Passenger reviews out of total 1,444 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.

Prelude. One cannot judge a 3rd world country too much for its lack of efficiency in transportation. A small story on timing. I had a mini van from Surat Thani to Phuket booked through 12go, the van was booked to depart at 12pm and arrive at 4pm. I arrived at 10:30am and asked if I can be placed in the next van which is scheduled to leave at 11am. They said it was fine without any charge, yey! After some wait, the van arrived at 11:40am. Fine, still under 12, right? We departed promptly. Air conditioning was enough. After some stops we got all the people along with random cargo which the driver was delivering to some businesses. So technically, not only were they delivering people, they were also delivering packages to people? Note that these vans are not meant for almost any baggage space. The major thing is that we arrived at around 5:10pm. So not only was it later than the original 4pm arrival time, but it was 2 hours late for the 11am's trip. So yes, be prepared for major delays and sardine like atmosphere. I just wonder if I took the 11:30am-5:30pm bus, would it have taken longer? Definitely more space, but maybe at the expense of conditioning? Good luck in your travels!

Downside is that there is very little legroom, my husband is very long and could barely put his legs down, unpleasant ......... advice seat choice. We were very satisfied with the driver, he drove safely and well.

★★☆☆☆
It was a full mini bus without air conditioning. the driver stopped to do his own business on the road, and didn't stop to the phuket bus station terminal 2 but in a place where he has friends to transfert people with scammed price ... in addition, traveler with us was not stopped where they supposed to be too (phuket airport) which was on our way , then they needed to take an other transport much more expensive to go back to their destination. it was not a phantip transport ...

★★☆☆☆
The trip itself was ok. Nothing special and the bus was fine. But the staff getting us into the bus were extremely disorganised and white rude at times. They wouldn't tell you needed to go or when the bus would arrive until the last minute. There was a charge to use a very gross toilet and they made the situation unnecessarily stressful. The journey itself was decent.

The trip was pleasant but could improve more on the hygiene as there were lots of cockroaches scurrying around. The ticket conductor and attending steward was polite and accommodating.

Bus was a bit tired but AC worked and was only half an hour late on arrival, which is pretty good from my experience of Thai public transport.
