Bus Express, Songserm (ส่งเสริม), Feb 28, 2020
4/5 we began our journey with a slight bit of confusion as to the location of pick up point as they were slightly late in picking us up (understandable). Once on the coach peoples first thought was to test their chairs and take off their socks (not great) However, once we made a holding point for our phone, we began a joe rogan podcast with Russell brand and it was all ok - we had little thought of the 15 hour journey ahead of us. We then proceeded to take some sleeping pills which helped slowly drift us off to then be awoken by three bus stopping to and for us to move coaches and get some food around 12. The rest of the journey wasn’t too bad - we were all a bit sleeping and saved about £50 so was worth it in the end, very doable and all in all good value in money, got us to where we wanted and at the end of the day your in Thailand so can’t complain much, just do it it’s fine. Love from the sleepy bois

Bus left over 1 hour late. A little bit of confusion around the departure. Toilet smelt bad throughout. Apart from this, all was ok, and we arrived in time.

We seated in the end of the bus. The toilet behind us. We can not sleep with the digushed smell. So terible! The price is expensive without bottle of water or food.

The AC wasn't too high or too low, the staff were helpful, we left/arrived on time. The bus was not more spacious than a regular one though

I had to change to another bus once and then was placed into two different vans to reach my destination, which was a little disorienting. The initial bus stopped once in the middle of the night at a small rest station, where the owner charged 20 baht for a small bottle of lukewarm water. However, the bus company did make sure I was headed to the right location each time and I was dropped off directly at my hostel instead of at a nearby McDonald's that my ticket directed. Overall, not bad for what I paid.

Four stars simply because it was a rough journey by design: from the meetup point in Bangkok Hua Lamphong Station at 7pm, a five-hour drive before stopping at midnight for a bathroom break and a low-quality, 60-baht meal. Then at 2:30am, the bus stopped in Chumphon, all the lights came on to offload the Koh Tao people. Then at 6am, the bus stopped in Surat Thani to offload everyone else into our respective minivans (Koh Samui/Phangan people in one, Phuket/Krabi/Ao Nang people in another). Then a dropoff in Krabi Town and we waited 30-40 minutes for the final minivan to Ao Nang, finally arriving about 9:30/10am. But, they got us there safely, and despite reports of luggage robbery with this company, I secured my bags and took the usual precautions and did not have a problem. I would only recommend this if you're traveling on a tight budget, have lots of time on your hands, or are determined to travel overland vs by air; otherwise, plan in advance and just take a cheap flight.
