The air conditioning was not cold enough,
Bus VIP, Sawadee Esan (สวัสดีอีสาน), Nov 16, 2022
Not comfortable and not suitable for long distance. Though some snacks are provided and there is also a toilet available. Too warm to sleep in as well and not enough leg space.

Bus interior a bit tired, but overall a great experience. On time, driving felt safe. Super - lovely bus lady. Nice food stop, complementary food served way better than expected. Would love to rate 5 star but bus was a bit used, no fault of the staff. Thank you for a great trip. Recommended..

Missed to communicate with bus driver & bus servant due to no English language they’re understood/ speaking. Wifi missed LCD/ TV ???? not working Otherwise all over it’s good
Bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour (บุษราคัมทัวร์), Aug 14, 2019
The trip was as expected,the staff on board we helpful. The only complaint is I booked a vip bus at vip price online but it wasn’t a vip bus and the tickets printed out when we arrived at the station showed that, so I payed about 200 baht over price . And the other complaint is the toilet. Don’t know how it was on top deck but we were sat below and the toilet is at the back . We had the continual smell most of the journey, my wife had the blanket over her head most of the time to avoid breathing it in.

Morchit/Bangkok bus station was for a foreigner, incredibly difficult to navigate. Maps are more or less non existent so it's essential that you ask around to make sure you're checking in at the proper window and getting to the correct platform. And in our case the bus didn't even park at the platform indicated on our ticket but luckily where they did arrive was right near by. On the bus ride we had quite a lot of leg room on the bottom level and were provided with snacks, bottled water, and a small meal. AC works great too, so much so that it actually gets a bit chilly but we didn't mind that at all. Overall good and affordable for getting to Nong Khai. Bus driver will ask you too where you want to be dropped off so be prepared with providing your final arrival stop.

The service left Bangkok 30 minutes late but arrived on time. The bus was clean and well maintained and the staff were pleasant. The driver drove safely. Seats were comfortable. I have no complaints and would use this service again.

Some of these other reviews crack me up. Like these fools were expecting some kind of livery service. This is a cross country bus in In Thailand! Its a lot better than some busses in other Asian countries but you need to keep your expectations low.
Bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour (บุษราคัมทัวร์), May 7, 2019
Food and snack were great. Very professional. Bus broke down for about 2hours. We still made our next bus on time.
