We arrived at the bus Terminal 2hours before departure We gave the email and received the papers... But after a while i was asking for our bus and the staff told me this was the wrong ticket or booking So it was frustrating to get another bus to surat thani which had no charding options for cellphone.... At arrival after 10hours no akku/battery on phone..... We got blankets and water with some pack of Sandwiches and juice Very smelly bus (urine)

Despite the 2hr delay because of storm in Bangkok we enjoyed the experience of the overnight train to Chaiya.

Great service and very comfortable
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Dec 24, 2021
The trip itself was okay, but unfortunately, the place we told we was getting dropped off at was miles away from where we actually stopped. Which meant that we couldn't get to our hotel (which we booked for opposite where we was supposed to be dropped off according to 12Go). So we lost out on a precious few hours sleep and 460 baht for the hotel and another 250 to get us near to where we had to be the following morning. If you book this journey, be cautious as to where you actually stop.

Train is a often a great choice for long-haul travel especially if you opt for a night sleeper train with berths which will allow you to sleep all your journey through. To make the most of your train journey, choose the class of your ticket wisely.

Note that there are air-conditioned and fan-only carriages; private compartments for 2 or 4; hard and soft seats.
Though the upper class you get the smoother is your journey, often second class air-conditioned or fan-only sleepers are a good money saving alternative.


Vans are a great alternative - or, in many cases - your only option - if you need to travel overland within one and the same province or neighbouring provinces or states. Vans ply the roads between Bangkok and Surat Thani, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
