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.

The bus was meant to be a VIP bus however, it was not it was small squished and the charger ports didn’t work!
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.

We couldn’t take the bus from Don Sak to Suratthani, because it was overbooked… no one could really help us and they basically just left us waiting for more than an hour to catch a different bus…
As we arrived in Surratthani everything went smooth.
But the 2am stop at a cockroach-restaurant wasn’t needed.
Make sure to grab enough cheese sandwiches before the ride :)))

Everything was great. Just a place to rest and eat is terrible. I would rather stop at a gas station next to 7/11 and Amazon than at a terrible roadside cafe with cockroaches.

I lost my travel pillow but they didn’t reply to my email about retrieving it.

All is well! We took a bus to Bangkok. First you are escorted to the ferry, when they see that you are from Pantip. As soon as you get off the ferry, you will be met and told where and what time the bus will pick you up. The bus will take you to Suratani, where you wait and change to a bus to Bangkok. As already written, the bus is very blowing conditioners - take a jacket. You can get a blanket. The bus is fine. The seats are not very comfortable, but that's how it is. We arrived in Bangkok at 5 am.

Все хорошо! довезли до Бангкока на автобусе. Сначала вас проводят на паром, когда увидят что вы от фирмы Пантип. Как только выходите с парома, вас встретят и скажут - где и во сколько заберет автобус. Автобус везет вас до города Суратани - там вы ждете и пересаживаетесь на автобус на Бангкок. Как уже писалось, в автобусе очень дуют кондишины - берите кофты. Дают правда покрывало. Автобус нормальный. Сиденья не очень удобные но то такое. Приехали в Бангкок в 5 утра.
