Phuket - Getting Around
Local tuk-tuks and taxis are easy to come by and many hotels operate
shuttle buses to Phuket Town and other beaches. There are no roads on
Koh Phi Phi so most transportation is by long-tail boat.

Trains don't run from Phuket, which is rather unfortunate as train tickets in Thailand are cheap comfortable. You can, however, get a Hualamphong Station in Bangkok to Phun Phin near Surat Thani, where you can catch a coach to Phuket.
There are about 14 coaches per day between Surat Thani and Phuket in both directions. Coaches begin running at 05:00, then leave at regular intervals until 15:30. Your train should arrive in the morning so you should not have any problems catching a coach.
