Hi Fellow travellers… First post Covid holiday… Old age backpacker used to travelling on trains… But find I can’t book anything in advance… Just wanted some info about how difficult/easy it is to book trains and buses? Route is Bangkok, prachuap khiri khan, Ko Tao, surat Thani and Phuket. Thanks in advance.

No train direct to Phuket. Lots of bus stations for intercity travel.

Like many people my info is a little stale with this virus thing. Presently not in Thailand.

Man in Seat 61 has info on trains.

Even back when things were normal I mostly showed up at the train station for a ride unless it was a sleeper.

Find the places you want to visit on a map of Thailand,

One expat forum is ASEAN TODAY, formerly called ThaiVisa Forum. A good source of up to date info. Also Bangkok Post and Bangkok Nation newspapers can be helpful.

Of course you have to check with the nearest Thai embassy for entry rules.

Good luck.
