Okay experience. Bus was quite old, seats were a little cramp, but it got us to our destination in good time.
Bus Express, Rung Kit, Feb 25, 2019
Bus was unsafe , no suspension. We we told we could get off at soi jw marriott . The driver refused to stop . We had to pay 800 baht to get back to where we should have been dropped off. Stopped plenty of times for thai people. Unhelpful and unfriendly.

It’s a long trip. The back of the bus is not air conditioned, you’ll stick to your chair with sweat in 39 minutes or so. WiFi also isn’t there. The bus is bumpy, and if someone decides to use that restroom the whole bus can smell it. But- the price can’t be beat. If you want to save money and have extra time, just psyche yourself up for it.
