Best route and mode of transport from Cambodia to Koh Samui

We plan to travel to Koh Samui -Thailand via Cambodia can you advise on an economic but pleasant route? How long will the journey take? We have booked accommodation for the 23rd December - we would prefer to avoid flooded areas and would like to enjoy the trip. However can be flexible with schedule if need to be.

Hi there,

Difficult question to answer for geographical reasons and also because you say 'economical but pleasant'. Which border entry also plays a part as there are several from Cambodia. without going into all the options (so many but very similar in many ways - no pun intended), I'll go with the easiest which is the train from Bangkok Hualamphong station. You would need to book in advance as I see you are going at xmas time. If coming from the Trat border, bus to bangkok and train to Surat Thani, followed by bus and ferry. From the Thai border this would take at least 36 hours with waiting for connections. Obviously the easiest (less scenic) way is to fly from either BKK to Surat Thani (air asia and cheap - then bus and ferry),Bangkok air direct from Bangkok (expensive!, also from U-Tapao near Pattaya which may be more convenient coming from Cambodia). The fact is the distances involved as I am sure you are aware from looking at a map.

Also again, which border crossing? In any event, I can't think of an alternative (well, bus from Bangkok?0.

Hope this helps,

Gas

Crlely you have picked up an old thread here!

Why not post a new question, with your specific thoughts, budgets, time of year etc.

Bus is always the cheapest!
