Kwan Chee Vee Tour

Quick company intro
Based in Mo Chit, one of Bangkok’s largest bus terminals, Kwan Chee Vee Tour are experts at running the popular Bangkok–Kanchanaburi route. Plenty of Thais and foreigners choose their services when heading out of the capital to the west of the country to see the infamous Death Railway and the bridge over the River Kwai.

All the vans are air-conditioned and hold a maximum of 10 passengers so it should be a more comfortable ride than with some of their competitors.

Routes served by Kwan Chee Vee Tour

Bangkok–Kanchanaburi

Kwan Chee Vee Tour focus solely on providing transport between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi and vice versa with 15 services heading in each direction every single day. Vans depart both Bangkok and Kanchanaburi hourly between 04.00-18.00 with journey times of approximately 3 hours. The price is THB140, the same in both directions.

All vans arrive/depart from Bangkok’s northern bus station, Mo Chit, whilst the Kanchanaburi terminal can be found at the town's bus station on U-Thong Soi 6, in the centre of town.

Pros
Kwan Chee Vee Tour offer earlier departures from Kanchanaburi than most of their competitors, which could be vital if you need to head back to Bangkok in order to catch a flight from either the city's Don Mueang International Airport or Suvarnabhumi Airport.

The information available when booking a ticket online is better than most other transport providers, you are given clear directions to allow you to find the correct ticket office in the notoriously confusing Mo Chit bus station. This is particularly helpful if you're in a rush! Even if you do end up missing your bus, with frequent departures on the hour you shouldn't have too long to wait.

Cons
Like many other transport providers across Thailand, the vans used by Kwan Chee Vee Tour can sometimes be a few years old so issues with air conditioning are not unheard of.

However, it has to be said that the vans used by this company tend to be of a higher standard than many other companies. There is not much that can be done to combat this, besides ensuring you get to the bus station early enough to secure yourself a seat as close to the air conditioning as possible, or a window.

Keep in mind
A constant issue with transport providers across Thailand is where you get dropped off at the end of your journey. Some companies routinely stop on the outskirts of town, forcing you to pay for a tuk-tuk to take you the last mile or so into the centre, which can cost more than the journey there in the first place! Kwan Chee Vee Tour ensure that this isn't necessary by taking you from Mo Chit in Bangkok to the very centre of Kanchanaburi. You know there won't be any surprise costs with this trip!

What travellers say
Customers are often surprised at the reliable service offered by Kwan Chee Vee Tour, with regular departures in both directions that run on schedule – something that can't be said for many other transport companies across the country.

The trips are also competitively priced, especially given the fact that once you arrive in Kanchanaburi you aren't dropped on a highway on the edge of town, having to rely on extortionate tuk-tuks to ferry you either to the bus station or directly to your hotel. Kwan Chee Vee Tour ensure that you are taken to the destination that you are expecting and have paid for, meaning it is far easier to find your accommodation, as well as saving you some money!

Some reviews complain about the necessity of purchasing an additional ticket for your luggage as there is very little room to store it. Unfortunately, the same system is used by the vast majority of transport providers across the country and there is little that can be done to avoid paying this charge. It may not always be needed though, for example, if the van is emptier than usual then there may not be a charge. However, this is always at the ticket seller’s discretion and you should expect to be asked to pay this more often than not.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Apparently the booking never reached the operator/ or they overlooked and sold over capacity. We were told that bus had an accident and hence we would be put on next bus. (1 hour Behind schedule). As I could see the buses were running all around on the scheduled times and from specified operator. Thankfully other transporter we were handed to, did have a bigger and better bus. So no complaints about that. But spending almost an hour and 15 minutes with a 2.5 yrs old was painful

Arrived to Mochit only ten minutes before my van left (as it recommends you be there 30 minutes before) and accidentally went to wrong side of station, help desk told me directions in english the best he could. Basically running over to the other side, once I got in the right building, multiple people were shouting where I was going. A bit overwhelmed, I made eye contact with one woman and she looked at my ticket and took me straight to the correct van. The van was packed, with only one seat in the back open, but they let me sit in front because I am very tall, so that was an awesome plus. The trip was quiet and a beautiful drive, the driver was good and very friendly. Definitely would only recommend to solo travelers, since I could see being with more people would be an issue.

The trip was safe and fast but we had trouble with taking our luggage. We had to take an extra seat for our luggage. We didn’t know. So if you travel with extra or big bags take an extra seat.

I arrived 4 hours early as I'd come from a flight from Cambodia. Despite the language barrier, I was told just to board the earlier van. Honestly, everyone was so kind and friendly. 3 hour journey was comfortable and exceptional value for money. Recommend jumping in one of these vans and enjoying the fab views.

The bus was scheduled to leave at 5 but actually left at 6 and as I was told to be 30mins early I had an 1.5 hour wait. But that’s just Asia for you and I was warned of delays when booking! Once we got going the journey was quick and the driver was helpful as I had a big bag and he found space for it to go plus there was good aircon so would definitely take this bus again.

Trip itself was fine, luckily I am well travelled in Asia and speak some Thai so I was able to ask for help. For non Thai speaking tourists who aren’t used to the “laissez-faire” approach be warned!! I’d actually recommend just buying minivan tickets directly at the station: much more useful and as minivans tend to run only loosely to schedule it can save you the stress of running around Mo Chit - Kanchanaburi trying to locate your specific bus as you can just catch the next bus that comes along rather than rushing. Try and travel light. Bus itself is fast, comfortable, and the drivers are as helpful as they can be for non English speaking (which is very!). Top tip: google translate the name of the town you’re heading to so you know what word in Thai to look for on the box office/vans. Get travel sick tablets (10B from the 7eleven) before you go as the journey is mountainous! It is a faff, but it means the only European you will see all the time you’re in Kanchanaburi/Sangkhlaburi is yourself (if you’re not European, you won’t miss us ;) !!) Which is worth the journey for the “real” Thai experience.

It is quite difficult to find the departure point. The car was cold because of air conditioning. On the other hand good and quick and cheep transport to Kanchanaburi.
