Boss, Surat Thani to Khao lak?

Would Boss drive that far?

How long do you think the journey would be?

Or are we better off getting train back to Bkk then air asia to phuket?

Yes. He does the trip regularly and takes about 3 hours so overall quicker and probably cheaper than AirAsia option. Contact him for quote.

I think he should, you would have to email him for a quote. But even taking a bus would be easier and much quicker than heading back to Bangkok.

Your drive from Phuket to Khao Lak would already be the same as 1/2 way from Surat to Khao Lak.

Latest price I got off him 2 weeks ago was 4000.

He also gave me a price from Chumthorn Pier was 6000

I think I read somewhere there is a bus that does the Surit Thani > Khao Lak route. Also, Samui DE had heard / read that Lomprayah Ferries do a transport package deal to Khao Lak. That is if that's where you're coming from

Samui, Phangan, or Tao. The website does not reflect that yet, apparently it's only a new service. One that I have to do more homework on because we are after the same transfer.

The price of 3700 baht is for a standard car. What was the 4000 baht quote for? How many passengers?

Cheers

4000 was for 2 passengers Donsak Pier to The Sands. Lomprayah have transfers to Surit Thani city and train station from the Pier included in their charge. That would be closer / cheaper for Boss ?

Details of the Lomprayah package would be appreciated if possible.

As for transfer from Surat Thani city or train station you can only ask Boss for a quote from there and compare.
