Passenger reviews out of total 124 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.

It was pretty rugged. None of the staff spoke English and that was a challenge. They were helpful and friendly but one had no idea what was happening. seemd like chaos on wheels.

Very unfriendly staff. Bus had no safety belts. Arrived 3 hours later then planned. Seating comfort is very good.
