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?
I'm sorry but I really couldn't give a toss about tours in the Himalayas, especially seeing as my query is about THAILAND. I have reported your post and it will be deleted.
Hi! At a market name " Talad kaset" is the area that there are mini bus service connecting between airport and downtown Surat and Koh Samui.(there are Talad kaset 1 and 2 which is in same area just devide by a road )This area is kind of central area to find the vehicle to go everywhere in Surat. 1.To go to Koh Samui..From airport ,normally there's shuttle service from the airline send passenger to downtown and some pier,( bus wait right in front of terminal)Tell them to go to "Talad Kaset 2" from there ,you can buy ticket to Samui cost about 220 bath include price for bus and boat. 2.On the way back..from Samui,go to Talad kaset again ,from the pier ,may be by tuk tuk or motor cycle taxi(try to ask peple about the price first cuz some motorcycle driver may charge you too much)for tuk tuk it should not be more than 20-30 B.to Talad kaset .Buy shuttle bus from "Pantip tour" to airport cost 100 B./person.(Tel number 077 272230) .It'll take about 30 min(30 km).The first bus from there is around 7am. and it 'll have bus for every flight to BKK which are 7am,8.00,9.30,13.30,14.30,17.00,18.30 and 19.00. But if you are in rush and need taxi,it'll be expensive and up to negotiation also,and it'll be about 500 B. Enjoy the trip : )
Hi, If I remember rightly from 2011 you have to get a bus from Donsak to the station in Surat Thani (a good half-hour ride from the ferry) then another bus out to the airport.
The bus/minibus transfer Don Sak Pier (Samui, Phangan) - Surat Thani Airport is many time a bad game!!
-Sometimes they stop in Surat Thani and let you wait 1-2hr.
-Another company break your bag in the luggage space and stole precious things.
-The bus is EVERYTIME to late for the phangan ferry at Don Sak, so you must wait 2hr in the restaurant.
I think the best is when you take with some other a taxi from airport to Don Sak. My favorite is the night vip bus from bangkok to phangan or samui. I don't loose time, comfortable and cheap (about 900 baht). WARNING: Not take a khao san bus, very bad!!!! Only the gouverment bus!!
