There are different possibilities how to get around Koh Samui: You can either take a taxi, rent a jeep/motorbike or take the local pick up taxi “Songtaew” to see Samui Island. As the ring road is only 51 km long, it is very easy to get to the main tourist attractions and to the most beautiful beaches Lamai Beach, Chaweng Beach and Bo Phut Beach within a short time.
While using our free shuttle service to Lamai and Chaweng Beach during the day you might need a taxi for the night time.
Taxis in Samui are very convenient but most of them do not use the taximeter. We recommend to ask for the price before you start your journey. The prices usually start from about 100 Baht and can get up to 600-700 Baht.
To take a taxi is an easy and safe way to get around the island.
Rent a vehicle
The easiest and most flexible way to see and discover Koh Samui is by renting a motorbike or a jeep. Plan your day individually with your partner or family.
The vehicles can be rent here at Silavadee Pool Spa Resort:
Jeep: from 1,000 Baht per day
Motorbike 300 Baht per day
Songtaews – Pick up Taxi
Pick up taxis, the so-called Songtaews, are quite popular in Koh Samui and be found mostly between Lamai and Chaweng. You can flag a Songtaew down anywhere by ringing the bell or bang on the roof to get off. We recommend to negotiate the price before hopping in.
