Niomit Tour

Quick company intro: Niomit Tour is a bus company in Thailand. The bus company operates from Bangkok’s Southern Terminal and Ranong bus station. Ranong is a small border city in the south of Thailand.

Routes served by Niomit Tour:** There is a daily bus from Bangkok to Ranong that leaves at 9pm and takes roughly 9 and a half hours. The prices depend on the class of your ticket with a choice of VIP and VIP24 and is from THB500 and to THB700. The bus back from Ranong to Bangkok is scheduled to leave at 8pm.

There are two types of coaches available with Niomit Tour: VIP24 and VIP buses that can either accommodate 24 or 32 passengers and offer a range of good facilities.

The VIP24 bus offers passengers a lot of space in terms of seating. Soft reclining seats are comfortable and you can easily sleep in them. At the start of your journey you will receive a pillow and a blanket, plus some light snack and drinks. Food is offered later on during the journey.

All buses are air-conditioned and provide entertainment TV-program which can be an issue as the sound is sometimes too loud.

In Bangkok, Niomit Tour have their headquarters at the Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok (Sai Tai Mai) on the 3rd floor, where their counter is located. You can buy tickets directly at the bus station or it is also possible to book Niomit Tour tickets online.

Pros:
Niomit Tour offers great service with clean buses and comfortable seating, whether you are taking the VIP or VIP24 bus.

The VIP24 buses offer more legroom, enough even if you are tall, and are used for the overnight trips between the two destinations with the seats reclining to around 70 degrees.

Stewards on board regularly come round to make sure that everything is OK. They also distribute snack and drinks at the beginning of the journey and later on. Feel free to ask the stewards if you have any special needs – they are helpful and will do their best to assist you.

They also provide sleeping attire like blankets and pillows that make your trip that extra bit more comfortable.

The air-conditioning is just the right temperature and the buses are usually on time and you even sometimes arrive earlier than what is suggested on the ticket.

Cons:
Do not expect the staff to speak any English. Because of that they may look unfriendly

Always double check the platform number indicated on your bus ticket as it is often changed and you risk to miss your bus!

Try to avoid sitting at the back as it’s hotter and bumpier and some drivers are faster than others when going round windy roads.

Note that at night the lights are switched on every time the bus stops at the bus station en-route, so an eye sleeping mask can come handy if you want to sleep.

Though food is served during the journey – either on board or in a food court as the bus stops, it is just an ordinary rice and curry variety and it can be hard to get a vegetarian dish if you need one.

Keep in mind:
Niomit Tours only night buses – no day buses are available. Travelling by night helps save you the daytime of your journey and is a popular choice in Thailand.

Niomit Tour gets good reviews from the travellers and is recommended. It provides good ratio between the price of the tickets, the level of comfort provided and the time of the travel.

What travellers say
Most of the reviews that we have seen are positive. The possible issues you can encounter is arriving prior to the scheduled time which is sometimes inconvenient if you want to check in at a hotel immediately; and smelly on board toilets which is actually a common problem with many long-distance buses.

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.

definitely book the vip24 bus, it is so so much better than the crammed old vip32, where you get sore legs. it was raining at night while we drove and there was a leak in the roof at my seat, so it was dripping water onto me the entire journey. didnt sleep at all, all my things got wet, not so great with the a/c blasting. bus makes one stop for food, but nobody ate. driver's made a 3 more stops to pick up other things and buy gas or water. but no other people got on the bus.

I paid for vip24 but they made me travel on a bus older than at least 15 years compared to the one in the picture. the staff spoke out loud for at least half the trip. at ranong we arrived at 6, not at 7:30, the staff did not adequately warn the passengers that we had arrived, I asked for the pier anyway and they told me to wait for the second stop. the second stop was a garage for the exclusive use of the company, here all the taxis and tuktuk offered rates for the transfer to the pier more than doubled (50 bath) and even speed boat packages for the islands, more than inflated. be careful, the feeling is that the company avoids to get you off at the first bus stop because they work together with the drivers.

I have been taking VIP24 buses for years and while they are slowly getting worse, this trip was definitely the worst. It was like a bus from Khao San with slightly bigger seats, a clean blanket and stale snacks. The driver was driving the bus like it was a motorbike, we bounced so much I spent at least 1 hour of the 10 hours suspended in mid air above my seat, people were vomiting as we skidded and tilted from side to side, one of the lights broke, and 5 mins before we arrived the steward literally threw cold towelettes at us. I’ll be flying from now on. What a shame. I used to love the overnight bus.

Booking via internet with 12Go, picking up the tickets at the station and being helped onto the bus went fine. A bit disappointed by the bus itself, we had the VIP24 and it had certainly seen better days! The interieur was Just as deteriorated as the exterieur of the bus. Where as the bus next to us, the VIP36 was brand new and shiny! journey went as expected in Thailand, stopping off here and there to deliver post and picking up flowers on the way, don’t expect too much shut eye on the bus. The driver was very steady and we had a comfortable drive. One last tip.... our bus stopped at the the terminal, not the station or ferry, you had to take a taxi to get any further.

We had a good ride down to Ranong. The bus was more than on time that we could catch the earlier ferry. It was comfortable and the time went by quite fast.

I really enjoyed the service from start to finish. From the baggage check to the stop off midway and final destination, the staff was superb! Polite and kind and very caring. The driver was an obvious professional with a big smile and a very safe driver. I cannot say enough about his professionalism. The seats are comfortable with a lot of room. The overhead storage was a little tight but our larger carry-ons fit nicely at our feet. The "meal" is a snack and would be better presented as such. A box juice and a bun stuffed with taro or bean paste, but not a deal breaker by any means. The only reason I do not give five stars, and for me a very important factor was that several times on the journey starting right out of the gate, the hostess, in an obvious effort to keep a pleasant smell on board so not at all her wrong, used an air freshener that had a very strong chemical odor and left me several times unable to breath. It filled the cabin and lingered a long while. I have a strong sensitivity, bordering on allergy to these types of products. Something a bit more natural would be appreciated. But otherwise, everything was great.

Seats were nice, and overall the trip was very good, but the toilet was terrible! You could smell urine in seats behind the toilet. For 8-hour trips you must have a better toilet or customers will stay away.
