Bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970, Nov 16, 2019
Driver from Donsak Pier to Surat Thank Airport was not nice and rather rude. I had my window open for some fresh air and after like 10 minutes he started yelling in words. I had no clue what he meant till he said something like airco. He also said 2000 baht etc, i assume he meant 2000 baht fine?? For having a window open? Actually ridicilous. I then closed my window, he kept mumbling for a bit and then was ok. I find it insane that the driver couldnt ask me to close my window normally and threatened with 2000 baht fine

We rode in the air conditioned VIP section which was very comfortable. Happy to get out of the hot sun for the 2.5 hr ride.

The trip on the ferry was very calm and comfortable. And then I went in a mini fen to the airport and we arrived sooner, so It was great.

We were on time, the boat was nicely signed, and the connection to the airport was ready when we came to the harbour in Surat Thani. Staff waited and showed us the way / which bus.. the way to the airport took 1,5 hours we were 30 minutes earlier:) good traveling.

To many people, they even put the luggage on dek because there is to little space. Some people have to stand for 2 hours because of the little space. You can better go with the ferry seatran, they have enough sitting space in the shadow on the boat and a airconditioning room what is big enough for everybody

ferry ferry, Raja Ferry, Oct 13, 2019
Pros: it’s helpful that this ticket covers the ferry and the bus. The staff are kind and informative as well when we were trying to get our tickets and figure out which pier to go to. Cons: the ferry was 30 min late. As a result, our bus was 45 min late to the airport. The bathroom on the ferry is maybe the worst bathroom I’ve had to use in Thailand. Sopping wet, squattie potties, no soap or toilet paper or paper towels. There was no bathroom of course on the bus.

Return trip with Phantip. No information on the journey route - you have to go to Donsak and get a coach to the airport. Ferry was a car ferry as well as foot passenger. It was incredibly hot, no air conditioning at all. The coach trip was much better and quite comfortable. If doing it again I would definer go with Lomprayah as we did with our outbound trip - much better organised, quicker and a much more comfortable ferry journey.

We were told by a local agent that a trip from the islands to Chiang Mai is going to cost us 1900 Baht. For just 100 baht more, 12Go put together a boat and bus package to the airport including a direct flight to Chiang Mai. We cut two days of travel and hours of sitting in a bus for just $3 more. Everything was smooth, no delays or stress with the tickets. Will book again. Thank you for a good experience.

Everything was fine except the arrangements from the Koh Phangan Pier were a little bit confusing. It could be organized slightly better.

it is well organised and good value for the money. We had the early departure at 5 am but ferry left on time, we took a nap on lower deck and arrived to Donsak few hours later. Then a van took us to the airport. All together 5 hours but if you manage to sleep in between it seems much shorter :)

Traghetto un po’ vecchietto ma seduta comoda. Molto scomodo e vecchio il pullman che ci ha portati all’aeroporto di Surat Thani. Ottima organizzazione

Delayed nearly 1 hour without precise information and we should wait hot outside. Probably the boat was overbooked - many people should sit on deck.
