Krabi to Koh Phangan Destination Reviews

Everything was great. We arrived with lots of time to spare for the ferry. Took a fifteen break on the way, so the journey was fine. Also, I was stranded by a no-show pre-reserved taxi to pick me up from my hotel to the bus stop. A phone call resulted in my being picked up from my hotel by the bus that we travelled to Koh Phangan on, which cost a lot less than the originally reserved taxi. Therefore, it was all super easy.

The staff at Phantip are really nice. The trip was spot on. The bus journey was really comfortable in a mini bus with air conditioning. The ferry wasn’t that great as it’s quite slow and you have to drag your bags up some stairs. Lots of room for a chill on the ferry though. For the price a reliable way to get to Koh Phangan from Krabi.

Easy, comfortable and (relatively) on time bus & ferry from Krabi to Koh Phagnan. One of better experiences on Thai transit carriers.

The pick up from the airport was good, but it all went wrong from there. We were picked up around 9.40am in a van and taken to a small Seatran office in Krabi Town and there was no toilet, so I went to an adjacent restaurant, but it had no toilet facilities and the cook hadn't arrived, so I couldn't buy food either. We left there around 11am and drove a short distance to the Seatran depot where we had to wait in the bus for around fifty minutes for other passengers to arrive. Just before we left, we were told they were running late and there would be no stops. We eventually arrived at the pier at 2.40pm where I had my first toilet break since about 9.30am. When I checked in at the pier I was told we would be changing ferries at Koh Samui. We actually changed to a Lompraya ferry which appeared to be grossly overloaded. We eventually arrived in Koh Phangan around 6.40pm...our scheduled arrival time was 5pm. I understand there was an issued with a ferry, but it still wasn't good enough. All that time without food and toilet breaks until we arrived at the pier. Unless it greatly improves, I wont use Seatrans again. There were also smaller issues like broken seats on the ferry and many people having to stand on the leg from Samui to Phangan. I should also add that the bus driver and escort gave themselves a toilet and cigarette break on the side of the road, but we couldn't leave the bus... the door was broken and tied closed.
