van Van VIP 9pax, 12Go Transport (12Go Transport), Mar 12, 2020
Le bus (un van) était vraiment "tape-cul". Je ne sais pas si c'est dû au bus (je pense que oui) ou à l'état de la route.
van Minibus, Win Happy (บริษัท กาญจนบุรีเดินรถ 81 จำกัด), Mar 4, 2020
We arrived early for the bus and they let us leave early no problems. We paid for 3 tickets for 2 people and all our luggage which was also no problem. It wad pretty quick and the driver let us know when we arrived at our stop. The bus smelled a little and there seemed to be alot of mosquitoes on the bus that came from no where. Other than that it was pretty decent.
van Regional 14pax, Mama Travel and Tour (มาม่า ทราเวล), Feb 28, 2020
Very clean and modern van. They leave on time so do not be late. Not much space between seats but the driver ensures that everyone is comfortable. Not much room for big luggages.
