How long roughly does it take to clear custosms?

Me and my partner are flying internally from DMK to URT on the 27th of August.

Our flight lands in at 1010am and we've booked a bus and ferry package to Koh Phangan. The bus is scheduled to leave the airport at 1120am...wondering if I've given myself enough time to get off the plane, clear customs and get luggage?

Thanks

Of course Bangkok to Surat Thani is a domestic flight and there's no Immigration or Customs to clear. An hour and 10 minutes should be more than sufficient in a small airport as long as your incoming flight isn't seriously delayed and you don't have a problem with Baggage Claim.

LOL, easily done!!

We have done similar with Air Asia to Samui, it all runs pretty seamlessly. You get off the plane at Surat Thani, 15mins later depending when your bag comes off the plane, you walk to the ferry counter, show your ticket, get a sticker for the bus, get on the bus, an hour to the ferry port, and wait a short while for the ferry!

You will need your passport as ID but otherwise no customs!
