#How to get from Bangkok to Phuket

The easiest way to get to Phuket from Bangkok is to fly. Flying takes just under an hour and a half and with numerous flights from both Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports you are never short of choices. It is almost always possible to grab an air ticket for THB1000-THB2000. The overland distance between Bangkok and Phuket is around 850 km. Thanks to the bridge which links the mainland to the island, you can reach Phuket from Bangkok directly by bus. It does take a while – between 12 and 14 hours – but remains a prime choice for budget-conscious travellers with ticket prices starting from THB600. Though there is no railway station in Phuket, combination train-and-bus journeys via Suratthani are also an option to consider, especially for rail travel buffs, but expect the total travel time to be quite long – normally not less than 16 hours.

From Bangkok to Phuket by bus

Buses from Bangkok to Phuket leave from the Southern bus terminal, Sai Tai Mai. It is located on Phutthamonthon Sai Road in Thonburi district on the western side of the Chao Phraya River and is easily accessible by taxi. The route is served by a number of companies, including Phuket Travel and Bus Express. You can choose between express buses (THB660-THB690) and plusher VIP24 ones (THB1000). In VIP24 there are 3 seats per row, which means more space for your legs and elbows. All buses provide snacks, air-conditioning and blankets and make several pit stops along the route at large gas stations with convenience stores, cafes and toilets. There are early morning buses at 6.30am and 6.40am and a wide choice of afternoon and evening departures from 2.30pm to 9.30pm. All of them cover the distance between Bangkok and Phuket in about 13 hours. There are buses from the Northern bus terminal in Bangkok, Morchit, too.

Buses from Bangkok arrive to the recently constructed Bus Station 2 Bo-Ko-So Terminal which is located some four km to the north of the centre in Phuket Town. The terminal also serves buses from/to many of the Thai southern cities.

Tip: During the peak season it is highly recommended to book tickets in advance.

From Bangkok to Phuket by train

There are no direct trains from Bangkok to Phuket, the nearest transfer point being Suratthani. Trains from Bangkok to Suratthani leave from Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok, easily accessible from the MRT subway. By far the most convenient train is the night one #85 departing at 7.30pm and arriving in Suratthani at 7.10am, but you have many other options, as well. You can choose the 1st or the 2nd class sleeper, both of which are air-conditioned and provide enough privacy and comfort for an overnight journey. The price is approximately THB1550 and THB1000 correspondingly.

Suratthani train station is located in the town of Phun Phin, some 15 km away. From there, buses leave regularly both for Suratthani and other southern destinations, including Phuket. You can plan your combination journey by yourself or opt for a train+bus joint ticket. If you book a joint train+bus ticket from Bangkok to Phuket, you can catch a 7.45am standard air-con Phantip Travel bus to Phuket (THB 250, almost 4 hrs).

Note that a combination train+bus journey from Bangkok to Phuket takes longer than a direct bus from the Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok (15½ hrs compared to 13 hours), but you can sleep with more comfort while travelling by railway. Both 1st (THB1550) and 2nd class (THB1000) AC carts give you enough privacy, so a longer journey may proof a better choice at the end of the day.

Why go to Phuket

Love it or hate it: the Pearl of the Andaman is too developed, too commercialized, too trendy and, well, sometimes – too expensive. Yet its sandy beaches, fashionable spas, outstanding diving sites and high-class dining venues continue to lure hordes of tourists from literally every corner of the world. There are endless opportunities for going on an adventure – from snorkelling or surfing to yachting and kayaking, and if you wish to taste the real cosmopolitan flavour of the island, spend a bit of time exploring streets of Phuket Town clogged with coffee shops and art galleries, hip affordable guesthouses and stately Sino-Portuguese mansions. Be ready to pay more for food, lodging and transport than in any other Thai resort city or island, relax and just enjoy your experience.

