Passenger reviews out of total 922 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

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.

In general the journey was ok. The ladies at phantip office in Surat Thani were very friendly and helpful. However, the bus from Krabi to Surat Thani town hasn’t had AC it was just with fan so it was quite hot in there.

Our bus didn’t have proper aircondition. It was bit hard to find Phantip office in Suratthani to get ride to the railway station.

★★★★☆
2hr trip in a tired minibus with noisy A.C. and a slightly scary driver. Its not the best customer experience as the place is tricky to find and it all feels 'a bit iffy' as communication isnt brilliant, but they did exactly what we needed and all on time . Even dropped us to the door of our hotel as opposed to the general drop point which at night in a strange place was very welcome.... and all for £5 each. It's sort of great once you've don't it but odd whilst it's happening... hence dropping a star.
