How to get from Bangkok to Ranong

From Bangkok to Ranong by bus

The main bus terminal in Bangkok for all southbound trips is the Southern Bus Terminal, also known as Sai Tai Mai. It is located on the Western banks of Chao Phraya River and is best reached by taxi. Travel time from Bangkok to Ranong is from eight to 9 hours which makes a night bus the most convenient option as it saves your daytime and some baht otherwise spent on a hotel room.

Naomi Tour operates Express, VIP and VIP24 buses from Bangkok to Ranong, all departing at 9 pm and reaching the destination between 4.50am and 5.30am. VIP and VIP24 tickets include a light meal during the journey, while with an Express you have only snacks which are actually of minor importance – unless you are a night-eating type. Tickets cost THB460/550/710 for an Express, VIP and VIP24 bus correspondingly. If you have an extra baht, it is always wise to opt for a VIP24 to have more leg and elbow space. Besides, there have been reports that express buses make too many stops on their way to Ranong, picking up passengers and cargo with cabin lights going on every time the bus stops. If you do not mind your journey last longer than expected than an express is also ok.

Tip: As with all long-haul buses in Thailand, air-conditioning in Naomi Tour buses is an issue: it may get freezing cold on board, so have some warm clothes at hand – the blanket you will be given is not always enough!

From Bangkok to Ranong by air

Even if you are the most determined overland traveler, it sometimes pays to consider a flight, too. Several low-cost airlines in Thailand offer tickets at discounted prices during certain periods, so check if you can catch a great deal.

Nok Air operates two direct flights to Ranong from Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok. There is a morning flight at 6 am and an afternoon one at 5.05pm. The flight lasts 1 hour and 25 minutes and ticket prices start from THB1150 (lower during promotional periods). Note though, that Ranong airport lies some 22km south, so you will need at least 40 minutes to get to the city from there.

Ranong Connections

Rung Kit company operates Express buses from Ranong to Phuket. They reach the island in 5½ hours and cost about THB300. There are departures at 6.30am, 9.30am, and 4 pm. Please note that with the last departure you reach Phuket bus terminal by 9.30pm, so it is advisable to book your accommodation in Phuket in advance or opt for any guesthouse in Phuket Town rather than heading immediately to the beaches.

Other destinations from Ranong include Suratthani, Krabi, Phang Nga, Nakhon Si Thammarat, and Hat Yai. Tickets are easily bought right on the spot at Ranong bus terminal which is just one km from the city center and is reachable by blue songthaews.

Koh Phayam

All those stereotypes related to a paradise island are true for Koh Phayam. This little gem of an island has long sandy beaches, crystal clear blue seas, old-school bungalows and an air of a perfect island hideaway which becomes a rare bird nowadays. Though Koh Phayam is the main tourist destination in Ranong province, the island never feels overcrowded and chances that you will find a fair stretch of the beach just for yourself are high. Narrow island roads are car-free, and electricity round the clock is a privilege of a couple of bigger resorts. That said, many accommodations offer Internet, so you will not feel too isolated from the rest of the world if you need it in your smartphone.

Unspoiled beaches are undoubtedly the main attraction of Koh Phayam, but do not underestimate its hilly interior covered with jungle where a variety of short route for hiking attract those who get tired with a postcard-perfect sea picture of Koh Phayam. Koh Phayam lies 35km from the mainland, so estimate that your trip there will take from ¾ hrs by speedboat to two hours by ordinary ferry. Boat service is offered all year round, but the majority of smaller bungalows close for the low season from April to October.

Boarding the bus was confusing. I couldn't find the office booth to get my ticket. Otherwise everything was good.

No real problems everything was great. Some things a little unclear but it worked out great. Wasn’t as uncomfortable as I expected but I didn’t manage to sleep.

When we got to the bus, the lady couldn't decide where we could sit. She changed our seats three times.. I have no idea why since the bus was quite empty. The bus left 40 minutes late.

Bus VIP, Niomit Tour, Jan 3, 2020
The bus was on time and the staff is quite nice but the bus was very old and in bad condition so I rate only 2 stars.

Bus VIP 24, Niomit Tour, Jan 2, 2020
Trip to Ranong from Bangkok was very smooth, comfortable seat, little snack, juice and water, the only flaw that almost ruined it was a water leak it started raining about halfway there and I woke up cause I got rained on. Luckily the bus wasn't full so I switched seat. Thank you for bringing me safe and sound to destination.

The bus itself was good. Very comfortable seats, a lot of space. Bus left on a time and arrived earlier than expected. The AC was too cold during the night. The staff speaks zero english so it was difficult to communicate and not very pleasant. We also missed the midnight snack on the way because they didnt tell us or show us where to go and what to do to get it. Bus was a bit loudy.

Bus VIP 24, ChokeAnan Tour, Dec 12, 2019
Bus was on time, we got water and a small snack, as well as a blanket and pillow. Bus had charging points. Stops a few times through the night (maybe 5) at rest stops, we arrived in Ranong at about 5:30am. 5 stars as far as a night bus goes, I even managed to catch a few hours sleep and I'm 6'4 so this should speak to its relative comfort.

Unfriendly crew, no service on board, defunct safety belts, defunct toilet, busdriver smoking in the cabin, too many stops, noisily talking crew prevented us from sleeping. No free meal. The only positive: We arrived safely after all and in time. Don't book at Newmits Tours, others offer better service

Bus VIP 24, ChokeAnan Tour, Nov 13, 2019
The seat in front of me was broken and it went back so far that it actually touched my legs on my seat. It was very uncomfortable and I was the last row on the bus and the last row seat does not go all the way back. The lock on the bathroom door did not work and someone got trapped in there for about 20 minutes
PB
Bus VIP 24, ChokeAnan Tour, Nov 6, 2019
The good: easy to collect ticket, bus left on time, arrived early, good driving. The bad: we were given the seats at the back of the bus, which did not recline fully because of the back wall. The seats were also broken so the leg rest did not work and they were over the engine so it was uncomfortably hot and noisy. There were 7 stops along the way and the lights came up for all of them making getting any sleep difficult. attendant was surly and unpleasant.no mid point meal provided but we were given a package snack, juice box and a small water at the beginning.
