The bus journey starts with a short trip to the car ferry, where you and the bus will board separately for the 90 minute crossing to the mainland port of Donsak. The ferry is large, stable even in the roughest sea conditions and undergoes regular safety checks by the Thai Royal Navy. There is plenty of seating on board, air conditioned areas, plenty of outside deck space, toilet facilities, a reasonably priced snack shop and even massage services.
Once you arrive in Donsak, you’ll get off the ferry and get on the bus again at the end of the pier.
