Koh Samui

What about

Crystal clear waters and idyllic beaches, lush tropical greenery and modern ‘island style’ shopping molls, fancy jewellery shops and colourful local markets – you name it – Samui has it all. No wonder that the third-largest island in Thailand, Samui has become popular amongst both luxurious holiday makers and backpackers on a budget who can each find the experience, accommodation, activities and entertainment that they come for. Whether its candle-lit dinners on post-card beaches, wild and adventurous partying through the night, treks through forests and jungles or days spent oiled up on the beach, Koh Samui is the right choice to get it.

Getting to Samui

Koh Samui is an exceptionally popular destination for travellers, and as such, travelling from Thailand's capital, Bangkok, to Koh Samui is easy, understandable and affordable for those who are not content to fly to their destinations and miss out on all of the scenery that a land trip to the South of Thailand has to offer.
Take in the country's natural beauty as you go, by travelling to Koh Samui by bus or train, and then ferry for a relaxing, comfortable, affordable and eye opening trip. Travelling by day unlocks the mysteries of Thailand while you are in flux, but for those who have done the trip before, night buses and trains are an excellent way to get there without suffering the boredom or discomfort of a long trip.
Travelling to Samui involves a trip to Chumphon or Suratthani where a ferry to the island can be caught.

From Bangkok via Chumphon/Suratthani bus + ferry

Buses to Chumphon/Suratthani leave from the Southern bus terminal in Bangkok. They take from 6½ hrs to 12 hrs to arrive. Busses depart regularly during the day, the majority reaching Suratthani between 1am and 5am, so be ready to while away some time before boarding your ferry to the island.
By far the most popular service is that offered by Lomprayah company with buses leaving from their office in Khao San Road in Bangkok which is convenient if you are staying somewhere in the area. The bus brings you directly to the pier in Chumphon from where Lomprayah catamaran delivers you to Koh Samui via Koh Tao and Koh Phangan. You can instead take a bus to Suratthani from where there is also ferry service (Lomprayah, Seatran) bringing you to Samui in 2–2½ hrs. Book a couple of days in advance.
There is another option, also from Khao San Road in Bangkok, offered by Thai Sritram company. It is cheaper than the popular Lomprayah service and uses Seatran ferries to reach Koh Samui, though your journey will last two hours longer than with Lomprayah.

From Bangkok via Suratthani train + bus + ferry

Catching the train from Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok to Chumphon or Suratthani is a fantastic way to travel for those who need an added level of comfort and mobility. If you are not too interested in the scenery or have done the trip before, then opt for a night train. First, second or third class sleeper are the most comfortable options with chairs that fold out into bunk beds, space to walk around and a certain degree of privacy depending on which class ticket you choose. A very convenient night option is #85 train departing from Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok at 7.30pm and arriving to Suratthani around 7am.
Combined journeys to Samui include train tickets from Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok, bus transfer to the ferry port in Suratthani, and the ferry trip to the island.
Note: Due to reasons concerning passenger safety, the Thai government have prohibited the sale of alcohol on trains so you will not be able to buy any on the trip (beer included).

From Koh Phangan to Koh Samui

Koh Samui lies a stone’s throw away from Koh Phangan. Lomprayah and Seatran take sheer 20 minutes to get to the island; there are slower Songserm (30 min.) and Haad Rin Queen (50 min.) ferry boats, too.

From Koh Tao to Koh Samui

Both Lomprayah and Seatran Discovery take 2–2¼ hrs departing from Koh Tao’s Mae Haad to Maenam and Bangrak Seatran Pier on Samui correspondingly. With Seatran you have to book at least one day in advance while Lomprayah requires two days advanced booking.

Can I transport my car to Samui?

There are two operators which provide car transportation to Samui. Seatran leaves from Donsak on the mainland delivering passengers and their vehicles to its pier in Nathon. Raja ferry, also from Donsak, heads to its own port in Lipa Noi on the western coast of Samui. Choose port-wise as both services are equal in price and quality. Note that you may have to make a long queue to board the ferry with your car while heading back to the mainland. To avoid this, book your ticket in advance. Another important thing is that you cannot transport your car from Samui to the nearby Koh Phangan directly; you will need to sail back to Donsak and then make a new journey to Koh Phangan instead.

