After having a wonderful time in Koh Phangan, We headed to Krabi from Koh Phangan again with Lomprayah because of their good service. It is a combo service of bus and ferry. Here are the details of my journey experience with Lomprayah from Koh Phangan to Krabi.

1. Check in at Lomprayah counter at the Koh Phangan Jetty
2. Wait at Koh Phangan Jetty shelter to for High Speed Catamaran Ferry boarding

We received ferry ticket and brown sticker to put on our luggage. This is for the convenience of Lomprayah staff in recognizing passengers' luggage while loading and unloading them at the island's jetty. Passengers going to other destinations like Surat Thani and Phuket would receive different colour tag. We also received another transfer voucher for the van transfer service from Lomprayah (Krabi) Office to our hotel in Ao Nang.

3. Boarding the High Speed Catamaran Ferry leaving for Surat Thani Donsak Pier
The High Speed Catamaran Ferry arrived at 12pm sharp, and passengers started boarding the ferry. We rested in the ferry because the journey should take about 2 hours. High Speed Catamaran Ferry is fast and stable even at the rough tide condition.

4. Arrival at Surat Thani Donsak Pier at 2:00pm
The High Speed Catamaran Ferry arrived at Surat Thani Donsak Pier at 2:00pm. The Lomprayah bus was already on standby for journey to Krabi. That is the reason why Lomprayah has good reputation online because of their seamless service arrangement for passengers.

Special Note: Please note that there were few other Lomprayah buses which were on standby for journey to other destinations like Phuket. Please check the cardboard sign carefully to board the right bus.

The Lomprayah bus is a comfortable double-decker bus with seat configuration of 4 seats in a row.
