On time, good driver, good car. Pick up at the airport between arrivals gates 3 and 4 opposit the airport information desk. You will find your name on a paper with lots of other names; hanging there. On top the sign of the Taxi company.

We couldn’t take the bus from Don Sak to Suratthani, because it was overbooked… no one could really help us and they basically just left us waiting for more than an hour to catch a different bus…
As we arrived in Surratthani everything went smooth.
But the 2am stop at a cockroach-restaurant wasn’t needed.
Make sure to grab enough cheese sandwiches before the ride :)))

Everything was great. Just a place to rest and eat is terrible. I would rather stop at a gas station next to 7/11 and Amazon than at a terrible roadside cafe with cockroaches.

All is well! We took a bus to Bangkok. First you are escorted to the ferry, when they see that you are from Pantip. As soon as you get off the ferry, you will be met and told where and what time the bus will pick you up. The bus will take you to Suratani, where you wait and change to a bus to Bangkok. As already written, the bus is very blowing conditioners - take a jacket. You can get a blanket. The bus is fine. The seats are not very comfortable, but that's how it is. We arrived in Bangkok at 5 am.

Все хорошо! довезли до Бангкока на автобусе. Сначала вас проводят на паром, когда увидят что вы от фирмы Пантип. Как только выходите с парома, вас встретят и скажут - где и во сколько заберет автобус. Автобус везет вас до города Суратани - там вы ждете и пересаживаетесь на автобус на Бангкок. Как уже писалось, в автобусе очень дуют кондишины - берите кофты. Дают правда покрывало. Автобус нормальный. Сиденья не очень удобные но то такое. Приехали в Бангкок в 5 утра.

ocean was stormy, all the passengers felt sick after it
Ferry VIP, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Dec 5, 2022
As a way to get from point to point it is tolerable. But do not look at the beautiful names VIP and so on. It's just an old bus with air conditioning always blowing through all the cracks and it's so cold that everyone hides with their heads under the plaid (both locals and Thais). This is my second trip. The first time we sat in the second row and other than the cold felt no discomfort. But this time we were on the last row and it's not so rosy. The backs of the seats on the last row are not fully reclined, and when it rained water was pouring down on me from the ceiling from all the cracks. I would advise taking a duct tape in advance and taping the air conditioner if you don't want angina. And at the change do not expect anyone to help you, you will run yourself and look where you next (although my first trip was responsible for trying to help at the change in order to get tickets and pointed in the direction.) To summarize. As a means of getting from point A to point B is fine. We weren't in a hurry, but the bus was an hour late to Bangkok. As some sort of comfortable bus I think not.

Как способ добраться от точки в точку это терпимо. Но не смотрите на красивые названия ВИП и тд. Это просто старенький автобус в котором всегда дует со всех щелей кондиционер и холодно настолько что все прячутся с головой под плед (и местные и тайцы). Это моя вторая поездка. В первой мы сидели во втором ряду и кроме холода дискомфорта не ощущалось. Но в этот раз мы были на последнем ряду и это уже не так радужно. Спинки сиденьев на последнем ряду не раскладываются полностью, а когда шел дождь на меня лилась вода с потолка со всех щелей. Я бы посоветовал брать скотч заранее и заклеивать кондиционер если не хотите ангину. И на пересадках не ждите что вам кто-то поможет, будете бегать сами и искать куда вам дальше (хотя в моей первой поездке был ответственный который старался помочь на пересадках получить билеты и указывал направление). Подитожу. Как средство добраться из точки А в точку Б это нормально. Мы не спешили, но автобус опоздал на час до Бангкока. Как какой-то комфортабельный автобус думаю что нет.
