New Lomprayah Office

Those looking for the Lomprayah Office in Thongsala at the pier will be scratching their heads. It has moved, and is no longer at the pier near where the boats arrive and depart. But don’t panic – it is nearby.

For many experienced Koh Phangan hands the Lomprayah Catamaran service is by far the best ferry option for getting to and leaving Koh Phangan. The catamaran’s are well maintained and comfortable inside. Moreover, they are the fastest boats plying the Gulf of Thailand. You can knock an hour off travelling time by using Lomprayah. For the few extra Baht the Lomprayah costs compared to other ferry companies, this is money well spent.

The new Lomprayah office is near the Post Office in Thongsala. For the exact location see the map below. The office is well laid out. There is a counter to purchase tickets as well as plenty of seating for those having to kill some time before getting on a ferry. And, as you can see from the picture above, they have spent a bit of money on new signage!
