Wonderful, but we started 30 minutes early, so you really should come in 30-45 before scheduled time. P.S. I had a question and tried call to 12go phone line, but auto-answer was in Thai language and I don't understanded anything, after beep I asked to call me back, but had not have any calls

Ferry left late. Which is understandable. A bit disorganized. What was most disturbing was NO enforcement of mask wearing in such a crowded space.This is during a breakout of Omicron. Foreigners should also be responsible and respectful. WEAR your masks around others please.

Everything was good except 12go or Lomlahkkhirin need to update the drop off and location in Koh Samui. They have moved from Maenam Pier in Samui to Bangrak Pier. No one had told me so it was confusing to say the least. I thought my pick up would still be Maenam so I went there first to go back just to find it was completely closed.
