hi peeps, i am arriving in Bangkok on 10th oct (after a 3 week tour of vietnam and cambodia) - we have booked up for 1 night accomodation in Bangkok and plan to go straight to Koh Phangan on the 11th. Can anyone please advise me on the best way to get there? How expensive is it to fly to Koh Samui then get the ferry over? We want to be on the island for the full moon party (schedueled for 14th)- how long do the trains take? Any advice would be much appreciated!
Also, doea anyone know the rules and regs regarding arriving in Bangkok - we drive into Bangkok and after touring the islands we will fly from Bangkok to Sydney. I have heard we will need to buy our flight ticket to Syd before we arrive in Bangkok? Is this correct? We have no time constraints so would like to tour Thailand until we decide to move on?
