Travel from Ratchaprapha Dam

Most visitors to Khao Sok National Park, particularly those staying at one of the floating bungalow resorts on Cheow Lan Lake, will depart from the National Park via the Ratchaprapha Dam Pier. Ratchaprapha Dam Pier is a long distance from the nearest town with a bus station and it is also a long way from any major roads where you might flag down a bus or a minivan. For this reason to travel onward from Ratchaprapha Dam your only options are to take a taxi or book a minivan service. The reliable Phantip Travel Company is the operator of minivan services from Ratchaprapha Dam to Surat Thani. These services depart from very near to the actual pier (120 metres walking distance) from a small car park on the approach road to the pier itself. Minivans are perhaps not the most comfortable form of transport in Thailand, but the journey only takes 1 hour 30 minutes and costs a lot less than taking on taxi.
