Having considered the options for travelling between our two destinations, we settled on using the train as discussed and booked here.

So, onto the actual experience. Well, it was pretty positive. We went into it as openly as possible with realistic expectations that were pleasantly met. Continue reading Overland travel: Bangkok >>> Koh Samui, Thailand
