There are only two airlines that fly to Samui, Thai and Bangkok Air. The lack of a low cost carrier on the route is the reason why you won't find any real cheap fares. Bus and ferry from Bangkok to Samui takes about 12 hours, the train is slightly faster.

Firefly from Kuala Lumpur to Ko Samui and Air Asia from Bangkok to Surat Thani (on the mainland near Ko Samui) are a bit cheaper then Bangkok Air.

Re: SIN-KohSamui-BKK-SIN. Anyone had experience?

In March we flew from BKK-Samui for about $60 USD one way per person. We did this flight after missing our train due to incorrect information! The flight was wonderful, only 45 minutes with food on flight and were allowed to go into Bangkok Airways lounge in BKK for free food as well! The overland journey by train and ferry (that we missed) was about $27 USD each and would have been about 12-14 hours.

We loved Bangkok Airways so much that we then flew from Samui to Singapore for about $140 USD one way per person. By this time we were spoiled after travelling overland from Beijing to BKK so we said what the heck and took the 90 minute flight.

Both of these flights were in March 2009 and we booked directly online with Bangkok Airways. As the previous poster mentioned its pricey because they (along with Thai Air) have a monopoly on the little (and extremely charming) Samui airport.

I've got some great beach hut info for Samui if you two are interested, let me know as I still have yet to put it up as a tip.

Re: SIN-KohSamui-BKK-SIN. Anyone had experience?

As it is your honeymoon I would suggest a villa room at the Koh Samui Renaissance. The hotel is located between Lamai and Chaweng overlooking a small beach. For more details see my tip on my Samui pages.

Two other suggestions would be Poppies and the Centara Hotel (both on Chaweng).

Travel Tips for Ko Samui

Wet and Wild Elephants!

by ATXtraveler

I could not pass up adding these pictures of one happy elephant. What was interesting to me was that the Thai helpers set out the bucket of water, but that was it.... the elephant seemed to take his bath all by himself (or herself!).

Nothing like a cold shower on a hot day!

Elephant trekking in Koh Samui

by Pomska

We just went there...I don't know where this place is but if I remember right they have signposts by the motorway. The road to the elephant trekking place was quite hideous, narrow and in a bad shape.

Scooter

by paula_p

Rent a scooter - they're a great way to get around. We rented on Ko Samui, but you can rent on Ko Phangnan as well (although it is super dangerous as the roads are pretty treacherous, so be safe). I think they cost about 300 BHT a day? Well, worth it, but wear your helmets - many people have been injured or killed screwing around on these things.

THE PLACE I ATE AT THE MOST

by mamasan69 about CHARLIES RESTAURANT

The restaurant is located right on the beach with a terrific view up and down the whole way. The food varies from Western to Thai, is priced right and very tasty. The local staff are very kind and like to joke around with the customers, especially if you end up staying for some time.
I thought this was a great place to eat and relax by the beach. At night they show a couple of DVD movies, so you can do much of the same into the evening hours. The dishes I ate the most would have to be the shrimp/mixed veggies over rice. This was very tasty and priced right (95bht). I would also suggest the banana pancake, it is very sweet but good. I tried out quite a variety of items off the menu, and they all were quite good. It wasn't hard for me as I was staying at Charlies and was only a 2 minute walk away.

Holiday with a Difference - Volunteer!

by JessH

If seeing the street dogs & cats in Koh Samui upsets you, and if you're a good person & animal lover, instead of turning a blind-eye... why not do something about it? Try something different during your holidays and volunteer at the Dog & Cat Rescue Centre Samui!
The centre is owned and run by Brigitte & her husband Werner (both German, but fluent in English). It opened its doors in April 1999 and carries out the following activities:

To inject all stray dogs and cats against rabies.
To sterilise all dogs and cats by castration.
To treat dogs suffering from mange.
To deworm all dogs and cats.
To treat all stray dogs & cats in the event of injury or sickness and give them somewhere to rest.

The centre either captures, sterilises, vaccinates and releases healthy dogs, or allows older or injured dogs to stay at their large shelter to live a happy and healthy life.
IF YOU FIND A DOG/CAT THAT IS IN URGENT NEED OF MEDICAL ATTENTION OR SHELTER, CALL: Tel: 0066 77 413 490 or 0066 81 893 94 43.

Not only dogs, but also cats are helped by the DRCS and Brigitte and Werner also try to rehome animals on the island, or even help tourists wishing to adopt a dog/cat and transporting them to their home country at the end of their holiday in Samui! Check out some of the lovely adoption stories of Thai dogs and cats finding new homes in Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, etc.!

John and I volunteered for 2 days at the large shelter at Ban Taling Ngam: bottle-feeding puppies, taking out ticks, and giving the animalslots of snuggles and love!


--> If you have some space in you luggage on the way to Ko Samui, these items are always needed & highly appreciated: dog/cat toys, old towels, flea collars, shampoos & powders, Frontline, etc.
If you would like to carry on helping after your holiday has ended, you can also sponsor and dog or cat for only USD 15.- / EURO 15.- a month!


Check out their website and experience a holiday with a difference.
