Hi

We will be travelling around Thailand, but the journeys that we need help with are Ko Samui to Krabi/Ao Nang and
Krabi to Hat Yai (enroute to Penang by train from HY)
We have googled around and feel we would like to use the BKS Buses, as don't want to be in a cramped min-bus, with, possibly
a mad driver lol!!
Is there an English version of BKS schedules for above trips.
Any advice really will help.
Thanks:)

This website might help. Perhaps this one as well. I quit riding minivans after my first trip to Tland. Get as much metal around you as possible is my best advice. Choose the gov't buses that leave from a bus station over the private coaches the travel shops try to sell. You will have a safer, better experience IMO.

Good luck with your planning.

Thanks for your quick and informative reply Mike.

Anymore hints and tips on our Thai travels from anyone would be appreciated.

Also has anyone booked train tickets over the phone from the UK with Hualamphong station. I know they no longer process online reservations - Grrr!
