Best way to book flights to Koh Samui from Bangkok?

Hello,

I wonder if someone could advise on the best way to book flights to Koh Samui (the island, rather than Surat Thani mainland)?

Looking online, flights from Bangkok are approx £200 - is it worth booking at the airport on the day of travel to get a better rate?

I only have 10 days in thailand so really wanted to fly direct rather than travelling via Surat Thani or taking the train.

Many thanks

Flights to Samui are generally very busy so I wouldn't chance just turning up at the airport hoping to get a flight and you will find they won't be cheaper, but probably more expensive. You will just have to book through a travel agent and pay the rate.

If you book to Surat Thani you will find it quite a lot cheaper and then you can just book the Lomprayah Ferry from the airport and they take you by bus to the port, all very easy.

I would book online now. As Cassnu said, you will probably find it more expensive if you wait and you might not get on the flight that you want. There really isn't any competition for flights direct from Bangkok to Samui so you won't get "cheap" flights. When we booked there were a couple of flights a day with Bangkok Airways that were a bit cheaper (I think early in the day and later at night) but it wasn't significant.

Hi

Totally agree, on this popular route you won't find it getting any cheaper!! We buy our flights early to bag a web bargain, which sell out early!
