About Sueksa Tour

Company Information

Sueksa Tour is one of the main operators connecting the northern cities with the Isan region in Thailand. The company is based in the major city in Isan, Udon Thani, with plenty of routes up to north-eastern Thailand and towards the borders with Cambodia and Laos.

Routes served by Sueksa Tour

All the buses on routes operated by Sueksa Tour are VIP buses so you know you'll be travelling in comfort.

Udon Thani to Lampang & Lamphun

From the operator’s base in Udon Thani, you can travel to both Lampang and Lamphun. There is one departure each day from Udon Thani to both destinations (leaving at 20.30 and costing THB840). It takes around 10 ¼ hours to reach Lampang, so you are due to arrive at 06.40, and it’s an 11 ½ hour trip to Lamphun, arriving just before 08.00.

Udon Thani–Chiang Mai

You can also catch services from Sueksa Tour in Chiang Mai. There are daily departures from Chiang Mai to Udon Thani and Nong Bua Lamphu (both leaving Chiang Mai at 20.30 and priced at THB 840). It takes approximately 12 hours to reach Udon Thani from Chiang Mai, so you'd be due to reach your destination at 08.20. Nong Bua Lamphu is slightly closer to Chiang Mai, taking 10 ¾ hours and arriving just after 07.00.

Chiang Mai–Nong Khai

A very useful route for those heading from Chiang Mai to Vientiane in Laos. There is one night bus leaving Chiang Mai at 20.30 and arriving to the border town of Nong Khai before 9.00 the next morning, in time in case you are planning to get to the Thai consulate the same day. Tickets cost under THB900.

In the opposite direction from Nong Khai to Chiang Mai the bus leaves at 19.00 and takes just under 12 hours to get to the destination.

Pros

One of the best things about picking Sueksa Tour is the complimentary food and drink you receive when you arrive at the bus. You'll be given a snack and a bottle of water but then you'll also receive a hot meal later on. This is usually a meal purchased from a street food stall so could be pad thai or something similar. Unfortunately, they don't really cater to different diets, so it might be worth bringing something extra if you have specific dietary requirements.

As all the vehicles used on routes by Sueksa Tour are the newer, roomier VIP buses, these trips tend to be much more comfortable than a journey on a regular bus. There are fewer passengers aboard so it's quieter and you're far more likely to get some rest during the night. Also, there is a good deal more legroom than on other buses so you can really stretch out and have a nap.

Cons

Unfortunately, there are no charging ports on board these buses, this can be annoying when you have a long, overnight journey. It's always best to make sure your phone is fully charged before you leave, in case you need to use it once you reach your destination or if you need to contact someone in case of an emergency.

Most of these VIP buses have a shared TV at the front of the bus and not the individual monitors that you might get on other vehicles. It can be a little aggravating having to listen to the television if you want to read, relax or sleep but it is switched off at around 22.00, along with the lights so it isn't too much of a hassle. Make use of the quiet during the night to get some rest as the lights do come on at around 06.00 and it can often be fairly noisy in the morning as passengers get on and off the bus.

Keep in mind

It can get a bit chilly on buses during the evening, especially as the air conditioning is usually kept on throughout the night. The good news is that Sueksa Tour offers you blankets at the beginning of the journey so you should be fine.

Travellers reviews

Passengers can sometimes find the shared TV onboard a bit disruptive, especially if you find yourself sitting underneath a speaker. But this usually only lasts a couple of hours at the start and end of the journey so you can still get some much-needed rest during the trip.

There are plenty of positive reviews about the comfort onboard these services and it really is worth paying a little extra to travel by VIP bus as you'll have more legroom and a much comfier seat!

2 Plätze unten hinter dem Fahrer sind optimal. Viel Platz. Warme Sachen zum Anziehen nicht vergessen. Düsen für die Aircondition lassen sich nicht komplett schließen. 2 oder 3 Stops unterwegs sind ausreichend. Lunchpaket kann man vergessen...

