Bus left late as waited for late passenger, dropped off locals where they wanted and arrived over 2 hours late. Could not even let waiting people know as the ‘free’ Wi-fi was broken. Food ok seat ok.

This was very slow train. Stopped every stop between Bangkok and Surin. Took 10 hours. Constant sellers going up aisles. No notification of where we we're stopping, not good signs. No air. Windows down.

Bus VIP, Sawadee Surin (สวัสดีสุรินทร์), Aug 9, 2019
Chose a front single seat to have a view of the drive but the windshield had big stickers that totally blocked my view. Other double decker buses didn’t have them. Snack was ok but toilet was smelly and too full of buckets. Bus left and arrived on time and driver was cautious and careful.
Train #23 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jun 25, 2019
Great way of travel.
