I am planning to do 2 day/2 nights at Khao Sok NP next January. I am expected to depart from Krabi using a minibus service which apparently runs just once a day at about 11:00 and which is said to pick you up from the pier/travel agency offices/hotels/guesthouses. (Transit time is 3 hours. Price: 300/350 baht). Is this information correct? :)
On the way back, I want to go to Bangkok. I know about the bus/night train option from Surat Thani, but I also know that there is some VIP bus that takes you directly from Khao Sok to Bangkok. I would definitely be more interested in this option to spend some more time in Khao Sok. However, I do not wish to arrive late the next day in Bangkok as I will be flying out the very same day.
Does anybody know the details of this VIP bus? At what time does it leave and from where? How much is the transit time? How much does it cost? What type of bus is it (larger type air con coach)?
Thanks in advance.
