Left 15 minutes late but arrived in Surat Thani early despite all the passengers getting on and off. Makes for an interesting trip. We took a second mini bus that day to Koh Lanta because I couldn’t find a direct mini bus to Koh Lanta from Khao Sok. Once in Khao Sok there were many choices for a direct mini bus to Koh Lanta but those were not offered by 12go.asia and the tickets we bought were non refundable. The shorter trip and only having to take one mini bus would have been much easier. Please add this as an option on 12go.asia.

The driver was on time at the pickup location, drove nicely and was on time at the destination. The only thing I noticed is that they consistently miscount the number of seats. Somehow the drivers don't know how many seats have been taken and therefore start counting people's heads. This never worked in our case as we had to buy an additional seat for the extra luggage (it says so on the booking page). Which is my next concern! We never actually needed the extra seat as all the vans we've been in had enough space for the luggage. We wasted over 1200 baht for seats we didn't need and that quite upsets me.

The driver has a very dangerous driving style. He was over the speed limit all the trip. I asked him to reduce the speed, but or didn't understand or just he didn't want to. But the trip was less than 1h20m. Unbelivable. Dangerous. I'll never use this again.

The train arrived 1.5 hour late and we ended with 3 hour delay. We had the last two beds of the row so it was right behind the toilet which smelled. also nothing to leave our luggage on.

Driver kept stopping during the trip to pick up “customers” who seemed like his friends who he’d drop off at random stops. The van station was not clearly labelled and slightly disorganized.
