Koh Samui does have its own cheaper public transport system in the form of shared taxis, however, shared taxis ply the main ring road and do not pick up from Lipa Noi Raja Ferry Pier. From Lipa Noi Raja Ferry Pier its a 3.3 km walk to the island’s main ring road which is a bit far to comfortably walk. Taxi services are also available from Lipa Noi Raja Ferry Pier, however, on the whole taxi services on Koh Samui are relatively expensive and need to be negotiated in advance.
A better option for onward travel in Koh Samui from Lipa Noi Raja Pier is to use the RP Van service. This service can be booked on the ferry during the crossing to Koh Samui. The RP Van service works on a fixed fare basis of 150 THB per person to any destination in Koh Samui. The minivans are shared, travelling to different parts of the island so they are not a s quick as taking a taxi as other passengers will be dropped off on route, however, for one or two people travelling together they are a lot cheaper than paying for a private taxi.
