    The fare doesn't sound unreasonable, but there's little reason to do it by private car (unless that's your preference). You can fly from Phuket to Samui with Bangkok Airways for around 2000B and the flight takes 50 minutes -- and once you're on Ko Samui grab a ferry over to Ko Pha Ngan -- the morning flight gets you there with loads of time to spare.

    There's also regular buses throughout the day from Phuket to Surat Thani.
