From Khao San Tara Travel to Vang Vieng by bus

Khao San Tara Travel, Bangkok
Vang Vieng Bus Station

Passenger reviews out of total 28 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Definitely not what we expected! Ticket said to arrive 30mins before departure so we did, only to be told to wait an hour for another customer who never showed. They drove us to the Chatachuk bus depot where we had 2hrs of a layover. Again, the bus was not the type of sleeper bus we expected it to be and had we known, we would have paid the little extra for the VIP bus instead, ohh and the bus was super cold the whole trip, not able to adjust your aircon on this trip. We were dropped off on the side of the road, another 10min walk from the actual depot. Once there, we got our next tickets and had to take a tuktuk ride for about half an hour at 6am, definitely not dressed accordingly, to the boarder. Not much description as to where to go or how to do things.
