Phuket to Ao Nang Destination Reviews

KR
It was my first experience on a speed boat. There was no visible signage for the company when we arrived at the peer. However, once we found it, the service was excellent. On the boat, I did not enjoy being cramped with visibility only if you stand up or if you are the lucky ones in the back row. Once again, we appreciated when the driver announced there was seating in the open front (with the luggage) of the boat so we could enjoy the scenery along the way! When we got to AoNang we had to walk a little ways so we could be sent in the transportation to our hotels but it went smoothly. It took about 3 hours to get from the pier to our hotel in downtown Krabi.

It would have been good to know that you have to get off with all your luggage and change over and that there is a wait of 1.5 hrs- ok but would be good to know before. Also this was not air conditioned ride so misleading- just would have been good to know beforehand as my expectations were different!

The boat was too full. Too many people and too much luggage. Very uncomfortable. They sat very closely together. The fact that there was a stopover was not specified at the time of booking. I will never book again.

Driver could not find our hotel in Patong for some time though I provided an accurate address. I received several calls from 12Go in this regard and even handed my phone over to a Thai speaking person at our hotel so she could give directions. Once we were picked up our (3 hr ride) was fine.

Important! Not good if you have more than one backpacking pack! There is little room for baggage in the mini bus. Every seat but one was full, and every person had at least one large luggage, and some had 2 large luggages. We all only fit because my partner and I purchased 3 seats - that third seat was put down and used for several stacked bags. If you are traveling with a large luggage, purchase an extra seat and be assertive in safeguarding your space. We were not assertive and ended up in the back seats smooshed against everyone’s luggage despite having paid 3 seats for 2 people. The operator was kind and took us directly to our hotel for no additional fee; if we could have communicated I’m sure he would have helped us with the discomfort.

I booked with transfer to aonang beach. The driver was not servicial, not speaking about smileing. The feeling that he's transporting mercancy and not people. At the entrance of Krabi, he stopped and prended final stop. We were 5 passanger, told to him he has to continue till the beach Very bad service
