Passenger reviews out of total 2,663 passengers 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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★★ Jan 13, 2018 (charter Comfort, Ground Business) :
Arrived 20minutes early and got us there on time / early. Good driver and friendly albeit quiet.
★★★☆☆ Jan 3, 2018 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
More than 1 hour too late departure, more than 1.5 hours too late arrival. Handluggage completely wet
★★★☆☆ Jan 3, 2018 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
we got there, but it took a really long time
★★☆☆☆ Dec 30, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Will not travel with phantip again. The ticket said to go to the phantip office, but we could have stayed at the connecting bus terminal. 100baht wasted
★★★☆☆ Dec 13, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus is too old.
★★☆☆☆ Dec 8, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
We paid for a direct bus from Surat Thani town to Phuket Bus Station. We were put on a local bus that made frequent stops to pick up and drop off locals. Our ticket said we were to arrive by 5pm, we did not arrive until 7:30pm (making our total travel day over 12 hours). The most obnoxious part was at various stops someone would get on and start saying we needed to get off the bus, while taxi drivers boarded and started trying to haggle taxi prices - we were not at our final destination and made it more confusing than it needed to be.
★★★★☆ Nov 14, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus driver was a bit irratic, drove fast amd had to keep slamming on brakes.
★★★★☆ Nov 13, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Good service, just on the bus too long and no western toilets at the stop.
★★★☆☆ Nov 5, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Journey Started 50 Minutes later, we arrived 1,5 Hour later than Plan. We stopped every few Meter to let people in and out. At the end we Must pay 250 THB each to get a VAN without AC with 5 people to Go to the Hotel. Driver was good and safe. Bus was old.
★★★☆☆ Oct 8, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★☆ Sep 23, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★☆☆ Sep 19, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Everything was fine except the train is delayed 2 hours till nid to postpone everything planned..
★★★☆☆ Aug 18, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
We booked 2 lower births on the train however the lower birth can easily fit 2 people so next time would be comfortable to book one lower and one upper in order to leave a lower for someone else. Exit 3 at the Bangkok Railway station has some good and inexpensive restaurants while you are waiting for your train to depart. We ordered takeaways there. Much better than the train food at a fraction of the cost.
★★☆☆☆ Apr 30, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The air conditioning wasn't working very well, the bus had a strong odor and was very warm. The ride was not too bad, we left 30 minutes late and arrived an hour behind schedule. You definitely get what you pay for but it's all good if you need a way to Phuket.
★★★★★ Apr 26, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Perfect, Ok
★★☆☆☆ Apr 9, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★☆☆ Mar 10, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Excellent train and service...But poor time keeping..We got delayed by more than 2 hours and eventually missed the connecting bus.Resulting in a total delay of over 6 to 8 hours in travel timing.We were supposed to reach our final destination by 11 but reached about 1800 plus.
★★★★★ Feb 23, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
With 12go.asia everything worked out perfect. If you book a 2nd class sleper with AC I would recommend the lower bed. It is a little bit bigger and it's really fresh in the upper bed due to the AC.
★★★★☆ Jan 31, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus was little old and in need of some maintenance, but it was on time and airconditioning worked fine. All members of staff were friendly and we were efficiently shown to the right bus after we got off the train. There weren't enough seats for everybody and so a few people had to stand for an hour or so.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 27, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The good points : easy to find the bus at the train station, friendly staff, we arrived safely. Areas that could be improved on: It sounded like the bus had a problem with its exhaust. We were sat at the back and could smell exhaust fumes coming in. We complained and were moved forwards which was better. Under vehicle luggage area was full so luggage stacked blocking a rear emergency exit. Not ideal. Many windows had full depth cracks running from top to bottom. Bus needed some basic maintenance.
