The night ferries are a good option to reach Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao if you arrive in Surat Thani late at night and don’t want to stay in town. Ferries carrying only passengers, no bikes or cars, leave from Bandon Pier at Bandon Rd., in the city centre very close to two of Surat Thani's bus stations. The crossing lasts roughly 6 hours up to Nathon Pier in Samui, as well as up to Thong Sala Pier in Koh Pha Ngan, 9 hours instead to reach Mae Haad Pier in Koh Tao. You can buy the ferry ticket at pier on the same day you wish to travel. On board there are small bunks for sleeping, but not enough for all passengers therefore better to board as soon is possible.
