Bus Express, GreenBus (กรีนบัส (รถเขียว)), Feb 18, 2020
The booking system with 12goAsia is so easy to use and they are extremely professional and prompt with communication. The bus ride itself was Very comfortable. Water bottle and cake snack given free. Stopped every two hours for toilet break, but there's also a toilet at the back of the bus. We upgraded to the VIP seats which were better than a plane! Legrest, long recline and super wide.
