*If the explanation  is quite confusing, 
the maps and the pictures posted here 
would be helpful for making it clearer.

 *Do the followings for getting to Dipabhavan Meditation Center 
when starting from Seatran Ferry Pier.

- Look for  the red minibus (the modified pickup truck being used as a bus)
waiting for the passengers at the parking 
in front of the pier near the main street.

- Get on the red minibus that going straight to the south. Baan Huathanon located on the southeast of Samui Island is your destination.  Ask the driver for making sure that you won’t go  to the north. If so, it takes very long time and long distance to reach the Ban Huathanon and you also have to pay the fare cost more expensive. The minibus rans around Koh Samui so you won't miss the destination, but going straight to the south takes shorter time.

- You can hire the taxi but the fare cost is more expensive than you have to pay for the red minibus.
- If you can’t find the red minibus, then cross the road and wait for the red minibus on the opposite side of the pier.
- The red minibus stops for the passengers during a transit. Anyway, it shouldn’t take longer than 1 hour to reach Baan Huathanon.

 *if the bus you come with crosses to Koh Samui by Rajaferry, 
you should go along with the bus until you arrive at the Bus terminal station.
