Trains to Phuket and train timetables

Trains to Phuket and train timetables
There are no trains running directly to Phuket. Passengers by train have to stop at the Surat Thani’s Phun Phin railway station. From there pre-arranged minibuses depart for Phuket, and take about two hours. Usually you can buy a combo ticket from travel agents on the Khao San Road and elsewhere in Bangkok costing about 1,000 baht.
It’s still popular among budget travellers to take trains to Phuket however, since they are far more comfortable than an overnight bus. They do take several hours longer for the trip, but it’s far more leisurely. Thailand’s rail network is in serious need of modernisation, but the sleeper services departing in the early evening from Bangkok’s Hua Lumpong station are comfortable enough and generally safe. Ultimately, you might want to consider that budget flights can cost as little as 1,500 baht and get you there in an hour!
