About Travel from Koh Samet to Bangkok


The final destination for joint boat and bus services from Koh Samet to Bangkok is Bangkok Eastern Bus Terminal, also known as Ekkamai Bus Station because of its location on the Sukhumvit Road in a neighbourhood known as Ekkamai.

Travel from Bangkok Eastern Bus Terminal

Of the three major bus terminals in Bangkok, the Eastern Bus Terminal is the most convenient in terms of onward transport because the bus station is very close to Ekkamai BTS Station.

Bangkok’s BTS Network

BTS is formal name for what is known locally as the Sky Train, which is a network of elevated fast modern suburban train services. The BTS covers most of the city, and for other destinations you can join connected transport networks, such the Airport Link and the MRT (metro), at various interchanage stations.

Travel to the Khao San Road

For travel to the Khao San Road you can take the BTS to Saphan Taskin BTS station to board a Chao Phraya Express Boat service to Phra Arthit Pier, which is an easy 10 minute walk from the Khao San Road.

Staying on the Lower Sukhumvit Road

If you are arriving back in Bangkok and are looking for somewhere close to stay then we recommend that you take the BTS just a few stops towards the lower part of the Sukhumvit Road (Nana BTS station). The lower part of the Sukhumvit Road has lots of mid-range hotels, as well as probably the most extensive range of restaurants and bars anywhere in Bangkok.

This part of Bangkok isn’t necessarily the cheapest place to stay but it does represent good value for money in terms of the quality of the hotels and food available in the area.
