Passenger reviews out of total 2,222 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The ride was smooth and lead us to our destination on time. Small scattered islands welcome you to Langkawi and is a great sight after looking at vast expanses of water. The only criticisms are that: 1. The air conditioning was too cool and most passengers were freezing. 2. The window panes are tinted and make for a much less clearer view.

The staff and trip were efficient but we were packed in like sardines and our bags were just set in a huge pile. No music, no WiFi, nothing to do or see for 2.5-3 hrs. The bathroom was gross - no paper, no seat, and the door didn’t close all the way. That said, it was inexpensive and we arrived on time.

This was exactly what we expected. It is a great way of travelling to Langkawi without worrying about planes. You see all the outlying islands on the approaches. Our boat was very full, staff friendly, only slight criticism is the way luggage is handled. A real free for all. Take your own drinks. There are toilets on board. Takes about 2.5 to 3 hours.

Trip was comfortable and efficient staff was polite and helpful A little bit of a bottleneck diboarding and getting luggage. Suggestion : get every one off the boat then bring their luggage and packs off for collection on the dock or pier. Thanks and definitely the best way to get from Penang to Lankawi

Not too bad. Was late. The old jetty needs to be upgraded with a cafe and better air conditioning. It is difficult to get any view outside the windows while seated.

It was very fast the check-in at Air Asia counters, but the flight was a bit delayed and there was no information nor staff around to ask about the timing. For the rest, excellent and fast flight!

On round trip both time it reached an hour late. Secondly no refreshment like drinking water available in the ferry. It may be more tourist journey with some sight seeing.

We arrived in Langkawi 30 minutes later than expected. The boat is a bit old, toilets are terrible and quite a lot of people were throwing up (you could hear them as the bathroom walls are not very thick. I was seating in the back of the boat and it was very cold. What can I say, it was not the best service but we made it to langkawi!
