Bangkok (BKK) to Krabi Airport (KBV) Destination Reviews

I had seat A1 I am 1,90m tall Wanted to change seat in the bus, because I am too tall for that seat. Got denied. I get that I cannot sit on seats that will be occupied later. But there was enough space in the bus. It would have been easy to give me another seat that is 10x more comfortable and has enogh leg space for me. But no, they didn't care. This is actually my first unhappy experience in Thailand. I really enjoy your country. But I do not enjoy your bus staff. I was upset.

People are friendly and helpful! As a foreigner, I do not encounter much difficulties. Nevertheles, more signs in English to identify buses depart from where to where at what time and which bay# will defintely enhance the bus services. Thanks to the lovely young lady who works in the meal service stop(about half of the journey)who told me to use my bus ticket to redeem a meal voucher.. From H.K.

Staff were lovely and helpful at starting and ending bus terminals, seats were comfy and reclined back quite far making it easy to have a little sleep. Also a free meal is included :)

bus ride itself was fine bus had a toilet and seats reclined alot however the time it states u will arrive in Krabi it's about 2 hours out maybe because of the stops to drop of goods. I don't mind it taking longer but I think if they could update the arrival time to a much more realistic time.
