Only issue was the slowness of the journey from Krabi to Saladin. Long wait at the car ferry

ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery, Dec 24, 2019
It took as promised 8h. All was organized, no problems. As a ticket was only until to the pier we paid extra for a van owner to bring us directly to the hotel in Lanta. Next time I would try a private transport from hotel to hotel with 5h, see thaiwisely.com. This time we were suspicious because of no information who and how, couldn't find any comments either.
