Since travelling is one of the best things in the world and a bad experience gives bad memories I would like to prevent everybody for a bad experience during the full moon party by sharring my story.
Last month I went with 7 friends to Koh Samui and we wanted to go to the full moon party. We booked a ticket with RS Tour & Travel to get to koh Phangan. The pick up at the hotel was at 21.00 but they came at 21,45. The minivan was to small for the number of people and people had to sit on the floor.
When we arrived at the "pier" we noticed the big crowd of people and the small number of "employees". We have been waiting from 22.00 until 01.00 to get on one of the 2 speedboats. After waiting the last hour half way in the water and again missed the boat because of people jumping the queue we decided to go back home. On the website of the tour operator it says that you can get a cashback but that is not true. A lot of people decided not to go and the thai people didnt want to give the money back and a little fight started. One of the thai people went to his car to get a KNIFE to threaten a Russian guy.
Eventually it took us again a half hour waiting before the minivan got us back to the hotel.
In the end it cost us a full night and 800 baht each to get from the hotel, back to the hotel empty handed.
Please people do not book with this tour operator. Be smart and get the ferry to Koh phangan!
