Bangrak Pier is also known as "Big Buddha Pier" due to its close proximity to (you guessed it) a fairly big 12m high Buddha that rests on the hill of a nearby island. The pier has recently been given a really nice upgrade that makes it a pleasure to arrive from and depart to, with a couple of nice restaurant/bakery shops to wait in. All is fairly well organized, and the pier staff are quite helpful. The good news for FerrySamui.com
travelers is that the pier staff know us well and are familiar with our customer service processes.
Bangrak Pier, being toward the northeast of the island is also the closest ferry pier to the elegant Samui Airport, which makes some transfers really simple. Taxi fares to and from the airport are only going to be 200-300 THB. It's also the closest pier to the Samui's most reknown beaches, Chaweng and Lamai. The pier is a great departure point to the nearby Koh Phangan, famous for its "Full Moon Party" and Koh Tao, the amazing diver's paradise! Local facilities are good, and accommodation is going to be a little cheaper around here but still good.
