Getting there and away


Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai
Getting to or from Thong Sala is best done by songtheaw taxi and typically costs 100-150B. The road is mostly paved the whole way, so it is a fairly easy trip in spite of the distance. Find a taxi full of people going here when the boat arrives or you risk paying significantly more. Longtail boats also run here from Chaloklum for around 150B -- it costs 100B to get to Chaloklum from Thong Sala. From Thong Nai Pan Noi, pre-scheduled taxis depart Baan Tapannoi at 10:00 daily and from Thong Tapan and Baan Panburi at 10:00, 14:00 and 16:00 for 100B/person. Star Hut offers taxis at the same time as well as some departing Thong Sala at 12:30 and 18:00 and a boat to Haad Rin departing at 09:00, returning at 12:50 for 150B/person each way. From Thong Nai Pan Yai pre-scheduled taxis for Thong Sala leave from Pingjun Bungalow at 10:00 and 15:00 and return at 12:30 and 18:00 for 100B/person each way.
