Getting from Phuket to Bangkok

How to get to Bangkok from Phuket

The fastest, easiest and most convenient way to get to Bangkok from Phuket is by bus. There are a lot of direct buses heading to the capital any time of the day. We have no idea why choose bus+train journey instead, but if you wish, you can do it, too. You will spend more time and efforts, but – oh, yes – have the benefits of arriving in the centre of the capital (to Hua Lamphong train station) and sleeping in the horizontal position. For some, this may compensate.

From Phuket to Bangkok by bus

Buses from Phuket to Bangkok leave regularly throughout the day from the recently constructed Bus Station 2 Bo-Ko-So Terminal which is located some four km to the north of the Phuket Town’s centre. They take from 13 up to 15 hours to arrive to Bangkok, either to the Southern bus terminal, Sai Tai Mai, which is located on Phutthamonthon Sai Road in Thonburi district on the western side of the Chao Phraya River, or to the Northern bus terminal, Morchit. Check in advance to which one your bus goes. You have a wide choice of 2nd class, express and VIP buses. VIP24 are more expensive but let you travel with much more comfort: there are 3 seats per row which leave you with more space for your legs and elbows. All buses provide snacks, air-conditioning and blankets and make several pit-spots along the route at large gas stations with convenience stores, cafes and toilets. Example fares are THB 664 for the express and THB 1023 for VIP24 (with Phuket Travel). Note that the same terminal in Phuket serves many other destinations, including Suratthani, Krabi or Koh Samui.

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

From Phuket to Bangkok by train

Though there is no railway line anywhere near Phuket, you still can make a combined bus+train journey from Phuket to Bangkok. The Thai southern railway line goes from Bangkok to Suratthani, and the closest railway station to Phuket is the one of Suratthani. It is located in the town of Phun Phin, some 220 km from Phuket. To get there, you will need to make a 4½ hour bus journey, so in most cases this is not an option to consider unless you wish to savour a bit of local life in Suratthani itself. The majority of buses are standard AC ones with prices around THB 230 per person. Book your bus ticket from Phuket to Suratthani here.

Trains from Phun Phin (Suratthani) to Bangkok arrive to Hua Lamphong Station. There is a morning 2nd class AC seats only which is also the fastest one covering the distance between Bangkok and Suratthani in 9 hours (and for THB 808). The rest of the batch are slower (up to 12 hours) and depart in the afternoon and in the evening at 4.40pm, 5.35pm, 6.37pm, 8.35pm, and 9.05pm. Even if slower than buses, trains offer the most comfortable ride, depending on which ticket you book. The top choice is an AC 1st class sleeper (the most convenient of which is #84 and #86 at 9.05pm and 6.37pm (both THB 1539). Second class sleepers are also air-conditioned and provide beds that fold out of your seating upon request or in the evening. These tickets cost from THB 948 to THB 968, and while they may not be as private as 1st class, they are still very comfortable. The fan sleeper carriage works pretty much the same as a normal sleeper but excludes air conditioning and gives you an arguable opportunity to take in countryside smells along the trip. Fan sleepers cost 708 THB per person.

Tip: As Suratthani serves as a base for further travel to the islands of the Gulf, as well as cities of Deep South and Andaman Coast, tickets do sell quickly. If you travel during the high season, consider buying tickets as much in advance as possible.

Note that a combination bus+train journey from Phuket to Bangkok takes longer than a direct bus from the island to the capital (not less than 15 hrs compared to 13 hours), but you can sleep with more comfort while travelling by railway. Both 1st and 2nd class AC carriages give you enough privacy, so a longer journey may proof a better choice at the end of the day.

Have you forgotten anything?

Before you say good-bye to this truly cosmopolitan resort, make sure you have not missed the brilliant opportunity to get acquainted with a bunch of southern islands which are easily accessable from Phuket. Here are some ideas on island hopping from Phuket.

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 are 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.

Blogger report: Tugce Ertan (VIP24 Phuket Travel) 01-Apr-2015 18:30

After a nice holiday in Patong Beach we had to go to Bangkok and so we decided to use the direct bus between Phuket Town and Bangkok. It is a cheap, comfortable and effortless way of getting to Bangkok, plus it means one less hotel night which definitely budget friendly.

