My husband and I will be coming to Koh Tao at the end of August/ beginning of September. I would like to run my travel plans on how we are getting there by some of you to see if they make sense!
29th- we arrive in Bangkok at midnight, stay in hotel by BKK overnight.
30th- 9:00am to 10:05am take Bangkok air flight to Samui airport
12:30- 2:30pm Lomparayah from Maenam pier to Koh Tao.
I'm assuming we will have plenty of time to make our ferry at 12:30 with our flight landing at 10?
9:30- 11:20 Lomparayah to Samui
11:30-2:00 Free time in Koh Samui (Will this be difficult with our large backpacks? Will there be some beach close by and restaurants to hang out at? I will be almost 7 months pregnant at the time, so carrying my backpack a lot is my only concern there)
3:40pm Bangkok air to Chiang Mai
Does this itinerary make sense to people? Is there a better way to do it? I looked into Nok air (which I realize is cheaper), but it seemed to me it would be difficult to get to Chiang Mai from there and that the ferries don't line up nicely with their flight times.
