      How to get to Samui from Phuket in One Piece

      Ko Samui May 26, 2015 at 10:47 AM

      Hello fellow VTers and thank you so much to Samui forum contributors davidjo, ossiecass, jamiesamui, erwinkoo, pfsmalo, popi (greekcypriot) whose answers to FAQs in the forum have been very helpful as I plan this holiday to South Thailand.

      I booked a night's bed at Phuket Airport Residence early June. I notice the Airport Shuttle Bus to HKT town starts at 9AM while the Lomprayah Bus to Surat Thani (with connection to Samui on its fast boat) leaves their Phuket town office at 10am.

      The best advise i gathered is to just head for Phuket Bus Terminal to have flexibility in travel arrangements.

      The last ferry boat to Samui leaves 6-7pm, from what I have gathered in the forum.

      Lomprayah quotes THB 1,300 for the HKT-SAMUI transfer, which I believe is not too bad. If HKT town is worth visiting, maybe I should be staying one night at least before heading for Samui? I manage 11 days.

      Or maybe I should take advantage of the free bicycles at the Phuket Airport Residence to visit the town and find Lomprayah by bike to book my ticket for the transfer to Samui?

      Any travel tips from those who have been there?

      Really appreciate VT's service and hope to find friends in this forum too.
      I will pay forward the travel tips I get by writing about this experience and contribute
      my two cents worth of tips after my travel.

      I want to stay night on 24th July in Bangkok fearing the plane schedule timing problem (if any problem comes with delay flight or else). On 25th July morning / at noon i want to go to Phuket by air and stayed there till 26th July. On 27th July morning I want to come back to Bangkok and stayed there till 31st July. I will start for home by air at 4 PM on 31st July. I want to buy online return ticket for Bangkok to Phuket (and Phuket to Bangkok) now.

      This will be my first visit to Thailand. Would anyone please help me to finalize my schedule of Thailand tour.

      1. Is my above tour plan okay?

      2. What is the expected air fare of budget flight from Bangkok to Phuket and Phuket to Bangkok?

      3. Please let me know the name of the budget flight of the above route? Preferably plz. mention their website addresses from where i can buy online ticket.

      4. Please let me know few good 4 star / 3 star hotel names in both Phuket and Bangkok respectively. My budget for hotel accommodation per night around USD 60 to 70 in both the places. I want to buy the hotel accommodation now online.

      5. Plz. let me know the good tourist attractions in both Phuket and Bangkok.

      6. Plz. let me know if you have any other good suggestion pertaining to my upcoming Thailand tour.

      Thailand May 7, 2015 at 1:23 PM

      Hi guys
      First timers to thailand here. We are hoping to travel to a few places over our month in thailand including bangkok chiang mai phuket krabi phi phi and a couple of the smaller islands. We are not wanting to be fixed on dates for places. Will it be difficult to find accommodation? We are not overly fussy - just wanting our own bathroom. Will it be possible to just turn up in places and find a room for a couple of nights? Or is booking advisable? Thanks in advance for any help

    • 6 days between 16th June to 21st June 2015

      Thailand May 5, 2015 at 11:25 AM

      Hi Travel lovers,

      I am travelling Solo to Thailand between 16th June to 21st June 2015. I am on a tight budget and would like to know what are the best places to visit, economical accommodation mainly hostels, local transport options, and vegetarian food places to try.

      Some pointers - I want to explore the country through ship, train and by road.
      I am on a tight budget and hence Hostel accommodations/ couch surfing is preferred.
      Suggest some really authentic places. Not the common tourist attractions.

      Thanks! :)

    • Getting around and making hotel reservations in Thailand next month? Weather?

      Thailand May 16, 2015 at 7:40 AM

      We'll be arriving in Thailand on June 17th (about a month from now) and spending several days in Bangkok with a full three weeks in the country. We have a hotel in Bangkok, but beyond that, we don't yet have any travel or hotel reservations. I've been busy, but also hesitating to make exact plans because of weather. We'd like to go north to Chang Mai area for about a week, and then south to islands, Andaman coast and gulf coast for about a week. Is it best to travel by air, and if so, do I need to make domestic flight reservations in advance? Any recommendations on airlines to use? What about buses and trains? June -July are low seasons? Do I need to make hotel reservations in advance to get nice places at this time of year? Any recommendations regarding where to go to avoid all-day rainstorms and have some fun in the sun? Thanks.
