Train or bus in Thailand?

Jump to last reply

I'm considering taking a trip to Thailand at some point this year. I would most likely be flying to bangkok and want to end up in the koh samui etc area....

Flying is too expensive and too direct. However, I can't seem to find any conclusive information on the costs and standards of buses and trains.

Can anyone help? I presume the train is a more pleasant journey than the bus - but if it's loads more expensive is the convenience worth it?

Thanks for any help in advance!
