Bangkok to Surat Thani Town Destination Reviews

It got me from A-B but it wasn't great. I had booked a slightly later bus in the evening (so I wouldn't arrive at 5 am) and showed up an hour early to check in as was indicated. As soon as I got there they started chaotically rushing everybody onto a bus which left an hour earlier than I had booked. The toilet on the bus was completely unusable for women, absolutely disgusting. And the stop for food on the way was gross and felt scammy as well. The bus stopped an hour from the destination with a burning tire. We waited for about an hour on board with no communication from any of the driver or employees, and then another bus showed up to finish the route. Like I said, it got me there, but seriously please pick a different company if you're reading this. An experience I would avoid in the future.
