The driver spoke English very well and was taking good care of us. He communicated everything we had to do also on the border and even helped us with going further. The bus was clean and spacious with AC (make sure you have warm clothes at hand). There were enough stops for snacks and/or toilet.

Best staff, very friendly and careing driver. The Minibus was in good condition but this kind minibus ist not very comfortable. Fixed seats an Not mich space.
Bus Express, Persada Taiping, Dec 5, 2022
Good driver. He droped us directly in our hôtel in Hat Yai center. The problem is that we had to pay 10 ringgits per person to cross the boarder! We didn't really understand why we had to pay because one of the customer didn't pay and he could go until Hat Yai... We didn't have the information before from the bus company. This is not correct because we had no more ringgits and no atm at the boarder... Please, give the information to others travellers!
