Bangkok to Kanchanaburi Destination Reviews

Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Nov 27, 2021
I was too late to catch my bus. The lovely lady at the terminal just put me on the next bus without charging me!
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Oct 28, 2021
We left 20 minutes ahead of the time which was good but we lost this advantage in the second part of the trip. The bus stopped several times, some people boarded just for a few kilometers, it looked like a local bus. Because of the detours and numerous stops, it took us 2h45 to arrive, despite the fact there was no traffic. Much too long. The bus was bigger than a van which was good but it was not super comfortable, little space for the legs.

The bus left 30 minutes early, and arrived 1 hour ahead of advertised schedule

Driver was nice and other staff. Bus left a little early as soon as ticketed customers boarded. They did a head count. Quick and uneventful... perfect !

Perfect, Thanks
van Van VIP 9pax, 12Go Transport (12Go Transport), Mar 12, 2020
Le bus (un van) était vraiment "tape-cul". Je ne sais pas si c'est dû au bus (je pense que oui) ou à l'état de la route.
van Minibus, Win Happy (บริษัท กาญจนบุรีเดินรถ 81 จำกัด), Mar 4, 2020
We arrived early for the bus and they let us leave early no problems. We paid for 3 tickets for 2 people and all our luggage which was also no problem. It wad pretty quick and the driver let us know when we arrived at our stop. The bus smelled a little and there seemed to be alot of mosquitoes on the bus that came from no where. Other than that it was pretty decent.
