Sleeper ferry was great, but my seat in the mini van had no leg room and was super uncomfortable.

Ferry to Koh Phangan, then speed boat to Surat Thani, then bus to Krabi. The bus stops at Lomprayah Krabi office, then a mini van will take you to Ao Nammao Pier and finally. a longtail boat will take you to Railay East.

The trip was great, the ferry took about 3.5hrs, nice boat with AC on the mid-deck, mini-shop and good toilets. Bus trip to krabi was easy too. Although, no toilet break was given before boarding the bus or the long tail boat in krabi (staff rushing travelers), so in total we were made to wait about 4-5hrs between toilet breaks (not good). Other than that the trip went well.

Ferry, Bus and minivan have been on time ... but the staff was pretty unfriendly almost rude the entire trip.. they need to learn they work in the hospitality business, if I can avoid Seatran to travel with I will!

On the last step of the trip the long tail boat driver wanted to upsale to a private trip. The rest of the trip was fine
