There is one service each day between Hat Yai and Koh Lipe, leaving at 09.00 in either direction, the journey lasts between four and five hours with a scheduled arrival time of 13.30.

Helpfully passengers can choose whether they wish to use these services from Hat Yai’s train station or the city’s airport. Services departing from or terminating at the train station are priced at THB600 whereas the buses that head to the airport cost THB700.

VIP minivans are used on all services when travelling with Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai.

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.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The ride was very nice. The only down side driver was 45 minutes early. I read the fine print where you state the drive will pick you up 30 minutes before or after the stated time. So when the driver picked me up 45 minutes early I was a little thrown off. Everything else went smoothly. The driver was very friendly and helpful to give me directions on where to go after the drop off.

5* for van service: nice driver, pick-up on time, comfortable van. speed boat was not that comfortable, crowded and we found the 2 additional stops on the way to Koh Lipe unnecessary and very tiring, the trip would be much better if we could avoid additional stops and get direct ferry.

The trip was very well organised. The bus did arrive a bit late and we had to phone to check where they were. We just got to the pier on time but check in was smooth. Boat trip great and had a beautiful stop over on a deserted island for 20 minutes.

Hotel pick up was fine, on time. Driver was cautious to remind us to put on seatbelts. He drove quite fast. The transfer took forever (2hours) and then the 2 island stop. Unnecessary unless it is for the reason so people don't throw up. We got there 1.5h after scheduled arrival.

Picked up on time, fellow travellers picked up at their various locations, smooth journey across to the ferry. Good ferry trip, took one stop but no one seemed too bothered about getting off the vessel, so after a few minutes carried on to koh lipe.

Picked up at hotel on time, mini bus short on legroom for me as 6ft 5in but same problem everywhere I travel. Transfer went to schedule, boat trip was good with desert island stop to stretch legs for 30min on route. Very happy with point to point transfer with no problems.

My wife and I were dropped off at Gold Crown Grand hotel at Hat Yai today at 1:50 Pm on 10th Feb’19. We may have forgotten our property (sunglass case with glasses and ear ring inside) + Cap..in your minibus. We were sitting in the last seats.

We were supposed to leave at 9am, but when you get to the beach, they informe you that the boat leaves at 9:30. We actually left around 9:40. There was enough seats and lifevests for everyone in the speedboat. When we arrived in Pak Bara, there was someone waiting with our names on a signs as planned. We arrived at the airport a little later then expected, but it is because we waited the other people that were going to the airport. The last family to get on the bus was travelling with 2 young kids. That might explain the delays.

Voucher said that pick up from hotel is at 9.30 AM however driver arrived already at 9.10 and we were the last ones to be picked up. No issues on the way, process was organized smoothly, except having 2 stops on the way from which the second one did not make really sense and we arrived 30 min after scheduled arrival time.

The meet up point on the island is totally different from the place from the email. And we couldn’t find any staff at the meet up point they told us after we called. Finally we made it back to the pier. The bus driver was very nice but we were basically panicking all the way back to the hotel because he was driving too fast.

Average service with a few hidden twists. The minibus drop off was at a booth a few hundred metres from the entry to the pier whilst other minimises were dropping off closer to the enterance to the pier. The 20 bhat charge for use of the pier is a joke.....absolutely unbelievable but not the comoanys fault but it should be more widely publicised. Helpful crew on boat and not excessive speed minivan driver although he took alot of phone calls and not hands free....TIT
