Journey from Koh Tao to Koh Lanta took us about 10 hours and had quite a few steps. We bought our tickets from the office at Mae Haad Pier the day before our departure. We decided to try another company – Lomprayah and paid 1300 baht each. The ferry was scheduled for 6 am, so at 5:30 am we were up and ready to go. While entering the boat you are provided with a sticker with the name of your destination. It should be placed somewhere visible. Lomprayah boats are smaller and faster, when you add a very turbulent sea, you will have me suffering from my first motion sickness episode. Trust me it was the longest boat ride I can recall, even though it only lasted about 1.5 hours.
