Punctual departure from Southern Bus Terminal Bangkok

They were very punctual

I can't remember this trip, which is good - that means that nothing out of the ordinary happened, and the ride went along as planned.
Bus VIP 31, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Jan 13, 2020
Booking on 12go was easy within the app but my personal preference has always been on the web. The bus was clean and comfortable with snacks and drinks provided. There was a toilet onboard, hence no need to do many stops. Bus reached the destination on time which is a lot better than when I traveled on the train from Hat Yai to Bangkok, it was delayed for more than 2 hours!

I've had better.
Bus Express, Siam Lane Tour (สยามเดินรถ), Dec 17, 2019
Really enjoyed the trip. Large comfortable seats good air con plenty of room. Extra things not expected were the free water and goodies given at departure. Also a stop at a rest area for a 20 minute meal also free. Our first trip by bus in Asia certainly not our last. Also very easy to book. 12GoAsia website easy to use and very informative. Made it all very easy.

The bus has a toilet.13 hours trip, 30 minutes break only once. They offer blanket, water, snack. The trip was comfortable.
Bus VIP 24, Siam Lane Tour (สยามเดินรถ), Jul 25, 2019
It left a little late but we arrived an hour early. The bus stops all the time for various reasons but you can’t get off. In 14 hours we were allowed off once at 2am. There needs to be a couple more times you can get off.
