Want to explore the Thai Islands, but are unsure how to get there cost effectively? Canary Travel may have your solution within.

Koh Samui

Koh Samui, one of Southeast Asias most beautiful islands, is located east of Surattani adjacent to Koh Phangan.  Magnificent white sands surround the island with coconut trees in abundance.  A ring road encircles the mountainous inner region.  The best way to see Samui is by renting a motor bike or hiring a car with some friends.   

Chaweng and Lamai are the most popular beaches with Chaweng having the most varied nightlife.  Many bars and nightclubs and restaurants are concentrated in a narrow road which extends maybe 400 metres, the most popular area being in the region of the Green Mango.  For those who prefer a more laid back holiday you can relax by the hotel pool which will usually lead directly on to the beach.  In the evening the many hotel restaurants will sell their fresh seafood and tropical fruits on the beach.   

Travelling with Bangkok Airways the island is only 45 minutes away from Bangkok.  The airport is not far from the resort of Chaweng.  A cheaper way to get there is to take a bus or train to Surattani and then take a taxi to Donsak pier.  The ferry will take 2 hours to get to Koh Samui.

If you wish to go to this paradise island contact Canary Travel.  Prices start from 650 baht, including bus and ferry, buses leaving every evening from Bangkok.  Alternatively we can find a flight for you with Bangkok Airways.

Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is an island 70km from Surattani mainland and 12 km from Koh Samui.  Much of Koh Phangan is unspoilt tropical forest with superb diving sites and picturesque waterfalls. It is famous for its monthly Full Moon beach parties.  As well as the Full Moon party there is the Half Moon party just two weeks later.  There are many bars and nightclubs in the Thonsala/Haad Rin area as well as many restaurants selling international and Thai cuisine.  You will find places to eat from 40 baht to something a bit more expensive at the seafood restaurants.  If you want to have fun Koh Phangan is the place to go.
Although it is famous for its beach parties there is another face to Koh Phangan.  If you are looking for fantastic scenery Haad Yao, Haad Son and Mae Haad, on the West of the island needs to be on your itinerary.
To get to Koh Phangan you can fly from Bangkok to Koh Samui and take a ferry or you can fly to Surattani with Air Asia or Nok Air and then take a ferry to the island.  It is cheaper to fly to Surattani than flying to Samui but it will take five hours as opposed to one hour from Koh Samui airport.
Canary Travel can  provide transport from Bangkok to Koh Phangan by road or train, the bus being quicker!  Prices start from only 650 baht.  It is best to book in advance if you wish to travel in the Full Moon period as many guesthouses/bungalows get booked very early. Ask us for a quote if you need a guest house or hotel.

Koh Tao

Koh Tao with its natural beauty and varied marine life is the main venue in Thailand for learning to dive.  It is situated 70km East of Chumphon.  Koh Tao, also known as Turtle island has only recently been inhabited, in fact since 1933.  Travellers started coming in small numbers in the 1980s and soon the word spread about this paradise island.

Besides diving there are many pursuits on offer; water skiing, wind surfing, trekking and mini golf.  If you enjoy photography there are stunning views especially if you hire a longtail boat to take you around the island.
Sairee is the most popular resort on Koh Tao and in the evening you can relax on the white sand at the many beach bars or restaurants.
To get to Koh Tao you can fly to Samui which takes only 45 minutes, then take a ferry. .
The cheaper option is to take a bus/train from Bangkok to Chumphon and take a ferry to Koh Tao.  Canary Travel can supply a bus or train to Chumphon for only 650 baht including ferry.
