|How to Get
to Koh Samui
1) By Airplane
The easiest and fastest way to get to Koh Samui directly is to fly
with the Bangkok Airways (BA). The flight time from Bangkok is about
80 minutes. BA also offers flights from U-Tapao (near Pattaya), and
Phuket. If you want to fly Thai Airways International, the flight is from
Bangkok to Suratthani and the journey continues by car to ferry pier
and then by boat ferry to Koh Samui.
The Koh Samui Airport is unique in its design where the facilities
are in open-air buildings like bungalow-resort integrated, surrounded
by tropical flower garden. The airport is located in the northern part
of the island near Bo Put beach. It was constructed in 1984 and
opened to serve the first flight on April 25, 1989.
Samui airport is now upgraded to customs airport. The improvement
includes immigration facilities, customs services, new passenger
terminals to facilitate direct international traffic to Samui.
