Koh Samui Travel Map
Koh Samui Travsport

Samui is an island located about 80 kilometers from Suratthani, the nearest mainland city. You can fly here with Bangkok Airways directly from Bangkok. They also have direct flights from Phuket, Krabi and Singapore.

Those on a budget can take the trains from any of the above cities for as little as a tenth of the cost of flying here. Many people book sleeping berths in the overnight trains from Bangkok. You will disembark at Suratthani station very early in the morning, from where you are taken by bus to the ferry for the 1 to 2 hour crossing to Samui from the mainland.

Buses are the least expensive option for those on a tight budget. They also travel to Suratthani from all major cities in the region.

If you have a car or motorcycle that you wish to bring to Samui, you can drive to the Donsak Ferry Terminal in Suratthani and put your vehicle on board.

Getting around Koh Samui

Samui is an amazing island to explore and discover. For a relatively small island there’s a wealth of diversity in terms of landscapes, vistas, flora and fauna, and wildlife. Not to mention the many other attractions which you may want to visit. There are several forms of transport available.

Songthaews are converted red pick-up trucks which operate as the local bus service. They travel all around the island and are particularly visible in and around the bigger resort areas.
These provide a reliable cheap and practical way to get around

By Taxi

By Taxi

Taxis are readily available in most areas. There are some taxi drivers who will use the meter and others that won’t, if in doubt you should negotiate the fare before agreeing to the journey.
Prices can vary depending on distance and on the time of day or night


By a rented Jeep

By a rented Jeep

Rented cars, Jeeps and pick-ups are available from many agencies and some recognised international companies. Being in control of your own transport can really open the island up for you and give you the freedom to go where you want when you want and spend as much time as like there.

Always make sure you are insured and be careful when navigating the roads. Despite what you may witness wearing seatbelts is the law and the use of mobile phones whilst driving and drink driving are illegal


By Motorcycle

By Motorcycle

Cheaper and more flexible transport can be provided by hiring a motorbike. It is not recommended for those with no motorbike experience as the road surfaces can be littered with potholes or sand and some of the driving can be erratic.

Shasa Koh Samui Hotel
In 2009 the project ?AQIQ? transformed a decrepit rarely-used library in Wat Praderm Elementary School in Koh Samui into a modern, fully-stocked, and appealing library facility under the belief ?Creativity is the Beginning of Success? the new library which provided a safe and educational place for the local children. However, as more children came, the library needed to be updated and expanded again. Ms. Chanchakorn (Pin) Chaipromprasith saw the need and has initiated a new project called ?Little by Little?, which will upgrade the library into a haven for the children, complete with more books, creativity stations, and computer labs with up-to-date technology. This project will bring great benefits to students by giving them ample opportunities to gain knowledge, as well as provide them a creative and relaxing facility to spend their free time.

Ms. Chanchakorn was inspired to start ?Little by Little? based on her experiences when she was a child, studying in Australia, then America. She saw how knowledge was combined with technology and creative projects in those countries to provide the best education for children. She also discovered that there were many comfortable areas for children to hang out while studying. She realized she had to bring this style of learning to Thailand to benefit the Thai children, so she gathered her friends to start ?Little by Little?. The project is based on the idea that ?knowledge does not only exist in a book,? and it is Ms. Chanchakorn?s desire that the creative library will become a place where children feel at home and love to spend time studying and enjoying themselves, a place where they can hang out, more like Kids Zone rather than just a library.

Since one of Ms. Chanchakorn?s passions is collecting memories by taking photographs during her travels, she has converted her love for photography into an effective fundraiser for ?Little by Little?. She invited Mr. Pornpoj Kanjanahattakij a famous celebrity photographer who is well known as Sixtysix Visual (@sixtysix), to join her project. He has kindly accepted the invitation and will select fifty of his signed original photographs for 3,000 baht per piece. Each photograph is 42cm by 61cm and is one of his popular pieces.
