We took another harbour in Koh Samui, because of the huge waves we could not land at Nathon Pier. The guys on the boat and the team informed the drivers, who are waiting to pick up the people on the boat. As we arrived at Meanam Pier the taxis were already there.

All in all a quite comfortabel Trip, pick up and arival within the estimated time range. The only thing missing have been some and clear and understandable instructions about which Bus to take from Phuket town and where to get off the bus. It has been stopping two times already before reaching the ferry to Koh Samui. Some people were leaving the Bus already during that stops while there had been no announcements or advices at all which passengers should leave the bus. So many passengers were confused ...

Из отеля забрали вовремя, а мы еще рассчитывали успеть позавтракать - не успели. Дальше пересадили в автобус -> паром, и с парома сразу домчали до отеля на Самуи. Раньше, чем по расписанию. Все четко.
