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 3,667 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.

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.

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.

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.

Amazing buffet with servers and build-your-own stir-fry, tons of seafood, and delicious fancy desserts. Back home, that alone would have cost as much as the trip! Bus ride was long but comfortable to sleep and saves you a night's accommodations. Air-con was freezing and the blankets they provided were welcome. Luckily it was cool in the morning on arrival so the shock wasn't too much. Ferry transfer was straightforward enough. Interior ferry rooms had air-con and they were basically empty. There's a small shop where you can buy chips and drinks but nothing fancy.

It's reasonably efficient but don't expect luxury. On our trip, the train was an hour late arriving but you have to wait for a bus anyway so it just meant a hurried breakfast instead of a long drawn out one. The camaraderie on the train is good but the Thai food hawkers are a waste of time and annoying in the passageway when the beds are being made up or taken down. On the other hand, the modern ferry trip is via spectacular with mountain and then island scenery.

They brought us to an amazing buffet before the trip. Then we all got on a WOW comfortable coach. Everyone had enough space, chairs reclined etc. Bathroom smelly though but thats the same on any coach. Blankets given, air con worked perfect. Arrived at the pier and the staff there were not helpful. Fortunately, it was pretty self explanatory - you hand your ticket to the counter and they give you another ticket for the ferry.. once you see the boat approach and everyone else walk towards it, you get on! Would recommend :)

Everything was very good expet for the ladys that work for the company (not the one that welcome you at the departure hotel) they are VERY rude, they don’t make any effort to speak english and are not helpful at all, this company should work on their employees, they makes you feel bad.

Overall "procedures" could be improved. Train was completely fine, but the transfer to the ferry was rather chaotic - same for the transfer from Nathon to the hotel

Staff in Bangkok helpful. Staff at stops rather noisy amd unfriendly. Nice modern comfy bus. Ferry old and used but on time. Long ride (17h)...but thats the cheapest option to get there.

Not very organised and a lot of waiting around, however we did manage to make it. There was not any information given out unless asked and even then only minor comments and majority not helpful. The chairs on the bus kept falling backwards and wouldn’t sit up right, which was a pain for half the coach. Staff was not bothered about timing at all

bus VIP 24, Krungsiam Tour
★★★★☆
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

Brilliant service. No problems at all. Everything was well organised and the beds were comfy. Even if I found it difficult to sleep, others might not. Would do it again.

★★★☆☆
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.

People were very helpful. It was nice to be met at Surathani by a nice person who helped us find the bus and again at the ferry pier in Ko Sumai who helped us find a hotel. On the train it was difficult to find a place to put my large suitcase and trains should have a receptacle to collect the toilet waste rather than just leave it open on the rail tracks. Thanks

It was all fine. Heard some people talk about cockroaches on the train - didnt see any myself. Toilets are... Well... quite raw. But they dont smell or anything. Train attendant stroked my lower back and bottom after making the bed... quite weird - both male. Everything was More or less on time. Ferry ride smooth.

15 minutes after departure the train stoped. Nobody told us what was going on. After 4 houres waiting we find out that the locomotief left without train en they sent a new locomotief. I would like it if the people working on the train give some more info about what was going on. Also you can order food from a menu sold by people from the railway. But they ask a lot of money for that and you dont get wat you order. They just give everybody the same food. Beter buy food from lokal people who hop on the train with food.

Rail part of trip was fine. Bus was totally disorganised and we ended up with a shuttle speeding to make the boat in time. The bus operators also worked out of cafes where you are STRONGLY encouraged to buy food and drinks. Boat trip was fine.
