Hi Trenta,

The last boat leaves Surat for Ko Pha Ngan at around 15:00 from memory, so if you leave Phuket early you should be able to manage that boat in a day.

I wouldn't do Samui or Ko Tao as day trips -- they're big islands and attractions in their own right -- if you have the time spend time on each

Hi there.

I really really want to go to the Full Moon Party at Ko Pang yang but the only flight left was a flight to Phuket which lands around midday in Phuket on the 31st December. Is there anyway that I can get to Ko Pang Yang on such a tight scedule from Phuket??

Please help.

If you could let me know asap that would be great
Best regards

Hi Sophie

I am also on a tight schedule and trying to get from Phuket to Koh Phangan for the FMP.

My flight lands at 23:35 on Dec 30th and my plan is to try to take the first ferry to Surat Thani and a fast boat from there to Koh Phangan. All my research says the transport from Phuket to Koh Phangan takes at least 8 hours/all day.

Good luck, let me know if you find anything better. All flights I could find were already sold out
