Koh Tao to Bangkok transfers

Would you recommend booking ferry/train transfers from Koh Tao to Bangkok in advance to ensure a seat or wait until we are on Koh Tao. We need to leave on 6th January 2011?

For that date, book in advance, its peak season. Google for Lomprayah.

For the train you will definitely need to book in advance. Dave in the Buddha view office in Khao Sarn Bangkok is very helpful for travel advice. YOu can e-mail him on info@justdiveit.com

I've just travelled that route 8 days ago via 1st class sleeper train and it was a reasonable journey. I booked in advance through traveller 2000. The tickets are only available 30 days in advance. Check out http://www.seat61.com/Thailand.htm I found it very helpful.

Have fun
