Flights Bangkok - Koh Tao/Samui

Hi there. I just booked our flights from Zurich to Bangkok for the month of May. Once there, we want to fly to Chiang Mai, then travel on Mekong to Luang Prabang and fly back to Bangkok, before heading down to the islands (Samui/Tao).

Can anyone help with information about this latter part, i.e. what's the best connection, especially to leave Koh Tao back to BKK to return home on the same day? Many thanks for your help. Best regards, Claudio.

Hi

Welcome to the Koh Tao forum. There's a section at the top right of the page called "Top questions about Koh Tao" in that section there is an FAQ featuring all the current ways to get to and from Koh Tao. Here's a link

tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g303910-c175571/Koh…

I will say I wouldn't suggest leaving Koh Tao on the day you have an international flight, you should leave the day before. Delays aren't too common but can happen and risking your flight home is simply not worth it. Of course if your international carrier has an interline agreement with Bangkok airways you could fly out of Koh Samui and go through departure immigration there.

Check out Bangkok Airway Web-Page. They have Valentines Special Offers, with substantialy discounted fares, but bookable only for a couple of days and limited number of seats.

Hi la0wei

thanks for your advice. The problem with this promo is that we are going to the islands on 05/18 and back on 05/18, so we don't qualify for it. to book our flight to Chang Mai at the beginning of our trip we need a promo code which I can't find. But it seems that Air Asia is cheaper anyway. Can you recommend them as well? Many thanks again. Best regards Claudio.
