Bus Express, Rung Kit, Mar 25, 2019
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.

Bus Express, Rung Kit, Feb 18, 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, Feb 7, 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.
