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.

Staff were aggressive and did not tell us what was going on, the service stations we stopped at were not service stations, they were shacks where the staff would meet up with their friends with no facilities. However the beds were comfortable

The staff of the bus company were not very helpfull, rude and did not speak any English. The bus seats were very small so I could not strech my legs. The address of the place where we were dropped in Hanoi was totally different than on the company's webside which made it more difficult to figure out how to get to our hotel. On the other hand we got an adventure which you cannot experience if you take a flight.

This was my second time in an overnight sleeper bus. This bus was very uncomfortable compared to my previous ride. The seats were smaller, so I and most people around me couldn't straighten our legs, it was rather uncomfortable to keep the legs constantly folded on a 25 hour bus journey. The AC was inconsistent, there was no complementary bottled water, snacks or towel. No TV etc. No wifi. The bus staff couldn't speak English at all, so we all had to make a guess to understand what was going on. Then after 24 hours of the uncomfortable journey, we were shifted to a very nice bus in the last hour of the journey, this bus had great leg room, TV, wifi etc. We wished that we had gotten that bus from the start. Also, one thing that I don't understand is that the foreigners seem to get the upper seats and locals get the lower seats (the bus staff explicitly told me to not take the lower seats), I don't know what's up with that. But anyways, overall it was a rather uncomfortable journey except for the last one hour when we were shifted to a better bus.
