This is my second time taking the sombat bus from Chiangmai to Khon Kaen. Bus is very clean, with snacks and water on board. Seats no smell and was provided a blanket and neck support. Also has usb charge. Service from the steward is very good. Driver is careful. Departure and arrival on time too. Will definitely travel with sombat in the future

bus Express, Phet Prasert, Nov 19, 2018
The trip was exactly as planned, we even arrived a little early. The seat was very comfortable and we even got some drinks and snacks and a blanket. That said, the A-C was on way too hard so now I have a cold :’)
