Very good. Ferry was great. Bus was rather old and the AC was poor.

We thought is the other pier and it turned out to be pier 3 ... the map coordinates were wrong. But it was close so it was fine ????

Excellent trip. Quiet ferry, not very many people on board and so fast. Refreshments available on board, hot water, coffee and snacks and toilets. We left promptly just after 9am. I sat on the top deck and before I knew it we had arrived at the transfer port. Very helpful staff. I was a solo traveller with three suitcases and they were all so helpful, making sure I got on the right bus because I was a little unsure and helping me with my cases. Arrived at 10.30 in Donrak City. By 11.55 we had arrived in Surattani Town.The coach was clean and comfortable enough for me to nod off. When we arrived I was booked another vehicle to transport me to the airport (600 baht - £15.66) I had another flight and arrived at the airport an hour early. Very smooth service. Definitely recommend and will use again when in Thailand in the future. Thank-you Seatran, see you soon. JZ

What mode of transportation is the best one for my route?

Flights

Flying is the fastest and often the most expensive way to travel from Koh Samui to Surat Thani, but with a bit of luck you can score very good deals for as little as THB 5,402.

Things to remember: Note that some of the airlines may have restrictions on checked luggage weight or require paying extra for check-in, choosing seats or transportation of oversized luggage.

If opting for a flight, calculate the time you will spend getting to and from the airports as well as the waiting time before your flight, getting through immigration in case of an international flight and recovering your checked luggage.

In certain cases all these procedures can add no less than 5 hours to your total travel time.

Van

Vans are a great alternative - or, in many cases - your only option - if you need to travel overland within one and the same province or neighbouring provinces or states. Vans ply the roads between Koh Samui and Surat Thani, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
