they let you take luggage with you as sometimes there are thefts in thailand, so thats great. the bus was very empty and the seats were not worn and leather. a/c was good. there was a few quick stops on route, maybe 10 min total.

Easy to find and relatively comfortable, but a bad smell and the driver didn't stop once for a toilet break so a few of us were desperate.

The bus itself was fine along with the journey, right until the end where I was not dropped off at my correct destination and was hastily put onto a taxi to go back the way I came for 20 minutes. Added expense of tipping the driver that should not have occurred.

I was trying to go from Phuket Airport to Koh Phangan and it was very confusing and challenging to buy on your site. I had to buy three separate tickets on this site and two more in person from another vendor. It would be best if your site included a trip from the Phuket Airport to Bus Terminal 2 or something more direct. I had to get a hotel near the Phuket airport and then the next day had to figure out how to get from the airport )on an airport shuttle to bus terminal 1 and then had to get another ticket to terminal 2 to get to this trip.

Extremely bumpy and midway a smell of urine infested the whole bus. People with sketchy looks kept looking at our bags and phones. Recommend if you have no other option really.
