Convenient Bangkok to Koh Samui Flights

We booked our flights well in advance when making our travel reservations back home in Canada.  I was pleasantly surprised to see we had a number of flight times during the day to choose from.  In fact, when selecting Bangkok Airways, we found that we could choose from up to 12 flights each day to and from Bangkok to our chosen Island in Thailand.

It was wonderful to have the choice of so many flight times during the day, that we could decide when to leave that suited us best and not the airline.  Wow … how often does that happen?

The flight costs to vary according to each flight and time, but very little for that matter and not to be concerned with.  It was so relaxing to continue our journey after having a good night’s sleep, breakfast in the morning and leisurely making our way to the airport to catch our chosen flight.

A Brief Look at Bangkok Airways

This domestic Carrier began operation in 1968 and has built a solid reputation over the years as a world class airline.  Its popularity continues to prosper each year with continued ongoing expansion.  The airline is based out of Bangkok and now serves over 20 destinations in its schedule.

Such destinations include numerous stops throughout Thailand as well as Cambodia, China, India, Singapore and other popular Cities.  Presently there are 19 aircraft in Bangkok Airways fleet consisting of a wide variety of planes to suit their selected destinations.  There are propeller driven smaller aircraft for shorter flights to beautiful modern Airbus style planes for their longer journeys.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that our flights were on larger jet aircraft which made our trip less than one hour’s time to Koh Samui. We were expecting a smaller prop driven airplane that would have taken much longer.

Friendly Airline Staff

While enjoying our family holidays in Thailand, the one thing that stood out among all the rest of the amazing things in this Country was how friendly and easy going the Thai people were everywhere we traveled.  Of course this carried on when boarding our aircraft and the service we received during our flight.  From the helpful and friendly staff at the ticket counter to being greeted in the traditional Thai manner from the flight crew when boarding the plane, the service was that which would have been envied by most North American carriers!

From complimentary beverages and lunch served during our short flight with immediate assistance to any other requests, the service was a welcome treat not expected when so accustomed to traditional no frills flights in North America.

Koh Samui Airport How To Get From Bangkok To Koh Samui Thailand


Arriving in Koh Samui

After our short and comfortable flight, we arrived at our destination on the Island of Koh Samui.  This privately owned airport which I later learned is actually owned by Bangkok Airlines is a beautiful small island airport.  It is without a doubt the prettiest tropical island airport I have ever seen. icon biggrin How To Get From Bangkok To Koh Samui Thailand

From the moment you step off the airplane, you cannot help but notice the immaculate grounds and floral gardens as you are escorted on to a tram which takes you a short hop to the main terminal.  Even as you enter the restrooms, there are gorgeous fish aquariums inside!  The entire airport is spotless with helpful staff that will direct you in the right direction for all your wants and needs.
