Taxis

Hi, we were paying 300 baht last year from big C to bohput just at the entrance to fisherman's market...is that about right? As we are going again in may.

Many thanks

It's ridiculous, but it's about right! Last time I was there one even had the cheek to try and charge us 400. But he went back down to 300 without too much argument.

hi

try the new taxi service called

samui navigo

you need to download the app to you smart phone but it very easy

after that just send a message for a pickup

cost is 100 baht start then on the metre

so big c to fishermans would be around 200 baht

cheers

I have always travelled in Samui by songtaows or sometimes motorbike taxis for shorter journeys. Last summer all the Songtaow journeys I made cost 100 baht.

Hi

Last time we used them they had 15 cars but were looking to expand as they were so busy

Great to have some compertition for the overpriced taxixs on the island

As its an internet based bussiness (you cannot call them)sometimes the internet connections are not good

But otherwise fantastic service

Cheers