How to Get to the Bus Terminal 2 in Phuket

There are three bus terminals in Phuket. First one is old bus terminal off Phang Nga Road which provides minibuses linking Phuket to other major destinations in Thailand. Second one is the new bus terminal on Thepkasattri Road which provides big buses linking Phuket to other major destinations in Thailand and the last one is on Ranong Road (Old Town) which is the local bus station linking Phuket Town to all beaches. Our bus was departing from Bus Terminal 2.

First of all, we needed to reach Phuket Town from Patong. According to your budget you can prefer either the blue songthaews which can be described as big tuk tuks or the easy but expensive taxis. We prefered the songthaew due to our budget and we paid only 50 Baht per person. First we took the blue songthaew (30 Baht) from Patong to Phuket town, and once we were in Phuket Town the driver stopped another songthaew (20 Baht) for us which is going to the bus station. Blue songthaews run every 30 minutes all the way on the beach road in Patong, you can easily catch them but mainly they collect passengers from in front of the police box at northern end of Patong Beach Road. Pink Songthaews, on the other hand, assure transfers between three bus stations but please remember that songthaews work until around 6 pm.

Bus Terminal 2 in Phuket

We arrived at the second bus terminal after a 1 hour trip by two songthaews. When you go inside the terminal there are two short corridors on the left and right hand sides of the entrance which you can buy your tickets or get approvals for your internet reservations and obtain the hard copy of your bus ticket. The terminal has a mini market and some kiosks where you can have something to eat or drink. If you don’t like these options you can try the small local restaurants which are located in the terminal’s garden. We tried Coffee House at the end of the restaurants. They serve a good variation of coffees and snacks. Plus, the only air-conditioned place with a decent wi-fi is this place. You should use the toilet in the terminal for just 3 Bahts since the toilets in the buses are not in very good condition. (Just 3 bahts)

Registering Luggage

We kept our luggage with us until the departure time because we were warned about not to let our luggage unattended in the bus’ trunk. Before getting on the bus, we registered our bags on the small white desk near our platform and then gave them to the trunk. Of course, we watched them until they were put in properly. They attached a tag to our bags on the desk but then never asked us to confirm when we were getting off. 

Bus Trip

Phuket Travel VIP23 bus seats
Phuket Travel VIP23 bus seats

There are mainly two storey buses in Thailand, besides the driver compartment, they have a small number of seats at the lower deck. Most of the seats are on the upper floor. You can get VIP bus tickets or cheaper bus tickets. The difference between a VIP and a normal bus is the number seats. The VIP has around 30 seats whereas the cheaper bus has more than 40. So it means a VIP bus has wider seats with very wide leg space. We bought our tickets 7 hours before the trip on 12go.asia from Phuket Travel Company for 18:30 VIP bus.
Bus departed 2 min early according to universal Iphone time but 6 minutes late according to bus’ time. Anyway, since you should be at the terminal 30 minutes before departure it won’t be a great matter. There was a packaged blanket and a bottle of water placed neatly on every seat. Also, the air conditioner was working before the departure. The blue seats were very big and comfortable with a wide leg space. With this space they are able to recline almost to become a bed. Also there was an adjustable part for the legs which provides a comfortable journey. There are lights and air conditioning at the top of every seat. You can close your air conditioning but the lights weren't working.

Ten minutes after the departure the formally dressed hostess stopped in every seat and asked us where we were going to note them down on her folder. Once this is finished, she brought a basket of snacks from downstairs and gave us a complimentary set of two cakes and a fruit/vegetable juice. There were two types of cakes boxed and stamped in a transparent box, one with banana flavor, the other with some colorful candies on it. We liked them both. The trash of these goodies however, were never collected. After these snacks, the lights are turned off until the break which is odd because it’s just 7 pm. Also there were two flat screens on our deck but they weren't turned on once and there were no electric plugs or USB ports to charge electronic devices.

The trip went smooth but the air conditioning was very cold. First I thought why they gave us wool blankets on 35 degree weather but then I understood. The blankets were freshly washed and felt very clean when the package was removed. They also keep you warm.

After 6 hours road, we took a break for a complimentary meal at 00:30 am in Chumphon. The break was just 20 minutes and the food is traditional Thai food. If you are not fond of Thai cuisine, you can find some other things to eat in the night bazaar at this stop. You should be cautious in that crowded place. The buses are alike, you should memorize or take a picture of the plate of the bus in order not to misplace the bus. Also you should be in a hurry since the break is short for dinner and toilet.

