Koh Samui Airport Overview
Obviously, Koh Samui is a limited international airport with most of the flights departing having onward connections to Bangkok but the international status does allow certain mundane actions to be performed in the world’s most relaxed airport. Baggage can be checked in for connecting flights, visa departure documents can be completed and there is even a smile while going through personal security.
