How fast can i get between domestic arrivals and international departures in the bangkok airport?

For those familiar with the Bangkok airport: On Wednesday morning, my flight from Koh Samui will land at 7:05 a.m. , and my flight from Bangkok to Taipei will take off at 8:25a.m. I'll have carry-on luggage only, and a Canadian passport. Will I have time to get from domestic arrivals to international departures in time to check in, get thru security and get on my Taipei flight? (They are two separate tickets.) Alternatively, will it be relatively easy to get on the later flight to Taipei if I miss the first? Its on China Airlines, I have no familiarity with their policies. [more inside]

chiang mai to Krabi: what flights options?? air asia to phuket? discover with Thai airways? other?

Thailand travel planning: trying to get from chiang mai to krabi to Denapasar,Bali as effectively as possible. So far I found these options: use Air Asia to phuket from chiang mai and take a cab for a couple hours to krabi. (to and and back) Use discover thailand fares from thai airways, but they dont have direct flight to krabi, so travel takes like almost the entire day :( Suggestions? travel time would be cnx to krabi 02/22 and krabi to bali 02/25.

Help me figure out where else to go on my Thailand trip!

I'm going to Thailand to see a friend, who is on an island off of Phuket. I'll be there for about a week. Apparently this island has great beaches and is great for relaxing, snorkeling, and doing a whole lot of nothing. I'd like to take two or three weeks on this trip, but the problem is that I don't know where else to go in addition to this island! [more inside]
