Hi there, i'm travelling around thailand for approx 2 weeks before crossing over into laos.
Bangkok- scenic- only 2 daily from bangkok’s Hualamphong Station, via Nakhon Pathom.
-kanchananaburi. Main station is on Thanon Saeng Chuto, 2km north of town centre. Walking distance of some accommodation.
???Ayuttha- -Day trip? Temples:- Viham Phra Mongkol Bopit. Mon-fro 8:30-4:30. sat/sun til 5:30. Most rewarding temple- Wat Na Phra mane- 8-5pm B20.
-Khao Sok National Park( Is it worth the money/time to go here?)
-another island (undecided at the mo)
And then the train to bangkok, and train to the laos border at chong mek.
Thanks very much!

Hello Charlotte, I would certainly recommend that you visit Khao Sok NP as it is a very beautiful area and it is easily accessible from the province of Surat Thani which you will be in anyway if you still wish to visit Koh Samui.
Having said that I would not recommend Koh Samui as it is not such a beautiful place any more. I would recommend Koh Pha-Ngan as it still has some quiet areas along with the usual Full Moon madness on Had Rin. You could easily visit Koh Tao for some great snorkelling and diving for a few days, return to Koh Pha-Ngan and if you are still in the mood you could go to Koh Samui before returning to Surat Thani.
You have the right idea when considering the train as your main mode of transport in Thailand as it is very affordable, scenic and you'll meet so many nice people.
