We have booked the night at Hua Lamphong Hostel (so we can just walk across the road in the morning to the train station)
The train gets to Suart Thani at 16:45. Last ferry departs Don Sak at 19:00, to arrive at Koh Samui at 20:30.
I've read train delays are common in Thailand. Is the timetable above manageable ? Just a little concerned that if the train is too late we might struggle to get that last ferry, and be stuck in Surat Thani.
The hostel we are staying at can pre-book trains tickets etc, so I asked about the above and their first response was that you can't take the train and get to Koh Samui on the same day. They being locals I assume they know what they are talking about, but as far I can find out on train and ferry websites the above timetable does exist.
Has anybody managed to do the above ? Is it still only THB 778 for the package ?
