Phuket to Ranong Destination Reviews

Driver was great
taxi Comfort, Andaman Taxis (Andaman Taxis), Feb 23, 2020
Bus left on time, but arrived about 1,5 hours later than expected (no taxis in Ranong at this time - so if you don't want to walk, organise a pick-up with your hotel beforehand). Took forever to get out of Phuket as bus stopped so many times. Other than that it was rather comfortable. AC was nice, but never too cold as you could regulate it yourself. Toilet and food stop about halfway.

Overcrowded, bad condition of bus, mechanical noise. A/c stopped working onway .did not feel roadworthy.

The A/C was totally unable to compete against the heat, try to get a seat in the front as you'll have the heat coming from the engine room in the back of the bus. Wifi was non existant although advertised. Bus made many stops for locals and arrived an hour late in Ranong.

Smooth drive, AC worked ok and we were only a bit late. I am satisfied!
Bus Express, Rung Kit (รุ่งกิจทัวร์), Mar 17, 2019
The bus had an accident. We were stuck for 2hours before another bus come pick us up. The other bus was crowded and my girlfriend and I didn't had anywhere to seat for the remaining 2 hours of the journey.
Bus Express, Rung Kit (รุ่งกิจทัวร์), Feb 18, 2019
We were asked if we would like to go earlier than booked as we arrived at the station far too soon. This was great for us. The bus left very promptly at the designated time. The bus was comfortable and the journey looked beautiful from our window.

Perfect service, outstanding!
