The van was comfortable cool on time and departure point was exactly as marked on the 12Go voucher. The driver was helpful and drove well. You will need a 5 baht coin to use the toilet at the departure point

We had a delay of 45 minutes and there was hardly any explanation. Furthermore, our family was split in two for the bus ride, which is less cosy..

The pier wasn't working, we came 14.30 pm. And thanks God we came an hour earlyer, because 15.00 came the bus and took us to another pier, the trip took 1 hour. If we would came few minutes after 15.00 we would miss our fare that had to be 15.30 from Lomprayer pier.

They have changed the pier and do not inform in advance about the longer trip.

It was a bit confusing when we arrived to ferry. It would be nice if they put some big tables with time and directions. So tourists wouldn't ask operators every few minutes.
