Bus from Bangkok - Koh Samui

Hi,

Were flying to bangkok later today and arriving there thursday 07/08/14 late in the evening.

We want to get to Koh Samui asap and were hoping to get the bus friday 08/08/14 morning using the lomproyah bus and ferrry combo, but are unable to book as it has to be done within 3 days of travel.

Do you think we would have any success heading to the goverment bus terminal in Bangkok Friday morning and trying to get a ticket for a goverment bus on the day???

Any one have any other ideas ??? All suggesions welcome. (Although were not entertaining flying yet, too expensive)

Thanks Guys

Hi

Sorry can't help with bus. Did you check price with air Asia or Nok airs? These two airlines are low cost carrier fly to mainland, both do package air + land + ferry to Samui.

Hi,

To the best of my knowledge the buses only run in the evening.
