Bus Sleeper, Naluang, Dec 26, 2019
Sleeper bus Monday and Friday only. Definitely worth doing this 17 hour journey on one of those days, for that reason. Bus was not 100% full, they granted my request to not share a bed since I was traveling solo. Driver was safe, border crossing easy. I am satisfied with the trip.
