I don't think there are any direct boats to Thai islands from Cambodia. And even if you hired a boat for yourself, you'd have to go through customs somewhere, so I don't think that would work. You can take a boat from Sihanoukville to the border (Ko Kong) though.

There are no scheduled boats from Cambodia crossing to any of the tourist islands in Thailand. You can get a boat from Sihanoukville (and it stops at one place along the Cambo coats, can't remember the name) to Koh Kong then cross the boarder into Thailand. As above, you need a customs point, the only customs point is at Hat Lek in Thailand along the eastern coastline.

As goo_stewart says, no direct boats. The halfway island between Ko Kong and Sanookyville is Ko S'Dach

Somtam, have you ever (or anyone else) stayed on the island? Is it worth a nights visit? Looks interesting!

Sorry, just saw your post goo_stewart, yes I've stayed on Ko S'dach (it's my notes that added it to Travelfish). It's a good spot -- very very unadulterated, which is surprising considering two boats, packed with foreigners stop there every day!

Hi,
I was looking into traveling across the Gulf of Thailand by boat too. Are there any options to do this at all? I was wanting to go from Thailand to Cambodia.
If not (due to visas etc) are there any options to travel through the gulf from Southern Thailand, Ko Samui, into the bay,say Ko Samet or further South.

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks!

Hi ph,

The only way you can do this is via private yacht -- either on your own yacht, chartering one, or crewing on one. There are no regular passenger ferries plying any of the routes you mention.

I remember hearing about a cruise liner that was running from Pattaya down towards Ko Samui, but by all accounts it was truly awful and I get the feeling that's not the type of transport you're looking for anyways.
