Hi

Cheapest from Perth to koh smaui.

Fly with air Asia to Malaysia ( KL ) flight from KL to Surat Thani ( mainland ) with air Asia bus to pier and ferry across to island. I have never done this route / airlines but know of people did this.

Best month : June - September

South chaweng, bophut, cheongmon beach.

Check it out here for some ideas www.sawadee,com/hotel/kohsamui for accommodations.

Cheers,

Hottest and driest months are usually March and April, but they are very very hot.

"Good area to stay with few bogans near shops and restaurants" - what does that mean?

That's pretty much how I read it. They want to stay where there are a few bogans but not too many.

I read it as them wanting to stay at a place with the least amount of bogans as possible.

Go onto Skyscanner or Matrix websites to find best price for flights from Perth. The other options is to click on flights at the top of this page. We always go in May and the weather is great. No bogans in Koh Samui I think most of them live in Pert dont they?
