Passenger reviews out of total 1,539 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 not there on arrival, no one spoke much English so couldn’t tell us what was going on. Took us 4 hours longer to get to resort than stated. Very disappointed with the service.

★★☆☆☆
You will be dropped off away from the city centre where they will try to charge you for a minivan service up to 400Baht. If you are able just walk back to the main street and catch a classic service to the beach for 50Baht.

Bus was clean and even a bit early, so that was nice. But as other people mentioned, it stops at another Travil Office a bit outside. They bring you to you hotel for an overpriced extra fee (rip -off), but we were too tired to complain.
