    • Best area to stay?

      Ko Samui 23 hours ago

      We will be there from Feb. 18 - Feb. 28. Online, I have read that there are a number of beaches, areas, etc. We'd like to be on a nice beach, staying at a 5 star hotel, which seem to start about US$200/night. Since we do not intend to have a car, location and convenience to restaurants, shopping, etc. is important. We want to avoid tacky areas. Online, the comments from one person say that beach #1 is the best, then the next person commenting says it is terrible, and so on. How do we figure out the best place to stay?

      Hi all,

      I'll be travelling by ferry from lipa noi to Surat Thani and need to get to the airport. Do you have any suggestions as to the best way to get from the pier to the airport? Everything online is a bit confusing. Should I just take a taxi?

      Thanks, Natalie

    • Is it Safe at night in Surat Thani

      by Brett-Wallace Online Now Dec 25, 2008 at 10:43 AM

      We will be arriving in Surat thani at 11:30 by train.
      We intend to go to Ko Sumui by ferry but I am told they dont start until 5am.
      Does anybody know the area who can advise me on what to do for 5 hours+ wait until the ferry starts in the morning.
      Should we make our way to where the ferry goes from and wait there?
      Is it safe at night here?

      Buses from Surat Thani to Krabi

      by Diplos Online Now Dec 14, 2005 at 1:26 AM


      Does anyone know how regularly buses leave from Surat Thani to Krabi or what the taxi fare for this journey would be (what is the distance?).

      Basically, I could take an overnight train to ST and then bus to Krabi, but that means hanging around Bangkok for an extra day so I'm thinking of flying in to ST and then either spending the night there and catching a bus the next day, or else catching one the same day.

      Flights are pretty full this time of year!
