Looking to head to Koh Phangan in either 6 or 10 weeks time (all depends on whether I have to work the full notice of 8 weeks due to my work!).

At first the plan was to fly to Bangkok, but what with the floods I am thinking about flying straight to Koh Sumai.

I take it the islands around there weren't anywhere near as badly hit by the floods? Can always go elsewhere the now, and then head to Thailand on route home when it is a bit safer!

Thoughts?

Suvarnabhumi is open and most of BKK is not flooded now. It will be better by your arrival date. Air Asia flies to Surat Thani for much less than BKK Air flies to Samui. Decide what is the best option for you.

Good Luck with your planning.
