Krabi to Ko Phangan Transfer

16th February

Our transfer from Krabi, as expected, was not without incident. We knew the night boat from Surat Thani wouldn’t depart until at least 10pm, so we suspected our departure on a bus from Krabi at 4pm (for the 3 hour journey to Surat) had an ulterior motive. When we arrived in Surat Thani, at 7pm, we were deposited at down a dark street and ushered into the only restaurant. We were told to wait here for transfer to boat, and eat. We knew that there was a night market near the port, and that was where we presumed we’d be able to kill a couple of hours. The bus company had other ideas and once we told them we were going to walk to the market (we knew it wasn’t that far away) they started to get very annoyed with us, telling us that we couldn’t go by ourselves.

We managed to persuade them to take us to the port, where we found the night market with great food, and free WIFI to download some new music and films! The night boat set sail at 11pm, and having bagged berths 1 and 2 again, we settled in for a good nights sleep!
