Left late from Siem Reap and didn't arrive until 10:30pm. Had to wait in the border town with no food and no idea what was going on until a mini bus arrived. Take food with you and don’t book any onward travel.

Due to the corona-virus the operator cancelled the trip. Unfortunately we did not receive a refund. We only got the chance to credit the amount of money to the 12Go account.

Border immigration ,etc pathetic. No government change even indicated. This is the life blood of both Countries. More pressure to streamline the border immigration is needed instead of the millions spent on self promoting crap.

Everything was great, except for location of bus station in Siem Reap. I think having a stop near city center would have been much better.

The only drawback was to wait for 3 hours in the border to the oppening hour of the immigration offices. Then we had to carry our luggage to a busy street on Thailand side. It took a a minute to figure out where the meeting point to take the bus again. But the trip was very nice and smooth

Bus was late about 4.5 hours. Staff at the station didn't give us any information about true bus arrival. Finally after 14 hours we arrived in Bangkok. So remember to book flight a bit later in case of possibility of quite considerable delay.

No problems encountered from boarding to destination. Spent about 2 hours at immigration control but heard that this was to be expected. Guide was helpful.

The bus was at least an hour late departing Siem Reap. This was, they said, due to problems with air conditioning; I think another bus had to be found. In the end we travelled on a Giant Ibis bus (not Nattakan). Very comfortable bus with plenty leg room and fully reclining seats. There were about 20 passengers. The bus conductor took great care in explaining how to proceed through departure at the Cambodian border (which was reasonably quick) and passport control on the Thailand side (which took over 2 hours of queuing). As a result of these delays we hit Bangkok at rush hour and didn't get off the bus until after 7pm (instead of scheduled 5pm). Also, we were not dropped at Morchit bus station but at Makassan.

A long trip, with a long wait at the border. We're dropped off a bus station at night with no taxis in sight..
