KHAO SOK TRANSFER  & HOW TO GET THERE
PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION

We can arrange private transport via car or van from anywhere in Southern Thailand including: Khao Lak, Krabi, Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, Koh Lanta, Koh Phi Phi, and the Similan Islands. If you are coming directly from one of the islands we can arrange private pick up from any pier.

A car normally carries two adults and luggage, or three adults if they have small bags. For three or more people, we recommend a van.

Driving yourself to Khao Sok National Park
Visitors with their own vehicle can follow our GPS coordinates.

GPS: 8.9105, 98.5310 (+8° 54′ 37.8″, +98° 31′ 51.6″)

From the Airport- 2 hours
When you get out of the Airport, turn right on the 41 Road, and drive south for 11 km. Turn right on the 401, and drive west for 109 km (through the towns of Takun and Panom) until you arrive at the entrance to Khao Sok Park on your right hand side. T

buildings5From Surathani Town- 2 hours

Head west to the town of Phunpin, take the 401, drive west for 109 km (through the towns of Takun and Panom) until you arrive at the entrance to Khao Sok Park on your right hand side.

 

Public Transfer

From/to Phuket or Khao Lak:
There is a bus service (approximately one bus per hour; the last one starts from Phuket around 14:00). Transit time is 4 hours from Phuket and 2 hours from Khao Lak (including a 20 min stop in Takua Pa that you may use to visit the local market). Price: about 160 baht from Phuket.

From/to Surat Thani:
Air-conditioned public bus from Surat Thani runs every hour starting at 07:00, passing the Surat Thani Train Station (at Phun Phin) 15 minutes later (so first bus from here is at 07:15). Tickets can be purchased at the Surat Thani Bus Station located at Talat Mai 31 or at a stall on the train station's bus stop. Transit time is around 2 hours. Price is 120 baht. There should also be a minibus service departing every hour from 07:30 to 17:30 but the last one can be cancelled. The public bus is comfortable and more reliable.

From/to Krabi:
There is only one minibus per day. From Krabi at about 11:00 and from Khao Sok at 08:30. Transit time is 2-3 hours. Price: 300 baht. The minibus from Khao Sok does not go to Krabi town or Krabi's Talat Kao Bus Station, it drops passengers off at a makeshift "Minibus Station" a few kilometres out of Krabi town from where the only way to get somewhere useful is via one of the taxis waiting there. There is no direct bus from Khao Sok to Krabi (you would have to change at Surat Thani) and so the minibus still is the easiest option.

From/to Ko Samui:
Minibus + ferry to Ko Samui costing 500 baht leaves Khao Sok at 09:00 and the ferry gets to Ko Samui at 15:30. During the high season there is also an afternoon minibus + night boat costing 600 baht. The minibus leaves Khao Sok at 15:00 and the night boat arrives at Ko Samui at 06:00 the next day.

From/to Ko Pha-Ngan:
Minibus + ferry to Ko Pha-Ngan costing 650 baht leaves Khao Sok at 09:00 and gets to Ko Pha-Ngan at 16:30. During the high season there is also an afternoon minibus + night boat costing 700 baht. The minibus leaves Khao Sok at 15:00 and the night boat arrives at Ko Pha-Ngan at 06:00 the next day.

From/to Bangkok:
By plane: Surat Thani airport is the nearest one but you can also choose Phuket airport. By train: Surat Thani train station is the nearest one. Be careful: the southern line is very busy, advance booking is highly recommended. By night bus: There is only one night bus per day stopping at Khao Sok. In Bangkok, it seems that the only way to book and buy it is to go directly to the southern bus station in Bangkok (booking any other night bus sold by agencies is not recommended). In Khao Sok, it is possible to book and buy it in the local agency or at your hotel (ask for the real VIP bus, direct from Khao Sok to Bangkok).
