Koh Samui to Bangkok Destination Reviews

Bus VIP Bus, Montanatip (Montanatip), Jan 8, 2024
Trip from Koh Samui to Bankok, from Pier to Surathani we have go via old bus dor aboit hour with no buffers then we change to small Van which take us another half an hour to some bus station where we have to wait almost 2 hours to get finalls to VIP bus, which was very comfortable and we got nice snacks and around 10pm evening even good dinner at bus stop. Main issues with this company is that you need to change transport vehicle several time, Ferry + old bus + Van + VIP bus. We have arrived slightly late about 15 minutes to Mochit

Uncomfortable bus to Bangkok, the 4-seat layout just isn’t wide enough to let people sleep comfortably, and my knees pushed into the seat in front. There are better options on the same route, if you want to sleep then use those.

Bus VIP 24, Krungsiam Tour (กรุงสยามทัวร์), Aug 14, 2023
Comfortable bus, they gave us juice, water and cookies with pineapple. We found it very punctual. I recommend you to bring a jacket because it is very cold and they give you a small blanket. The chairs are reclining and you can lay them down up to 30 degrees. You will travel with many smelly backpackers but for the price it is the best possible transportation . 5 stars

After reading a lot of bad reviews, we were worried in advance whether everything would work out. We were very pleasantly surprised. The connections worked really well and everything ran smoothly. However, the seats on the bus were relatively uncomfortable and it would have been helpful to be informed in advance that there would be a stop at night.

The bus was meant to be a VIP bus however, it was not it was small squished and the charger ports didn’t work!
Ferry Express, Montanatip (Montanatip), Apr 17, 2023
On time, good driver, good car. Pick up at the airport between arrivals gates 3 and 4 opposit the airport information desk. You will find your name on a paper with lots of other names; hanging there. On top the sign of the Taxi company.

I was amazed at the great service (free snacks and drinks at the airport and a meal on the plane) it was all super organized! I would love to go again, thank you very much!

Easy, convenient, efficient. Everything worked without a hitch, with just the confirmation on the cell phone. On departure from Samui, on arrival in Donsak and during the transfer to Surat Thani. No hassle, correspondents were there to welcome us. Contrary to the reviews we read and to several similar experiences in Thailand, the air-conditioning was not pushed to the limit in the bus, making the journey bearable. The wifi wasn't great, but it was there! Departure on time, arrival half an hour earlier than planned. Arrived in Bangkok early in the morning, a little before the start of public transport and before the traffic jams. In short, a great way to save time and money!

Some travellers consider taxi to be the most convenient form of overland transport thanks to flexible departure times, a possibility to choose the size of the car you need, and a hassle-free door-to-door service.

Things to remember: If you are planning to make detours during your trip, discuss it with your driver or service provider in advance as it may affect the price.

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 Koh Samui and Bangkok, 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.
