Hi Emma,

The cheapest way is to take a bus, from Puduraya (Sri Maju is one). fare is RM40 up to Hatyai and from here, you can take bus to Phuket, or Koh Samui via Suratthani or proceed all the way to BKK.
I am taking the bus (Wed 20 night 11pm). The bus will arrive about 8am, and I will be taking the Surathani bus (about 180 baht) where I will put up a night, and then take bus to BKK. Hey I will be in Kl city about 12 noon. Care to join me for a banana leaf lunch.

I have a PM for you.

I think danalasta's suggestion is the most interesting way. However, you could get there quickly and cheap flying with Air Asia, particularly if you want to go to Koh Phi Phi or Koh Lanta (both lovely island places) via Phuket.
