More stops than expected, so more then half an hour later arrival. Also very bumpy. But you get used to it, after to hours.

The “speed” boat was nearly 1hr late at the Bang Rong Pier :( we were told to meet at Railey Pier East but then we’re out into a long tail boat (poorly explained by the staff what’s happening), to get to another place to get on the truck, then to get to Ao Nang ferry pier where it all felt chaotic with the bags being put on the actual speed boat and people cramming into the boat. Overall it wasn’t a good experience.
