The most convenient way to go to Koh Samui is with the night train and by purchasing a “combination ticket” which includes:

Train ticket
Bus transfer from Surat Thani railway station to ferry pier
Express boat ticket

At Bangkok railway station (Hua Lamphong) you will find a color marked ticket counter on the left side of the counters. There you can buy the combined tickets. You can choose your mode of transportation – 1st or 2nd class, seat or sleeper (recommended) and Ac or fan.

Price for a combined ticket is app. 800 Baht for 2nd class and app. 1200 Baht for 1st class.

You also can buy just the train ticket if you prefer to go by ferry to Koh Samui. Buses to the 2 ferries (Raja Ferry and Seatran Ferry) are waiting in front of Surat Thani railway station. Tickets for the transfer and ferry are issued at the bus.

Tickets can be purchased also at SRT ticket agencies and Bangkok Airport..

Travel time from Surat Thani railway station to Koh Samui is app. 2.5 hours
