How to get from Ranong to Bangkok

By far the easiest way to get from Ranong to Bangkok is by bus. Night buses save you a night in a hotel and bring you to the capital early in the morning so you have the whole day ahead. Technically it is possible to get from Ranong to Chumphon by bus and then switch onto a train from Chumphon to Bangkok, but the only reason to do so is if you are planning a stopover in Chumphon or want to detour to the islands of the Gulf. Otherwise opt for a direct bus from Ranong to Bangkok.

From Ranong to Bangkok by bus

Buses cover the distance between Ranong and Bangkok in approximately eight hours. Niomit Tour has VIP and VIP24 night buses, both leaving Ranong at 8pm and arriving to the Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok, Sai Tai Mai, at 4am. Price difference between VIP and VIP24 tickets is about THB180 (THB530 vs THB710), but it is definitely worth spending some extra baht to get more space. That said, VIPs are very comfortable, too, and besides the seats distribution in a coach you do not find any other difference in service between these two types of buses.

Tip: As with all long haul buses in Thailand, air-conditioning in Niomit 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!

In Bangkok, buses from Ranong arrive to Sai Tai Mai bus terminal which serves all the buses from southern destinations. The bus terminal is very busy even during the early hours and you will easily find where to load yourself with some caffeine.

Note that BMTA buses operate from 5am, so if you are planning to use public transport to get from the Southern Bus Terminal to the city, you will need to while away some time before they start operating. Otherwise use taxis which are widely available.

From Ranong to Bangkok by air

Low-cost airlines are an acceptable alternative to overland travel in Thailand. While regular budget carriers’ airfare still remains considerably higher than bus or train tickets prices, discounted prices are offered during certain periods making air-tickets very competitive.

Nok Air operates two direct flights a day from Ranong to Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok. There is a morning flight at 7.55am and an evening one at 7pm. The flight lasts 1½ hour and ticket prices start from THB1150. Note though, that Ranong airport lies some 22km south, so you will need at least 40 minutes to get there from the city.

Tip: If you have an onward flight from Suvarnabhumi Airport, PGS offers private transfers from Don Mueang Airport to Suvarnabhumi. They have Toyota Camry for 3pax at THB990 and Toyota Commuter van for 9pax at THB1100 which is a great choice if you are travelling in a group of friends or have other passengers to share the expenses. The prices include luggage and tolls, and the whole trip from one airport to the other lasts not more than 1½ hour.

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 4pm. 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 centre and is reachable by blue songthaews.

So much space and comfortable seats so was able to sleep. If you in are in Ranong town head to the choke anan office as the bus starts here and could save you money/time in trying to get to the main bus station

The bus was late but that's no problem. Anyway we arrived earlier in Bangkok. The bus is really comfortable with a clean blanket and pillow. The AC was working well. If you freeze fast, take long clothes with you. You get a water and a small snack. Also you can charge your phone!

Bus VIP 24, ChokeAnan Tour, Apr 2, 2019
We bought a bus leaving at 20h but when we arrived at the bus station they printed a 20:20 ticket for us. The bus is confortable but a 1,87m person like myself cannot stretch totally as the feet support is short. It stops SEVERAL times along the way, which was quite annoying. Good snacks, clean blanket and pillow, nice A/C temperature. Arrival in Bangkok was punctual. No Wi-fi in the bus. Overall It was a decent 5-6h night sleep.

Lovely bus trip. Comfortable seats. Safe driver. No traffic. A longer rest including a free meal. Recommendation: you can enter the bus at the Choke Anan office, so you don't need to wait at the Ranong Bus Station.

I was skeptical. 10 hour trip from Ranong to Bangkok. Didn’t know what kind of bus it would be. More than pleasantly surprised. Big comfy reclining seats with lumbar support, touch screen entertainment system. Water, snacks, neck pillow, blanket, air conditioning, curtains. We stopped for lunch at a travel stop and they provided free yes free buffet lunch. Awesome! I couldn’t be happier with experience. I will definitely use sombat tours and 12goasia again. For realzies!

Molto confortevole il viaggio. Posti molto spaziosi e distanti, personale gentile e a disposizione mettono coperta pulita, cuscino,acqua,biscotti e salviette rinfrescanti. Forse un pochino troppa aria condizionata.

Arrived early and was prompt at stops. Very loud noises in back of bus prevented any sleep for the passengers, other than that, staff is nice and chill. Worth the money I guess.
