The bus was clean and the service was great (very friendly and helpful). The free meal was definitely a bonus, especially on a long trip (and it was tasty!).

ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Mar 12, 2021
The seat on the bus not really comfortable. And we wait too long for the speedboat (2.5 hours). Maybe the trip should start at 11 or 11.30pm, not 10pm. So the waiting time not too long.

Departure time and place changed to three hours prior, I rushed there only to be transported to khao San road to then wait for three hours before we could set off. Very disappointed with the incorrect communication.

Estimated arrival time 9am. Actual arrival time 1:30pm, had I known this I would have chosen to take the bus as it would have been much faster.

The organisation worked pretty well, the bus is comfortable and not too cold. Downsides: bring food and drinks with you because it makes only one stop at a restaurant where everything is double the price (small water 20 THB). The staff is rude, they almost yell at you the two words of English they know.

Everything was perfectly organized and eventhough it was long journey I enjoyed it. The bus had huge space for legs, it was comfy and blankets and pillow came handy. Plus the overall way from Bangkok to the Koh Pangan was very cheap.

Bus Express, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Feb 26, 2020
We left an hour late, got woken up at 2 AM for a food stop, then were dropped off at 5 AM at the pier. So, don't plan on sleeping, and come well rested for this night trip. Or pick a slower version, especially if you want to avoid somewhat bumpy ride on a high speed catamaran.

We had a great trip from Bangkok to Koh Phangan! At the office the staff was welcoming and helpful. We were waiting in a very nice lounge with toilets.Smooth and nice travel in a very nice bus and our driver was the best! Smiling all the time and looking to help you in any way he could to make this trip more comfortable!

The ferry was great, but the bus staff weren’t so good. They speak almost no English, which is understandable, so I used a translator. They still didn’t want to speak to way and literally waved me away like a dog.

Very good staff, clean bus, pretty spacious seats which you can easily move back without taking space from passenger behind you. I'll recommend them to do the head count before leaving after the pause. Ferry is also okay, not modern or something but good enough to do the Job right.

Bus Express, Raja Ferry (ราชา เฟอร์รี่), Feb 6, 2020
I was really nervous about my bus and ferry from Bangkok to ko phangan - it was overnight and took 17 hours! But it was great. We were able to drop our bags off at raja ferry beforehand, then boarded the bus later and were told exactly how long the trip would take, when we'd stop for a break, and given blankets and pillows. There was air con, lots of leg room, foot rests and charging ports. I read a lot of people complaining about the transition to the ferry, but it was easy. There's a place to buy food and water and you're told by ferry staff when to get on the ferry. You do have to walk up some steps to get on the ferry, but it's doable and fine - nothing to write home about. The ferry as spacious and comfortable (although I slept the whole time so didn't see much!). Perfect for budget travellers as I saved a night of accommodation by taking the overnight bus. Really recommend! I didn't get water or food provided, but we stopped off so this didn't bother me and there was a toilet on the bus.

Easy booking and ticket pick-up - super fast and all information provided. The train was clean and comfortable. Only downside is that they leave all lights on during the night which makes it hard to sleep. We were an hour late as the train left Bangkok late, but we could easily get on the next ferry.

Even if we pay more to get the “vip” service, the bus was old and smelly. The hostess woke up in the middle of the night to get a shitty “free dinner” (at 01.44am!). Then we were woke up again at 5am for a transfer in a van, which actually left one hour later. A really uncomfortable trip we would never do again! Process of booking with 12go.asia was easy though and reliable

The Office staff in Bangkok was very friendly and we dropped off our luggage as we still had some time before departure. The bus left at 18:00. We got a blanket and a pillow. The air con was not too bad and the driver drove smoothly to donsak pier, we even got there at 6:15 and then took the ferry at 7:30. The ferry is fairly old but it was ok - noting to worry about. I would recommend this Trip!

It’s what you expect for a bus/ferry to a Thai island. They told us to meet at 6:30pm and there was no info until 6:50pm, however everything was straightforward from there. The bus was comfortable enough. I wish the bus left about two hours later because we were at the ferry stop from 3am until the ferry left closer to 7am. However all in all it was a cheap way to get from Bangkok to Koh Phangan.

Overall the entire experience was really good. From combo booking and online info very clear & easy. People from the Bangkok Raja office very kind and responsive. I could safely drop my luggage in there earlier on and that was handy. We left a little late than expected, but ended up arriving on time anyway. Bus driver very kind and the aircon wasn't too bad, the blanket provided and my long pants & sleeves were enough. Raja ferry service wasn't that good though. Staff not kind at all, hurrying everyone up a bit rude. No help with getting luggage onboard or any staff around for anything. Old rusty ferry boat. We got there safe & on time anyway. Will do it again.

It wasn’t my first bus trip this direction. But this trip is kind of disrespect to one’s time. Waiting at the railway station for so long. Then only one shitty stop during the whole time. Then coming to the pier three house before the ferry (what for?) The bus should have start it’s journey much later then. Totally never doing this again

The meetpoint on the station HL is easy to find. But then it was a little chaos. Ať 7 p.m - time of bus departure nowbody was there. Some people asked each other And tried to find out some information. Just 10 minutes after 7 someone came and people were devided in there groups depends on the target destination. Everyone got a coloured label on T- Shirt or hand. There were there colours because of three islands. Then we got in the buses which took another half an hour. Buses set on about 8p.m. The journey was good, I slept mostly. Bus isn't luxury but comfortable enough. Ther's a USB conection. We were waiting about three hours for the Ferry. I think IT could be better with organisation on the HL station.
