties. But the island is large enough for sun seekers who prefer not to participate in the festivities.

Then take the ferry to Koh Tao for diving and snorkelling, 3 nights.

Koh Tao is the place to explore the Thai underwater world. Also the adjacent beautiful Nang Yuan Island is a must.

Travel back to Koh Samui by direct ferry from Koh Tao. 1 extra night on Koh Samui is often necessary because of ferry and flight times which almost never match. Do you travel home after this? A morning flight from Koh Samui usually fits in well with the afternoon or evening flights from Bangkok back home.
