easiest way to get to koh tao

we're travel to thailand in feb 2011 and intend to head to koh tao.

can anyone tell us the best and easiest way to travel there? our flight from uk lands at around 0800. there are flights to surat t arriving at around 1530 on a saturday.

is surat the best place to fly into? should we consider another form of transport from BKK? is arriving at 1530 too late to try and get over to koh tao the same day?

we would really appreciate anyones help and advice, thanks.

Hi there, you have several options, to get to Koh Tao. Fly from BKK to Koh Samui, if you arrive BKK at 8am, the flight takes approx 1 hour, once you arrive on Samui, take either the Lomprayah ferry, departs 7am and 12 noon or the Seatran ferry departs 7am and 13:00hrs, ferry journey takes 1 & 1/2hrs, with a brief drop off at Koh Panyang. Aternately fly in to bkk, go to Koh San rd, and get a Lomprayah or Seatran joint bus/boat ticket. The over night bus takes you to Chumphon city, where you take the ferry to Koh Tao, again ferry journey 1 hour 30 mins.

Hope this helps.
