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.
