To and from the airports

Flights from Bangkok

Bangkok is the bustling and throbbing capital of Thailand, and one of the largest metropolises on the planet. Suvarnabhumi Airport, also known as New Bangkok International Airport, is the world's largest airport by area.

Suvarnabhumi Airport serves both domestic and international travelers, and flights can be booked to towns and cities in Thailand, all the major metropolises of the Asia-Pacific, and most major International destinations. Suvarnabhumi Airport's passenger terminal building is the fourth largest globally. Bangkok's airport is the twentieth busiest airport internationally, and also has the distinction of the airport with the highest number of photographs tagged on Instagram in 2012.

Getting to Bangkok airport

Suvarnabhumi Airport is a distance of 25 kilometers east of Bangkok city center. To catch a flight from Bangkok to Koh Samui, the easiest way of getting to Bangkok Airport from the city center is to hail a metered taxi and take the raised freeway after paying the toll charges. However, another option that is more popular, quicker and cheaper is to take the Airport Rail Link's City Line, which takes just 25 minutes from downtown Bangkok. The City Line stops at the basement level of the airport. Trains from the city center to the airport stop at six stations, including Phaya Thai Station and Makkasan Station.

Getting to Koh Samui

With plenty of sun, sand and the sea, Koh Samui is a tropical paradise that is waiting to be discovered. Koh Samui is the second largest island in Thailand, after Phuket; but it is calmer, more languid and peaceful than its larger and more popular cousin. Some of the more popular activities in Koh Samui include attending the Buffalo Fighting festival, gorging on delicious rambutan fruits, and relaxing at the beach. Bo Phut beach is one of the most popular beaches in Koh Samui. If you are tired and weary, there is nothing more gratifying and pleasurable than a relaxing Thai massage at one of the many resorts in Koh Samui.

Arriving to the city centre

Flights to Koh Samui and the nearby islands land at Samui airport, which is just 2 kilometers from the city center. The international and domestic terminals are 50 meters apart. It has an open-air design that has been lauded as unique and beautiful. Ferries to various locations near the island depart from the Big Buddha Pier. Six kilometers away, at the Maenum Beach Pier, you can catch high-speed ferries to exotic islands such as Chumphon and Ko Tao. Shared and private taxis can be hired just outside the airport for travel within the island.
