Nowadays, it is much faster and easier to get to Koh Tao, than earlier. island is located around 85 kilometers away from Chumphon port, 45 km from Koh Phangan, 65 km from Koh Samui, and 120 km from Suratthani. thus most travelers choose to start from Chumphon, where they could board large speedboat to the island within 2 hours. Some sea transportation companies even make it easier to go there by including the bus trip from Bangkok to Chumphon into the program. by this way it is much faster and easier to get to Koh Tao.
