Phuket to Koh Samui

Hi, could anyone help with the best way to travel from Phuket to Samui. Have looked at Bangkok air very expensive for an hour flight. Do any other airways fly this route? Could not see any airasia flights??

Bangkok Airways only

By road and ferry you have option of express a/con buses from Phuket Town.

Agents also offer 'vans' these seat 9-12, can be uncomfortable when crowded.

You can get a car+driver to take you, this looks expensive but it depends how many of you there are, if a family for example can work out 'reasonable' if not so cheap :)

Using a car+driver would be cheaper the driver taking you just as far as the ferry. If you want the driver to take the vehicle on the ferry and deliver you to where you are staying that takes up a great deal more of their time and hence would be more.

Hi

Totally, Bangkok Airways is the only company that flies the Phuket / Samui route. As the airline owns the airport, they have not allowed the budget carriers in!

You could get the bus up to Suratthani, then ferry to samui from there, much cheaper.
