Koh Tao to Surat Thani Destination Reviews

BS
Very organized. In truth, we were not left at Tapee Pier but rather a Pier called THE PIER. Then there were a number of buses at the pier waiting for you. We went directly to Surat old town and the bus terminal area.

About 40min delay, which was acceptable, but no clear instructions on which boat to get on eventually (multiple boats were arriving and departing while we were waiting). Waiting area is crowded with no place to sit. Because of the delay departing koh tao, we missed the connection at koh phangan. Again, no info from the operator where to go. After asking around, we found out there were speedboats waiting to take us further (unclear where they would bring us exactly). Ride in the speedboat was fine and we were brought to a different pier near Donsak and got on the operator's bus. We presumed that would take us to Tapee pier (Lomprayah) as we had booked, but we were dropped in Surat Thani city center instead! No arrangements to be taken to Tapee pier. Lucky for us our hotel was close by, so we did not have to pay a taxi to take us much further.

There was a boat there was a bus in the end we got there……only the timing was about 2hrs behind schedule. So you will get there but do not plan anything tight.

The boat was delayed three hours! The staff on the boat also had no idea where to go, in the first instance we were told to transfer in Koh Phangan, then we had to change again in Koh Samui. Because of all the hassle we would miss the taxi we booked separately. Contacted 12GoAsia by email and they were fantastic! they informed the taxi driver that we were late and when we got there three hours later than agreed, the driver was just waiting for us! really great!
