Can anyone advise on transport to Ko Samui from Hua hin - time/cost etc
you can jump on a train from Hua Hin to Surat Thani. Most reach Hua Hin from Bangkok between 8.00 pm and midnight. You should be able to book a "sleeper" ticket as well at Hua Hin station as the system of booking is computerised. It takes 8 hours, is very cheap, and the transfer time to Samui is around three and a half hours from Surat. i know bkk air fly once or twice a day from BKK to Hua Hin but am not sure if they have a service to samui from Hua Hin.have only done aforementioned train trips.
