The driver came far too early, the open vehicle was okay but I was in constant fear our luggage would drop off. In hindsight I should simply have bought the ticket myself and take a grab taxi to the bus station. More comfortable, less waiting time, much cheaper.

Expected shared Air-con mini-van from hotel reception to thangaleng station, actually had to walk several minutes from hotel to get picked up open sided rickety tuk tuk that billowed black smoke whenever it pulled away, which came back into tuk tuk. Got to station on time but not as expected.

Really not a good experience. If I did it again I would pay the small amount more and take a private taxi

The minibus pick up was great. But beware that the train to Nong Khai doesn’t leave until 17:30 and there is no earlier train, so you don’t actually arrive until 17:45. The company needs to update the tour information.
