Flight from Bangkok to Surat Thani??

Posted by mlr on 9/8/2009 at 17:06

Hey!! Just wondering if anyone thinks we will be making the right move by flying to Surat Thani and then the bus/boat combo to Ko Tao opposed to getting the Lomprayah buffet ticket from Bangkok? We can get a flight with Air Asia that leaves Bangkok at 11.25 and gets to Surat Thani at 12.35. From what i can work out it then takes approx 1 hour 30 mins to get to the ferry pier and approx 3 hrs to get to Ko Tao by the fast ferry? Or would we be best starting at Ko Samui for the 1st ...
