ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Feb 4, 2020
Seamless, the return trip in the afternoon was running 30 mins behind schedule and we had a connection at CJM airport on NOK air. The boat crew prioritized our unloading and got us into van that departed first. NOK air got us on the flight with our checked luggage. The flight was delayed 10 mins. The luggage arrived in Bangkok with us. Highly recommend this service
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Jan 10, 2020
The boat was delayed with 35 minutes and we only made it with out flight because the flight with NokAir was also delayed. The boat ride itself was very comfortable, had no motion sickness and the transport to the airport was done quickly and efficiantly.
ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm (ส่งเสริม), Jan 8, 2020
Songserm boat and pier (as opposed to Lomprayah) seem to be more realxed and the boat was certainly less crowded even in super peak season. The boat allowed moving all around the ship which was nice. The A/C is set at very low temperature so dress up. One star down for almost 2 hour delay & for playing on the screens a fairy tale with author's commentary instead of original sound

The trip with the ferry was okay and was on time. The driver who drove the van to the airport was very carefull and drove slowley, but was getting behind of his time schedule. We almost missed our flight (Nok air) by a minute! If the ferry or the bus to the airport is getting behind of its time schedule, you will propably miss your flight.
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Oct 19, 2019
Had a really good time. Everything went in the scheduled time. Bus was there waiting to take us to the airport. One small detail : if something goes wrong, like a flat tire you will probably lose your flight. Plan accordingly

Smooth sailing.... even when there was a mixup with my tickets, they stayed courteous. Really like the service provided by Lomprayah!!

Excellent ride & service. A million times better than with the other company we traveled with on the way. Crew was careful with bags and very organized. Cabin was clean. We left on time and arrived on time, although the transfer from the port to the train station took longer than expected.

Trip and service fine, but it is a little busy and messy upon check in on the island. The facility is clearly over its max capacity. Taking that into account it all went well.

The boat trip was terrible, a quarter of all people vomit due to the bumping boat inclusief my Son and husband. It was a really scary trip. Rating 0/1 on 5. The bus trip after wich brought us to train station was Okay and well organised.

Really easy journey from Koh Tao with Lomprayah. We used Songserm and Lomprayah during our trip and Lomprayah are definitely more organised. We booked an overnight train journey from Chumphon to Bangkok and this is classed as a short journey by the Thai train company. This means that 12Go can only confirm your ticket 30 days before your travel. If you want confirmation up to 90 days before you travel you’ll need to ask 12Go to book a slightly longer journey that only costs a little extra Baht
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Aug 4, 2019
All perfect!!!
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Aug 3, 2019
At ko thao pier it was chaos to check in. No line up for the travellers to AirPort or bangkok. So the luggage was mixed up and once we arrived at chumphon Pier, we had to find our bags between about 100. However the ferry trip was windy but comfortable. De ride to the airport was horrible. De driver drove like crazy. It was totally irresponsible the way he drove the car. We signed up the number of the car, we are willing to give you this in a private mailing, to stop this man from driving.

Boat ride was not smooth , the crew was passing bags for people to throw up. Train was late on arrival of 3 hours

Very late and didn’t get dropped at right spot ended up at train station
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Aug 2, 2019
Very good service but it was a bit hard to understand when to get off the ferry. Because of a misunderstanding we missed our transfer to the airport. They took well care of us and directly fixed another transfer. The timing is not accurate as our ferry left 45 minutes late but all by all this is a very good service.

Check-in for ferry & ticket pick-up for train were quick and smooth - no complaints on the booking done by 12Go Asia. However, both ferry and train were substantially delayed, with staff and operators seeming to have no concern nor feeling the need to communicate about delays. Definitely take 12GoAsia's advice to leave 5 hours between flight connections! Our night train was 45 minutes late and continued to run later throughout the night and by the morning, was more than 1.5 hours past schedule. Usually trains are able to make up for lost time but not the case for this one.

Smooth trip

Great service. My only gripe if there is one is the long walk along that pier with heavy bags and no trolley available

It was just in time... bit stressfull. The bus was supposed to arraive at 17:20 and it was 18:00 and since the check-in balie would close on that same time... but i must say, they stayed open longen and we Made it. I only hated the stress.
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), May 28, 2019
Despite leaving koh tao on time in good conditions the boat/bus arrived over 40 minutes late meaning we arrived after the flight check in deadline. If it wasn't for the airline staff it would've been a disaster. We got no explanation or even communication from the company
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), May 18, 2019
i used lomphrayah ferry from chumphon pier to koh tao simply to minimize the time spent on water to avoid sea sickness. i didnt get sea sick at all, but thats my recommendation. there were lots of free spots on the ferry so there was no need to reserve ahead of time. the seats on lomphrayah were comfy enough and they let you take your luggage downstairs where you can keep an eye on it.

The boat delayed few hours