★★★☆☆ Jan 26, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The journey seemed very long indeed, the bus was a bit old and uncomfortable and the air conditioning didn't work effectively, I was a bit disappointed but we got there on time and it was fine. 12goasia did a great job acquiring me the tickets though for which I was very grateful.
★★★☆☆ Jan 25, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Cheap and,different. Quite cool actually.
★★★★★ Dec 27, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
amazing tour operator! I was late for the bus to Phuket when I went from the airport. I got a call and was told that the wait! very grateful for the friendliness, responsiveness!
★★★★☆ Dec 26, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very easy to collect my ticket at the station. Staff in the office very polite and helpful. I had read that the trains were cold because of the air con but they were fine, too hot if anything!! The food was good and the guy serving the food ead worth his weight in gold, he was hilarious. On arrival at the station, we were helped to the correct bus and were directed to the correct bus. The bus was the only bad point. It was freezing. It was like sitting in a freezer and it was a 4hr trip. Everyone on the bus were complaining about it.
★★★★☆ Dec 12, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The train and bus were on time and efficient. We were welcomed by some warm individuals. Although we had some flooding from the sink, they gladly gave us a mop to clean it up.
★★★★☆ Dec 2, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
When we got of the train a lady from the bus met us and showed as were to wait and were we could by breakfast. The bus was comfortable and clean. The bus left a bit later than advertised but no big delay. It would have been nice with wifi or power sockets on the bus. I also didn't find a way to turn of the fan above me which bursted out very cold air the whole trip. When we were almost in Phuket the bus stoped and let people who were going to Patong switch to a minivan for 150 THB / person that drove us straight to our hotel.
★★★★☆ Nov 26, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
connections worked really well, so I arrived early
★★☆☆☆ Nov 16, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Looked like a hop on hop off buss for locals. Stopped everywhere. No comfort
★★★☆☆ Nov 15, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The transaction with 12go Asia was smooth and effortless. The train was awesome, very comfortable berths, clean bed linen, very nice staff, only the bathroom was grose, but that happens in most trans. The bus was horrible, old, ugly, hot, with absolutely impossible to use WC. Bus driver was crazy and speeding so much that I was sure we would die...
★★★★★ Nov 5, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
I had no problem what so ever with this travel company. Reasonably priced and make sure I get smooth transfer from train to bus to Phuket. Train was very comfortable and bus was also a nice ride. Highly recommended.
★★☆☆☆ Oct 21, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Such dangerous driving - and in wet weather too. Avoid. Bus was also late.
★★★☆☆ Oct 19, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Train was a bit noisy but staff were very friendly. The bus trip was terrible. Over 4 hours travel and not one bathroom or rest break. I asked the driver if we stopped for a toilet break and he flatly said no. This is despite a message on the booking slip advising us of at least two breaks. Will never use this service again.
★★☆☆☆ Oct 1, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
A very rickety, grubby coach with seats that were not at all comfortable. The bus was suppose to arrive at 1130hrs but didn't arrive until 1215hrs so don't believe the timetable it is way out. One stop for the toilet and breakfast which was an OK place.
★★★★☆ Sep 27, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Great organised company with train times and snack selection as required , I am sure this man was the expert on you tube who demonstrated how to make 2 seats into bunks in record time Whole thing extremely smooth would heartedly recommend them to anyone
★★★☆☆ Jul 9, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Our train was late but I was actually able to catch the bus. However, the bus got full so they placed me on the next one and I had to wait for almost 2 hours. Our bus was ok though not much leg room for tall guys. Trip was for more than 4 hours (9:50 to 2PM) and it did not even stop for lunch.
★★★★☆ May 28, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★☆ May 25, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus was on time, which was nice but unfortunately the seats were soaking wet and water was dripping into the bus from the ceiling. I would recommend due to punctuality, but not the condition of the bus.
★★★★★ May 13, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Excellent service , many thanks
12Go response:

