Getting to Samui from Bangkok

Whats the best way in anyones opinion to get to Samui from bangkok. I've read you can get a bus or a train, but that the train may take longer? I find this a bit odd, but then again, I have never been to thailand before.

Also, can you smoke on the long haul buses and sleeper trains?

Many thanks, heading out on 26th April! Very very excited!

Hey 'Gas...I bought the tickets within about 3-4 days of each leg of the flight. (BKK Air) at a hotel travel desk. Paid 2000 Baht each way plus tax. Even saw some fares go as low as 1500 Baht the day of the flight (to fill the plane, presumably).

When looking into booking a flight in advance (at the time of planning the trip to Thailand, "in advance" is defined as approx. 2 months), I remember a price of about 5600 Baht, round-trip, tax included. Noon flights, each direction.

Add about 1000B for taxi fares on both ends (twice) to get a total cost estimation.

Speaking of flights, I'm off to Florida again in a few hours. Need a fishing fix....becoming a monthly habit. The winter has been a long and cold one 'round here. None of that global warming bs people like to fawn about. ;-)

Am thinking about making another trip to LOS this fall. Haven't quite decided yet but it's at about 60% chance and growing. The key deciding factor is where I'll be living by then (am looking around for something new to do and in a new place...gotta get out of Detroit).

...should probably add, September isn't exactly high season. This may have something do with lower fares being available vs., for example, April.
