  • Transportation between Koh Tao and Koh Samui: several boats by day

    See here for: Schedules for travel in the Gulf of Thailand

    Several boats depart daily from Koh Samui to Koh Tao (and vice versa). Koh Samui has 4 major ports:
    One in Maenam (North of Koh Samui at the western end of the Mae Nam Beach), used by the Lomprayah company.
    One also used by Lomprayah for certain schedule and Songserm Nathon (to the West of Koh Samui).
    One to Ban Rak (Big Buddha Beach), used by the Seatran company.
    The port from where you leave will depend on the company that you choose: Seatran, Lompraya and Songserm. Note that the Lompraya company can either go / come to/from Maenam either to/from Nathon according to schedules.

    The companies provide for transfer between Koh Samui Hotels and their home port. On the side of Koh Tao, a single port of arrival and departure at Mae Haad.

    Speed Boat : the quickest to go Koh Tao Koh Samui is the speed boat, much more expensive than the 'traditional' boats. Count more 25000THB for the rental of a boat. It is therefore far from being the means of transport most common on this route. The company Petcharat)www.samuispeedboat.com) offers this Koh Samui - Koh Tao and Koh Tao - Koh Samui trip.

    Where book, with whom and when? No need to book weeks in advance to make this journey. The day before in the aftermath may be sufficient. All Koh Samui and Koh Tao travel agencies and probably the reception of your hotel can you booker this journey.

    The approach is therefore simple to prepare this routestart by reading the 2 companies Lomprayah and Seatran websites to get an idea of schedules and rates, and once arrived on the spot, that it is Koh Tao or Koh Samui, ask at your hotel either a travel agency to book your trip. On-site travel agencies are very Koh Tao as to Koh Samui. The travel agency or your hotel can also book you a taxi to go to the port.

    If you are autonomous for your travel You can also go directly to the port and reserve your tickets at the wickets of different companies. The companies are also able to book you a taxi which will come seek you at your hotel.

    Discover Koh Samui

    If you ask the question of whether Koh Samui is worth the detour, our answer is Yes! A lot of things to do and see in Koh Samui, which is a much larger than Koh Tao island. Reason why we decided to make a website dedicated to this destination for all information about Koh Samui click here: Koh Samui by Samui - passion.com

    Koh Tao and Koh Samui

    If you have the opportunity to both islands, please. Do both. Now if need choose between the two time and envy, here are some tracks to light many differences between Koh Tao and Koh Samui.

    Human dimension: First Koh Tao is much smaller than Koh Samui and Koh Tao highway infrastructure is much more basic to Koh Samui. This feature provides a much more human and intimate dimension to Koh Samui to Koh Tao.

    Accommodation, restaurant and cost: Largest and most populated island of Koh Samui offers more choice of accommodation for long term rentals. It should be noted that equal comfort accommodation in Koh Samui is slightly cheaper to Koh Tao. Also found in Koh Samui a range much wider restaurant to Koh Tao.

    Activity on land and sea: You will find a whole bunch of activities that you will not find on Koh Tao Koh Samui: numerous temples, zoo, aquarium, ride on elephant back, market days for the shopping and night market for eating. We also note that can be seen much more often to match Box Thai to Koh Samui to Koh Tao. Another point height of Koh Samui, are bars with live music and much more provided as to Koh Tao event news. Other differences in water sports, Koh Samui can be of the seas and the parascending scooter while it is impossible to Koh Tao. On the other hand, Koh Tao offers scuba diving and the ability to more easily make excursions or small walks nature through small paths for mountain or across the island to end in the end, on foot or by scooter. Koh Samui, it is hard to depart from the civilization.

    Lifestyle: both Islands offer a relaxing atmosphere. But mentalities are. Koh Samui to a nearest atmosphere of the continental Thailand. At Koh Tao we see probably more Burmese and foreign and Thai. It's not the case in Koh Samui or you feel more in contact with the Thai population and its culture.

    The beach, sea and fish: Koh Samui offers beautiful and wide beach of sand end idem to Koh Tao but the beaches of Koh Tao are smaller. A highlight of Koh Tao and that found more easily small coves with rock and full of place in the atmosphere more intimate to Koh Samui. Also, is this is where the magic of Koh Tao the sea is much more clear and can go from almost any beach of Koh Tao with a mask and a snorkel to see fish, things almost impossible to Koh Samui.

    General impression: The general impression of the comparison of these two islands is that Koh Samui offers a sense more civilized, and a more bustling atmosphere, family and richer than Koh Tao. The highlight of Koh Samui, is the diversity of activities that can be done. However, Koh Tao gives a feeling more intimate and closer to nature. Everything is smaller in Koh Tao, human size that dominates. The big highlight of Koh Tao is therefore to this nature side and above all the beauty of the seabed of Koh Tao and small coves in which can still feel like a Robinson, little conceivable thing to Koh Samui.

    Diving Koh Samui

    The question is often. Where to dive in Koh Samui? And, you can dive in Koh Samui? The answer is "Yes but". Actually there are Koh Samui dive centres, and if Koh Samui has some (spot) places where diving not very exhilarating, Koh Samui diving centres do you'll often not dive around Koh Samui, but around Koh Tao (after a 2-hour boat trip) or about the Ang Thong national park. These long trip by boat to reach the top spot are costly for diving centers. The tariff is therefore reflected on your invoice.

    Diving in Koh Samui is therefore more expensive to dive at Koh Tao. Then if it is diving attracts you, made the way to Koh Tao to alleviate your currency door and really enjoy this activity.
