Company Information

For over 30 years, Krungsiam Tour has been providing tour bus services between Bangkok and Suratthani. The Company’s slogan is “Safety in Every Trip," and that's why there are always two drivers for every trip, the primary driver and a substitute driver for safety. In addition to trained and experienced drivers, Krungsiam Tour offers buses in excellent condition with massage seats and personal TVs.

Combination tickets to Koh Phangan and Koh Samui

Krungsiam Tour offers combination tickets to Koh Phangan and Koh Samui which include a ferry ride to the islands. Buses originate from Krungsiam Tour Office in Ratchadamnoen Avenue and then pick up passengers at the Southern Bus Terminal (Sai Tai Mai) before proceeding south to Suratthani.

It is important to note that at Sai Tai Mai buses make a two-hour break. If you start from Ratchadamnoen Avenue, you will have to get off the bus to board it again later.

In Suratthani, the bus drops off passengers at the Seatran Ferry office where they are picked up and transferred to Koh Samui or Koh Phangan.

To Koh Phangan

From Ratchadamnoen Avenue to Koh Phangan you can board the 4.30pm express or VIP24 bus and the 5.00pm VIP bus. You’ll arrive 10 hours and 30 minutes later, with the express bus ticket going for THB 900, the VIP24 ticket THB 1,200, and VIP THB 1000.

Three Krungsiam Tour buses are scheduled to leave Southern Terminal, Bangkok for Thong Sala (Koh Phangan). The express bus at 7.00pm, the VIP24 bus at 7.30pm, and VIP bus at 8.00pm. The total duration of the journey is 10 hours and 30 minutes. Express bus tickets for this trip cost THB 950, VIP24 bus tickets THB 1,190 and VIP bus tickets THB 1000.

Pros

Krungsiam Tour express buses come with air conditioning, a washroom, and stewards.

Passengers also enjoy snacks on their trip.

VIP and VIP24 buses offer the same services plus the added advantage of food and TV for entertainment.

Children, up to three years may ride for free on their parent's lap.

Cons

The buses, however, use extensive air conditioning to avoid water condensing.

Krungsiam Tour does not accept cancellations or offer refunds; therefore, passengers should check in 30 minutes before departure. It is also important to note that arrival times are for reference only and sometimes buses can be late.

Some staff on the bus may not speak English.

Keep in mind

Those traveling from Bangkok to Koh Samui should check in at least one hour before departure. Because the trip takes 17 hours and 30 minutes, the bus stops in the middle of the route so that passengers can have a free meal at a local restaurant.

Travellers Reviews

A comfortable bus with good seats, snacks and tv screens, a very good trip, and amazing staff are just a few of the positive remarks passengers have given for Krungsiam Tour. The Company also receives negative feedback for poor organization, freezing AC, and long delays. However, as noted above, the AC on the buses is extensive so carry warm clothes.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Everything went well! The staff were friendly, everything they could do to make the journey pleasant, they did. The bus trip was comfy, just got very cold because of the airconditioner, so I would dress warmer next time.

The Four stars are for 12goasia. They are amazing and really helpful if you have any questions. The bus was nice enough and comfortable, almost fully reclining seats. My seatbelt was broken, and the operator tried to pretend it was working, until we were able to demonstrate it was legitimately broken. After which he tried to move two people out of their seats and give them to us. Which obviously isn’t kosher. The reviewer who wrote how everything was confusing, no information given and being dropped off in the middle of nowhere not knowing what you’re supposed to do, was spot on. That was exactly our experience. We did make it to our ferry terminal miraculously, so that was nice. So, 12goasia good, Krungsiam not so much

Bus was very spacious and comfortable and provided good movies to watch to pass the time. We had to get off this bus and wait at the office in Surat Thani to then be squished into a van to travel to the pier about an hour away - i dont see why the first bus couldnt have brought us all the way. The ferry was very basic but ok. The tranfer bus was waiting for us when we got off the ferry to bring us to our hotel, this was very convenient! Overall I would travel with this company again and would recommend this overnight journey to others.

Staff was very rude to all of the foreign passengers and upon arriving in Thurat Sani there was a lot of confusion getting off the bus and transferring to a van to go to the pier. The van driver also drove extremely fast and the passengers in the van felt in danger. Once at the pier, the ferry ride was quite pleasent but the bus and van rides were a bad experience. I would not use that same tour company again.

The seats and the drive from Bangkok to Surat Thani with the vip bus was really good. But the steward was horribly. He was rude and didn't give any information about the current stop. After we arrived the bus stop he also just left without saying anything where and when the shuttle to the pier will come. Thankfully there were two assistence which cooridinated the way to the pier. The shuttle service and the ferry was good and on time.