The complimentary meal is served in the dining saloon where you are seated at a table with people you don’t know according to your bus company. They serve traditional Thai plates with chicken, fish and vegetables on every table. They also give you a cup of rice and you turn the table as you wish to take some food from the middle to your plate. The toilets are not very clean, they lack toilet paper so be sure to take your own.
The toilet on the bus was frequently used by the passengers however every time the door was opened a bad smell was upon us. Also the toilet itself didn't seem very appealing to me, I just took a photo.

Arrival

We arrived in Bangkok after 12 hours and the hostess woke us up – You! Bangkok! We took our bags and hit the road again. According to the ticket we should be on the southern bus terminal in Bangkok so we had made a plan to get to our hotel but then we realized that they dropped us on northern bus terminal Mochit. We don’t know if they are going to also southern station but she never asked us which station we were going to. But then again, she didn’t speak English. Maybe you should approve in advance which terminal the bus is going.

Bangkok North Bus Terminal

It was better for us to be dropped in Mochit as it is closer to our hotel, however be aware that people speak very little English, so come prepared to take the necessary public bus to your destination or have your hotel’s address written in Thai. If you are Western, taxi drivers are most likely going to try scamming you by asking a lot of Money. Insist on turning on the taxi meter. Otherwise, you can take a public bus for 15 Bahts to Chatuchak Station and take the sky train from there. Also there are small buffets and Seven Elevens in the terminal where you can get something for breakfast.

Over all, this was a comfortable and smooth journey. It is highly preferable fort his route.

Passenger reviews out of total 9,024 passengers 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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★☆☆ Feb 20, 2017 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
We just used the service from Phuket to Bangkok Southern terminal. Already booked online, which was a good part to prevent yourself for last hour rush and searching ticket office/agent etc. It was around 13 hours journey, which they completed on time. But the sitting and seats of the bus was quite uncomfortable. Unlike Swasdee travels Bus, which we used to travel from Pattaya to Phuket, on which we didnt even felt the tiredness. This bus's sitting was very disappointing, legs were stucking all night, no leg space at all. Would not recommend this traveler if you are planning for a long journey by bus in Thailand.
★★★★★ Feb 17, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus was on time in departure and arrival. Clean and tidy inside. Drop off at Surat Thani is a short walk from train station.
★★☆☆☆ Feb 16, 2017 (bus VIP24, Bus Express) :
What a freezing nightmare! as much as I cannot complain about bus comfort in general, I could not really focus on any advantages of this trip since air conditioning killed everything good about it. What is wrong with you people? what is the sense to turn your bus into refrigerator? I'm glad i had my daughters wool socks which i bought for her winter holidays with me, also all other winter jackets and stuff otherwise I would have turned into ice cube. .. and not that i have something against conditioning, it is a great invention - but please use it wisely - do not turn your passengers into frozen vegetables please!
★★☆☆☆ Feb 16, 2017 (bus VIP24, Bus Express) :
First driver drives like a maniac. He flashes his lights are cars, truck and all vehicles in front of the bus so that they make way for him to speed. He overtakes at corners where there is no visibilties. Seats can only recline 45 degrees. Uncomfrtable///
★★★★★ Feb 15, 2017 (bus Express, Bus Express) :
Very good trip. Speed and comfortable. Air-condition very cold
★★★★★ Feb 15, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus is not in great condition at first sight, but the trip was okay. It's not crowded, air condition works perfectly, the driver is very helpful... Also, there are some guys getting onto the bus a few times on the stopa and selling fruit and stuff.
★★★★★ Feb 11, 2017 (bus VIP24, Phuket Travel) :
Servizio ottimo puntuale
★★★★★ Feb 10, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus left on time, and amazingly arrived at Surat Thani station right on scheduled time. The bus was comfortable, and surprisingly included a restroom. I had scheduled a later train connection because of fear that the bus might be delayed, but I was too conservative in that decision, meaning I had to wait for the train longer than necessary. No complaints at all. Purchasing the ticket was simple and quick, and there was no issue with its electronic delivery to me.
★★★☆☆ Feb 9, 2017 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Standard
★☆☆☆☆ Feb 8, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
12go Asia said the journey would take 3.5 hours, it actuallly took 5.5 hours however there was no traffic jams or breaks down. Also very very rude staff on the coach
★★★☆☆ Feb 5, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Like all drivers in Thailand, the bus driver adopts "race driver" attitude by following the racing line while navigating through the crowded streets. I closed my eyes and try not to pay attention at the road. The bus itself is a bit run down with a strong diesel smell in the cabin early in the trip. Also, despite of the written destination (Suratthani Train Station), i was dropped about 15 minute-walk away from the train station, so the description is a bit misleading. Apart from that, the ticket was available readily at Phuket Bus Terminal and everything went smoothly.
★★★★☆ Feb 4, 2017 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Выехали из пхукета в 18:40 приехали в в бангкок утром в 7:30. Примерно в час ночи была остановка покушать в столовой бесплатно. Правда питание скромное: рис с водичкой и 4 тарелки овощей с мясом на 5 пассажиров за одним столом. Впринципе есть можно. Но лучше взять на вокзале еды с собой перед выездом. Места бронировали в первом ряду на втором этаже, номера сидений 1,2,3,4, отличный панорамный вид и море свободного места перед собой, можно вытянуть ноги. Сидения откидываются в полулежачее положение.

