A van picked us up at 10am. But then we waited for 2 hours to change to another van. Wasn't efficient at all - we could have arrived 2 hours earlier

So they didn't have our hotel listed on the hotel list to chose from so we basically just chose the closet hotel to us and went there to be picked up around 10am. They arrived at 10:15 and there were already people in the car which made it a little cramp but not too bad at all. Went to pick up a few more people after which made it more cramp but we somehow manage to fit in comfortably. Afterward we went to a bigger station where they check our tickets again so make sure to keep a printed copy of your ticket. They will give you a sticker and call out your location when a different van come to pick you up. During the way to Phuket Airport we stopped at a rest stop to use the restroom and get refreshments. Afterward it was on the way to Phuket Airport. The ride wasn't too bad at all, time actually passed by pretty fast. Overall for the price it was a good deal. Don't expect anything fancy. I never really do when it comes to visiting other rural countries. The point is we were able to get to our location correctly and the time was not too bad either.

Got us there on time but the whole series of events was poorly explained and left us feeling confused at points with bus switches and no explanation. It turned out that this was a collection point and the final buses went from there but we ended up with 3 stops in a 4 hour journey
