I accidently leave my jacket. Contacting 12go customer support, not helpful response. But I finally managed go get in touch with Koh Tao Booking Center officer, Khun Su, who managed to retrieve my jacket and kindly send it to me. Thank you khun Su!

1. We had a rough trip due to bad weather. Many people felt very seasick. No bags for vommiting. This has nothing to do with 12GO. 2. Toilet is a standing toilet / you can’t sit. Very inconvening during storm. Later we noticed that on the other site was a sit-toilet. 3. Ons site of the ship has normal beds, the other side has not!! We could not chose for normal beds because the ship was full. The beds/matras on the oorthermometer side are 60 cm width. No space between the matrassen!!! Laying in a row. Close to each other. Like in a prison. Also the blankets: 60 cm. No communication about these facts by 12GO. Suggestion: beter communication on accomodations on different ships.

It is a very very old ferry, they leave us all on mattresses next to each other and they are dwarfs. If you don't arrive in time to check in, you may find yourself outside the air-conditioned room and literally outside, with the sound of the engine. But hey, you arrive safely and you can sleep.

Beds themselves were quite hard yet comfy and we got a decent sleep, we were next to the air con so a jumper was useful. Boat staff were very helpful unloading bags to the pier which was great as there were a fair few coconuts to climb over on the way off!

I could sleep easily on the night boat, it was really comfy. However the AC was on 16° through the whole night, bring warm clothes

We were driven by the manager as it was new year and there weren’t many drivers. He was really friendly and helpful. The map is wrong on 12go. Just follow the boarding point in the email confirmation.
