Koh Samui, Surat Thani, Thailand



It is an island belongs to Surat Thani Province, off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand, close to the town of Surat Thani on the mainland. It is Thailand's second largest island, with an area of 228.7 km2. It has 800 kilometer from Bangkok

 It is surrounded  about sixty other islands, which compose the Ang Thong Marine National Park (Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park) and include other tourist destinations (Ko Phangan, Ko Tao and Ko Nang Yuan).


Samui has grown increasingly as a major tourist destination with development of infrastructure, accommodations, attractions as well as activities both on water and on land. Activities includes scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking and canoeing,  jet ski or sailing,  kite boarding and bungy jump, cable rides, trekking or mountain biking and golf.


How to get there:


By Bus

It can be cheaper and less stressful to get bus/ferry combination tickets that take you all the way to (and from) Ko Samui.
The government-bus fares from Bangkok’s Southern bus terminal include the cost of the ferry. These are 900/700/500B for VIP/1st class/2nd class. Most private buses fromBangkok charge around 450B for the same journey and include the ferry fare. From Th Khao San in Bangkok it’s possible to get bus/ferry combination tickets for as little as 280B, but service is substandard and theft occurs more frequently than on the more expensive buses. If an agency on Th Khao San claims to be able to get you to Samui for less, it is almost certainly a scam as no profit can be made at such low prices. TheSurat Thani travel agency Phantip Travel has offices in Na Thon.
From Na Thon, air-con buses fan out over Thailand and there are at least three daily departures for any given destination, the first one being at 7.30am.

 

By Train

You can buy train/bus/ferry tickets straight through to Samui from Bangkok. Buying these combination tickets saves you some hassle, though you really don’t save much money – especially if you include getting to the train station.

 

By Plane

 

Bangkok Airways (0 7742 2512) flies about 16 times daily between Ko Samui and Bangkok. The flight takes about one hour and 20 minutes. Other destinations from Samui include Phuket, Pattaya and Chiang Mai. During high season flights may be booked out six weeks in advance, so plan accordingly. If Samui flights are full, you might try flying to Surat Thani first, then taking a boat. Delays are also common, so plan accordingly for connecting flights.
The Samui airport departure tax is 500B for domestic and international flights. The attractive open-air airport has a nice bar, restaurant, money-exchange outlet and hotel-reservations counter.
There are almost 10 daily departures between Samui and Ko Pha-Ngan. These leave either from the Na Thong, Mae Nam or Bang Rak piers and take from 20 minutes to one hour (130B to 250B). On Ko Pha-Ngan there are two piers (Hat Rin and Thong Sala), with the boats departing from Hat Bang Rak servicing Hat Rin, and the other boats Thong Sala. From the same piers, there are also around six daily departures between Samui and Ko Tao. These take 1¼ to 2½ hours and cost 345B to 550B.
Car ferries from Don Sak and Khanom land at Thong Yang, about 10km south of Na Thon.

Koh Kood is located at the end part of the Thai eastern maritime territory near the border of Cambodia. It is the last Island in the Trat. It has an area of 105 square kilometers; it is the second biggest island of the province of Trat, after Koh Chang. 
The island is flat compared to Ko Chang. It has highest mountain on the island called Khao Phaenth, measuring 315 metres. It has many wonderful beaches with crystal clear water namely Ta Pho Beach, Khlong Chao Beach, Thakian Beach, Phrao Beach and many others.

The best time to visit this island is between beginning of November and the end of February. At this time it is relatively cool, dry and mostly sunny.

How to get there:

BUS FROM BANGKOK TO TRAT Only by riding the first bus out of Bangkok (at approximately 06:00 - 06:15) from either Ekkamai Station or Mor Chit station, you will you be able to make the Siriwhite pick up in Trat City at Noon. Catch the last bus (approximately 23:15) from the Ekkamai or Mochit bus terminals in Bangkok to meet our shuttle at the bus station in Trat at approximate 04:30. The shuttle will be waiting at "gate" number 25 at the bus station. During the low season these times will differ, so may sure to indicate that you will be traveling to Trat by bus.

TRAT AIRPORT PICK UP'S are now available, but only by using the private Limousine or paid Song Teaw service that is being provided by the Siriwhite speedboat company. If you arrival time is after 12:00, or if you have enough time or prefer to pay a little less, you can also take an airport limousine or (shared) taxi to Trat City and / or spend a night in the very affordable, yet comfortable S. A. hotel to find some of the cheapest sea food in the country in an open air restaurant next to the street, nearby.

BANGKOK AIRPORTS or DOWNTOWN BANGKOK PICK UP'S are available, but note that if your flight lands after 07:30 you will have to spend a night in a hotel in Trat or in a simple bungalow at the Laem Sok pier, as the minibus won't be able to get you to the pier before 13:00 (last departure from the mainland to Koh Kood island) . For more comfortable Limousine transfers from Bangkok, contact the Siam Resorts Bangkok Limousines, which also offer family sized minibuses. There is also the 07:30 Bangkok airport to Koh Chang bus that makes a scheduled stop at Trat's bus station, but that won't allow you to make it on time for the 13:00 departure of the speedboat.

FROM KOH CHANG ISLAND there is a twice daily speedboat service from Koh Chang to Koh Mak and Koh Kood that takes guests directly to our own pier in Bang Bao Bay on Ko Kood island. Departures are at 09:00 and 11:00 from Kai Bae Beach on Koh Chang. A free pick up service by car is provided by the Koh Chang Speed boat company and is available from any of the resorts on the west coast of Koh Chang, starting pick ups around hour prior to the departure of the speed boat to Koh Mak and Koh Kood. This speedboat service from Koh Chang to Ko Kut is currently not available during the low / "green" season. The new Lonely Beach Express shared minibus service has a departure at 00:00 from Suvaranbhumi Airport which will put you on Lonely Beach a little before 06:30. From there you can request a pick up at 08:00 for the 09:00 boat from Koh Kood to Koh Kut, after you've had time for a nice cup of coffee at the Siam Hut Lonely Beach coffee

 FROM THE MAINLAND: The Koh Kood resort has joined forces with the Siriwhite speedboat services, which sail from the Laem Sok pier on the mainland, to ensure our guests a safe journey all the way from the mainland to Ko Kut island. Siriwhite speed boats / Laem Sok Group Speedboat currently offer twice daily speed boat or ferry boat transfers to Koh Kood island. The first boat departs from Laem Sok pier at 09:00 to take you to the Koh Kood Resort, while the second speedboat or power ferry departs from Laem Sok at 13:00 stipt to take you nearly direct to our own pier in Bang Bao Bay. A free pick up service from the S.A hotel, the bus station or any of the hotels in downtown Trat is available at one hour prior to departure, but it will have to be requested at least 24 hours in advance. Note that If you are staying at the Koh Kood Resort, you will NOT have to book the speedboat tickets via the Koh Kood boat website: we will gladly do that for you once your reservation is final.
