Everything went smooth, just be prepared to drive from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and than to the mainland (Chumpon), where the busses wait. For the lack of the detailed information about the itinerary only 4 stars.

Well organised. Coach was modern and well air conditioned. But only 1 stop on a 7 hour journey was not enough. 2 would have been better to break the monotony.

The overall experience was great along the trip. The boat is good and the crews are friendly. Only the chairs are not comfortable to sit for a long time. It would be much better if the foods are served for the passengers who travel the long way (e.g. Koh Samui-Bangkok)

Well organised and smooth journey. However, we didn't realise we would be on a boat for 4 hours stopping off at different islands! The seats on the boat were hard and very uncomfortable. The coach wasn't very comfortable either.

1.We reached at Lomprayah Checkin stop at 7:00 AM with schedule time of ferry 8:00 AM and that got delay and started at arounf 8:45 Am which is not good as we need to wakeup for the ferry early and seek transportation option from our hotel. 2. Ferry ride was pathetic , All passenger were puking due to rough ride may be sea waves . 3. Nobody informed us that Ferry will go to 4 island before the final one which was ours so that is very bad because why we choose ferry ride we can go in normal ferry also with 1.5 hours only and this ferry took more than 3.5 hour that to very rough ride so its very bad experience ,In future I can not suggest anybody to ride this ferry due many reason. 1. Not on Schedule 2. Rough Ride 3. Even Speed Ferry took 3.5 hour to reach my destination pier . Good : Bus service was good .

We arrived at Maenam Pier at 7:30, half an hour before departure, to be told the service had moved today, and we had to go to Bangbao(?) Pier. They had a transfer set up waiting - so it wasn't the worst thing. I guessed it was to do with the sea conditions. Foreshadowing... Upon arrival at the other pier we were given a sticker with our destination on it, and told to board straight away as it was about to depart. The catamaran is a nice, modern looking, boat. Our luggage was stored inside the cabin, at the front. The cabin is air conditioned. The crossing itself was truly awful. Hours of being bumped around and people being sea sick. Staff were handing out sick bags constantly. I have never been sea sick before and can say that it was one of the worst experiences of my life. I'm sure it would have been fine if the sea were flat as a pancake, but it's been quite stormy, and as catamarans skim the water it was seeing a lot more movement than another kind of boat would have - obviously the weather/sea conditions aren't Lomprayah's fault, just stating how the crossing was. I can't comment on any other part of the boat other than my seat because I couldn't leave my seat from when I sat down to when we reached Champhon. There is a snack bar, and it sounded reasonable, from what people who weren't stuck to their chairs were saying. 20B for a coffee. 30B for biscuits - what we had been paying on any other ferret service in the Andaman. The seats didn't recline and weren't that comfortable, but I was glad of the hard upright seat given the state I was in. After getting off the boat we walked along the pier, directed to another check-in desk and got given a coloured sticker and told the bus would go at 12:30. There were 3 buses headed to Bangkok, and we were told to get on number 10. I was really worried that we were going to get out into a minibus, and I was feeling really delicate. I was relieved to find out the bus was a double decker, had air-conditioning, quite comfortable reclining seats, and a toilet. We made 1 stop for half an hour about 2 or 3 hours into our drive. There were toilets, lots of places to get something to eat and drink, and plenty of time to get some fresh air on solid ground. Then straight onto Bangkok. The toilets did start to smell a bit towards Bangkok, but I think that's understandable with the length of journey and number of people. We arrived bang on time, at Lomprayahs office. There were lots of taxis waiting to take people to their destinations. We ordered a Grab, having experienced Bangkok's taxi rip-off-republic a few times too many. Overall, the service got us to Bangkok, on time, without any problems on Lomprayah's part. The catamaran journey was the worst thing I've ever done, but that was down to the sea conditions. The bus was a relief, and a smooth journey.
