Tourists report being robbed on the way to Koh Tao

Last week a couple who travelled from Bangkok to Koh Tao on a Songserm bus / boat packaged reported being robbed en-route. The young couple told the police that all the money had been taken from both of their bags and their hand luggage that had been stowed on the floor beside them. Due to the location of the luggage the only feasible explanation for the robbery, the couple surmised, was that they were robbed during their sleep. After a report went out about the young couple, on social media others came forward with similar stories. One comment on the story read “it’s been going on for about ten years now”, another reported that he knew a man who had his money, dive gear, passport and credit cards only a few days prior to the young couple, a third poster said “I got robbed on the same bus first time I came down, I stopped at Khao Lak though. There is someone inside the luggage compartment, half way through the journey, the bus will pull over somewhere random, the driver gets out, the guy from the luggage gets out, and then gets onto another bus going the other way. Been going on for years here.” A link warning of the dangers from Trip advisor was also posted by a disgruntled client.
