I'm planning a trip from Bangkok to Koh Samui by train.
I've read Elina's blog and seen the various websites related to train travel mentioned in that blog and also the websites of the travel agents mentioned in www.seat61.com. I've also compared the results with the official site of Thailand trains. The problem is that there is no consensus in either of them. The prices for the train travel from Bangkok-Surat Thani and the arrival time for the train(85) is also different. in all of them.
I'm totally confused about how to book the trains. Could someone help me please. Also if anyone has travelled in this train and knows how much does it cost to travel in class 2 with aircon and the exact arrival time in Surat Thani, then it would be a lot of help.
