Traveling from Nakhonsithammarat Town to Koh Samui

Please note that now the van company that takes passengers from Nakhonsithammarat to Donsak Pier Suratthani (to get the ferry to Koh Samui) does not start at Talad Yen fish market anymore. They changed the place to be "Nakhonsithammarat Provincial Transport Station" or local people call it "Hua - Id Bus Station" in the town of Nakhonsithammarat. It takes about 20 minutes from Nakhonsithammarat Airport to Hua - Id Bus Station.You can see the google map at the link below.





The information below is the old information. We will change the update picture of Nakhonsithammarat Provincial Transpor Terminal when we have time to go to Nakhonsithammarat.

Please note that the information below this line was the old information about the place to get in the public minibus from Nakhonsithammarat Town to Donsak Pier (To get the ferry to Koh Samui.)
