July-Aug Trip to the Gulf Islands

Posted by Trizzo on 28/5/2013 at 11:49

Hello everyone,
We just booked tickets for our Thailand honeymoon (July 24th- August 12th). Our approximate itinerary will be:
July 24th : 26th : Bangkok
July 27th : Aug 1st : Koh Tao
Aug 2nd : 5th : Koh Phangan
Aug 6th : 9th : Koh Samui
Aug 10th : 12th : Bangkok

This will be our first international trip and we’re gettinga little nervous and want to make sure all the details fall in place.
My first question is, when we fly into BKK, what is the bestmethod of transportation to our hotel? Should we just grab a taxi or is thereshuttle/subway connected to the airport?
Secondly, I would like to purchase train tickets fromBangkok to Chumpton. Should we pre-book tickets online or just wait until weget there? If your recommendation is to wait, where can we buy tickets in thecity? We would prefer a night train so we’re not taking up precious daylighthours commuting.
Lastly, how does the itinerary look overall? Are we pushingit by visiting each island in the span of 20ish days? If so, which island wouldyou all recommend the most? We are not looking for luxurious accommodations andwe enjoy beaches, scenery and good food!!
This is truly a fantastic site and has already helped somuch in preparation for our trip. Can’t wait to hear from you all! J
