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.

The drive reached before the train's arrival and took us safely and fast to Vientiane city centre. Nice trip. Please prepare some Thailand Baht small amount bills, and you will use them when just in the city. It's not easy to find a money changer for exchanging Laos kip even in Bangkok

We bought a combo ticket that included the trainride from Nong Khai to Vientanne treinstation. And from there we had a small minivan from PTS that would transport is to the big bus on the outside of vientanne where more people would hop on. First of all the train was 1,5 hour late, so the people at the trainstation where very helpfull and made some phone calls. They told us to take a taxi to the border get a signout stamp from thai border control and buy bustickets to transport you over the bridge into Laos. Once there get your visa, take a taxi to the trainstation to be on time for your bus. We did all this and when we came in the trainstation, there is no PTS counter, the people who work at the station are very kind and strated making phone calls to the number provided on the voucher, but no answer. Finnaly a man came Walking to us that was the driver of PTS and he told is we had to wait for the train as there was 1 more person that would come with us. After we waited for 1,5 hour the train arrived and we waited 30 minutes more for everyone the get a visa. Then the minivan driver drives us to the big bus, where we waited more 45 minutes because other people were late also. In the end of has nothing to do with 12go. But the fact they did not answer the phone worried us all. In the end it is better for your money to buy a big bus ticket in Nong Khai or Udon Thani. This is about 180 bath cheaper. The bus ticket from Udon to Vang Vieng will cost 320 bath. We paid 500 bath in 12go from Nong Khai. And in Vang Vieng a big bus ticket can be bought for 350 bath to Nong Khai, and we paid 12go 450 bath. The minivan was terrible ride , very old. No airco and the dust and sand comes right trough the holes and cracks of the van. Not good for your health , so bring face breathing dust masks

The 12go staff were super friendly and absolutely lovely when we went to pick up our tickets, and we are bery pleased with the service. The train itself was fine however I recobooking in either first class or lower berths as the lights stay on all nigh and the upper berth beds are thus very difficult to actually sleep in.

We got the train sleeper, and it’s great! More than expected. Once we get to the Dongphosy station we are asked to pay 50baht at the immigration in Laos, and transfer is not hard to find just look for 12go small green table.Though we missed the ticket from nong khai to thanaleng we crossed immigration right away exiting Thailand and missed the ticket booth but all in all a great trip! Would recommend! Keep it up!

All extremely efficient and entirely straightforward. It’s important to read through the documents and thoroughly prepare for your journey. Reading some other comments it’s clear that not everyone does so! Everything was easy, straightforward and ran on time. Would recommend booking the rail/minivan transfer from Nong Khai - Thanaleng and into Vientiane, which dropped us straight at our hotel. This can also be done through 12GoAsia and made the entire journey stress free

The transfer van to the hotel was too small for the number of people with their luggage. No information was locally provided so the process was very unclear and slow.

They didn’t speak English in the station Nong Khai. It was a bit confused to understand that we need to change for a small train. And the train arrived very late to Nong Khai, one hour after

Nowhere did 12go mention how the transit train from NONG KHAI to THANALENG is covered, just says get on it. However, on arrival at Nong Khai, I was directed by station staff to the ticket counter to buy a 20BAHT ticket for the trip. Afterwards, I met travellers who had also been sent to the ticket office but had got their tickets for free on presentation of the PTS voucher!

No toilet on bus, but have one 15 min stop during the route. Roads very bad in Laos so be prepared for a shaky ride

They bought the tickets for me which is quite convenient. The trip was nice until the last leg of the trip, someone is supposed to pick me up from the Thanaleng Station to drop-off me at my hotel in Vientiane but NO ONE showed up. The private car drivers outside the Thanaleng station called them but no one came. Good thing one of the drivers drove me all the way to the central bus station in the downtown Vientiane and I just walked from there to my hotel. I was pleased at the start of the trip but ended up in a horrible mood. By the way, I called the number in the voucher but no one answered! That's why I'm giving this 3 stars.

The train ride was really pleasant as we were in the female only carriage which made us 2 girls feel a lot more relaxed. The train conductor made our beds and put new sheets on etc which was super helpful and the food sold on board weren’t bad quality. I actually had a very deep uninterrupted sleep throughout the night. The only tip I would suggest is taking an eye mask and some ear plugs with you as the train can be a bit loud. But overall, I was really impressed with the train ride! Would definitely do it again!

It was easy. One tip for the voucher: note that travellers have to get dollars for the visa before arriving in Tanaleng. You need 36 dollars per visa.

The train arrived 40 minutes later than originally scheduled. No reason was provided. AC was too excessive and created noise too. Light at the corridor wae bright and I couldn't switch off nor adjust AC. I booked the first class but got second class due to it's full. First class will be way better.
