Bangkok to Cha Am Destination Reviews

Delayed departure, but arrived OK. Driver tried to get extra payment although I had already paid overprice through 12GoAsia.
Van Minibus, Nor Neane Transport (ณ.เณรการเดินรถ), Sep 2, 2023
Language barrier made it a bit difficult to find the bus, and we had to get a ticket at the station, so we could not just board. Of course, they didn't charge us but insisted we get a ticket to board.

Train is a often a great choice for long-haul travel especially if you opt for a night sleeper train with berths which will allow you to sleep all your journey through. To make the most of your train journey, choose the class of your ticket wisely.

Note that there are air-conditioned and fan-only carriages; private compartments for 2 or 4; hard and soft seats.
Though the upper class you get the smoother is your journey, often second class air-conditioned or fan-only sleepers are a good money saving alternative.


Vans are a great alternative - or, in many cases - your only option - if you need to travel overland within one and the same province or neighbouring provinces or states. Vans ply the roads between Bangkok and Cha Am, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
