Pros

Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai is a good option for anyone looking to visit Koh Lipe from the mainland. The fact that the ferry trip is included in the cost of the tickets is helpful as it can save passengers a lot of hassle trying to arrange separate stages of this trip and it can often work out cheaper to purchase this combination ticket through Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai.

For those enjoying the stunning beaches of Koh Lipe, Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai is useful as you can head to Hat Yai to then easily cross the border into Malaysia. This service is handy for those whose visa is coming to an end and they need to exit the country at short notice.

Finally, the option of arranging tours of the Songkhla province is ideal for those who are travelling on a shorter schedule. This full day tour would allow visitors to see all the tourist spots around the region in just one day, saving a good deal of time travelling around the area by public transport.

Cons

The biggest issue with Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai is the limited choice of departures. With just one minivan leaving each day from Hat Yai for Koh Lipe, travellers will most likely be required to stay in Hat Yai overnight in order to catch this service.

Keep in mind

Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai also offers tours around the local area. For example, you can choose this operator to travel across the Songkhla province and visit a wide range of tourist destinations including temples, religious sites and beaches. To hire a minivan for this full day tour costs THB2,000, with capacity for 12 passengers, and a private car is priced at THB1,700 for the day. On top of this you will have to pay entrance fees to these sights.

Travellers Reviews

Most visitors think that more departures are needed to make Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai a more useful service for passengers. A greater number of services on the Hat Yai to Koh Lipe route would be beneficial as it would give visitors more flexibility as to arranging their travel plans.

Currently, passengers need to ensure that they have arrived in Hat Yai for 09.00 in order to travel to Koh Lipe, this may not be possible if you are travelling from further afield so it is likely that you will have to stay at least one night in Hat Yai.

Similarly, if Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai offered an improved number of routes then passengers would benefit, especially if these included minivans to other major destinations across the country such as Bangkok, Pattaya or Koh Samui. Passengers are sometimes surprised that the operator does not offer a transfer to the Malaysian border from Hat Yai as this would no doubt prove a popular service for many travelling around this region.

Schedule of pickup at hotel was 930am but the van came at 9am! But was ok as we were ready already. There was a security check enroute pakbara but luckily we managed to arrive at the pier 15min before the 1130am departure to koh lipe. The ferry ride was good. It stopped at tarutau np to do some transfer but we were allowed to get into the np for 10min, it was a bonus for us! Another big bonus was they stopped at the Lover's Gate (rock arch) on koh chuku for us to take pictures! We arrived koh lipe at 1330pm.

I booked Koh Lipe to Hay Yai airport for 600 TBH. Even though we left an hour later than expected (low season), the staff was very nice, the boat and the van were clean, safe (life vests), there was someone waiting for me in the pier, and I made it in time for my flight. I will definitely book again with them. Thank you!

When we arrived at the airport there was no one waiting for us and we had to ask around for the tours representatives. Eventually they arrived and told me my booking was done to 1h later, which is not what was written in my voucher. Mini bus was a bit old and could be cleaner but adequate and had the A/C working. When we arrived at the pier, some lady showed up and gave me a sticker and a plastic ticket and told me to go inside the pier. We were not sure what to do with those. More information would had been helpful. To enter the pier we had to pay 20 THB just because. We tried to argue about that fee but to no avail. It would had been good for 12go to let us know about this extra magic fee. When we got in, we were told our speedboat wad fully booked and we would have to wait 1h for the next one. Not sure how that happened, given that the agency was supposed to have booked the specific 14h30 speedboat. We did get to our destination but the service was mediocre.

The van from our hotel to the pier was good, comfortable and with air conditioner. But the speed boat to Koh Lipe was horrible, everyone was vomiting and the boat was bumping all time, very uncomfortable trip

Arrived on time. Rough speed boat ride but because of bad weather. Many people were sick on boat. Great experience.

The driver to the speed boat was very, very friendly and we went comfortable in a van to the speed boat. The speed boat was very full - to many people were on the boat - that wasn't good.

This was the cheapest operator proposed by 12go, coming cheaper than tickets bought in the airport, and the service was clearly the same as the other ones, satisfying if not outstanding, Everything was on time, the speedboat trip is a rather unpleasant but unavoidable experience. Contrarily to what was written on the voucher, there was nobody waiting for us at the arrival of the plane, the driver materialized 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time.

Mini van driver displayed irresponsible driving (racing 2 other mini vans on route to the ferry port) which put us and our 2 kids on edge. This kind of driving is outright dangerous, of which there was absolutely no need as we arrived 30 mins early. In Brief the mini van experience was both stressful and genuinely dangerous. The speedboat was well organised and the whole transfer procedure was great to awesome - Awesome in the fact that the boat trip was a unique and pleasurable experience.

Easy on and easy off! A can was there waiting for us and we got going early since no one else was sharing it with us. The pier for the speedboat was small and you have to pay a pier fee of 20thb per person. The speedboat was also on time and easy locate. Overall excellent experience with no hassle!

The travel company did not specify that pick up is from exit point of the airport instead of the arrival hall so we waited at the arrival hall. Van is big and comfortable. Will choose the company again for airport transfer.
