Lomprayah from Bangkok to PhaNgan

Posted by lampostx on 5/12/2006 at 01:43

hi all, looks like Lomprayah has a promoton on their website that allows us to get from Bangkok to PhaNgan (or Samui et al) for cheaper than the usual train/bus/ferry combo. They look like they run their own buses.

Question - any good or bad experiences with Lomprayah? Would you recommend them? It looks like the journey is by bus to Chumpon, then catamaran over.

I was originally going to take the overnight train to Surat Thani way, but this is looking like a better option ... ?

Thanks,
Fionna

The Catamaran is excellent -- very comfortable and fast. I can't comment on the buses though as I've not used that part of their service, but the boats are great.

Thanks, somtam!!

Do you think it's reasonable to catch the 10:00 pm train from Hualampong to Chiang Mai that same night? The Lamprayah bus arrives in Bangkok at 8:30 pm. I figured that if we jump on a cab right away and head for the train station, that we should have enough time, and that would save us a night's accomodation in Bangkok. Do-able?

Sure that is doable -- plus there's later trains than the 20:30 departure, so if you miss that you may be able to get a seat on a latter one.
