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.

This was a surprisingly comfortable journey in a pretty good bus. The Air con worked and the seats were comfortable. We were late starting and late arriving but just by 30 mins which isnt bad.

From the hotel I transferred myself to the Souchai small sub office in town where I was warmly greeted arriving 15 minutes ahead of the departure time printed on the ticket; not 30 minutes prior as the Tuk Tuk I booked the night before decided not to come so I scrambled for another one.........,,,,,,,,,, Anyhow after the warm greeting in English I may add, I sat inside with my bag until for 15 minutes after the printed departure time on the ticket,, thinking the large bus was probably having in city traffic issues.................... Anyhow I was then about 0905 put into a lot electric buggy car where we then went around town to collect other guests from their hotels, this took 15 minutes from there on we drove to a large car park to find the bus awaiting and loaded out bags into the hold and boarded about 0925................ We then waited for a few more electric buggies to turn up discharging it’s lad of passengers across to the bus............ In the end we left about 0935 with the bus from van Vieng to Vientiane....... I did notice whilst sat waiting room the schedule out on a large roadside public poster was that the scheduled departure time of the bus was actually 0930 :)).......... En route we stopped at a roadside diner with the bus parked right at the door. The driver got out but he DID NOT say we were stopping or for how long so none of us knew if we could sit and eat, go to the toilet or what. In the end it seemed that most went to the bathroom and bought junk food as quickly as possible whilst staying close to the bus to avoid being left!! It would have been polite and more professional to have informed us exactly what was going on; no harm done........... The bus was in good shape, very clean and everyone working for the company were well dressed and came across happy to be doing their job............ The driving style was safe and the trip went well....... We were dropped off at the roadside with the vultures ready to pounce; Tuk Tuks.. Lucky for me my hotel was walking distance. Plus there was an ATM right at the bus door which was great help too........... ......In all the service is very good and I recommend it to anyone considering this trip.....

Bus was on time and we arrived early. Minibus in good condition, but very cramped. Driving was bumpy, fast and erratic at times (but have come to expect this while travelling SE asia!) Overalls not a bad journey at all
