Trip went exactly as planned. The driver was extremely pleasant, drove in a very safe manner, and let us play our music from our phones for the entire drive. Highly recommend the service.

A viagem correu bem mas podia ter sido mais calma, penso que pela velocidade acabamos por não ter uma viagem mais confortável.

As is the case with booking transfers in Thailand it’s never very clear which stop is yours, if you’re on the correct bus, and if they’re actually going to take you where you intended. They did this time, but definitely think there’s room for improvement on how the Thais ship the foreigners around. As a solo female traveller, I’ve surprisingly always felt safe enough in Thailand, however there’s so many stops you get “stuck” at to wait for a ridiculous length of time, with 0 communication of it, whilst alone, and it’s not what I’d recommend for other females travelling by themseves anywhere.

We had no problems. We did have to ask a few people to find the storefront pictured after getting off the train, It is not what I would consider right across from the train station - look to your left as you get off the train and it is in the bank of stores you can see on the left. The following morning we arrived for the bus to take us to our hotel in AoNang and it went smoothly. We were all dropped off at a station in Krabi and then went in a van direct to our hotel.
