Hello there fellow riders, my friends and I are planning to ride up to koh samui and we are currently doing research and preparation for the ride. Was hoping that some veterans here could give us some pointers.

 

We were hoping the touring kakis here could share some insights pertaining to the ride up there. Suggestions of places to stay, precautions, route to take and other useful information.

 

Any tips or pointers would be helpful. Thanks in advance guys. :)

Below are what I have. Hope it is useful.

 

Hotel

1. Danok. I usually stay at Satit Grand View (via Booking.com). Got own basement car park and reasonably good breakfast. If have time, can also visit the Panda Garden/Dinosaur park in the evening (take tut tut or ride). At night can try the superly good Rock Band (Skyline Pub) further up on the left of the same road as the hotel. A cheap Mookata buffet outlet is just opposite the pub.

2. Koh Samui. Panupong Hotel (via Booking.com) is a good choice. Just next to the very big Central Festival Samui.

 

Ferry to Samui

Can buy tickets upon arrival at Donsak Ferry Port. Ticketing building also have restaurant for meals. In the ferry, bike should park main stand or get wooden stacking blocks from the crews. 2nd level rest area got air-con and small stall selling drinks and titbits.

 

Day Tour @ Samui

1. Can ride own bike, rent a scoot or book a day tour. Quite a bit of places to visit.

2. Book snorkeling trip. Koh Tao is nice but further away than Angthong. http://www.kosamui.com/snorkeling/#

Just came back from 7 days trip to samuI. Pretty straight forward ride. Sg, hatyai, samui. Samui, penang, sg. Lots of petrol stations along highway at Thailand. Not to worry. Take seatrans ferry at Donsak . Bike plus rider plus pillion 360bhat per way . Ferry starts from 5am till 7pm hourly. Inside samui is just a 60km circuit. Either way you go you will make a full circle. I pumped only twice for my 22litre r1150gs inside Thailand . Petrol is 26bhat per litre. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks for the tips! I'm already somewhere near Bangkok - at the town called Ratchaburi. If you would like to follow my adventure, I have an up-to-date blog at sgBikerBoy.com. 😊

is there any changes in the thailand border rules? previously i went to thailand border i just had to buy thai insurance to enter thailand.

 

Legally, you still need insurance cover when you are in Thailand. But that is seldom checked - until one gets into an accident, that is. Depending on how far into Thailand you are heading, your Singapore (and I'm assuming that you're from Singapore) insurance policy *might* cover.

 

I've compiled a guide to riding into Thailand, if you're interested: http://sgbikerboy.com/guide-to-riding-a-motorcycle-from-singapore-to-thailand/
