Koh Tao to Railay Destination Reviews

Everything worked pretty flawlessly. The sleeper ferry is comfy, especially when not full. It does rock back and forth and up and down depending on the weather. Should usually be fine though, I slept pretty okay :) You should know that the boat to Railay just leaves whenermver there's enough people to make the trip so you wait there for awhile not knowing when things will happen but they usually do.

The sleeper ferry was fully booked but they added some mattress directly on the floor between some beds. But I slept unexpectedly well. One issue was that there weren't many indication on the ticket/reservation for what to do after the first ferry to find the minivan but some people helped us find the was. Great overall. We got to the destination early. First ferry is approximately 8h then a bus for around 3h and a long tail boat of 15-20min.

Everything perfect and on time. From koh Tao to Ao Nang, we arrived even earlier. Recommended.

Sleeper ferry was great, but my seat in the mini van had no leg room and was super uncomfortable.

Ferry to Koh Phangan, then speed boat to Surat Thani, then bus to Krabi. The bus stops at Lomprayah Krabi office, then a mini van will take you to Ao Nammao Pier and finally. a longtail boat will take you to Railay East.
