Ferry Catamaran, 12Go Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Jan 1, 2022
Best bus trip ever, Bangkok - Koh Tao. Its comfy, roomy and the people working for Lomprayah were very kind and helpful. I did have the vip ticket though, but definitely worth it. Make sure to wear a longsleaved shirt and pants since the busses are airconditioned. But there will also be blankets if you travel by night. Half way along the trip there is a +/-30 minute break, to use the bathroom, eat or smoke a cigarette. Only slept one hour, but i didnt expect a full nights sleep. Then continued by boat (2 hours) - if you travel in times of harsh winds and you have a squeazy stomach, make sure to take a plastic bag (but they do hand out bags on the boat also), better not eat before boarding and try finding a seat where you can look at the horizon, that also helps with the not-vomitting. At some point people WILL start throwing up - and then the chain reaction starts ... but I very much enjoyed the trip!

Ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Dec 25, 2021
If you can sleep on a bus it’s a great way to save on accommodation and travel time. Have dinner in Khaosan and then jump on the bus at 9:00. Gets to the pier around 5:30-6:00am and the boat leaves around 7:00. Got to Kho Tao around 9:00am

Ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Nov 28, 2021
It was a 10 seater mini bus and not a bus like it usually is, so no sleep. The speed boat was like being on an hour long roller coaster. Got there though...

Between the lights, air con temperature and noise, we spent the whole journey with our eyes shut but zero sleep.

It was a Nice trip and everything went smoothly. Except from that it was very cold on the bus and i couldnt control the Air condition. Even with a blanket and a sweater i was still very cold and had trouble sleeping because of it.

Its a long journey but train was comfy, bus was great & the transfer to koh tao via speed boat was bumpy but not toooooo bad. The train was delayed by 2 hrs so the connecting bus at 6am was well timed by 12go. (However the journey to Tao via Speedboat is based on your luck and the weather. Try to book a ferry ticket if the ferries are running to avoid seasickness. Not 12go’s fault tho!) 12go’s customer service was also very helpful. Thank you!
