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.

Because I get to select 'upper seat' and 'under seat' while booking the ticket, I thought I was taking sleeper/ direct bus. However, it was not sleeper, and neither was it a direct bus to Sihanoukville. Kumho bus to Phnom Penh was okay, since the seats are nice; however, I was bit confusing when they had me change to a mini ben from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville.
