Travel Options

Getting to Phatcharee Resort on Koh Phangan Island requires a bit of extra effort, as there are no domestic flights directly to the island. However, with some planning and flexibility, reaching this paradise destination is entirely feasible.

Upon arriving in Bangkok, travellers have several options to reach Koh Phangan. One suggestion is to spend a night in Bangkok to rest and recuperate after the long international flight before continuing the journey to the island the following day. This allows travelers to get their bearings and adjust to the time difference before embarking on the next leg of their journey.

Alternatively, if you land in Bangkok early in the morning, you can opt to catch a flight to the island later in the day, allowing you to reach Koh Phangan sooner. It’s essential to be mindful of the fact that there are two airports in Bangkok, and sometimes domestic flights depart from a different airport than the one where you land. Therefore, it’s crucial to double-check your flight details and make any necessary arrangements accordingly.

To ensure a smooth journey, it’s advisable to book transportation well in advance, especially during peak travel seasons such as the full moon and Christmas/New Year celebrations. This helps secure the best rates and prevents any last-minute disappointments. Phatcharee Resort provides an up-to-date guide with online links to local companies that service the routes to Koh Phangan, ensuring travellers have all the information they need to plan their trip seamlessly.

Travelers should note that flight prices tend to be more favorable during the low season months, typically around the end of March and the start of April. Planning your trip to Phatcharee Resort during this time may offer the opportunity to secure more affordable airfares and accommodations, allowing you to make the most of your tropical getaway in Thailand
