Everything is perfect except for the air conditioning on the bus. If you are sitting next to a window it blows constantly on you. In order to not get sick you have to cover your head with the blanket they provide. If this AC condition is fixed, this is a five-star service.

ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Oct 28, 2019
Had a more pleasant journey for the same price Bangkok - Koh samui with Raja ferries. With Raja we were told in detail what would happen during our travel, so that we always were informed (we traveled by bus and ferry). But with Songserm we were many times left clueless unless we asked ourselves. Starting in the office in Koh Samui we got our tickets and no further direction where to go. So we walked out and saw that there were two piers outside the office, which led to us going back to ask for which pier we would had to go to. (We discovered that our pier had a sign which said Songserm when we came closer to it though). At the pier we asked one of the employees what do then we saw some people waiting and some employees there too and we were not sure if we should wait there or walk out to the pier. The employee looked at our ticket and answered that we should just wait. After a while one employee shouted out the name of our ferry and told us to walk down the pier. Turns out our boat stops in the middle of the pier, which we didn't know and we sees the employee running and shouting after one of the other passengers to come back, then he had walked too far.... well on the boat we were asked by another passenger (and saw other people in the same clueless situation) if the next stop was our stop, then there were no speakers. Turns out it was the last stop. So we walked out and were led to a building where we had to confirm our tickets again (which we didn't have to do with Raja). There we were informed that our bus would pick us up a bit over an hour. (With Raja we had to wait 10 minutes for the ferry, and the bus drove from Bangkok!). Then around one hour later a bus arrived (no information about this bus were given) so people got ready and in line, before they told us that this was the bus to Krabi and not our bus to Bangkok... so we got out of the line and waited for our bus. We got on our bus at approximately 5 pm and our bus were scheduled to be in Bangkok at 5:30 am. With Raja we had no breaks during our bus trip (except for waiting an hour on other passengers to board an hour after we boarded which we were told in advance). On the bus with Songserm the lights went on at midnight, the bus stopped and a guy shouted that we would have a 40 minute break (at 11:40 PM!). In total we had a worse experience with Songserm than Raja.

Everything went smooth, just be prepared to drive from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and than to the mainland (Chumpon), where the busses wait. For the lack of the detailed information about the itinerary only 4 stars.

The staff at Koh Samui airport were really friendly and helpful. We were moved to the earlier flight as we arrived at the airport early. The airport also had good WiFi and complimentary drinks and snacks. Our flight was meant to board at 13:50 but we did not hear anything regarding the flight until 14:15 - so for a while we had no idea what was happening.
