It was raining when we left Koh Samui. We got a little wet. Inside the boat it was so full - the two of us couldn't sit together. When I dropped my backpack in the front the stuff didn't recognize me asking to be careful because I had a coffee in my hand. He took the backpack and coffee dripped on my and two other backpacks. Not sure if they were waterproof. Maybe some of the clothes from git wet.

Trip costs 360 THB if you book via 12Go. If you book directly at Haad Rin Peer you only pay 200THB per Person! In booking process is said, that you need to book extra seat for your luggage exceeding 15kg. So we did. At the counter at the peer we got told, that we did not need extra booking of seat for luggage! So we start a refund to 12Go. They cancel the 2 reservations an refund de Money!
