hey guys

I was wandering could anyone give me some good advice regarding my travels in South East Asia next month. Im travelling from Langkawi
island Malaysia to Koh Samui, Thailand via Satun Ferry link to thailand. This is my first time in SE Asia and have checked extensively over the net to check for travel information between these two resorts. All i can seem to find is mini vans travelling via Hat Yai or Krabi to koh samui. Can anyone in the knowhow please give me some advise on how best to travel between these two areas, or on the use of minivans to travel in Thailand.

Any advise, guys would be really appreciative.
Thanks in advance

The route via Hat Yai is your shortest and most direct as the crow flys, Did a similar route myself a few months ago and although a bit tiring and uncomfortable is the only way to get there other than going to Krabi, Phuket or georgetown and flying (normally via bangkok or KL)

Thanks for the advise. I think ill head up through Hat Yai or take the scenic route through krabi. I ll take the mini vans i say. Very daunting since the first trip to asia alone n a little unsure of what route/transport to take but sure ill find my feet. Its great to know others who pass on advise about past experiences. Thanks again.

Cheers :):)
