Surat Thani to Bangkok by Bus or Flight:

As Surat Thani train station is located to the south of all the ports, if you are travelling from the islands around Koh Samui to Bangkok, you are often better off taking a bus from the port directly to Bangkok, rather than taking a bus south to the train station.

You can buy combination ferry and bus tickets from Koh Samui and Koh Phangan to Bangkok (often much cheaper than taking a ferry, bus then train).

Taking a flight from Surat Thani Airport (URT) is also much cheaper than flying from Koh Samui directly to Bangkok.

You can buy tickets for flights from URT to Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) or Don Muang Airport (DMK) with fares comparable, or sometimes cheaper than train tickets (if you book well in advance).

Seats / Berths on Train number 86

The reclining seats in 2nd class seat carriages are much more comfortable and the coaches are less crowded and quieter the 3rd class

2nd class seats2nd class seats

For a decent nights rest, the 2nd class sleepers are the best choice.

If you have a choice, book the lower berths as they are much wider and much more comfortable than the upper berths (they also sell out first).

On this service they are all air-conditioned coaches, so bring something warm to wear as they can be quite cold at times.
