By Trains :
When traveling from Bangkok to Samui, it is usually best that you get a night sleeper train. These trains are more comfortable and ensure smoother bus and ferry connections. All trains run from Hualamphong Station. We advise that you buy a combination ticket that will include all your transport right through to Samui. Train tickets can vary greatly in price depending on the carriage class and whether the carriage is air-conditioned or fan. Expect to pay at least 6540 baht for a ticket.
When you're traveling from Samui up to Bangkok, the ferry leaves from Nathon at 2pm and connects to a bus to take you to Suratthani train station. There are many trains leaving every evening going to Bangkok. We advise that you book the ticket early to secure a better connection. Try to book the train two to three days in advance to ensure a seat. When leaving Samui, go to Suratthani to catch a train to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Singapore or Malaysia.
By Automobiles :
Bangkok to Samui buses leave from the South Terminal in Bangkok. There are V.I.P first-and second-class buses. These are all air-conditioned. For an easier journey, buy a bus/boat combi-nation ticket. The price for a V.I.P bus is around 450 baht including the ferry transfer from Nathon to Suratthani. The journey takes around 12 hours. As a rule, buses are not to be relied upon, especially if you are making a connection to a flight.
For buses from Suratthani to Bangkok, the ferry leaves Samui at 2pm. To get to Suratthani town from Samui, it will take approximately three hours. You will probably have to wait for about two hours in the town for the bus up to Bangkok. This bus will drop you off on the infamous Kao San road in Bangkok.
When leaving Samui, there are buses traveling to Penang and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia as well as Singapore.
Whether traveling from the airport or from Nathon pier, the cheapest mode of public transport is a songthaew (the red mini vans). If you do get a private taxi (usually yellow), agree on a price with the driver first.
