Skip the overnight bus(vip) and go with overnight train (2nd class) instead if available. Better and smoother ride, and you actually lie flat on your own single size bed with privacy curtain that you can really sleep on. Both have comparable times

Not much information about the trip and the very frequent bus changes. No one speaks English and no signs or information available. If not for the kind travellers on the trip, I would be very lost.

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.
