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.

Samui Crystal Bay

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 57,192 passengers 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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

The 12go office staff were extremely kind and helpful. They answered every question with ease with confidence and handed us our physical train tickets directly. And when I didn't print my itinerary for the ferry transfer portion of my trip to Koh Samui, they did not hesitate to print it for me. Thank you 12go office team!!! As for the 12 hour train from Hua Lamphong to Suratthani station, my sister and I were heavily pleased by the convenience of almost everything! Even though we got the 2nd class sleeper, things were smooth, clean, and organized. When it was getting late, the staff members helped change our seats into beds. Once we had that, both the upper and lower beds had curtains! There were also two small sinks and toilets at the back of the car for passengers. And beside our beds there were four electrical outlets of which we could use to charge our phones! The trains were clean, comfortable, and extremely convenient. As you can tell I had a very positive experience with 12go and will use them again on my next trip. Thank you for the excellent service!
★★★★☆ Jan 10, 2018 (bus VIP, Sombat Tour) :
Bus is clean and comfortable, side dishes offered for free by coach is very pleasant surprise. Bus stops near ferry, and travels on ferry too so you'll grab your big luggage only when arrived at Samui which is good. Ferry goes directly to Nathon pier. Coach don't speak English but I didn't found any problems because of that. The only minus I found is "Southern bus stop" in Bangkok - it's very far away from center, hard to reach and neighborhood of location is bad, will try something else next time because of that, but in all other aspects this trip is 5-star
★★★★★ Jan 9, 2018 (train #85.1 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Jan 8, 2018 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
A relaxing and funny journey, I could even stretch my limbs on the bed (I am 182 cm), which I didn't expect! But: the air conditioning was set so cold that I had to put on my whole clothes on me! Thanks God, I didn't catch a cold that night, but I was damn near... Be prepared for that if you chose a conditioned wagon! And when I asked the attendant, if it was possible to reduce the AC intensity, he just gave me an extra blanket. Nice of him, though.

Great company to deal with.
★★★★☆ Jan 7, 2018 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
My partner and myself booked first class tickets on the overnight train from Hua Lamphong to Surratthani and it was a pleasant ride. We managed to get some sleep and it nice to have our own private cabin on the train. To some people first class should include many things and I expect many to complain about first inclusions but my partner and myself were happy with everything. It's all about adaptation and gratitude instead of always looking for unnecessary luxuries. There is really only one issue and that would be the toilet. A lot of westerners over-exaggerated the toilets uncleanliness but it wasn't that bad at all. Sure it was smelly but it still worked and was somewhat clean and if it really smelt that bad just hold your breath and bring antiseptic hand wash and you'll be fine. Overall a pleasant ride and would do it again.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 7, 2018 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Old train. Light switch broken. Not possible to regulate the A/C. The train was delayed for over one hour, what made us lose the ferry we had next.
★★★★★ Jan 7, 2018 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Had a pretty good sleep on the train.
★★★★☆ Jan 6, 2018 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Bus was comfy but crowded . The ferry boat was very good but not many seats left and some people put bags on seats then sat upstairs! It would be nice if the restaurant could serve more healthy snacks as the bus journey was very long withou a stop. The staff were quite friendly.
★★★★☆ Jan 6, 2018 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Bed was alright, but the train is very noisy. Food was bad and we got served breakfast 5 minutes before we was at our end station.. but it did the job.
★★★☆☆ Jan 6, 2018 (train #83 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
We booked two first class overnight tickets. Train is quite old and rickety. We were supposed to be on an express train but it must have stopped ten times before actually leaving the city. We were told a meal would be included, but were charged when we ordered. BTW Hua Lamphing station is filthy!!

Reception staff were very helpful and the bus left on time, however the boat ride was very bumpy, most of the passengers had sea sickness but the staff on the boat took care of us and gave us plastic bags and menthol oil to ease the sea sick.

★★★★☆ Jan 1, 2018 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Everything ran very smoothly. Train was on time. Bathrooms clean. Staff accomodating. Beds set up & taken down efficiently. Dinner food good (much better than anything found on a plane or train in U.S.). Everyone was quiet during sleeping hours - no loud or obnoxious partiers into the night.???? Downside - my reading light not working in upper berth & almost no storage space to accommodate luggage. ???? Pack lightly!

I love 12Go because it's so hassle free. I've used their services for the second time this year. Just pick up your ticket and get on the train. Extremely helpful and fast to respond via email. All in all, it's like a reliable personal assistant who takes care of your transportation needs.

★★★☆☆ Dec 27, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Cramped bus but I could handle that. However, the ferry was incredibly overbooked, so when the storm started, those of us outside with our luggage being soaked to the bone weren't allowed inside.

★★★☆☆ Dec 25, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
The flight to Suratthani Airport, bus transfer to the pier, and the boat trip to Koh Samui were all fine with no problems with our booking for myself and three teenage children. However the transfer from the dock in Koh Samui to our accommodation was not so good. The driver did not know the address of our accommodation, even though I had sent the address details to 12Go a couple of days beforehand and received a confirmation email that the details would be sent through to the operator. I did not have the address on hand and no wi-fi to check it on my phone or laptop, however I'm sure the driver would have been able to do this. We were dropped off on the main road with vague directions on where to go which were completely wrong. We asked for directions from a local and started walking, with our 6 suitcases, however those directions were incorrect. Eventually we found a hotel who rang our acccommodation proprietor who came to pick us up. Please pass on these comments to the transfer operator, that even if our accommodation was not a main hotel, they still should have been able to find it.

12Go Asia give a fantastic service. Totally efficient and with a smile. I recommend them unreservedly.
★★☆☆☆ Dec 15, 2017 (bus Express, Krungsiam Tour) :
All the way the water dripped above my head from the AC. The staff doesn’t speak well English so they didn’t allow me to change seats. When I buying a ticket it’s written that I have one meal but no one has given us. Also, when changing the bus, nobody gave the correct instructions. Very bad experience.
