Passenger reviews out of total 522 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.

Coach was clean and comfortable. AC is really high so make sure you bring a jacket. Train was delayed for 2hrs but you can't fault technical error. All in all it was a comfy ride and I arrived in Padang Besar well rested.

While it did get us there eventually, it didn’t arrive at Surat Thani until 0430 (scheduled for 0203), and as a result we missed our train from Padang Besar. Also, broken a/c, so a sweaty “night”.
