Hi,

The fastest way to get to the islands is to fly. There are many direct flights to Phuket from where you can take a ferry to Phi Phi. Phi Phi can also be reached from Krabi (flight from Bangkok) and ferry. While it is possible to fly directly to Koh Samui it can be expensive. However, Koh Samui and the nearby Koh Phangan and Koh Tao can be reached by flying into Surat Thani (on the mainland) and by bus transfer and ferry.

For budget flights check:

www.airasia.com

Several places can be reached by government bus and ferry. The likes of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao can also reached by train and ferry. The Lomprayah company operates a bus/catamaran service from Bangkok: www.lomprayah.com

Hope this helps for a start.

Hi,

Good luck with the planning and do ask more questions. Do take into account the time of the year you plan on travelling to Thailand.
