Getting out of Thailand from Khao Lak

Getting out of Thailand from Khao Lak

Hi all,

My girlfriend and I are visiting Thailand for 11D/10N in January.

The rough plan is

- Land in Surat Thani, Ferry to Ko Tao

- 4D/3N Ko Tao (Plan to do diving certificate)

- Ferry to Koh Samui, 3D/3N in Samui

- Ferry back to Surat Thani, Surat Thani to Khao Lak

- 4D/3N (2 full days) in Khao Lak


- Fly out to Singapore

I am just wondering if it would be easier to leave Thailand from Phuket or Surat Thani when leaving from Khao Lak.

If anyone has an opinion on transport plans from Samui to Khao Lak that would also be welcome.

Oh my goodness, profuse apologies, I confused myself between Khao Sok and Khao Lak. Moving my question there, although this might still be useful for people who honestly have this question.

Consider Phuket and Krabi as departure airports.

You've confused me! Is your question about departing from Khao Sok or Khao Lak? For internatiuonal departures to Singapore, you have more direct options from Phuket Airport which is just over an hour from Khao Lak and about 2 hours from Khao Sok. To get to Khao Lak or Khao Sok from Samui, either destination you are already considering i.e. ferry to Surat Thani then mini-bus or public bus or taxi to Khao Sok or through Khao Sok to Khao Lak. Boss of Cheaper than Hoyel Taxis in Khao Lak provided decent priced transfer from Surat Thani to Khao Lak and Khao Lak to Phuket Airport. Contact cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com
