Ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Feb 25, 2020
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.

van VIP, Phantip 1970 (พันทิพย์ 1970), Jan 27, 2020
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.

Smooth and easy process. Paid by debit card. Booking was instant. Getting to ticket physical counters, you just show your booking confirmation on your phone and they print your ticket.
