How do you get to the city centre from Koh Samui Airport?

You can reach the centre of Koh Samui by car in about 45 minutes from the airport. One of the most convenient ways to travel is by getting a taxi, which you can find at the front of the airport. It is a cheap option and will normally take you under one hour to reach your destination. There is also the option of what the locals call ‘songthaews’, which are trucks with temporary seating in the back. These drive around frequently picking up people, so you can hail one when it drives past you.

These take about the same time to reach the city as a taxi does and they are also inexpensive.
