van Regional 14pax, New Asian Travel, Jun 8, 2019
First bus was quite clean, ok to travel with, but we change bus in hatyai, the van was far from clean, and arrived more than 2 hours later than supposed to.. but in cheap price, it was just ok.

van Regional 14pax, New Asian Travel, Jan 10, 2019
Van had to be changed at Hat Yai. Too many stops and drop offs and pickups. Rude drivers. Aircon was weak, stuffy seating. The van driver did not drop me to the bus terminal as mentioned on the ticket, saying it was not allowed to, but outside on the main road.
