Bus VIP 24, Krungsiam Tour, Mar 25, 2020
Заказывали билеты на группу из 7 человек с трансфером от отеля на Самуи до Бангкока. Так как билетов на обратный путь на руках не было, волновались чтобы про нас не забыли, но в назначенное время на ресепшен отеля перезвонили и предупредили о небольшой задержке с просьбой ожидать. Через 30-40 минут приехал автобус и далее мы поехали по маршруту, билеты водитель привез с собой. На автовокзале действительно пришлось ожидать рейса часа полтора, как многие пишут. Но последовав примеру местных мы устроили мини пикник на газоне и на фоне красивого заката время пролетело незаметно. Не смотря на отличную организацию, по понятным причинам путь этот достаточно труден физически.

Pick up from the hotel in Samui was as per schedule. But the journey from donsak pier to bangkok took more than 15 hrs which was bit boring.

Nous sommes arrivés à l'heure pour l'embarquement et malgré que nous ayons réservé les billets, il n'y avait pas assez de place dans le bateau au moment d'embarquer !!! Il a donc fallu attendre 1 heure qu'un autre bateau vienne nous chercher , avec d'autres passagers . Donc, 1 heure à attendre et 1 heure de retard du coup sur notre taxi de réservé à K

Everything nice, pick up from the hotel smooth, sunset ferry ride nice. They give you a bottle of water and a meal based on rice and chicken, which is nice. Night bus ride was comfy, bus seats are ok and you get a little pillow and blanket. There is also USB port to charge your phone. The driver was very and kind. We arrived to Bangkok almost one hour earlier then scheduled.

Very easy cheap way to travel from Samui back to Bk. As other comments already said... When they drop you at hotel at destination, it is only a few hundred meters to the metro into town.
