    Can you get a submarine to Ko Samet?

    Not sure if this belongs in the travellers tales section but who knows?

    Really I am thinking of 15 ways of getting to Ko Samet.

    A submarine would be fun but not sure if it's possible from Bangkok - I know there's these yellow subs. in Pattaya so perhaps one could be booked ? - it would need to go up the river some way to collect me from the Klong Toei area though

    Then there's all the obvious ways - bus , car , truck , motorbike , push-bike , walking , mini van and tuk- tuk . These would suffice in theory if one were to build a bridge - thus it is possible.

    Animal transportation could be used such as horse , cow , buffalo or elephant - the beasts would obviously have to be whipped and made to swim across - a good feast would await them so not really cruel if you ask me.

    Well finally I could always walk , run or crawl and then swim myself.

    and yey, the easy way - fly - helicopter , aircraft (is there a run-way on K. samet otherwise I'd have to parachute out?) or even hot air balloon.

    I think that's 20 - any more suggestions are welcome......

    How could this be done? - does it snow in Thailand?

    I think they're called Uzbeks not Uzbekistani.
