- About us
We currently have two well established & reliable operators servicing the Bangkok to Koh Tao route, namely Lomprayah & Songserm.
Most would agree that Songserm, being the cheaper option is best suited for the backpacker or traveler on a lower budget. The VIP coaches used by both companies are similar double deck buses; the big difference however between these two companies is the ferries that they use.
The Songserm ferries are older than and not as comfortable as the Lomprayah Catamarans.
The Lomprayah Catamarans also have very nice and quiet V.I.P areas upstairs; if you pay a little extra to upgrade there, you can really relax and enjoy the journey.
The journey time from Chumpon to Koh Tao is just 2 hours with lomprayah, the Songserm ferry takes around 4 hours.