Being the largest island in Thailand, Phuket sometimes does not feel as an island at all: even getting there from the mainland does not require any sea travel. The 700m Saphan Thepkasattri linked the northernmost tip of Phuket to Phang Nga Province on the mainland in 2011. It runs parallel to a smaller Saphan Sarasin which was built in 1967 to replace the ferry connection with the island and now serves as a pedestrian bridge.

Island hopping from Phuket

Though Phuket sometimes lacks that typical island atmosphere, it still provides a good chance to taste some of the other ‘real’ islands. Just choose your destination and start your island hopping.

From Phuket to Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao

Lomprayah offers combined bus+ high-speed ferry service from Phuket to the islands of the Gulf. The whole journey takes 6½ hrs to Koh Samui, 7½ hrs to Koh Phangan and 8¾ hrs to Koh Tao.

From Phuket to Koh Phi-Phi

During the peak season there is between 5 and 6 ferries a day linking Phuket to the pristine island of Phi Phi. Though it gets more and more developed nowadays, the scenery fortunately remains just breath-taking.

From Phuket to Koh Lanta, the Trang islands and Koh Lipe

Ferries going from Phuket to Koh Lanta, the Trang islands and Koh Lipe connect through Koh Phi-Phi. Get ready to jump from one boat to another which is sometimes a bit of a nervous experience.

**Tip: If your are prone to seasickness, get the necessary medicine at hand.

Want something different? Visit Phang Nga and Khao Lak

Lush jungles and impressive karst formations of the mainland and spectacular islands dotting pristine sea waters, secret caves and beautiful beaches without that excessive glamour of Phuket but with enough facilities to feel comfortable during your holiday are awaiting you in Phang Nga province. If you want fewer people on the beach, head to Khao Lak, which also serves as a great base for further inland explorations.

Lignite bus company operates buses both to Phang Nga Town and Khao Lak from the Southern bus terminal in Bangkok. There are night Express, VIP and VIP24 buses to Phang Nga – all departing around 7pm; tickets cost from THB600 to THB970 depending on the type of the bus you choose. Note that the express bus of Lignite at 6.40pm goes directly to Phang Nga and does not call to Khao Lak. For Khao Lak use the VIP and VIP24 which leave at 7.05pm. Travel time is about 10¼ hours.

You can also get to Khao Lak directly from Phuket Airport. PGS company offers a Toyota Camry for 3 pax at THB1920 from Phuket Airport to Khao Lak. Transit time is about two hours and the rate is all-inclusive.

Getting around in Phuket

Phuket taxis are notorious for their hefty rates. The public transport is limited and has a form of huge trucks. They cruise between Phuket Town and the beaches which is terribly inconvenient as in most cases you need to connect through Phuket Town to go from one beach to another, and the journey eventually takes you hours.

Motorbikes and Scooters are a good way to get around. The majority of the rental shops will require your passport which they keep until you bring the rented vehicle back. Cases when the rental shops would insist on reimbursing ‘damage’ to their scooters are not unheard of; so check carefully what you rent and make photos of any scratches you find before you commit. The daily rate for a scooter is about THB200-THB300. There are also bigger bikes available for rent.

Renting a car is a good option which gives you both freedom and safety. A car can usually be hired for around THB1200 per day, but in low season rates sometimes fall below THB800. Cheap car rental companies can be found in Thanon Rasada. As a rule, local companies offer better rates, but you can sometimes find online promotions when booking with global operators.

Passenger reviews out of total 61,091 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.

★☆☆☆☆
Squalid, filthy and CRAWLING with cockroaches (stopped counting after 20 inside the compartment with us, crawling up the walls, floor and out of the sink (even after stopping it up with tissue and spraying DEET everywhere). How on earth Thai Railways get away with charging considerably more than 2nd for these falling apart and stinking carriages, I don't know. How can these be sold as first class? The area underneath the lower berth was literally scurrying with 'roaches. The carriage looked like it had never been cleaned and stunk, triggering coughing and stuffy noses. Revolting and disgusting and we did not sleep a wink.