3列シートでリクライニングも大きく倒れるので、快適でした。ルーイには予定時刻より早い5時に付きました。席まで来て起こしてくれました。 ブランケットもありますが、タイのバスは全般的に寒いので1枚余計に羽織るか持っていった方がいいでしょう。

+ : Safe driving, on time, easy booking on 12go and smooth process /// - : Less comfortable than expected and hard to get a good sleep. A lot of light and frequent stops. I slept bad and arrived tired. The driver collects 40 BHT at the end if you want to stop at the border instead of the bus station in town ; which would be cheaper than transportation from the bus station to the border but this looks quite informal. The meal was just junk food, eat something before if you book this bus. /// If you go to Vientiane : keep 20 BHT fo the bus on the bridge. Then just after the tuk-tuk drivers there are white-green buses that go to the center for 8,000 KIP.

Chiang Mai to Laos - Nongkhai (Border) - very comfortable Bus with much free room for sleeping. One star minus because the Air was too cold. Bring warm jackets.

Énormément d arrêts sur la route, mais pas forcément pour vous laisser le temps de vous dégourdir les jambes ou vous restaurer avec autre chose que la maigre et tres mauvaise collation (uniquement des friandises sucrées). N hésitez donc pas à vous restaurer au préalable. Ces multiples arrêts (entre 20 et 30) rendent par la force des choses votre trajet plus long mais pas moins penible.

29.01.2019. Un autobús muy cómodo y amplio en comparación con los que he tomado hasta ahora. Te dan agua y dulces para desayunar. Fuimos desde Chiang Mai hasta Nong Khai. 100% recomendable.

Bus uralt. Sitze waren OK, dicke Decke notwendig da auch für Thai Verhältnisse extrem kalt. Das Klo war leider sehr schmuddelig und nach 1 Stunde am stinken. Lunchpaket gut aber kein Stop. Vip war hier nur der Preis

Die Fahrt war angenehm und sehr ruhig. Das Begleitpersonal freundlich und es wurden zu Beginn Snacks und Wasser für die Fahrt serviert. Kurz vor der Ankunft gab es Kaffee und ein Erfrischungstuch. Die zur Verfügung gestellte Decke brauchte ich, weil die Klimaanlage im Bus sehr kalt eingestellt war.

Très bien sauf ma place à la porte d'entrée...Plus jamais.... Odeur des wc, obligé de lever mon siège quand d'autre montaient dans le bus alors que tu essaie de dormir.... Vraiment c'est la mauvaise place. En revanche pour le reste c'est l'un des meilleurs bus que j'ai pris. Beaucoup d'espace entre les jambes et très bon service

vip busを予約。バスはとても綺麗で厚めの布団、軽食、水が支給されました。バスにはトイレが有りましたが狭く床が水浸しで利用を躊躇しましたが12時間一度も途中休憩無かったので我慢して利用しました。座席はかなりリクライニング出来きゆったり出来ましたが仮眠ぐらいしか取れませんでした。旅費を抑えたい人にはいいと思いますが寒さと睡眠不足は覚悟が必要です。

Good in general ☺ Too cold, but OK with the covers. Well surprised with the small package of food :-) Toillet could be better!... Not happy at all with the price, charged higher than it was supposed, including travel insurance that I did not ask for - grrrr !!!!! :-(

Very comfortable and roomy seats. They recline very far for sleeping. Noisy so bring earplugs. Good service but the snacks are all sugar so many people cannot eat them. I am afraid many are wasted and thrown in the trash adding to Thailand’s trash problem. Good driver and attendants. I would use again but bring my own food. Thank you.

Seats were really comfy, and they reclined almost all the way back. Drive was smooth and the driver stopped a few times to have a break for 10 minutes, which I think was really good because there's no way he should have to drive 12 hours straight. Didn't sleep much but that's no reflection on the journey.

Driver was very safe. Seats were much more comfortable than an airplane. But, the so-called dinner was a bagful of processed sugar junk food. Really revolting and an insult to good health. For such a long trip, a hot meal should be the norm: rice, vegetables, noodles, etc.

The bus seat was slightly uncomfortable, but nothing major. The driving was good and safe, water, food, blanket was provided. No socket to charge your phone through though. The driver collected an extra 40 baht from everyone at the end, I don't know why since I don't speak Thai. I didn't pay but all the Thai passengers did.
