The Quickest Way from Kuala Lumpur to Koh Phangan

Travel Forums Asia The Quickest Way from Kuala Lumpur to Koh Phangan

I'm flying into Kuala Lumpur Monday 14th Nov at 16.20 and would like to know anyone's suggestions on the best way to get to Koh Phangan in time for the Full Moon Party on the 16th. Are there any airlines that fly from KL to Samui? So far the best way I've found will be to get an AirAsia flight to Phuket and then overland to Suratthani from where you can get a boat to Phangan.

Thanks for your help ;)

hi, expres buses leave kl for hatyai (about USD10) at 11pm daily, arriving about 8am hatyai, from here take air con bus to suratani, and then either u take ferry boat to phangan, or bus up to samui, and then boat to phangan...maybe u will arrive in time for the moonparty countdown!

u can forget taking air asia for phuket, cos on vo 14, there are no afternoon flights, nov 15 yes, morning flight..but then from phuket u have to bus to suratani...and the equation will work out the same if u take the bus from KL to Hatyai...u save more $$$$.

cheers

take care around the area of southern thailand. especially around the malaysian - thai border.
there has been quite a bit of trouble there lately.
(a couple of bombs went of underneath a train there last week.)
