At banphe pier it wasn't clear where to go and the person who welcomed us was not clear that she belonged to 12go. Maybe an identity card or something else would be usefull

Bus started in time, bus was clean and well maintained; driver did a good job. Only the communication at Ban Phe could be improved. We had to wait for about 30 minutes and had no information at which time the ferry/boat will leave - but finally we arrived 👍

It was really confusing at the Busstation Ekkamai, because we first didn‘t know, that the sent Ticket via Mail had to be „traded“ at the Ticket Office - there, it was very hard to find out to Go to which Counter… but a Lady from another Counter helped out to find the Right one! The Bus Drive was really comfortable and we Even made a Toilet-stop. At the Pier we got another paper-ticket and had to wait some minutes, till we got in the Speedboat. Beside the confusion at the beginning, everything was really convenient and easy .3708124423914E+24;

The bus left 90 minutes later. It was a little cramped for tall people. From Ban Phe everything went well. Here the service was great.