Aside from a generally uncomfortable ride, we were dropped off at Mochit, while our tickets were to Sai Tai. My next bus left from Sai Tai. Not cool.
★☆☆☆☆ Dec 31, 2016 (bus VIP, Phuket Central) :
Dont recommend it
★★☆☆☆ Dec 7, 2016 (bus VIP, Phuket Central) :
Fast but not really comfortable. Music kept playing loud after midnight lunch and the waitress acted so strange that it was scary. There was no information given about what to do after drop off so ended up in a expensive taxi to get to the city.
★★☆☆☆ Dec 3, 2016 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Roof of bus kept making terrible noise for entire journey. It sounded like somebody walking on squeaky floor. We could not sleep. They really need to fix that problem. The rest is bearable for the price.
★★★★★ Nov 26, 2016 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
Smooth booking and great experience with The Air Asia, the plane was new, staff was kind and we landed 15min before schedule. The bags were ready to claim before we even got there. I do recommend 12go Asia as well as Air Asia! :)

Bus was in extreme need of repair, all seats ripped, ceiling molding and parts broken. We only stopped to pick up people so no toilet break and then we were dropped off with our bags and left to walk 2kms in a direction that was just pointed to...not good at all and only just made 1star...just
★★★★☆ Nov 21, 2016 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Another excellent experience! Efficient service (water and snack upon boarding) and timely travel (left on time, arrived early). Very comfortable experience. Unfortunately, there was a rather irritating buzzing sound coming from the top front of the bus. I'm not sure what it was, but it was hard to ignore until I eventually fell asleep. The sound was not heard during my other bus experience, so I think it is a maintenance issue for this particular bus that can be fixed :)
★☆☆☆☆ Nov 14, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
I bought ticket from phuket to surat thani - train station and driver left me 20 km from train station and told me to go with taxi which i paid more than bus ticket and I didn't have other option because I was in hurry

Booking with 12go.asia went very well and all was delivered as booked. The bus trip with Phuket Central (VIP24) was fast and without issues (besides cold and dark, like all buses in Thailand). On request of passengers the loud volume of the radio was put down. Only tip is to provide WIFI on the VIP buses. All in all convenient way to travel.

The bus was on time and got to Suratthani station one hour ahead of schedule. This is because it didn't make the two pit stops as advertised. I had to actually tell the driver to stop the bus to let me go to the toilet. This is unacceptable for a four and a half hour bus journey.
★★★★☆ May 23, 2016 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Great smooth bus ride from Phuket to Bangkok! However, the steward cant speak english, also majority of staff at Phuket Bus terminal 2 (some aren't even trying to help us out).

Way better than going other way - driver not drugged up. The use of outdated uncomfortable busses pisses me off.

★★★☆☆ Mar 30, 2016 (bus VIP24, Phuket Travel) :
Would have been a really positive review as the bus was comfy and the trip seemed to go quick. However, be aware that they play really REALLY loud annoying Thai music at stupid times. It was so loud that I couldn't hear the movie I was playing on my laptop and I had the volume on full with earphones in. It also was visibly annoying the Thai man next to me who was trying to sleep. Stop was at 11pm instead of 1am like people suggested.

