We had to wait 1 hour for the connection to the pier. After we arrived to koh samui got picked up by a van and then changed to another van. in the middle of the way. Taking a full hour to arrive at the hotel. Besides that all went fine

The trip was good from the bus to ferry, but after that nobody picked me up at the pier then I had to take a taxi to my hotel although I had paid for “drop off at any hotel”.

Train was good.sleeping berths were comfortable. The food and coffee was terrible. I would suggest you buy snacks before boarding.

It should be more clear that it's not the ferry departing at 8, but the bus from the train station, actually it was more like 9. And the ferry arrived around 12, not 11. A more detailed time schedule would have been nice even though I know that we're dealing with Thai time.

Although I booked Phantrip Ferry but we are given the ticket of Seatrain. Apart from that trip was good

Guaranteed connections! Great service. I wish I had ordered something to eat at the cafe though, as it was just ‘junk’ food on the boat. Thanks:)