The bus was very nice, we got food and drinks on the bus. Also a lot of space and comfortable seats in the bus! I give one star less because we had NO idea of the schedule of the trip. All of the sudden the bus stops in the middle of the night to eat, but everyone was asleep and didn't know what was happening, so only 4 persons went to eat and there was a lot of food. If they would have told us in advance, probably everyone would get out the bus to eat. Around 6 o'clock in the morning, all of the sudden again the bus stops and the lady - who couldn't speak one word in English and was pretty rude so the communication was very hard and bad - made gestures that we had to hurry and get out of the bus. We had no idea what was happening. We had to sit in the middle of nowhere, and a mini-van picked us up. We had noooo clue what was happening, and nobody told us because no one spoke a word in English... Finally we arrived at the boat terminal. So eventually, after a lot of changes of transport, we did arrive at Thong Sala around 11 o'clock. We still give 4 stars because everything was arranged very well, but they could have told us what was happening or give us some clear information.

★★☆☆☆
Office was very difficult to look for and women in the office did not know a word of English. The bus supposed to arrive at 4:30 came at 6pm and then dropped us off at a bus station where we had no idea what or why we were there. We were told to exit the bus and catch a new one (we were not told what bus to catch) & the bus almost left with our luggage still onboard it!! After being told to get on 3 different buses a lady who knew where we were going finally fixed the problem. We get on the bus at 8pm and head to the Donsat pier. On the way we were once again asked to leave the bus and not explained as to why. We stood outside a ladies house in Surat Thani until finally a van appears to pick us up to take us to the pier. We were told the ferry was at 8am but it wasnt until 11am. Overall a very messy and confusing 18 hours of travel.

19:30 Bangkok South to Koh Samui. Most comfortable sleeper I’ve been on in Asia. 80% recliners. Snacks/drinks. Good a/c, blankets, pillows, seatbelts, safe driving. Individual TV system with a few movies in English but most in Thai. Helpful staff. Changed to normal bus in Surat Thani for last 1.5hrs to Ferry pier, but had plenty of room and still comfortable. Was in KS Hostel by 10am.

Organisation was quite chaotic, but friendly. Trip and bus were comfortable. I would recomment to take the bus departing 1930h from Sothern Terminal instead dep. 1630h from Ratchadamnoen Av. (to Sothern Terminal) due to the waiting time of more than 2houers at the Southern Terminal (nothing to explore there:)). Terminal can be reached easily by taxi.

Overall comfort seat, tell,air conditioning (though better put some clothes on on top because they won't turn it off). It is efficient. Does the work from A to B.. although yes the contract covers them by calling"culture differences" not blamable to 12go. Nonetheless, we have not same code but a smiley face in tourism industry is at least what you can offer to clients to make them feel comfortable!! The lady is rude, and stress full. When she drop us off not even a "bye"! She is briefing the schedule in Thai but not in English even if she speaks English! So when costumers ask her details of the journey she put on a funny face and not responsive. driver was more considerate. For the food stop-over, don't expect much of it. Let's say it's nice to have a break . That saying, the price is good for what you get more or less

The initial bus we took was comfortable but they were late getting us to the transfer bus, did not tell us or really give us proper instructions when dropping us off leaving us to fend for ourselves and have to argue with the transfer bus company about getting to the ferry on time. I was highly unimpressed with the lack of direction or care - the company knew they’d messed up and didn’t do anything to rectify or explain or apologise. Thankfully the girl at the transfer service, after a lot of broken English communication and stubbornness, organised a transfer for us to get the right ferry on time - definitely cut it fine though and was not ideal at 6am.

Pague 1050 bath por el viaje pensado que no quedarían plazas y al llegar a la estación el mismo viaje salia por casi 300 bath menos. Se suponía que eran 14 horas de viaje y en total fueron 20 largas , el personal no habla nada de inglés y a veces se hace complicado porque no sabes ni donde vas ni lo que tienes que hacer. Para mi la primera y última vez que compro un viaje anticipado.

Good trip, got given a snack & small bottle of water & coffee. Also given a pillow and blanket, very handy as the air on makes it very chilly. Tv screens which you could also play games on. Bus was well kept and tidy. Polite staff, although they didn't speak much English. Stopped for toilet/market/hot food once. Overall a pleasant experience, much better than previous long bus journeys which we booked through tour companies. Seems that booking it yourself is the best way to go.

The trip was an easy ride. The seats were very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and made the trip as easy as possible even for westerners who didn't speak any Thai. The snacks were good. Instant coffee, water, a Coke, and I believe a pineapple pie. There are tablets w games and the like. The overnight ride is definitely the way to go. They even gave plastic wrapped blankets and (not plastic wrapped) pillows
