HI VT ,
Verry soon we are going to BK.I need more actualy information aboute night train from Bangkok to Surat Thani.How far is the train station from Khao San road? How much is the combo ticket to Koh Samui sleeper class?Thank you in advance!
I did by bus, only one ticket for bus+boat
Trainstation is 6 to 7 km from Khao San by taxi depending on trafic arround 100 Baht, by bus go to Phra Atit rd. (at the river and take bus #53 north (!) 6,50 Baht, the price for train, bus and boat should be arround 700 and 1000 Baht (ac or non ac, upper or lower berth...) travel agents might ad up to 100 Baht.
I did Samui to Bangkok a year ago and as there were four of us we negotiated down to 525 baht per person for the boat/bus/train, but it might be easier to negotiate in Samui than on KSR.
The bus to Hualamphoong Railway station is no.53 at Phra Atit Road, just a distance about 5 min walk from Khao San Road. The journey takes about 30min to 1 hr, depand on the traffic. The train depart BKK for Surat Thani 12 times per day. The earliest one 8.05 arrived 16.45. The best choice is the 18.30 and reach next day 6.23 am. The second class fare is about 250 Aircon, 150 Bht for upper and lower 240 Bht. sleeper. If you need to have more infor check www.thairailticket.com
