The service was great, the only bad thing was that the hostess of the bus speaks only thai.

Excellent bus trip. Superb service. My only disappointment is that I found out afterwards that much cheaper buses do the same journey but weren't offered as an option on 12goasia.

De VIP bus is goed te doen. De stoel was fijn en er was genoeg ruimte voor mijn benen. Midden in de nacht eten had ik niet echt de behoefte aan.

Bus was great, we got all we were told we would get. However the stop off had only one vegetarian option which was tucked away in a corner and was just tofu soup and due to taking a while to find, we didn't have time to eat even half before the bus was calling us back. If you are going to wake up at 2am for a meal, you want to at least be able to eat said meal. Otherwise fine and got us in 2 hours before schedule.

The hostess only spoke Thai. She literally throw the beverages in my lap. She was not friendly. The travel went very quick. We were there in 10, not the expected 12 hours. Seats were fine. Leg room okay. The blanket was fine.

Bus was ok with nice big chairs. Toilet was nice and tidy. Good administration with labeled bags and meal vouchers. Easy to find the ticket counter and right bus. Dinner stop after midnight was not so nice since halfway during sleep! Bus also arrived too early on destination which left us too much time to be spend in our hotel lobby...

An sich eine super organisierte Sache mit dem Bus über nach fahren. Allerdings war die Reisebegleitung sehr unfreundlich. Daher 4 Sterne

Surprisingly good trip! Seats are large and have leg rests, much more comfortable and easy to sleep than planes. Managed to get quite a good sleep, the lights we were warned about are turned off quite fast and there were no loud movies playing as some predicted. The toilet was another pleasant surprise - it was clean and totally fine, even had toilet paper. Would happily travel again this way. Also we arrived even earlier than others have mentioned - by 5.45am.

Quite comfortable overnight ride. Only not so great things was the forced break at 01.40am (let the passengers sleep) and the over punctual arrival at 06.15am instead of 8am. First world problems and better than being late, but Kanchanaburi is not a buzzing hot spot early in the morning. :-)
