Passenger reviews out of total 3,719 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.

Good trip. Roads a little rough as expected. Driver safe and steady.

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

Good bus and good ride. Howewer this company should not be allowed to state a 3h duration online (totally unrealistic for this journey) as it takes 4.5h (which is absolutely fine), especially as they advertise it differently in their shop... 12.go should also monitor unrealistic timings advertised on its portal...

Terrible roads. It took 5 hours, not the 3 hours 'advertised'. Bus was full (some paying passengers were turned away). Seats are hard but the bus is not old and the driver was good (not too fast etc).

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.

All went well. The train was super clean and although it was late to Nong Khai the Thangaleng train was there and so was the driver. Yes he did charge us extra to get to our hotel but we would never have found it otherwise and 50 baht didn't break the bank!

All went smoothly except 1 not clear that need to collect second train ticket before passing through passport control 2 the minibus driver offered to take us directly to our hotel for an extra 50 kip per person. I offered him a map to show us where it was but he refused. Later realised that we could have walked in 2 minutes although he took much longer.
