Bus + ferry join tickets to go to Thailand islands

There are more and more offers joining bus (or minivan) and ferry to bring you to the islands of Thailand from Bangkok, from Suvarnabhumi Airport, Khao San Road or one of the capital bus terminals.
iles thailande
By bus, you can go almost anywhere you want in Thailand. This is the most used public transportation in the country. The price is very affordable especially for public buses and more expensive if you choose VIP Buses which generally offer more comfortable seats, a bottle of water and one or more meals included in the price. Sometimes, movies or TV shows are broadcasted on board, but only in Thai. In thailand, you can hail the buses from the side of the road like taxis and just buy a ticket once on board. No need to go to the bus terminal. Similarly if you want to get off at any time during the trip, just alert the driver and bus attendant and they will drop you off. If you visit the islands, you can buy directly a bus + ferry ticket. In buses, there is no limit on luggage and no extra fee to pay if you have a heavy one. Each city has its bus terminal where you can go and buy your tickets. If travel agencies also offer to sell bus tickets, buy them directly to the counter at bus terminals, it is cheaper and you compare the prices of different bus companies or find the schedule that is the suitable for you. Bangkok has three major bus terminals, each with its region of destination. Mochit, the largest one is the gateway to towns in the North of Thailand and also offers some departures for cities in the South or in the East, Sai Tai Mai offers buses to the South and Ekkamai to the East of the country. Sometimes terminals are located outside the city and you have to take a taxi, tuk tuk, songthaew or other means of transportation to reach them.

Note that there are persistent rumors of thefts in bus leaving from Khao San Road and in buses during ferry transfers. However, apart from these two cases, the thefts are extremely rare if not nonexistent.

minivan thailande

Mini vans in Thailand

Most minivans in Thailand are operating on the same lines as the buses. They are a little more expensive but not that much. Depending on your destination, sometimes you do not have the choice but if you hesitate between taking a minivan or a bus, be aware that minivans drivers often have a much sportier and even risky driving than bus drivers. The speed is the main minvans' selling point. If you are tall you may have not a lot of room for your legs and sometimes you have to pay an extra seat if are not traveling alone and have heavy luggage.
angkor wat

Direct bus to the temples of Angkor

Buses leave from Mo Chit in Bangkok to Siem Reap in Cambodia where the temples of Angkor are. It is a 8-9 hours journey to go, cross the border, do visa and continue your bus trip to your final destination. We deeply recommend you to take the opportunity of your trip to Thailand to discover Angkor (minimum 3 days)!

Direct buses are a good and easy way to go to Cambodia for a good price. And once there, take a look at this page about Siem Reap to have gat all information to organize and enjoy your stay !

.

It is better to book your seats at least 5 days in advance. You can book bus tickets online on 12go website.

The plane sometimes cheaper than the bus

It happens occasionally that the domestic flights are cheaper or just a little more expensive than a long bus trip. This is particularly the case when low-cost airlines flying to Thailand offer promotion deals. Nok Air is the champion of specials deals. So why not have a look on its website ! Don't forget that you might also have to pay the cost of a transfer from the airport to the city. But you will save hours of travel.

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook we will share all the planes promotions we see.
