Doing some research for friends and family travelling to Koh samui for our wedding in Sept.
They have found it a heap cheaper to fly to Phuket and so I'm looking at flights (around $205 return) Phuket to Kohsamui or perhaps private transfer/ferry.
Has anyone done this and know costs/ease to do and rough time. I have looked a everyone else information but it differs greatly.
Time is anywhere for 3 -6hrs across mainland then ferry 1.5 - 2hrs
Cost private transfer $250 - 400 (up to 10 people in mini bus)then ferry around $15 each (plus this would be each way as they would need to do them same on return)
Any info would be appreciated - Both families would have children so i want to make sure this trip is also achievable with kids in tow
