Bus VIP Sleeper 41, HTX Van Tai 277, Nov 25, 2019
Водители ужасные. Все передние места резервируют для своих и туристов на них не пускают. У половины сидений в автобусе сломаны спинки. По дороге постоянно останавливаются, чтобы брать грузы. Везли даже мотоцикл и живых куриц. Для обеда остановились у дорогого кафе. Мы пошли в соседнее, там было намного дешевле. В итоге ехали 25 часов

The ride was okay, but it will be better if you get the bottom bed rather than the top bunk. Lots of stop getting locals, and cargos. Communication with the driver is hard. But it was a memorable 24 hours bus ride experience :)
Bus VIP Sleeper 41, HTX Van Tai 277, Jul 7, 2019
One star for getting there. One star for staff being fine...in that they got us here. 12go tells you in the voucher (after you've booked) that certain days of the week have subpar busses. We had one of those. Would have been good info for 12go to share prebooking to earn the fee they charge. Left two hours late (standard in SE Asia) but that meant arriving in the dark at 8pm. Despite no assigned seats, westerners are directed to the worst seats and you have to accept it or argue back. Really only a good option if saving money. Skip 12go, they provide nothing, just book at the station.

The quality of the Sleeper Bus was good. Service was normal as staff are not able to communicate in English. However trip took longer than expected. We were informed to arrive 1hour before the departure time at 1730hrs but the bus only left the station at 1900hrs. Not sure why there was a delay but we were told to wait every time we asked.
