Not suggest for old person, hard to having deep sleeping on the bus and ferry. However, this will be new experience for traveler. Provided Coke Zero, water bottle and small cake. I think it was enough for supper. And the ferry arrived earlier to island at 9:00. So I had more time to discover the island.

Bus Express, Raja Ferry, Feb 28, 2020
Офис компании удобно расположен в районе улицы Khao San. В нем можно оставить вещи, если есть необходимость и Вы выехали из отеля утром. В офисе есть туалет и куллер с питьевой водой. Мы покупали комплексный билет автобус-паром-такси до отеля на о. Самуи пляж Ламаи. Автобус не VIP, в ряду 4 сидения. Автобус комфортный, сидения откидываются удобно. Есть подставки под ноги. Водитель отделен от салона стенкой. Автобус был загружен на половину, так что места было много. С кондиционером проблем не было, охлаждал в меру, Можно было закрыть обдув. Автобус отъезжает из офиса в 20-00 и далее до полуночи без остановок. В начале первого ночи (или около того) остановка на пол часа. Стоянка имеет фудкорт (в полночь конечно работало не все, но перекусить можно было) и полуоптовый магазин (типа МЕТРО). В 6 утра были на пристани. Паром отплыл в 7 часов. Далее два час на пароме и мы на Самуи. Дальше нас ждал микроавтобус, который и доставил в отель на ЛАМАИ за пол часа. Итого от Бангкока до Ламаи 13 ч 30 мин. Резюме: вполне комфортная поездка. При необходимости готов воспользоваться еще раз.

It was a little higher on the cost side but the reviews I read was very true. That's why I am putting my review. Service is just excellent. Go to Lomprayah office in Bangkok, get the tickets, they will guide you to boarding point, the in between stoppage was also good. They treAt you very well. Will have to wait for an hour at ferry point, but eating and resting points are available. Catamaran is very speedy, and convenient, almost 5 hours sea route. Whenever I will come, will book this only. Go for it.

Everything was smooth, comfy seats on bus, basic services on ferry, we arrived on time at Koh Samui. 30 minutes break at some point on the way. Food wise, they gave us free water and a small sandwich which is good but they can improve this part for sure, considering that it's a long journey.

Everything was good. Bus is a bit old but ok. When we stoped to eat it was late night already and everybody was sleeping so you don’t need to turn on bright light and loud say that we can go eat:) Came to Samui earlier than on schedule

Very well organized. I was a bit unlucky with 4 babies / todlers in my sleeping compartment on the night train, but that hasnt got anything to do with 12 asia. The train arrived 1 hour late but the bus and ferry where waiting so not a huge delay in the end. Would book again
