Koh Samui to Koh Lanta by Bus
The cheapest way to get to Koh Lanta from Koh Samui is by bus. There is a daily bus service from Koh for Koh Lanta, but only one bus leaves per day, at 8 AM in the morning. First, you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Nathon Bus Station. Then you will board the bus and head to Surat Thani City, which also includes a ninety-minute ferry ride to the mainland in Donsak. Both the buses and ferries are comfortable and air-conditioned, and the ferry has ample seating, sundeck, toilet facilities, shop for snacks, and even a massage service at times.
From Donsak, there will be an eighty-minute journey to Surat Thani, and then you will switch your bus and head to Koh Lanta. The time for changing the bus is thirty minutes, which gives you enough time to freshen up, use the toilet, and buy any food and drinks you need. The bus will then head to Ao Nang, from where you have to take a ferry to get to the island.
