Great trip, I was expecting way worse. Bus is new, driver is careful and Thailand highways are great.

Long trip, longer than expected because of frequent stops to drop passengers and driver delivering parcels.

Clean, polite, comfortable enough. Water and snack provided. Bathroom on bus so no dedicated bathroom breaks. Trip took 2 hours longer than listed (7.5 instead of 5.5) due to number of stops.

GreenBus is usually more comfortable and convenient, but this express bus was not running its express route this morning and the seats on this model were not as comfortable as usual. But as alwaus great service and staff!
