Koh Samui Trip

I have been thinking of visiting Koh Samui for a very long time. So this weekend I have decided to have a trip to Koh Samui. I know that Koh Samui Trip can be really expensive if I go in peak season. But the peak tourist season just ended and prices dropped at Koh Samui at this time of the year. Koh Samui is one of the most popular island destinations in Asia which attracts tourists from around the world. Like Krabi and Phuket, Koh Samui is famous for white sandy beaches and clear blue sea.
Before I go to Koh Samui, I collected the following information to get the most out of my trip.

Bangkok Air is operating daily flights from Bangkok to Koh Samui. But when I checked none of flights at my convenient time got seats available. Other options were train and bus. The train did not suit my schedule and my friends did not want to go by bus. So we decided to drive my car to Koh Samui. Hope we will have a pleasant journey.