Thank you very much for booking your tickets with us.
We hope you will be back to use our service again in the near future.

Thank you, please enjoy your stay in Thailand.

★★☆☆☆ May 13, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Stopped too many times. To pick up random cash jobs. Lunch stop crap selection of food not even decent Thai options. Driver popping yabba pills and driving like an idiot.- not good seats either but ancient bus so!!!!!
12Go response:

We would like to apologize for this incident. We will pass your review to the bus company.
We thank you and and appreciate your review and comment about the service. On behalf of 12go.asia, we apologize having a dissatisfaction with the transport service.

Once again, our apology for all the inconvenience and we hope you still consider 12go@asia service in your future trips!

★★★☆☆ Apr 7, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Food on train poor and expensive
★★★★★ Apr 4, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★☆ Mar 20, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Train ride was pretty decent. Second class air-con was very cold, good to have sweater or extra blanket. Also, the roof light shone into upper berth space, so no darkness for a good sleep. But other than that, the transfer to the bus went smoothly. Bus arrived 90 minutes late, but didn't mind that too much.
★★☆☆☆ Mar 13, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
there was no airconditioning as advertised. it was only the blowers which were working, thus, it was too hot inside. there were many stops which made us arrive late in phuket.
★★★★☆ Mar 5, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★★ Feb 18, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★☆ Feb 10, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus trip was fine. Comfortable and as roomy as you'd expect. A great way to travel
★★★★☆ Feb 6, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Comfortable bus trip but one hour late. Well organised transfer. Good value.
★★★★☆ Jan 1, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Booking was easy. We almost missed our bus because the train was 40 minutes late, but the Phantip guides collected us from the train and got us to the correct bus. The bus ran about 15 minutes longer than advertised, but it was very close to on time. The seats were really close together and our legs were up against the seats in front of us. Luckily the bus wasn't full so we could spread out a little. The air conditioning was perfect during the trip and overall a good experience.
★★★☆☆ Dec 26, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
A decent bus ride. Well received by phantip at train station, and organised a transfer. Standard AC bus, too many r stops to pickup/drop off as per regulations. 4 hours 30 minutes ride.
★★☆☆☆ Nov 23, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Not really good ! To long 4.30 hour!
★★★☆☆ Nov 21, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Departed 5 min late - arrived 30 min late and the driver was driving fast. It was uncomfortable in turns. Please change the arrival time...
★★★★☆ Nov 19, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Make sure you bring extra warm clothes
★★★★☆ Nov 18, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Perfectly fine. Had to pay an extra 200 baht to get dropped off near my part of the island.
★★★☆☆ Nov 12, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Great service from 12Go, the train was old and not very clean. Food tooo spicy! but they were very helpfull on board. Beds were ok, we had a very good sleep.
★★★★☆ Oct 28, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
though the bus not as good as shown on picture, but the conductor was nice and polite. quite comfortable bus, but a bit delayed
★★★☆☆ Oct 24, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Pickup was on time. Coach was not as depicted. It was an older coach, which was not so comfy. I saw other Phantom 1970 coaches lined up which were heading to Krabi and other locations, and they looked a lot more modern. Arrived into Phuket half an hour late.
★★★☆☆ Oct 19, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
As always, great service from 12go Asia. We did managed to the bus and arrived safely at Phuket. However, the bus driver and co-driver is quite unfriendly and he was using phone while driving. They also cannot speak english so we should ask others.
★★☆☆☆ Jul 2, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
When we got to a Mobil station on Phuket island the bus driver walks through the bus and says, "Patong Beach? Patong Beach?" We say, "Patong, minibus will take you there from here." So we got out and the mini bus wanted 200 baht from there to Patong. That seemed high so we started looking at the maps and realize that if we had waited until Phuket town where the bus route terminated, we'd have been much closer and would have paid much less for the taxi ride into Patong. I felt robbed. This is a reflection upon the bus company but we had no problems with our booking through 12asia.
12Go response:

Hi John. We had an explanation from the Phantip company - this is their co-op "last mile" company for Phuket, which actually delivers people from the very top of the island down to beaches. 200 THB is a normal price (it would be about same price for about same distance from the airport). You would be closer to beaches if you came to the bus terminal, but only geographically - as pricing at Phuket is a bit wicked and you'll have to pay much more to any tuk tuk driver at the bus station (and will have to negotiate which is not really a pleasant process). Taxi-meter would be about 700 baht. Btw, bus terminal is not in Phuket town any more - they moved it further north few years ago. Thank for booking with us.

★★★★☆ May 21, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Helpful and good staff
★★★☆☆ Apr 10, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Great service from 12Go. Train trip OK, with "helpful" staff but hard-sell on food options. Foolishly found ourselves committed to dinner and breakfast @ Bht2200 for 4 people before we knew other options. Other passengers need to be aware of pushy (though friendly) food service staff - who know how to coerce.
★★★★☆ Mar 22, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Good service and helpful staff at train station thanks