The bus is comfortable. At first we got a bus with AC problem and they change the bus. The leg room is better than low budget airlines, and can incline and has a place for our feet, too! The snacks isn't great, but for the price, getting snacks, water bottle, and juice is already great. They provide us with blanket. The staff at the bus can't speak English but at the counter they do.

Overall it was a comfortable journey; however, the seat was broken and kept sliding out underneath me into the bed position, which was a slight annoyance. Also, there is very limited space for baggage if you have a large backpack. I noticed in first class they had large luggage racks in the aisle. It seems you only get practicality if you pay more money. Unfortunately, I had to share my bed with my luggage, which was less than cozy. Otherwise, the staff was very attentive and polite.

Would not recommend.

Staff didnt speak english, so i didnt know when there would be a break or what's going on. There was a meal at the mid break, but nobody told me. I was lucky enough to walk inside and got seated at a table with other passengers. Bus was quite comfortable and driver was nice. At least he could tell me how long the break will be. No fresh water in the bus toilet!

Absolutely loved travelling on the overnight train, we had the first class carriage and it was very comfortable. Highly recommend doing this instead of losing a day on travelling! We chose the longer route to Koh Tao via Suratthani instead of Chumphon as it allows us to get a decent night's rest.

I think our 1st class sleeper carriage was one of the oldest - it was very tired and fairly worn. The bed linen was clean and fine, but both our neighbours in the next compartment and we had small cockroaches visiting us in the night! Staff were friendly and 'encouraged' us strongly to buy dinner and breakfast. We had brought our own things for dinner but did order breakfast, which was a perfectly adequate tray with coffee or tea. It was a good trip but the oldest carriages really need to be seriously overhauled and much better cleaned/maintained.

All the previous reviews said the bus drivers drive recklessly fast. We did not have that experience at all. The VIP ticket was totally worth it for the leg room and super sized seats. The ride was safe and comfortable and the stewardess spoke enough English to get by.

Bus was easy to find, staff were polite and helpful although spoke very little English. Toilet onboard was okay but had no soap. Included blanket, pillow, snack and water were very basic but a pleasant surprise. The only real problem was the uncomfortable seating. Giant Ibis in Cambodia and most sleeper buses in Vietnam have seats where you can lie down properly, but this bus only had standard reclining seats, which are very difficult to sleep on and not so good for a 12 hour overnight trip.

Clean bedding, lower berth was really big but upper berth quite a bit smaller. Slept ok but lights were kept on all night. Offered tea the night before and received it in the morning but was way over priced- 120 baht for two teas! Arrived 15 min late.

Cannot fault the service from 12go easy booking and easy pick up. The service charge is a lot but you're paying for the convenience. However the journey itself was a nightmare, the carriage broke down and we had to get off at 2am and all that they had for us to get on was a 3rd class bench car. We arrived 2 hours late. Not the pleasant journey we had hoped for but we were given a refund.

Misleading when booking online, trip appeared to include ferry and bus ticket from Surat Thani to koh Tao, but on arrival this was not the case and we had to pay an additional amount. Travel time was also misleading .

Sleeping on the bottom bunk was great, but the top bunk was very unstable and noisy! The train arrived over an hour behind schedule. Bring food for breakfast as the breakfast onboard is very underwhelming! But we arrived safe and sound!

The train arrived in time and we didn’t lost time, but it was very loud and the air conditioner was too effective, the train was to cold the hole night. The seatace was too small to sleep and the stuardesses woke us up at 05:30 with bright light. If we have to decide again we would take the sleeping train. But we would go by train again because it is a nice experience.

We were over an hour late getting to Phuket but Thai lion Air is the way to go. The plane was new with individual monitors with updated movies and TV shows. Staff were courteous and pleasant. We’ve traveled budget airlines in Asia and this one is great. I will be booking with Thai Lion Air for future travels.

Bus and ride was ok, i guess the snack they give (a super small muffin) could be a little biger and also I think ne needs a trash bin inside the bus.

Pretty comfortable ride down. Was late by just 30 minutes. Get pretty cold overnight though so bring something warm. They give you one light blanket.
