Found on the southern isthmus of Thailand, in the mountainous Surat Thani region surrounded by the glittering Gulf of Thailand, is the district of Don Sak. It’s an area of breath-taking tropical beauty. Much of the region is covered in lush woodland formed of coconut palms and broad-leafed ferns, between which twist rural roads leading to the many quaint settlements upon the undulating hills of the mainland.
The north of Don Sak is marked by a rugged coastline overlooking the gulf. From here ferries hop across to the tree-topped islands that, on a clear day, can be seen rising on steep-cliffs towards the horizon. The main passenger terminal is near the town of Mu Ban Don Sak Thani in the north-east of the region, just off the main 4142 dual-carriageway that cuts through the centre of Don Sak. This somewhat small facility is located at the end of a long pier (known locally as Leam Tuad Pier), and can be reached via a covered walkway lining one edge of the stilted promenade.
Amenities at the clean and modern terminal building include a check-in point, indoor and outdoor waiting areas, a car-park and a designated spot from which coaches and buses take passengers to destinations across Don Sak.
There are three outgoing routes available at the port, all of which head towards the nearby islands in the Gulf of Thailand. These journeys are hosted by Songserm ferries who regularly sail north to the islands of Koh Tao, Koh Phangan and Koh Samui throughout the week.
