How to get there

Flights

Take a flight to Bangkok and then fly Bangkok Airways to Koh Samui.

(nb. This is the preferred route. There is no point using others routes unless you have plenty of time).

or

a cheaper domestic flight route is Bangkok to Suratthani (approx.1300bhat), Suratthani airport by bus to Donsak port (1 hour), and use the ferry (90 min. crossing) to Nathon port (45 mins from Chweng) in Koh Samui but this takes approx. 4 hours more time. And ferries don't run at night.

Other airports not too far : Krabi.

There are also direct flights from Pattaya and Phuket (both mainland) or international: Singapore and Kuala Lumpa.

And Lomprayah (a local transport company) do a useful sea cat / bus journey to Bangkok via Koh Tao.

Bus

There are many overnight buses from Bangkok etc. (from 700b)

Train

Also there is an overnight sleeper train to Suratthani from Bangkok.

Scooters

Scooter or car hire is recommended being up a hill. 125cc Scooter is the preferred mode of transport in Thailand, they rent for approx 200-300 bhat per day (approx. £5) or less for long-term. This we can organise for you.
