Koh Samui ~ Getting there and around

29 Jul

Actually there is a direct flight there by Bangkok Airways but because they are the only service providers which flies to Koh Samui, the prices can be exorbitantly high. It was my idea of course to look for cheaper alternative, thus we travelled fromSingaporeto Phuket on AirAsia airbus and then off to Koh Samui on a propeller type airplane which is actually really cute, Bangkok Airways Boutique Airline.

You may rent cars, jeeps, scooters and motorbike from them( the hotel) at a price. Definitely not cheap but that was the way around the island. There were a number of uphills and downhills along the way so going around on the mountain bike would be challenging. The scooter was my first option but I didn’t know how to use it and regret not learning when I wanted to. I remember Adilah and I were supposed to take lessons together but I don’t know what happened. They are the much cheaper means to get around as rent is lower and fuel is cheaper. One benefit of a car is obviously shelter in the heavy downpour on our way back from Chaweng with huge areas of flood in the pot-holed road.
