Today, it’s time to say goodbye to your little tropical paradise as you buy your own ticket and board the ferry back to the pier on the mainland. From here you can catch the bus or take a taxi back to Trang. Many travellers plan this bite sized tour at the end of their Thailand trip, in which case you can take a domestic flight, or the overnight train back to Bangkok, and depending on your flight time, catch your connecting flight back home.
The best time of year to visit Ko Hai is between November and May. If you’re travelling outside this period you might be better off staying on the east coast of Thailand.
