The boat was very great, confy and clean beds, good toilet. The bus was overbooked, no room for everyone and luggage, 3 hour trip very uncomfortable

Ferry was great, the minivan was a bit cramped and uncomfortable. But did the trick and got where we were going.

Boat was surprisingly fine, I took a Valium and slept most of it. Can was quiet spacious for me. It wasn’t fully booked, so we had loads of room. Although I have heard it can be over booked sometimes. Overall I was happy with my experience.

Well the sleeper ferry is a fine experience. I think if it would have busier I would of liked it less as the beds are shoulder to shoulder but I had space between on both sides. However the van was where I had issue. There was not enough room in the van so I had to sit 4 ppl in 3 seats and was very uncomfy for everyone.

Take a sleeping pill before going on the boat, then it’s fine! The transfer in Ao Nang was chaotic, but everyone got where they needed to be. Had to pay another 100 baht extra to get to Railay Beach

The boat was okay, the beds were basically normal hostel beds, but from Suratthani to Krabi it was a bit shameful, especially for the price. First they took us by those trucks with benches in the back to the travel agency, we had to wait there for about 30 min, the personnel was not too kind and also didn't speak more than a few words in English. And the minivan was full, so they put me in the most uncomfortable seat, in the middle in the front, just because I am a short girl so I fit there. Also it did not have seatbelt and a headrest... They don't have the addresses which you gave to be dropped of at, so remember to remind the driver.
