After reading many forums there seems to be some confusion about getting to BKK from CR. And it doesn't help that the posts that I did find are outdated. So I am attempting to reach out to the experts here on TA !
I will be in CM for a few days and then taking a bus up to CR. I then need to get to BKK from CR to catch the 6AM bus that goes to Koh Tao.
Can you please advise the best transportation route to get to BKK? Whether it be from CM or CR? Plane tickets seem to be quite expensive so I don't think it will fit my budget but maybe they are cheaper last minute deals when you go into the airport (kind of like last minute sales for fill up the plane?).
Another option I found is take a bus back to CM from CR and grab the night train that goes to BKK. I end up spending a day in BKK because the train arrives at around the time the boat would leave.
