How to get there 
You may get from Bangkok to Phangan island by Lomprayah
high-speed catamaran. But the best is to fly to Samui island, and next get by ferry from Maenam beach to Phangan island.
There are two options to fly from Bangkok to Samui:
1. Direct flight to Samui Airport (USM)
. This way is most convenient, but also the most expensive.
2. Fly to Surat Thani airport (URT)
low-coster. Then get by taxi (1200 bahts) to Donsak Pier
. Then get to Samui by any ferry (Raja ferry
is the best, but other services are also good). It is the best value for money
way of getting to Koh Samui, but takes a little longer time, as the road from Suratthani airport to Samui takes a few hours. Find flights to Pirate Beach
