    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.
