Long but easy trip from Samui to Phi Phi
Make sure you don’t have luggage if more than 20inches as you pay extra as these have to be placed on the seats in the bus due to the luggage being too big for storage in the luggage compartment of the bus
Ferry trip is almost 2 hours but most enjoyable.

We got from A to B.
The second Van was full of people and luggage, so it wasnt a very comfortable 3 hour ride. We also arrived almost an hour later than the ticket said. But the rest was fine.

It is nice that the arrange a long trip like this but after the first switch of the van we got a speedy driver and a van with the back chairs which were moving when accelerating and breaking. Also the last ride with the van was rushy for some reason.

The mini van was full of people with very big luggages so all of us traveled in very unconfortable positions, with 0 space around us (bags in the middle of the corridor). The driver did some stops that we did not understand without telling nothing to the people inside the minivan. We also did 3 changes of vehicle to reach the second ferri and one of the changes toke us 1h waiting in a bus terminal of phantip.

We booked a trip leaving at 11:45 and arriving at 17:00. we were contacted that the time was shifted to 8:30. When we arrived we were told that we were at the wrong pier. A heads up would have been great there.
When we got to the Pier in Krabi at 15:00 we realised that there was no speedboat to take us to Koh Phi Phi and we were put on the regular ferry arriving at 17:00.
Ordinarily this would not have been a big deal but we paid extra for the faster travel time.

Hat alles geklappt auch die Weiterenfahrten mit Bus und wieder Fähre. Durch die Stopps kam es einen auch nicht so lange vor. Waren jedoch in Phi Phi gut 1 Stunde später angekommen.
