Just about any travel agent on Ko Samui will be able to put you on a direct boat/bus combination ticket that will take you staright from Samui through to Phi Phi. If you want to do it independently, this is the route:
Ko Samui -> Surat Thani (boat/bus)
Surat Thani -> Krabi (bus)
Krabi -> Ko Phi Phi (bus)
Thanks. So there's no quicker way?!

How much time do you think flying might save? I thought about flying too, but figured that with the check in wait at the airport on Samui, and the airport in Phuket being located so far north on the island, it might only save a few hours at best. It seems like the bus from Surat to Krabi was only about 3 hours anyway.
Alison, are you in a hurry? If not, I like Somtam's suggestion of the overland route from Surat to Krabi, and then maybe a boat to Phi Phi. You could also break up the trip with a relaxing overnight in Krabi too. It has a nice atmosphere too. Have fun.
Hey, did that route the other way round back in 1990. We snagged a taxi from Kata Beach (when it was just a beach and a few huts) to Phangnga Town where we stopped for a few days at a coffee shop managed by a Thai/US bloke called Looi Wesley. His boss was leaving for Surat Thani in a few days so we were fortunate to hitch a ride in the back of a pick up all the way. Stunning scenery...............
If I remember rightly it took around 3 to 4 hours to get to Surat THani.
