Travelling to and from the airports

Flights from Bangkok

Bangkok International Airport, also known as Suvarnabhumi International Airport (meaning The Golden Land), was named by King Bhumipol Adulyadej. It was designed by Helmut Jahn of Murphy/Jahn Architects and although it has just one large terminal, it has the world's fourth largest single-building airport terminal, comprising about 563,000 square meters. The airport also has the world's tallest free-standing control tower and two runways.

Bangkok is one of the world's leading tourist destinations and a key hub for international and domestic transport throughout Thailand and Asia, supporting around 50 million passengers each year. It also operates transfers from Bangkok to Koh Samui and other popular islands, with some airlines running several flights per day.

Travel to Bangkok airport

The quickest and easiest way to get to Bangkok Airport (or Suvarnabhumi International Airport) to connect with your flights to Koh Samui is on the Bangkok Airport Link. The line makes 6 stops between downtown and the airport (about 30 minutes). It starts at Phayathai Station, which connects with the BTS Skytrain and runs to the airport via Rathchaprarop, Makkasan (which joins the MRT underground), Ramkhamhaeng, Hua Mark, Ban Thap Chang, Lat Krabang and Bangkok Airport. Otherwise metered taxis are a hassle-free way to get to the airport (about 40 minutes from downtown, traffic depending). If coming from Silom Road, Sukhumvit Road, Khaosan Road and Hualampong Railway Station you can take the Airport Express Bus.

Arriving in Koh Samui

Thailand's Koh Sumai may be synonymous with Full Moon Parties and lively resorts, but there are still enough places to escape to with some secluded beaches, remote jungle interiors and fisherman's villages giving it a broad appeal. Along the northern coast around Mae Nam, visitors can enjoy stretches of idyllic beach to laze on and crystal clear waters to swim in. The more upmarket resorts are clustered around Bophut. Chaweng in the south is party central with the most significant convergence of leisure activities, bars, clubs and nightlife on the island. Nearby Lamai, also in the south, is a bit more laid-back but near enough so you can still dip your toes into the action.

Travelling to the city centre

Flights from Bangkok to Koh Samui arrive into Samui international Airport, situated between Bophut and Chaweng beach in the northern part of the island. There are numerous transfer options available from the airport, including private air-conditioned taxis, private minivan transfers and shared airport transfers that can be organised at the transport counter in the arrival hall and run to key places on the island such as the Big Buddha, Chaweng, Choeng Mon and Lamai. Furthermore, there is a good choice of well-known international car rental agencies, which are also located in the arrival hall and can be pre-booked online.
