Seatran Discovery

The arrival point in Koh Samui for this service is the Seatran pier in Bangrak. Bangrak is near the northern most point of Koh Samui and very close to the airport. On the road in front of the pier you can normally flag down a songthaew shared shaed taxi, although they are less frequent than they are on the main ring around the Island which is 3.3 km from Bangrak Seatran pier. What we recommend is speaking to the staff at the Seatran Discovery office to organise a pre-booked transfer to your final destination in Koh Samui at the point when you check in for your journey. The charge is 150 THB per person to anywhere on the island.
