Left on time, they served dinner and breakfeast you could buy. The dinner was okay, but the breakfeast was not. The seats were fine, but when it was made to a bed, the bed was really hard. Overall a fun experience and a great way to travel.

The bus arrived a bit late then the designated time but it had our reservation and after that it was all very fast. We got in the bus and went to pier, in the pier there was another check point where we needed to show the pdf. The boat left shortly after we arrived and in 2h we were in Koh Phi Phi

14 hours straight to spend times on train without any break for food or smoking. Toilets should be changed. Not a comfortable space to use for WC.

Overall better than expected. I took the overnight train in May, the temperature hits 40x but it is cooler in the night, so the fan and open windows made a little differences. Toilet was okay and drinks were offered a couple of times throughout the journey. The seats not super comfortable and the light stays on, other than that-value for the money.

An original experience! Don't forget to bring eye shades, as the lights are always on at night. The bunks are less suitable for people over 1m80.
