Thong Nai Pan is not so big as to need a vehicle to get round. It takes 30 minutes to walk from Thong Nai Pan Noi to Thong Nai Pan Yai or you can get a taxi for about 100 THB. Every morning at 10am there are taxis going to the main port town of Thongsala. They cost about 300 THB.

Thong Nai Pan is not the type of beach area where people cruise up and down on motobikes. In contrast to many other tourist destinations in Thailand, there is a low level of traffic.

We recommend hiring a vehicle for your own convenience as Sunrise Villa is at the top of a hill. A vehicle will also allow you to visit other places of interest in Koh Phangan.
