Great video with useful information! We always travel with Songthaews when in Koh Samui (last there in June/July 2014). We are rather good negotiates in Thailand, but the cheapest trip is normally between 75-100 baht per person, and that is the price we have heard other tourists are paying too? Are you taking shorter rides than us or have prices fallen or are you better negotiates? 😀
