Really efficient transfer from Lanta to Samui. Minivan pick-up from Lanta was a few minutes late (but they give you plenty of warning of this), 2.5 hours, comfortable. Dropped off at Sea Pearl offices in Krabi, 10 minute wait, then loaded onto bus (bigger than minivan) for drive to Don Sak pier - roughly 2.5 hours as well with comfort stop in the middle. Then walk onto ferry which is big and pretty comfortable. Once arrived in Samui you have to sort your own transport - there are shared minivans waiting that are around 200thb. A good, safe experience overall!

if you're concerned about the lack of detail or some reviews dont worry about it.I was too but its very simple.You get picked up at the hotel in a minivan and you go to krabi to then get on a bus.Its a little place as big as a bar would be where they ask for your ticket and they show you to your bus.Then bus to surat thani pier and the bus driver buys your ticket(card) and then the ferry drops you off at ko samui pier.This is probably the hardest part but you walk all the way past tuk tuks and taxis until you see vans similiar to the ones you got picked up in and you just ask and show your ticket and they will either say yes or no

Все достаточно хорошо организовано, по сравнению с тем как бывает в Тайланде. Много пересадок, но все быстро. На пирсе на Самуи встречали с табличками.

Order was for a minivan ride from Ko Lanta hotel to Ko Samui hotel. But the reality was minivan to Krabi, in office we must waits for bus ride to Surat Thani ferry and than minivan on Samui. I was in Thailand many times before, so there is no surprises.
