Train Tickets to Bangkok


The earliest train you can catch on the same day as departing from Koh Tao is Train #174 departing from Chumphon at 19:36 and arriving in Bangkok at 05:10. We advise booking Train #174 in advance. There is no great advantage in waiting for a later train.

  • There are other trains departing earlier in the day before the connecting ferry and bus service from Koh Tao arrive at Chumphon train station.

Best Trains: #174 and #168


  • Train #174 (19:36): 2nd class air-conditioned sleeper berths as well as 2nd class fan cooled sleeper berths are available on Train #174 but make sure you book in advance as everyone travelling from Koh Tao to Bangkok by train will want seats on the same train.
  • Train #168 (20:31): The slightly later departure on Train #168 at 20:31 is a virtually identical service to Train #174 and is a good substitute if all the sleeper seats on Train #174 are already fully booked when you want to travel. During your time waiting for the train we recommend going for a meal at the excellent Papa Seafood restaurant on the approach road to the train station, a 36 metre walk from the station building.
