Pretty simple, pretty luxurious, pretty not bad.

The bus stopped in a no-name restaurant with little to no choice.
Ferry Express, Montanatip (Montanatip), Apr 15, 2022
JP
good comfort, enough space, a blanket to cover for bus, toilet, wifi and charger. I would recommend it. The only criticism, at the stop and at the transition to the ferry, nobody really knew how to proceed, where the right ticket was, a language barrier it feels for me a little bit unsure

The seats were really uncomfortable. The ac was leaking on us the whole ride. I ended up sleeping on the ground.

It was very comfortable, and I'd travel again this way. Only when we reached Surat Thani at 6 in the morning we were hurried out of the bus and I forgot a bag of snacks and drinks in the bus, and when I discovered (less than 5 minutes after getting off) the bus was already gone. A walk through the bus to check if there are no left items costs only a few minutes, or giving the passengers enough time or at least not hurry them after waking up, would avoid this from happening. This could easily be done by waking up and telling passengers 5 min before arrival to prepare for getting off.

The trip went smoothly. The cab driver from the hotel did have a hard time finding the Lomprayah pick up point … it might be nice to provide some basic directions on how to get there… main arteries etc.

Bus ride was very comfortable, with big seats that recline. Passengers had to wait for a couple hours for the ferry which wasn't communicated particularly well. But the ferry ride was easy going. I'd definitely do the trip again.

There are a lack of information about the travel (itineraries, changing boats, where the bus embarcation)

Bus is ok, but was unnecessary stop at a shop in the night and they turned on ligts to force us to go out. Then we arrived to a pier an 4 am, but the boat goes at 7. So the trip could be 2 hours shorter. The boat was fast, but it went to a great island first. So we arrived to Koh Phangan after 5 hours sea trip, 1 time changed boat. And all that time a lot of people was seasick. We came 1,5 hour late in the end.
