We recently caught a bus from the Southern bus terminal to Kanchanaburi and it has moved out of town, the station is brand spanking new. To get there we caught an ORANGE (not the blue and white) 511 public bus from the Democracy Monument and the bus ride took about 25/30 mins, costing close to 20 Baht each. The bus terminal was the last stop on the 511 route. When you get off the bus, climb the stairs over the walkway and this leads you to the terminal proper where you can buy your tickets. Heaps of food and shops there also, pharmacy etc.

Here's a top tip. Certain bus companies (e.g. Sopon Tour) have offices along Rachadumnoen Avenue near Khao San Road so you can just turn up at the office an hour before departure and catch the bus there instead of going through the hassle of getting to the new Southern Bus Station.

I'm planning to go from BKK to Ranong next week, so do you know how to find out which bus company is operating this route? Because it would be great if I could avoid going to the southern bus terminal one day before.

Ratchathewi BTS to Tai Mai (Southern) bus terminal should run about 150 baht, a bit more if there's a lot of traffic. Make sure they use the meter.

ther major prob will rather be to find any taximeter willing to go there. Even though uncle in kaki-generals have also promised to make us happy by not allowing that. Sai Thai is still very much ruled by a southern Thai style taxi-mafia-mob, thus other drivers cannot find return fares.Anyone keeping asking about aprrox taxifares should do a repeat course in simple arithmatics of primary school. Its just kms x fare + a little for waiting

I disagree. First off, you'd need to know how much it is for the flag fall plus how much it is for each kilometer. Then you'd have to know how many kilometers it is from where you are to where you wish to go. Even frequent visitors to Bangkok would not likely have those specifics available to calculate a taxi fare.
That's why there is Travelfish! It is a fun and usually friendly place for people to ask questions about things like taxi fares. How cool is that!?!
