Train to Surat Thani, you may have to go via Butterworth for this and from Surat Thani you get a bus/ferry transfer.

Hi

Agree, bus / train to Surat Thani from KL Sentral 2 buses a day, and the overnight one misses out Butterworth, then bus / taxi to DonSak, then ferry - so many ferries!

Blinking long old journey!

The other option is to take a bus directly from KL to Hat Yai. Then take a bus (or minibus) from Hat Yai to Surat Thani.

There is also a bus that leaves Hat Yai and goes directly to Don Sak pier. I believe there are 2 a day; one at around 10am and the other at 10 pm.

Sorry, you will go to Phangan not to Samui.

Many travel agencies can book minibus in Hat Yai that pick you up from your hotel, otherwise some minibuses depart from clock Tower station.

The Pantip bus that leaves Hat Yai for Samui goes to Don Sak pier and you can pay just for this and not for the boat trip over to Samui.
