Koh Samui to Koh Tao Destination Reviews

Ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Sep 26, 2021
Despite the rough water and rain on this stormy morning, the boat captain diligently kept the motoring as smooth as feasible and only a little bit behind schedule. Versus charging through and bringing greater discomfort to passengers.

There are two piers or seatran and I get to the wrong one. Despite that I did not charged and traveled with the next one, but you should have highlighted that so will not get confused!

Ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery (ซีทราน), Mar 17, 2020
I don't like that boat stopped in Koh Phanang even though on the entrance and in the schedule it states Koh Tao. This gets confusing when it stops in Koh Phanang and they don't announce that on board.

Ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery (ซีทราน), Mar 5, 2020
The guidance received on arrival at airport needs to be improved. I was put together with the group for Koh Tao and sent in the direction of various vans. I followed the group and after 1hr drive, found myself at the wrong Pier with a not so friendly driver who took me back to the right Pier and asked me to pay him an extra 200 bath.