Getting around

Koh Samui is large and you will need a way to get around easily, since doing it on foot is very limiting and uncomfortably hot, but there are many far better options available depending on how you like to get around.

Taxis (songtaews) are a great way to travel long distances on the island, or if you want to go out partying and know you shouldn't drive yourself around. While they are convenient and can get you everywhere from anywhere, this is probably the most expensive option, as you can expect to pay between 50 and 100 THB a person which adds up quickly.

Motorcycles are a fantastic way to get around. Motorcycles (and bicycles, too) can be rented from almost every resort on the island. Rentals are cheap, petrol is cheap, and they give you the freedom to go just about anywhere you want to go as you explore the island’s natural wonders. A word of caution though, you will undoubtedly see many tourists about with bandages and scrapes on their arms and legs, almost all of the time these are caused by accidents on scooters. You should be able to find a scooter for less than 200 THB a day. Most of the rental shops insist that you leave your passport behind. While this is a bit unnerving, it is also standard practice throughout Thailand, so be very careful with your scooter if you want to avoid any trouble.

Where to stay

Hat Chaweng is packed with all kinds of accommodation to suit any budget. It is the epicentre of the action, and the northern part of the beach can be quite noisy. Hat Lamai is another popular choice attracting holiday-makers both with its long stretch of white sand and a good choice of restaurants, bars and shops along the main road. In between the two beaches hides a little gem of Crystal Bay with – as the name suggests – crystal clear waters embraced with imposing boulders of a small bay. Hat Bang Rak (or Big Buddha Beach) leis relatively close to the airport (you may hear some noise), but the white sand of its western part compensate for it.

Bo Phut is of particular interest not because of the beach but thanks to its trendy boutique hotels peppering Fishermen’s Village where strong Chinese influence can be felt even today. Families often opt for Mae Nam with its gentle sea. The West Coast is not a good choice if you come for the sea, but the sunsets are exceptional there.
Tip: Do not spend all your time on Samui on one and the same beach; try at least a couple of them and you will be rewarded with the diversity which this island has to offer.

Activities

Besides usual diving, snorkelling, kayaking, jungle-trekking and waterfalls find a couple of hours to visit the only rum distillery in Thailand, Magic Alambic. They produce Caribbean rum with a variety of natural flavours (obviously, they have coconut rum, too). They offer tasting sessions and sell rum, too (600-700 THB per 700ml bottle). Located in Baan Bang Kao. Travellers with the little ones in tow will love Paradise Park, which is a considerably large petting zoo, which is also one of the best viewpoints on the island.

Passenger reviews out of total 70,716 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

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.

Extremely impressed by this service! Everything ran so smoothly from start to finish. Yummy dinner at a lovely hotel, half empty bus down to Surat Thani, morning ferry with a beautiful sunrise and then a really easy transfer to our hostel with a friendly driver! All for £30 each (bargain if you ask me) and much cheaper than flying for a long-term traveller

Train is the same as 15 year ago.. but now little bit more dirt and cockroach everywhere. When you close your curtain ik become verry hot but when you open them it's to cold from the airc. Curtains are not blinding so the light what stays on keep me out of my sleep. The food we ordered was not warm, also the breakfast egg was cold.

Everything went really well and my guide was very courteous. There was even a dinner included at a rather fancy hotel - it was a buffet/teppanyaki-style all you can eat kind of thing - everything tasted really good. I'm vegan and thanks to her giving that and a few details about my nutrition to the chef he made sure that all i got was definitely plant based. Right after I had my meal, i was picked up by a bus. The ride was also enjoyable especially because there was only one more passenger apart from me. I slept very well and the the next day a lady woke me up and told me how I would get to Koh Samui by ferry. The ride was nice and I got some breathtaking views and nice camera shots. There was also a taxi-Service from Koh-Samui Port to my Hostel. I had to change the address because my first host canceled. It was no problem after I gave the taxi driver the new address and I got there safely. All in all it was a very good experience and I would recommend it to anybody anytime. Thank you so much, Raja ferry port. Sidenote: The best part was the price. For the full transfer including dinner I only paid 1.260 THB which is a steal if you ask me. A flight, tho much quicker, would have been about 120€ - more than 4 times the price I paid. And I would have had to get transportation to and from the airports as well.

