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.
