From what I can see from the markings and original safety signs on the boats, it looks like they were once used in Korea or Japan, not China.

Could be Japanese, but the characters didn't look Korean to me. They are quite different to Chinese or Japanese. Perhaps Taiwan, rather than PRC.

It's been a long time, so memory may be wrong.

It's not about the destination, it is one company.

It's not the company it's the mind set that allows such a company to operate, and that affects the destination.

Pah, it'll  all be fixed ( again)  until the next death/incident when those  lucky safe tourists arrive at the Blue  Moon

That as well... but completely writing off Samui as a destination because of Raja's shortcomings is a bit wide of the mark.

Did anyone do that? Assuming Songserm is still in existence there are at least two alternatives to get there, and three if the catamaran is still going. Run by a company out of Khao San Rd, but I forget the name. It left from Chumphon.
