Prima goedkoop vervoersmiddel. De airco is 's avonds fris, daar hadden we al rekening mee gehouden. Een lange broek en t- shirt met lange mouwen was aangenaam. Ook hebben ze dekens. Ik heb onderin met mijn dochter van 5 jaar gelegen. Dit was voor ons goed te doen.

Driver was 45 minutes late. The day before we took the bus from the airport because we needed to go to the bus station where our hotel was. The people near the airport said that we must take the bus for 100bht per person. The bus driver never went to the station but to the Center of Surat Thani even further from the station. After we had to get out, within 2 seconds there was a tuktuk driver who charged us way too much and already knew from the gut who set us up that we needed to get to the station. So... we haven’t got very good experiences with Phantip 1970 or whatever!

The trip was quick and efficient. Good driver. The bus was rather full with all the luggage, but it was ok. When we arrived in Khao Sok, we passed our hotel, but the driver did not stop, although he knew that we were staying there. He dropped us at the meeting point and if we paid extra, he would bring us to our hotel. I would have liked if he had dropped us before, since I travelled with kids.
