Not completely clear what where and how it works and it was quite a bit later then asked for, but a decent mini van brought is where we wanted to go. Good value for money

Bus Minivan, Phantip 1970, Jan 3, 2020
We expected a mini van and ended up on a packed double decker bus. On arrival at the airport we were informed that the bus was running late so ended up waiting for a extra 45 mins at the airport. The most annoying thing was paying for a extra seat for my bag and ended up it in between my legs because all the bags were pulled up piled high together like on the ferries. Journey was ok, it took 1 hour 45 but no communication until we arrived at the bus station in Khao Sok. I would do it again but wouldn’t pay for extra luggage.

Bus Minivan, Phantip 1970, Jan 2, 2020
Train arrived in Surat Thani at 7.30 am; we had a reservation for a minivan at 8.30 am. We wanted to have some breakfast but at the Hat Yai tour office, nobody was in the kitchen. So we went to the neighbours from another company. They were working hard to provide the breakfastorders. People from Hat Yai almost screamed at us that we should sit in their office. Not very polite. We felt very much like cattle. While we were waiting for our breakfast, around 8.00 am, the people from Hat Yai told us our minivan would leave soon. So when our breakfast arrived, we ate very quickly. Only to wait for 10 more minutes before our minivan left, just before 8.30 am. All in all, not a very positive experience.
