How to Get Around

The most convenient way to get to Koh Samui is by flight (simply click here). Finding transport after you land at Samui Airport (USM) can be a hassle, so it is always best to pre-book a hotel transfers with our Go Places Recommended Hotels™ or Hire a Private Vehicle (we recommend www.vipcars.com). With taxi’s far and few especially based on where you’re staying on the island, we recommend booking one with our partners grab.com, or an alternative NaviGo. Join the luxury band-wagon and turn-up to venues in style with our recommended VIP Limousine Service (www.blacklane.com), or skip from area to area on a fun island Tuk Tuk or a Songthaew (baht bus). These are the most ideal ways to get to and around Koh Samui.
