Arriving in Chumpon in the rain after midnight, I booked a ticket to Koh Tao at the Farang Bar & Guesthouse. This included explicit instructions that a taxi would pick me up to go to the dock at 6am for the 7am boat.
My first taxi didn’t come.
Come 6:30, i fogured I should starts being enterprising myself and flag another down. My second motorbike taxi didn’t know where he was going, and went to 3 different docks asking directions. So I missed my 7am boat.
Instead I am taking the 1pm fast boat at an entirely different pier. And I have to lay in a beach chair and stare at this scenery for 4 hours.
Life is harsh.
