Ko Samui to Kuala Lumpur

Posted by ACasualObserver on 4/2/2013 at 05:11

Hi all

On Ko Samui. Need to get to Kuala Lumpur (leaving here 10th Feb, want to get there by 11th)

There seem to be a couple of options:

1) Boat/bus combination, via Surat Thani
2) Boat then train
3) Flight from Samui or Surat Thani

Option 3 is too expensive

So that leaves 1 & 2.

Anyone any experience with either? The three agents we've tried all seem a bit vague about times/practicalities. But then the changes on train seem a bit far apart and journey time slow.

Any ideas about the best route? Timescales? Reasonable prices? Negatives or scams to report?

I'd stress that I'd like info doing it this way, rather than KL to Thailand.

You say flying is too expensive but have you looked at Firefly ?
On the 10th Feb Samui to Subang (Kuala Lumpur) is only MYR173 about EUR40

(gave you the same reply elsewhere)

Have done your Option (1) Boat to Surat Thani, then got a bus to Hat Yai, from there plenty of VIP buses to KL.
