Bangkok to Koh Samui Destination Reviews

LG

flight Economy, Bangkok Air (บางกอกแอร์เวย์ส), May 9, 2022

The seats were uncomfortable. The air conditioner worked all the time on full and it was cold. The blankets were too small for a tall person. We were dropped off at some station and waited for the next bus. The employee didn't speak English, so for an hour we didn't know what we were there for. Best situation, a small bus takes us to the ferry, we drive 5 minutes, the driver stops at a magazine and disappears for a good 20 minutes without a word. wtf?

the stopover for food was at 23.30 h. Why not doing this earlier and let people go to sleep ? Instead it is done half way through leaving just under 5 hours. But most of all: the temperature in the bus was far too cold. Put on 3 T-shirts and a jacket plus the blanket from the bus and still felt cold !!!

Bus terminal easy to navigate and bus waiting for us on arrival. Cold, but a hoodie and a blanket they provide do the job. Seats comfortable, if you can sleep on a plane you can sleep on the bus. Stopped for a meal at midnight, and switched to a minibus at 5:30am (turned up at 6:30). Took us up to the ferry, overall easy and smooth experience.
