GETTING TO KOH SAMUI
Surat Thani - Koh Samui By Ferry

samui transfersamui transfer

The ferry transfer is included in the bus fare because the bus uses the ferry (it cannot swim . . . :-)
On the island the bus first stops at the ferry pier and then at Nathon Pier. Remember to tell the resort where and when you want to be picked up. (Surat Thani - Samui app. 3 hours, ferry included).


samui transfer
Long rather narrow boat, lots of backpackers but which has its charm and all the transfers are easy.
