"Getting to Satun by ferry from Langkawi" Satun Transportation Tip by phil_uk_net
Satun Transportation: 8 reviews and 4 photos
At the time of writing (January 2003) there were 4 ferries a day leaving at approximately 9:30, 10:30, 12:30, and 14:00 but check the times locally. Fare is 18 Ringgits and journey time about 1 hour.
For some reason you cannot buy a ticket in advance so it is necessary to do this on the day of departure and consequently there can be a huge queue. Frankly, it is an organisational nightmare but hey, this is Asia. In order to get through Thai immigration quickly try to get hold of an immigration card before you arive and fill it out on the boat. If you have to obtain and complete one on arrival it will only put you further back in the queue getting through immigration.
Money changers are present at the Satun ferry port to change Ringgits and give an okay rate.
