      How to get to Samui from Phuket in One Piece

      Ko Samui 14 hours ago

      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.

    • Travel by rental car from Surat Thani airport to Ranong?

      by akerlund1973 Online Now Sep 19, 2012 at 12:07 AM

      Hi,

      Does anyone know if there is possible to do this?

      I've been searching for a rental company that allow pick up in Surat Thani and drop of in the city of Ranong, but I can't find one. I've been in contact with several that say that they do not allow drop of in Ranong. We are flying in from BKK on the 11th of Dec this year and since we have 3 kids the bus does not feel like an option. We need to be in time for the last ferry or speadboat to Koh Pahyam. Any ideas?