I've requested to change the date of my journey and it was relatively easy! The support of 12GoAsia was prompt and extremely helpful - many thanks! I only had a prob paying the date changing fee at 7/11. Good service, bus arrived on time. A bit cold inside though - put on some warm clothes!
★★★☆☆ Mar 14, 2016 (bus VIP24, Phuket Travel) :
Very comfortable and super VIP position on seat number 1 with lots of space for my legs and my small backpack! But the entire trip has been like travelling in a freezer cell, had to wear jumper, jacket with hood plus the blanket they give you. Even closing all the A/C around me it was still windy!! Water was provided but I tried to not drink too much to avoid the dangerous walk to the toilet while the bus was moving. The road is very bumpy but I managed to sleep every 1h/45 minutes or so. I wish the staff could speak English because it was very hard for me to be understood when asking for information. I couldn't get where I was most of the time, if it was my stop or not, if it was the FINAL stop or not, or how long was the dinner break at the market. I always had to watch out. They were playing music when you need to be awake, all in Thai and repetitive, but not a major concern. The bus didn't seem to respect the schedule as in my case it arrived to Bangkok at least 1.5 hour earlier. It was supposed to arrive at 7.20 but at 7.20 I was already at the airport!! Oh well!!!
★★★★☆ Mar 9, 2016 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Good service. comfy bus. it does what it says on the packet. they get you from A to B at the time agreed. there is a stop at midnight for a snack (some sad person delayed the bus but then nobody said how long we had). happy with the service and would use again.

★★★★☆ Feb 27, 2016 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Overall not a bad way to travel. Nice lunch and breakfast muffin and water are provided. Bus is indeed full of mosquitoes active at dawn and dusk.
★★☆☆☆ Feb 23, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Random stops to pick up or drop off other travelers. Sometimes there would be two or three to drop off one person EXACTLY where they wanted to be dropped of. Bus was 50 minutes late. Driving was inconsistent (speed wise). We took a detour to pick up more people. Not sure if it was planned or not. We should have read the former reviews. Not a big deal if you're not overly concerned about +1 hour or so. We missed a train by about 2 minutes because of that though. And I mean 5 hours for what should be a 2 and a half hour drive is frustrating (they quote 4 hours)
★★★★☆ Feb 19, 2016 (bus VIP24, Phuket Travel) :

★★★☆☆ Feb 10, 2016 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Bus was bug ridden, mosquitos ants on the floor,, was bitten a few times before reaching the destination. Apart from that the journey would have been ok as did the 18:30 coach and slept until the morning. Apart from half way thorough they put all the lights on and play music to wake up to spend money at a food court type place at like 1am.

It almost killed me - it's really cheap and this is why we use it - I think any bus won't make 12 hours trip comfortable :) - and it was kinda called But everything is good and for this price it was ok
★★★★☆ Nov 29, 2015 (bus VIP24, Phuket Travel) :
Very comfortable journey. Dinner was not really good, but it was free so we can't complain. The bus stops in Mochit first, so if you want to get off in Southern bus terminal Bangkok you should add 45 min/1 hour to the expected arrival time. All in all, a good and value for money experience.

comfy bus with reclining seats, nice view from the upper level, but no conductor / bus attendants, so makes me a bit worries when we stop for late night dinner that somehow i could be left by the bus without anyone trying to look for me
★★☆☆☆ Oct 27, 2015 (bus VIP24, Phuket Travel) :
Worst bus trip I ever had. Let's start from the positive: A lot of space in every seat, clean seats and bus in general. A bottle of water and cake snaks offered. BUT: A horrible driving (sudden breaks, for example) and (maybe) too small wheels for such a big bus mad the bus move like hell on the road. It was very very unconfortable and we couldn't rest at all during the whole night. Moreover, music was very loud, until they turned it off during sleeping time. The individual lights were not working so if you wanted to read it was not possible. The stops in Bangkok were confusing, the driver did not speak English and so he couldn't tell us where we were. We got off in the northern terminal instead of in southern terminal. A hell of a trip.
★★★★☆ Oct 26, 2015 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Punctual. Comfortable. My only request would be to provide charging points
★★★★★ Oct 22, 2015 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Arrived on time, very helpful staff, would recommend!
★★★★☆ Sep 26, 2015 (bus VIP24, Phuket Travel) :
The bus had engine coolant issues so we had to stop on the side of the road, the next two vip buses picked up our passengers. The driving was fine, but the road that was bumpy. Big reclining seats are worth it. Food not included, was 40 baht for a rice dish. Taxi from Bangkok bus station to my hotel was 250 baht. Patong beach to bus station was 500!
★★★★☆ Sep 16, 2015 (bus Express, Phuket Travel) :
Very comfortable 12 hour ride...no complaints and would definitely do it again!
