Surat Thani

transportation to their destination. They may be aggressive and rude. They may even try to unload your luggage from the bus to make you follow them. If you agree to this scam, you will be taken a few kilometres away by songthaew (which will be promised to be "free") to a travel agency in the city centre, where you are likely to be asked a ridiculous price (e.g., 450-500 baht to Ko Samui) to go to your destination. If you refuse, they will try to charge you 2-3 times the regular price (60 baht person for a trip with 5-10 fellow passengers) for a supposedly free songthaew trip from the bus. If going from Ko Samui or Ko Pha Ngan, the same may happen. If so, they will either try to sell you Khao San Road bus ticket (widely known for theft on board) or, if you happen to have a train ticket, to offer you a triple-priced taxi - as they'll smartly make you leave the bus in the middle of nowhere, your choices and arguments for bargaining will be limited. This is the most annoying part of travelling to from Ko Samui and Ko Pha Ngan via Surat Thani, and the best you can do is to ignore their requests, not leave the bus in a remote places, use the official bus only, and generally follow the Thai people travelling on the same bus from the start (especially if some are going to the same destination as you). As noted above, the "Bus Terminal" in the centre of town has mainly local buses there. At least some buses from Khao Lak go to this point and not to any other bus terminal. It seems that buses to other places, e.g., Krabi, do go from here though. If you are arriving at the train station, and your plans call for transit to Phuket, buses depart every few hours, until about 15:30. The ticket price is very reasonable by Western standards. Travel time is three to four hours. The bus departure area is about 100 m away from the train station. For specific directions, just ask the representative at the railway information desk. By boat You can take the ferry from any of the islands nearby, taking about an hour. There is food on board and movies as well. From islands such as Ko Samui, Ko Pha Ngan, and Ko Tao a ferry ride takes between 7 and 9 hours depending on whether you take the fast or slow boat. The slow boat from Ko Tao is overnight and features mattresses for sleeping. The skipper is especially friendly. The ride will generally cost 500-600 baht depending on the season. Be wary of black market tickets as people will try to sell you tickets for over 2,000 baht, promising food and DVDs included in the price. Always go to a TAT-approved travel agency. Get around When you get off, there are two ferry companies with departures every 30 minutes (Seatran Ferry and Raja Ferry). There is a bus ride included with the trip (note the strange system of paper tickets combined with circular stickers that you stick on your shirt). It is a 45 minute bus ride down backroads from the ferry terminal to Surat Thani. More than one ferry terminal serves Surat Thani. Tuk-tuks cost around 10-20 baht per person) around the town. Hail one on any major road with a wave or yell, negotiate a fare, and sit on the bench in the back. See * Wikipedia:Surat Thani
