How to get from Bangkok to Koh Samui on a budget

Here is a brief extract from Steph's original article:

  • Flying is fastest and easiest way to get to Koh Samui is to fly from Bangkok, but also more expensive
  • Tickets are normally around US$100, cheaper if you book early
  • There are about 19 daily direct flights
  • Alternatively, to save money, you can take the budget airline from Bangkok to Surat Thani, and then ferry to Koh Samui.
  • This way is cheaper but also takes longer, total transit time is 3-4 hours
  • Nok Air sells a combo which included the plane, bus, and ferry - still cheaper than flying to Koh Samui directly
