To begin with, the double decker bus was comfortable for an approx 2 hrs ride till the pier. The mismanagement began at the pier when we boarded the ferry. It was the shittiest ferry we had ever seen in thailand. There was no staff to assist for baggage which we had with us through the entire journey. No one instructed on the ac compartment. Wish everything was instructed and directed for. Not a good experience

Personel kept smoking and smoking on the lower rear deck. Every time the door from inside to outside opened a huge stinking cloud of cigarette smoke entered the seated parts. Disgusting smell.

By far the best way to reach koh phangan/ samui/tao. It costs a little more than the alternatives but it is more than 2 times faster and much more comfortable.

Everything left on time and we were able to grab an earlier bus to the harbour. But this bus driver drove so unbelievebly dangerous. People and even children were trown from left to right, over bumps, not cool. We asked him to drive slower and safer but he ignored and wanted us to catch the 16:00 our boat. We would have waited a bit longer as long as the drive was safe. The rest was of the trip was fine.

Although it was not clear to us that the primary point we met, was not the final and we were brought by busses to the pier, the rest went very smoothly with the sticker system

Lompraya Ferry was highly organised & efficient. Staff greeted us as we stepped off the train & ushered us across the street to their office for check in. Their large luxury bus was waiting to take us to the ferry. The ferry waiting area was really nice, it had seating, food stalls & very clean toilets. The ferry was great & the staff were very friendly & helpful. All in all a very well run operation, highly recommended!

Good minibus and ferry. No complaints about them. Air conditioned and comfortable. 1.5 hour wait at ferry port though, but that's okay

When I arrived at Surat Thani, I could take an earlier boat while I booked for a later time. This was very convenient. The bus ride took around 2 hours. It was ok; there was air conditioning. At the pier I had to wait around 30-45 minutes for the boat. There are stores and restaurants for if you’re hungry. The boat ride was also ok. Comfortable seats and a convenient store on board. The boat ride through Phantip was really old though, but I didn’t mind. Took around 2,5 hours. Overall: I found Phantip being ok. Not super fast like Lomprayah but you pay more for that. At Thong Sala: terrible. Taxi prices start from 300 for a ride that would cost 100 in Bangkok. On the island there are no taxis so plan the last part of your trip carefully.
