I can fly from Phuket to Samui but means I have to back track and the new flight times mean I have to overnight in Phuket.
So....I was thinking of hiring a driver with car to Surat Thani then ferry to Samui.
From what I've read the road trip should take about 3 hours (good chance to see scenery) then the ferry about 2 hours.
- would THB 3000 be about right for car/driver?
- does the ferry always travel that time of year (June) or does it depend on weather?
- Do I have to pre-book ferry or can I get a ticket at ferry terminal?
