Passenger reviews out of total 713 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

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.

bus Express 30-32, Sombat Tour
The trip was very comfortable with generous leg room. Snacks and lunch were provided. Blankets at the beginning of the trip and facial wipes at the near end were also provided. The conductor was very helpful after Intold her I was to get off a town before the booker destination. She kept us updated and well-informed about our slight change of plan.

train #77 Class II AC, Thai Railways
Quite the... experience. The seats were decent, the AC worked well, and the train ran on time. However, the fluorescent lights were on the entire trip from 18:30 to 02:30, and the train itself was extremely loud, making it very difficult to rest. I would’ve been looking out the window, except the bright lights inside made that impossible, the glare and reflection was so bad. We didn’t get any meals or snacks or drinks, but I don’t think that was advertised to us so we didn’t expect any. The two attendants went to sleep quickly, and there were no announcements when the train slowed at stations (it didn’t quite stop at every one). Luckily I have a data plan so I was following our route, and the kind train officer/ticketer noticed that we were farang and made sure we knew our station, so we arrived safely at our destination! The bathroom was a squat toilet and smelled horrific, but seemed clean enough, and the sink water worked well, and there was an open window so I enjoyed the view whenever I needed to go. As a pretty tolerant and optimistic traveler, I didn’t have a terrible time. It was quite the adventure! That being said, in the future I will just take a bus. Much more luxurious and still not too expensive.
