I was wondering could anyone give me some good advice regarding my travels in Thailand next month. Im travelling from Phuket to Koh Samui, im thinking of taking bus or minivan (budget travel). This is my first time in Thailand and have checked extensively over the net to check for travel information between these two.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

It depends on your budget really. The easiest way is to fly. I think we paid about 4000baht with Thai Air and it took 40 minutes.
It just saves the hassle of getting on a boat, sitting in a minibus and then getting on another boat which can take hours. Really up to you though. If you do want to get the boat/minibus there will be plenty of travel agents in Phuket that will sort it out for you. Go into a few though to make sure that your getting the best price.

Happy travelling
