About Travel to Donsak


Of the three ferry companies which travel from Koh Phangan to Donsak the fastest ferry is also the cheapest, the Raja car ferry which completes the journey in 2 hours 30 minutes. The other two ferry companies operating on this route, Seatran Discovery and Songserm, use faster ferries but take the same time or slightly longer to complete the crossing to the mainland because they stop on route at Koh Samui to pick up and drop off customers. The slower Raja cary ferry is the only ferry which travels direct from Koh Phangan to Donsak. The arrival points in the district of Donsak for all three ferry companies are all fairly close to each other as well.
