Is it expensive to fly to Koh Samui?

Flights to Koh Samui can be expensive, but there are many ways to get here.

The reason behind the higher flight prices than usual is that Bangkok Airways owns  and operates the International Samui Airport. Bangkok Airways built the  Airport in 1989, that today receives more than 1M travelers per year and is considered one of the most beautiful airports in the World.

Being privately owned, airport fees are set up for profit, not to boost the local economy, hence the higher price than other destinations.

There are many alternatives to flying to Samui including train, bus, and ferry combinations to make travelling to Koh Samui more affordable


Is Koh Samui value for money?

Again, it depends on what you want to compare it with.

Once flight tickets are paid, Thailand offers an unmatched value for money and Koh Samui is no exception. The island offers beaches, activities and events to be entertained for a long holiday.
