Plane was delayed 1 hour so we weren't out of the terminal for 1.5 hours after scheduled pick up time. Worried driver would not have waited. Happy to find driver still waiting for us. Very friendly driver and had hassle free transfer. Thank you.

Why do tourists choose buses and shuttle buses to get Ko Samui Karon Beach

This route is popular among both tourists and the locals of Thailand, and is operated by many types of public transport. Buses and tourist shuttles are the good option for those who are travelling alone or with a friend, for young people, who feel familiar with the country and speak its language as well as for those who would like to reduce the costs of their holiday.

Buses and shuttles vs. other types of public transport

The cheapest variant. Moneywise, a bus ride is either equal to other types of public transport (for example, suburban train), or 5–15% cheaper than any of these options.

Easy to change. A bus brings you to the stop, from which it is easy to get to your destination: in case of a tourist shuttle, it might even bring you to your hotel. Regular buses start off from the large transport hubs, heading to the most popular directions, and run through the central districts of the neighbouring towns and resorts. For example, the bus from the airport stops at the stop from which it is easy to get to your destination with maximum one change. Kiwitaxi tourist shuttles bring tourists to their holiday destinations, and not just drop them in the city center.

A small excursion during the trip. Buses go slowly and make stops. On some tourist shuttles there are attendants, who help pass the time by telling about the sights.

Disadvantages of buses compared to other types of public transport

Full in rush-hour. Buses are the most available variant, and most of tourists, who are not ready to spend money on taxi, use it. You are likely to travel with your luggage on your knees or even standing. Group shuttles are filled up evenly, so the lack of seats is almost impossible. However, there might be not enough room for the baggage.

Tickets are not always available. The reason is the same — buses in Thailand are a popular type of transport, so the tickets should be bought in advance as there might not be any on site.

 

Booking tickets for Kiwitaxi shuttles Ko Samui in advance, you eliminate both disadvantages of buses.
