The van trip was fine. But the boat trip by Baanpun Travel was unacceptable, my booking was become invalid, we were delayed, .e & my wife had to endured 2,5 hours stuck in Pakbara Pier, with no prior information that will be delayed, not even water we were given, I have to stand in front of the counter to get into the next boat. I urge you to switch your boat trip vendor from Baanpun Travel to another company.

Everything was fine but tiredness. The staffs working at the Prabarra Perrier didn't all speak English well caused some confusions on requiring perrier tax. The boat boarding process was a little unorganized, crowd and misaligned up. Wish the boat provided any paper bad in case for sea sick.

The journey from the airport to the ferry was excellent. The driver was very good and careful. The experience with the ferry was terrible. I had to wait for over two hours, staff did not communicate the reasons for the delay, when asked questions they gave false information. The boat did not go directly to Lipe but stopped twice on the way delaying us even further. An awful experience!

I could not find anyone from the company and walked all around the Hat Yai airport asking questions- I had the voucher in hand but it’s details were limiting. The hotline was inoperable/busy. It was bad. I took a taxi to Pakbara pier so deserve a refund GR what I paid for van service. At the pier, I found the boat counter ok and navigated that ok.

Minibus rid from airport to pier was fine. Speed boat stopped 2 times on route to Koh Lipe. Stopping at Turatao and Koh Khai needlessly for 15 minutes but causing a delay of 1hr. Friends arriving the next day were delayed 3hrs due to speed boat congestion at Turatao.

The ride and transfers and staff were good, but none of us knew that we would be stopping at two islands on the way from Hat Yai to Koh Lipe for no apparent reason whatsoever. We were then an hour later arriving at our destination than was advertised. The reason I booked this was because of the timing. They should advise when booking that there will be two stops (they say 15 mins but it’s double that each time) made in the East and adjust the arrival time.

The van from the airport to the pier was ok, but the boat OMG was dead. It was overcrowded, 2 times more people than it should have carried. I did not have a seat and had to stand up the whole time - extremely uncomfortable. The biggest problem is safety! How can you carry 2 times more people than you should?

The booking experience with Jolly Travel was okay and the driver was at the airport on time wiating for us. He waited quite a long time before he left the airport which meant we left a bit late. He then drove like a madman to Pakbara Pier. I had my 2 children with me in the van and I honestly didn't think we would make it alive. He drove so fast, nearly crashing into several vehicles. I was not very happy at all & will not use this service again. The speedboat stopped at 2 islands which meant we arrived at Koh Lipe very late. We even had to wait a very long time on one small island as the customers just took off and walked around the island The staff need to be precise about how long people have on the islands if they are going to stop. The journey was quite brutal as we were very packed in and my daughter really suffered as a result. Overall it was not a very nice experience.

We made it to our destination on time, but as others have said, it could have been smoother. Van picked us up much earlier than scheduled, then picked up another couple. We then met another van and had to squeeze into that one. In the end, we went back past our hotel. The pier was confusing. Like others, driver said one thing, inside they said another, but were very abrupt. Make note - go up to the desk to get your number. You are going to board by number, the earlier, the better. Our boat was also packed. And for some reason we made 2 pitstops of 15 mins each. Not sure why. We’ll see how the return goes...

Van was excellent, quite new and comfy. The arrival at the port a bit messy but we knew the way from a previous time. I guess if it was the first time will be confusing to get from the boat club till the port. At the waiting in the port we got the check in done, not more info of what was going on or why it was a bit delayed. After we got to the boat the trip was perfect. Plenty of space on the boat, and a fast ride. No stops on the way and we made it to lipe on time.

L'accoglienza in aeroporto è stata ottima,Il transfert dall'aereoporto al porto non è stato dei migliori, l'autista del van guidava dando dei brevi colpi di acceleratore e poi lasciava di colpo per tutto il viaggio, andare a scatti non è il massimo per chi patisce il mal di auto... non ne capivo il motivo ma se continua così il van, che era nuovo , avrà presto dei problemi.....dal porto a Koh Lipe il viaggio è andato bene con il motoscafo veloce in un paio di ore siamo arrivati

Had a fine 2 hour transfer to the pier in a minvan with 5 others with one comfort break stop along the way. On arriving at Pak Bara it then gets a little more disorganised. First you queue at the Jolly Travel shop where you show your booking and get a booking slip. You then walk across the road to the pier pay 20 baht entry per person, and then 200 baht fee pp for the national park. Inside you then exchange your booking slip with the relevant boat company who then give you a numbered ticket. You wait around and then are lined up in number order according to your ticket for getting on the boat. Don't hang about as if you get on first you get the pick of the seats. Then it started to get annoying, we left 20 minutes late and after going for about 40 mins stopped for an unscheduled 20 min break at a random jetty. There was no communication about why we stopped or how long we would be there. After setting off again we then stopped at a random beach for 20 mins, again no explanation at all. What is the point? The entire boat signed up to get to Koh Lipe, not to go sightseeing on the way. We arrived at Koh Lipe 40 minutes late. I would happily have paid more to go direct and cut out the faffing about.

Excellent and reliable service! If you are going from Hat Yai Railway Station to Koh Lipe they will pick you up between 8:00 and 8:30. The meeting point is outside train station entry gate. If you are waiting in one of the nearby cafes they will find you anyway :)

van VIP, Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai, Jan 17, 2020
Smooth pick-up. No problems. Good service. However, at Pakbara there was no direction given. There are two desks at the front of the pier. Tourists are waved off in the general direction of the pier and rely on other tourists and hope they are in the right line. The minivan driver said to go to one gate but the information at the reception desk was to go to another gate. Confusing. Tourists were stood out in the sun and lined up according to number before boarding. No big deal but it might be worth noting that many tourists are pale and we burn in the sun. Finally, the boat was overcrowded & there was little direction given in seating people. If you're going to number the people, maybe they could number the seats.
