The Bangkok Airport (BKK) is not very difficult in terms of orientation and finding things, but big and sometimes the lines at the check in counters are long. So make sure you come earlier as you would on another airport., especially on international flights.

2. By Train

You have to go to Surat Tani and then take several Bus Services from Surat Tani to Phuket. This is not difficult to do but will take more time than flying. In order to see some landscape and maybe get to know new fellow travelers, the train bus option is a cool experience.

3. By Bus

You can go from Bangkok to Phuket via Bus. You only need to find a proper travel agency to book the ticket or ask at your hotel reception for tickets.
There are plenty of options to get your ticket. If you’re absolutely lost and you just arrived in Bangkok but need to buy the ticket right now you can always go to Kao San Road and go to one of the tourist offices there. If you are still in the airport you can check out the tourist information at the airport.
