    Nakhon Si Thammarat Railway Railway Station is one of two major train stations near the ferry ports at Donsak which is where car ferry services to Koh Phangan and Koh Samui depart from. If you are travelling from the south of Thailand by train then you can reducing your travelling time by alighting at Nakhon Si Thammarat Railway Station and then taking a direct minivan from the nearby bus station to Donsak rather than continue by train all the way to Surat Thani.

    You can buy train tickets both on the day of travel and in advance at the ticket offices in the train station subject to availability. 3rd class seats on the train to Bangkok are normally available to purchase on the day of travel. Tickets on ordinary train services to Sungai Kolok, Yala and Phatthalung are only available for purchase on the day of travel; you cannot book seats on ordinary train services in advance. You can, however, book sleeper berths on trains to Bangkok in advance which is good idea as these tickets normally sell out in advance of the day of travel.
