Passenger reviews out of total 65 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

bus Express, Asia Van Transfer
I was really happy that the booking office explained me the trip before I left. The first bus driver was not speaking English and dropped us in a restaurant. Luckily the restaurant owner told us that this was normal and we had to change buses. The next drivers were really kind to help us to fill in the papers to cross the border. But they don't cross the border with you and of course you are scammed and you need to pay extra to get the stamps. It was unavoidable. After the border crossing we needed to change buses again. In Pakse they brought me to another bus station to go on a sleeper bus. It was a really small bed and I needed to share it with a stranger. The ride was really wobbly and noisy. In the end I survived this long bus ride, I believe that all of this is a part of travelling Asia.