As a family, we booked 4 beds together which we got (side by side). Kids loved it, much better than flying. Air con was ok, not too cold. Food+drinks are available in the train (evening and morning) and will be delivered directly to your bed… Don't hesitate.

train #167.3 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways
★★★★☆
Overall smooth - from picking up tix and some money exchange at hotel across the esp since it was a holiday. Be early! Takes a long time just to cross the street - very busy! Seats and sleepers were together. Travelling as a family. Be warned no western toilet in class 2 sleeper. One of us had bed bugs or something despite sealed clean sheets and bedding, lots of bites on legs and arms . They held the bus for a late train arrival. It was worth it to get van to hotel and not haggle with taxis once on Samui.

The 12Go service was hassle free and easy. However, our train was delayed 2.5 hrs which was a little frustrating but this is not 12Go's responsibility, as they are separate companies.

★★★☆☆
Service from 12go.asia Agency was very good - nothing to complain about! But the train ride was a little difficult which is why I’m rating the trip with three stars only. First of all the train was 4 hours delayed! I had heard about frequent delays, but this was still unacceptable as we took the overnight train and for at least one hour the cars were simply waiting for the main car to start the journey. The 2nd class sleeps AC was an interesting set up: they do not shut down the lights all night long, so if you have trouble sleeping with lights on then it’s not your kind of train. Also, the door was left open most of the time - very carefree customers I believe, plus an automated sliding door which was simply broken. It was super loud throughout the night. We also saw several bugs around the sleeper berths which made it harder to relax. The English is - as apparently everywhere in Thailand - very little and I personally would not want to fall ill on this train ride. For our return trip to Bangkok we are now considering taking first class if they still have seats, hoping it will be much more comfortable. Again, 12go.Asia is not accountable for the train service in Thailand - their service was exceptionally good and organized.

train #43 Class II AC, Thai Railways
★★★☆☆
The ride on Express Train 43 was what I expected. Seats were ok, food was simple but ok, floor was cleaned twice, toilet was like most train toilets, avoid them if you can. Unfortunately there was no more service after lunch had been served around 11am. Which was bad as we had three hours delay. No information at all was given about the delay. So be prepared, bring some extra time, a good book, some food and drink and be as patient as the Thais are. To see the landscape was really a nice experience. And that was why we chose to ride the train.

★★☆☆☆
12go was great. But I would not recommend this train. The 2nd class car was very dirty and grimy. Car 12 was actually dirtier than the lower class cars. Cockroaches on train. Several doors between cars were broken. We were stuck between cars for 10 minutes. The service in the restaurant car was extremely rude. We were very uncomfortable there. The train left on time but arrived an hour late.

We think that the service was great. Definitely take advantage and have the complementary meal. The buffet had all types of food options and traveling with a full stomach makes everything more enjoyable. The staff were very kind and everything was very organized once we got to the ferry. My only suggestion would be helping us to find trustworthy transport once we got off the ferry as we were swarmed by many offers.

After tiring journey in bus with chilling temperature and no proper response from bus driver or attender. We couldn't sleep and had wait at the port for 2.5 hrs to catch the ferry. The ferry guys ripoff on transport after ferry. Overall avoid this journey in case you can take the flight.

train #167 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways
★★★☆☆
The service of 12Go is excellent! The night train from Bangkok to Surat Thani was okay. We had 2nd class sleepers with fan. They made the beds just after the train left at 7 'o clock, so if you have an upper bed sleeper, like us, one had to lay down or stand in the hall way... Then the sellers, they sell stuff until late at night, loudly saying what they sell... It was uneasy, okay but not restful...

The crew was very good and helpful. 1st class sleeper cabins are private, but old and not well maintained and the shared bathroom was not maintained at all - a single dirty standing toilet with no toilet paper or soap provided. An ok way to travel on a budget but would be nice if they invested a little bit more as it could be a great experience.
