Everything was perfectly in time

Franchement, je ne sais pas si il y avait d’autres solutions pour nous rendre à Krabi mais c’était vraiment bizarre comme expérience. De 9h à 16h30, nous n’avons mangé qu’une demi boîte de Pringles (payante). Nous avons attrapé une angine dans le bus (une climatisation à 20ºC alors qu’il faisait 35 dehors), pas de toilettes dans le bus.

We were supposed to be on the ferry from 9pm-5am. The ferry arrived at 3:30am. We were woken up by a foghorn. We then had to wait two hours to be picked up by a mini van. At 6:00am we were taken to Chumphon town centre and had to wait here until 8am for our next van. At Chumphon we were taken on a taxi which virtually took us around the corner to another station. At 8am we were taken to another bus station in Surratani to wait until 11;00am. At 11:00am we were taken to Krabi by mini bus. The driver decided to do his own errands along the way and really squished too many people into the car which was very uncomfortable. We asked if we could stop at a toilet service station which we did, but only at the end of the 2.5 hour journey. While the driver went to the toilet a random Man Approached the van and proceeded to say that this service station for the toilet stop was the bus terminal and so we would need to pay him 100 baht to get to the bus terminal. The taxi driver was very pushy. Our bus driver proceeded to unload our stuff. Everybody on the bus protested and explained that we had already paid to the bus terminal as per our ticket and this service station was not the bus terminal. Luckily somebody on our bus had been to Krabi and knew exactly where the bus terminal was. It was throwing it down with rain and the bus driver had decided to put all our bags in the puddles of rain on the floor soaking our bags. So not only did they try to scam us they soaked our bags. Eventually they took us to the bus terminal. Really really disappointed. We wish the Lomprayah night ferry wasn’t broken as we will never travel with this company again. As for the night ferry the beds were comfortable and there was air conditioning which worked really well. But these are the only positives everything else was chaos!

I took a night boat so that I do not waste time in transfer. The personel was kind and helpful. However instead of arriving at 10am, as was sold on 13Go, I arrived at 4pm (1 boat + 2 vans), which then make the whole thing not competitive compared to a day speed boat + van (Tao - Surat Thani - Krabi). We actually made a detour by going Tao - Chumphon - Surat Thani - Krabi.

It was a super exhausting trip, an old bus, a horrible bathroom, with no stops, it was very very hot. I was sick with the heat inside the bus, there were endless hours on the bus. Ferry ok!

information was slightly lacking at each interchange.
Ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Feb 27, 2020
It isnt clear when you book it but you have to get 2 ferries with an hour stop over in Koh Phangan, not everything was very clear but it all went smoothly and once we arrived in Krabi they also arrange a mini van to take you to your hotel for 150 baht
