    Wow, what an adventure. We have done Chang Mai and Chang Rai and loved them both.

  4. I’m afraid to fly, so always travel overland in SE Asia. Which isnt always so nice… had to take a 3rd class overnight train from surat thani to bkk and “sleep” on a half of a hard bench!

    What such a cool adventure… I have never been to Chiang Rai or Koh Samui so it is great to know you have covered every point about getting there. Good detials and info

    It seems cool adventure. I have never been to China ever. Great to read your experience, you covered all the points getting there.

    Now this really is a very thorough post. Certainly, as someone who travels a lot while still battling a pretty severe phobia of it, I can say that it’s great to learn that at least some of the journey can be taken outside those horrible flying deathtraps. And really, there are few things more picturesque that a ferry ride in South East Asia

    • Natasha says:

      There certainly are ways around the flying issue in Asia. If you check out a website called seat 61 you can take the whole journey and travel between countries all around South East Asia by bus or train!

  8. That sounds like a great adventure, Wow!!!

    Oh nice! I only went to the other Koh, named Koh Chang. Was the bus station named Ekkamai Station?

  10. I’ve done something like this a few years back but it was really tyring!

  11. This is really a 16 hour trip that full of beautiful scenery to enjoy. I like how you write this article as it simply sound like a guide for those that are planning to take the same trip as what you did. I have never been to Thailand yet and I’ll surely bookmark this for a future reference. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Great guide from Chiang Rai to Samui. It’s helpful to those especially such as myself who have never been to Thailand yet.

    • Natasha says:

      It hope it is helpful. It is something we searched for and had to learn for ourselves so I wanted to make it easy for others
