zayco99 :

so we're catching a plane from bangkok to Surat Thani, and we then need to get to the ferry, to catch a boat to koh samui, how far is the ferry from surat thani airport? and how much taxi fare do u think it will be?

Khun Bob :
"It's about a 45 minute to an hour ride to the ferry. I have driven it a few times. I know they have the bus and minivans to the ferry, but I don't know about a taxi. a bus/ferry combo ticket to Samui If I remember it was in the $10 to $15 per person range."

"I would go to a travel agency and book the trip. So you will not have to pay a taxi for your own but you will get a seat in an aircon minibus which is much cheaper. The ferryboats are different class, different time and different speed. So the prices also differ."
