Bangkok to Chumphon Destination Reviews

The bus smells really bad
Bus VIP, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Nov 8, 2023
Pro: -Bus was comfortable, cheap and there were even some snacks and water. Cons: -The whole bus smelled like pee once the toilet door was opened. -Unfortunately we stopped multiple times an hour without any obvious reason which led to a total drive time 8 instead of 6,5 hours.
Bus Express, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Aug 10, 2023
Comfortable buses, strong AC but not too cold as long as the sun is out. Delayed arrival, due to a large part of dropping off passengers at various points of the journey.

What a great service. Easy booking and great bus ride to Chumphon. It was easy to navigate the bus terminal and found the ticket booth quickly. The lady was kind and helpful at ticket booth, the driver was great and so was the guy loading. We got a snack, juice and water as soon as we got going and we stopped after about 3 hrs where we got a lunch which is included in the price. The ride was comfortable and pleasant. It was a longer ride than expected, 8.5 as opposed to 6.5 but we really enjoyed it and appreciated the friendly service. Thank so much!

The trip was ok, could have been great though. The bus was very comfortable and left pretty much on time. The AC was set well. We got some snacks. The drivers were very nice, they even have us 3 Baht (coins) for the bathroom at the train station, even though there was a toilet on the bus. The toilet on the bus became a problem though. About 3 hours into the ride, there was a bad smell on the bus. Apparently there was an „accident“ with the toilet. We changed buses in the middle of nowhere. The new bus was a lot less comfortable and without toilet. Everyone got 100baht cash back. We did a 20min stop for toilet and snacks. We arrived 2 hours late in Chumphon.

Very smooth travel, comfortable bus
Bus VIP, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Mar 8, 2023
It would be nice to know the exact location of drop off. But good service besides that.
Bus VIP, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Feb 22, 2023
Snacks, blanket, good temperature. At one stop you could eat buffet style for free
Bus VIP, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Feb 20, 2023
We were randomly dropped off at the side of the road and not the bus station despite that being the ticket we had bought. The toilet wasn’t very clean. The chairs were quite comfortable and the air con was nice and cold. Overall the value for money was good, the journey was just tainted by where we were dropped off as it felt like the tourists were just kicked off the bus in the middle of nowhere. It was also an hour late for no discernible reason.
