Phuket to Bangkok Destination Reviews

When you sit at the back rows, you'll smell the bathroom when someone pees. But overall it is pretty good. Comfortable and on time.

Security check point info is hard to understand and not provided in advance. I had my power bank taken and it was 10000 mAH
flight Economy, Thai AirAsia (แอร์เอเชีย), Apr 15, 2022
Bus was fairly comfy, good aircon, very noisy with a man shouting most of the trip but that must be just our luck as I’m sure that doesn’t happen everytime, got a meal included half way through but wasn’t anything I fancied, also got a biscuit before we left, make sure you ask questions if you’re unsure on anything the staff are very helpful despite our language barrier.

Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Mar 22, 2022
The staff was totally unfriendly, no speaking english, no eating allowed in the bus and first break after 7hours without an announcement before. The break was 10:30 pm for 20min on a night bazar without vegetarian options.
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Mar 14, 2022
The Journey and driving was excellent! The “meal stop” was a disaster!! No organisation, screaming impolite staff, cold and poor food. Why not a cold offering, boxed and less shouting staff!
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Feb 14, 2022
Very fast flight, low price, good plane. I recommend!
