Krabi to Koh Samui Destination Reviews

Ferry Ferry, Raja Ferry (ราชา เฟอร์รี่), Mar 5, 2021
We left almost 1 hour before the initial hour which is very good. From Krabi to Surat Thani town it took around 2 hours. Therefore, I arrived at 11am and I had to wait until 4pm to take a bus that would take me to the ferry (1h away from Surat Thani). I was told that if I wanted to leave earlier I had to pay. Then I was told the ferry was leaving at 6pm instead of 5pm. And as it takes time for all the cars to get in and out, I arrived not before than 8.30pm at Lipa Noi instead of 6.30pm. this company is not reliable in terms of time.

Ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Mar 11, 2020
Couldn't say. Due to not reading carefully I was already in Surat Thani the day before. So instead of going back to Krabi I asked the lady of the Lompraya Office on the phone if I could get up the catamaran on the pier. She said no and sorry no refund since we were going the next day. I told her I did not call for a refund, but to get on the catamaran on the pier in Surat thani since we already paid for it. No sorry, she said. Guess she didn't understand English very well. Next time I will book directly from the office while I'm in Thailand instead of half a year before thru internet.

We were very late arriving and the bus driver spent a large amount of the journey on the phone and driving very slowly because of it. The ferry was good once we got there. Bus ride was not good
