About Hat Yai World Tour

While some travellers feel skeptical about vans, a good choice of destinations and competitive prices make vans one of the most popular means of transport for others. Vans are always more flexible than big buses. If there is a sudden request for rides to some new destinations, van operators are always the first to offer their service. Indeed, it is easier to launch a new route if you operate a vehicle of 10-15 pax capacity, isn’t it?

Hat Yai World Tour operates van service and offers tickets with easy online booking. Check them if you are looking for options to travel by van.

Pros & Cons of Van Travel

Pros of Van Travel
  • Vans often reach the destinations where neither buses nor trains travel. These include secondary towns and smaller villages
  • In most cases vans are the fastest way to get to your destination if travelling to relatively short distances overland simply because they are smaller than buses and more maneuverable
  • Vans can let you get off at a more convenient point enroute – not necessarily at the terminal, what actually can save you loads of time and money in some cases.
Cons of Van Travel
  • Some vans can be quite cramped with limited space for luggage available. Well, actually almost all vans offer limited luggage space and if you have more than one bag, suitcase or backpack, it may be a good idea to buy a separate seat for your luggage – yes, you will pay double for your trip, alas
  • It is worth checking if your van runs on schedule or leaves when full – in the latter case you may end up waiting too long as on several routes it can take quite a time for a van to fill up.
  • You should know that van drivers are notorious for their speedy driving. Even the most reputable companies sometimes fail to persuade the drivers to respect the speed limits. Even if your van driver does not insist on it, always buckle your seatbelt while travelling by van
  • If you easily get seasick and your trip includes winding stretches, chances to feel motion sickness are higher while travelling by van than by bus. Take your medicine half an hour before your trip to be on the safe side.

It was ok. The bus picked me up at 10 from Ao Nang, but then took me to a bus station 15 minutes away where I had to wait for another van that didn't leave until 11:30? Why couldn't they have just picked me up at 11:15 instead, it was bizzare. Then we all had to change into a 3rd van about halfway. Having said that, we all got there eventually and the van itself was nice, driver was friendly etc. At the end of the day you get what you pay for, a private taxi would have been far more expensive.

Pick-up time was over 90 minutes late; contact claimed there was no record of my booking; 3 different vans were used... Did arrive 'on time' tho-- I can now understand why they allow themselves 4.5 hours to make the trip!

De driver liet ons op de hoofdweg uitstappen. Hij bracht ons niet naar het hotel. We moesten de laatste 200 meter lopen.

Pickup time was 8am. I was supposed to be in the hotel lobby at 0730am. Actual pick up time was 0910am. It would have been more appreciated if this was communicated beforehand. Waiting period in Krabi was an hour and therefor actual arriving time was 1300. Driver from pickup location to krabi was driving to fast.

We were picked up at 8.05 am, then collected a few other passengers. Then we drove to Krabi Town with a short stop for food in the middle. There, we were transferred to Krabi Pier, where the driver paid for the boat. We then took a boat to Koh Jum and had to get off on the first stop. A longtail boat collected us from there and brought us directly to the beach in front of our hotel. We arrived at around 13:30. No extra cost, people were very friendly and let us always know, what's next.

Driver came 45 min. Later than agreed pick up time. And when we should go from the ferry to the smaller longboats in order to get to koh jum, they insisted that we needed to pay an extra 100 bath per person, even though 12go Asia guarantees no hidden extra fees.

When you are booking it says that is only a minivan, but is not true, you go in a bus to Krabi that takes 2h30, there you wait 30 minutes and they start to separate people in minivans for a 20 minutes ride until your hotel

Good trip. Pickup was on time at hotel. Van went directly to Hat Yai, no changing vans or detours, just one comfort break. Good, efficient driver. Van was full but comfort was ok

We were put on the wrong boat which was not what we had booked and paid for. We were dropped at Railay Beach West which was not a pier and we had to get in and out of the boat with backpacks etc. We also then had the additional stress of trying to work out how to get to Railay East where our accommodation was. Not what we paid for.

I travelled with my daughter and a luggage. It was an 1-1,5 hour break in maintime.. But was ok. The only Thing is I bought 3seats as of the bag I was carried. Other pasangers didnt Follow and Img 3 seat was occupied for a person..... That is not fair.

Very unorganized. I think I was in a total of 4 different vehicles. Also two of the four drivers were very rude, drove erratically and one of the vans literally had moldy seats.

It was very good to get informed from the company on the day before the trip. We were picked up on time. The trip took about 7 hours from Ao Nang to Kohipe. For the expressboat I suggest ear plugs, it's pretty loud. Generally it was well organized without any complications.

The pick ups in Khao Lak went smooth and the journey to Krabi took less time than scheduled, including the transfer stop near our final destination (the hotels in Krabi town). After a stop of about half an hour the passengers were assigned to other minibuses for the last 5-10 minutes of the transfer. At this point the operator offered to bring me to one of the slightly more remote hotel at an extra charge while this hotel was in the drop-down list off drop off hotels on their website... The company has a hotline service which operates through WhatsApp. Very convenient and they respond quickly. While booking I made a few mistakes and I managed to correct it using their hotline WhatsApp. Possibly I asked a bit too much from them because as I said they were not willing to drop me off free of charge at one of the more remote hotels that was in their drop down list. The mini fan was older than average but still ok and the driver drove safely.

A van picked us up at 10am. But then we waited for 2 hours to change to another van. Wasn't efficient at all - we could have arrived 2 hours earlier

Pick up from the hotel was quite on time. We went to Krabi where we had to wait for an hour at the Hat Yai office/station, before we were put in another minivan to drive us to Ao Nang. This was a very old minivan without airconditioning. The distances were not so very far, but because of the waiting time at the office/station and the fact that you can be lucky or unlucky with the location of your hotel (are you dropped off first or last?), the whole trip took very long.

The transfer from the boat to the van was not clear at all. No one was waiting and no clear signs were in place to find them. Also the van driver was very unprofessional. We spent one extra hour on the road because he kept stopping to talk to friends on the way and he even errands

A good value trip even though I paid for two seats in case of luggage problems but the Hotel collection was much later than promised. Driver found a difficult to locate hotel and made sure it was the right one before leaving me.

So they didn't have our hotel listed on the hotel list to chose from so we basically just chose the closet hotel to us and went there to be picked up around 10am. They arrived at 10:15 and there were already people in the car which made it a little cramp but not too bad at all. Went to pick up a few more people after which made it more cramp but we somehow manage to fit in comfortably. Afterward we went to a bigger station where they check our tickets again so make sure to keep a printed copy of your ticket. They will give you a sticker and call out your location when a different van come to pick you up. During the way to Phuket Airport we stopped at a rest stop to use the restroom and get refreshments. Afterward it was on the way to Phuket Airport. The ride wasn't too bad at all, time actually passed by pretty fast. Overall for the price it was a good deal. Don't expect anything fancy. I never really do when it comes to visiting other rural countries. The point is we were able to get to our location correctly and the time was not too bad either.

Too less information about what is going to happen. Noone said that we will be taken to a “hub” - place where they are filling up vans with people randomly. Not how much we need to wait. But the trip itself was good. P.S. Need to pay extra 100baht if you want to be delivered straight to hotel.

I booked a minibuss rids from Ao Nang to any hotel in Khao Sok. Instead we went by van to the bus stop and wanted for an hour. We then took a really old dirty bus to a bus stop outside Khao Sok and had to pay a driver for getting to the hotel. Not what was promised.
