    Taxi to ban Phe from bangkok may cost you around 2000 Bhat plus 100 for the Expressway toll, but I think last speed boat from ban Phe is at 6.00 PM

    It will be better if you stay in Bangkok over night and take the early morning Bus from Ekamai 3.5 hour/170 Bhat to Ban Phe and then take the ferry 50 Bhat to 100 Bhat one way depending on the size of the boat and take 30 to 45 minutes, service usually start from 8.00 am till 5 or 6 pm every hour and they go when they are full (7 to 20 PAX) or take the Speed Boat which may cost 600 to 1000 Bhat

    Some resorts provide free ferry to guest, check with the place you plan to stay.

    Hi dear....they have a taxi to bring you to Ban Phee....cost about 1,500 Bathsand taking 2.5 Hour.( this is up to use or not used metor in Taxi)I am not sure you will have a speedboat or not., I think you will stay at BKK on the night and morning you will go to bus station (EAST BUS Station )to go to Ban Phee and cost very low.. bus cost not over 7USD and speedboat is not over 5 USD
    well....good luck

    Get a head start on your trip to Samet, go to Pattaya for the night. You will be more than half way to Ban Phee. You are moving 30 to 45 minutes backwards by staying in Bangkok. For 1100 Baht, Pattaya taxi will take you to your hotel in Pattaya in 1:15 hours and pay the tolls. http://www.pattaya-taxi.com/

    A speedboat after 10-11 PM .Are you sure you want to do that?
    I aways hear about speed boat accidents in Thailand

    I would just spend the night in Bangkok and head to Samet in the morning.
