We are staying in Khoa Lak for 12 days in May and this will be a much needed rest for us. However, we have a friend who lives in Koh Samui, who we would dearly love to visit. We are reluctant to use up 3 days of our precious time in Thailand travelling to and fro, and we are not sure how easy it is to travel to KS from KL.
I wonder would it be possible to make the trip (and back) in one (long!) day, by flying etc. (seeing our friend for a few hours would be just great) or would this be prohibitively expensive?
We visited Sri Lanka a couple of years ago, and found that distances on a map were very deceiving - a place that geographically looked quite near, would take hours to get to by car. Is this the same in Thailand? Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Maggie x
