How to book train from bangkok to surat thani?

Hi, we are travelling from Bangkok to Surat Thani in December for xmas and New Year. We would like to book the overnight train in advance as it may be busy at this time of year, could anyone advise us on the best way to go about doing this?

Cheers :)

www.thairailticket.com/esrt/Default.aspx…

is the State Railway booking site, but you can only book 60 days or less in advance.

We've done this route a few times and always book in advance, first time did it through an agency, but this past June we booked it direct through the website as detailed by bbtony above, very easy and straight forward, printed our tickets and boarded the train.

You can also buy tickets at the railway station in advance but best to be sure and buy online.

The journey from Donsak pier to the station takes about one hour and half.

Lomprayah Ferry includes a transfer to Surat Thani Train Station in the their ferry ticket price.

Hi,

You can do the same journey with a Raja Ferry. Indeed, it may even be more convenient to do so since it has hourly sailings from Koh Samui to the mainland. Expect to pay around 300 baht.
