Koh Tao to Koh Lanta Destination Reviews

NO
The journey was on time. We got on the ferry at Koh Tao. The ferry stopped at Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Samui (we didn’t have to get off or change ferry) before stopping at Donsak Pier (the pier on the mainland). Just follow where everyone else goes. 30 seconds after you get off the ferry you walk to the parking lot were someone will take your ticket and direct you to the bus. The bus stopped halfway for 5 mins so people could use the toilet. It dropped us all off at Krabi Town. We waited for 20 mins in the Seatran office for the taxi van. The taxi van dropped us off in Saladan Pier on Koh Lanta. Everything was very efficient just make sure to bring warm clothes for the ferry :)

Everything went well. The only thing I can suggest is to let people know what and where they are suppose to go or to do. So we were going from Koh Tao to Koh Lanta. It would have been nice to know that we stop to Koh Phagnan where we needed to change boat and then stop to Koh Samui. We took a big bus from Bonsak to Krabi which we tought we were going straight from Bonsak peer to Koh Lanta but no. And then change bus at Krabi to get a mini van to get to Koh Lanta. Everything went well but no one tells us anything so we have no idea what to do when. For example: On one of the boat we weren’t allowed to take our bags ourselves out of the boat. They wanted to take all of our bags and pile it on the peer and then we grabbed our bags from the peer. Ok fine. But the next boat we needed to do it which is perfectly fine with us. We would like to know what you guys expected from us. But the rides were smooth and great. And we got to destination only 1:15 later than expected so that’s good.
