Bought the ticket directly at the 12go.asia office in Bangkok. Ferry was on time and comfortable. However, the AC was way too cold for the rainy wheater. Bring a sweater and some dramamine.

ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah, Aug 26, 2019
We contracted a pack from Chumphon yo Koh Tao island which included to pick out us at the Chumpon AirPort at 10:00. But finally the bus arrived at 11:40. This long delay was due to the fact that the company decided to wait for the next flight which arrived at 11:30. On that manner they optimise their bus service which becomes full thanks to the flight coming from Bangkok at 08:25 and the one of 11:40. However, the people who wake up early to take the flight Bangkok Shumpon at 07:25 are penalised. 12go asia do not sell the pack of 10:00 if the Lomprayah boat company is not capable to assure the timeline.

The bus trip to the catamaran was arranged perfectly. However, the catamaran trip to the island itself was really crowded. It meant that, even though it rained, a lot of people had to sit outside on benches or on little stools.

I made a mistake by booking from the wrong place (chumphon in stead of surat tani), when I wanted to rebook it wasn’t possible because I was a few hours too late (instead of 96 hours before departure, as stated in the rules, 93 hours before . We lost our money as we had to buy new tickets from surat tani, this time via an operator. Not very lenient!

Only problem we had was there was no one to handle the luggage at the end of the trip. So when we docked 100 people rushed to a large pile of luggage. By the time we got to the pile we only had 1/2 our luggage. The other 1/2 was on the dock. I’m guessing someone picked up our bag and left it there. Other then was the ride was good, offered snacks, and the bathrooms were surprisingly clean.

When you land in chumphon just exit from the baggage claim and you will find a transfer to the pier. At the pier you have time to have lunch or breakfast.

I had booked for the wrong day (the following day) but the "Fame Tour " guy managed to change the date for us without extra charge. That was great! The journey was in good time and we stopped at a nice place for a break. All in all, it was quite good for the price, however, I must either warn passengers or congratulate the driver for his speed and his driving/piloting skills. I guess we are just not used to this driving style which looks like a constant game of chicken...scary at times. But we got there and on time, so thank you!

Bus journey was fine, not too long. Bus was pretty worn out but we got there in one piece. Catamaran journey was ok too. Earplugs are a good idea as it is loud, as you'd expect. Noise cancelling headphones plus music helped me sleep.

Quando siamo arrivati con un van alla stazione di Chumphon ci aspettava la receptionista per il ferry ( l'autista l'aveva chiamata per prevenirla dal nostro arrivo).Ci hanno portato al pier, il ferry è un pochino vecchio , un po rumoroso ma i letti eranno confortevole con lenzuole puliti e aria condizionata. Bellissimo viaggio, partenza alle 22 e 30 arrivo alla 5 di mattina a koh tao.....da fare per chi vuole fare un traversata economica (10euro) e non si aspetta la cabine di lusso
