Transportation

Donsak Information

Transportation

For travelers who want to reach the Thailand Gulf, Donsak is the pier that will take you there. Being the main harbor in Surat Thani province, the closest airport is located in this city, which provides buses and taxi services that drop you off in the port. Airport shuttles have a low cost and sometimes the price is already included on your ferry ticket with a journey of around 1.5 hours. Buses from Nakhon Si Thammarat and Krabi, are also available, however, Surat Thani Town is the fastest and easiest to get to by train, bus, or airplane from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Chiang Mai.

Donsak is the home of many ferry services which disembark in three piers. Raja ferry port pier is the most liked by tourists and it is where our ferry services operate. 

Donsak Information

Donsak lies in the south of Surat Thani Town and it's the gateway to the popular islands located in the Thailand Gulf. The district is composed by three piers; Leam Tuad Pier, Seatran Ferry Pier, and Raja Ferry Port which is the favorite among tourists due to its car-ferry service.  There isn’t so much to see and explore in Donsak, other than to relax watching the sea and be caressed by the cool breeze meanwhile you are waiting for your ferry, however, its neighboring cities definitely deserve a visit.
