Has anyone been to Phuket from Bangkok? How was the journey? By bus or by plane?
Your share of experience would be appreciated! Thanks!

You can fly (1 hour) or go by bus (around 10-14 hours) -- that's the two main routes.
All the Thai budget carriers fly the route, so if you book far enough in advance you'll get a great deal. Bus tickets go for 500-990B depending on the company and class of the bus
What is the best way to travel from the airport to Sai Tai Mai, southern bus station? Is is a long distance and if a taxi is necessary, will they understand Sai Tai Mai with an american accent?

Yes it's a long way -- by taxi would probably be the quickest. If you're getting a cab from the airport, one of the attendents will be able to tell the cabbie where you're going if needed.
