Passenger reviews out of total 2,113 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.

Was relatively cheap, but you get what you pay for. We were picked up at the airport and dropped at a meeting point 5 minutes later. Half an hour later the minibus arrived. There were 8 people initially (who could fit easily with luggage). But the driver picked up some locals who paid 40baht each for the same trip. And took a lot more space. While they got dropped off where needed, we were dropped at a central point. Not a fair system. Driver was good though and got us there safely.

We were put on the wrong bus by the staff and dropped off at the side of the road when staff realised. Another bus came along 30mins later to pick us up. This however wont deter us from using this company again. Very affordable travel, despite the minor inconvenience.

We were at the departure point waiting for our bus, half an hour before the departure time. There was a bus appointed to us, but the bus-driver didn’t want to take us with him. After a couple of minutes he took us with him on the bus and 5min later dropped us at some cafe/busstop without any information. Then an hour later we were picked up and were brought to khao sok

Our bus was scheduled to leave at 9:30am. We arrived 30 minutes earlier as requested. At the office I was told that the bus will leave at 10am instead because the 9:30 am departure is somewhere else first bus instead of 2 hrs it will now only take 1,5. Well at 10am the bus still wasn’t there and I asked and was told, it’s obits way. About 25 min later we were told, that the bus in a lot of traffic and will take another 30 minutes. The man st the office offered something else but we didn’t understand and said we wait. At 11 am the bus finally came and made several stops on the way for locals, which I though was only for tourists. Finally at around 12:30pm we arrived

We had a good trip. Good driver, safe driver. We paid for 3 chairs because of our suitcases. But we were amazed that there was another couple with much bigger suitcases that did not pay for it. They could travel with theorie Luggage with this mini-van thanks to us. We think that this system is quite unfair.

Efficient way to get from A to B, used by locals who stop the minivan when they want to get off by the road side! Easy to find when we got off the train, small breakfast while we waited for pickup from statio, probably not suitable for big suitcases as bags are squeezed in between seats in the aisle.
