4.Traveling from Bangkok to Phuket by train

If you choose to take the train, there are a few notes for you that there is currently no direct train from Bangkok to Phuket. If traveling by train, you must combine between train and bus. You will go through 2 routes to get to the place you want to go there. You need a 12-hour train from Hua Lamphong and arrive at Phun Phun. After that, you need another 5 hours to move to Phuket by bus.

This way is not too expensive; but very few people choose because this way will cost a lot of time and effort to bring travel packs from the train to the bus.
