Koh Tao to Phuket destination reviews

RM
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Mar 3, 2020
Travel from Koh Tao to Phuket with lomprayah was extremely frustrating and took way longer than it should have. They don't include any information about the itinerary on their website so you have no idea what to expect. We were on a really nice ferry from Koh Tao to Koh Pha-ngan but then we had to get off and wait on the pier for an hour for another ferry that was smaller and horrible. The bus pick up in Surat Thani was fine but the bus took over 5 hours to do a 3 hour drive and the main floor smelled like an outhouse. We also had a stop at a little shop but were not told how long we were stopping for. The staff could do a way better job of sharing information with their customers.

It was long. They could have informed the schedule so we could eat before. There is no break from the boat to the bus, maybe 10 min for the customers get some food for the road would not hurt. First bus stop was 2 and half hours later.

Everything went smoothly. Comparing it to a recent trip that was a disaster. Here the staff was welcoming, they gave out information in speakers, baggage handling was good, connection to Phuket went great, they stopped for food. Taxi was waiting for us. No complaints besides that it left 30 min late
