Train #75 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Feb 17, 2020
Very good service from 12Go. Train is very reliable and well priced. Train guard was very helpful to all passengers and very good tempered with all the people who sat in the wrong seats! Air con is just a fan which does the job. Toilets are adequate in the 2nd Class area but more basic for the lower priced coach. Plenty of food to buy from either train staff or people selling wares along the way. All Thai style so take your own if you prefer something else. 2nd class coach was mopped through regularly so was very clean. Windows were obscured by dirt but with the shortage of water this was understandable. We mostly travel by train and find it a fantastic way to visit other parts of Thailand in relative comfort.

Excellent service, very easy ticketing process...A very big thank you to the customer that told me go to window 55 3rd floor! Otherwise it would have been an interesting experience trying to guess which window of the 100+ to choose from! Almost exactly on time travel estimate, friendly conductor and staff! Large comfortable reclining chair, makes sleeping easy! Thanks!

Bus Express, Air Udon (แอร์อุดร), Nov 8, 2019
The trip was great. The bus left on time and we arrived on time at 04:30am to Udon. The seat was very comfortable like seating on a big couch. The staff was nice and polite. Before departure, they asked each passenger about their final destination so they tell you when it's your time to get off the bus. There was one stop for toilet if I remember correctly after around 4 hours of driving (but I was sleeping so there might have also been another stop earlier that I missed). They give out blankets, but the bus can get pretty cold so make sure to bring along something warm. They also give out some snacks, a small bag of chips, a water bottle, and thai style chicken balls. But maybe you want to bring some food of your own as well. All in all, it was a smooth trip and I can recommend it Notice: When you arrive at the bus terminal go to the 3rd-floor desk 55, my booking confirmation didn't mention it and I had to ask around.
