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.

The nightbus was comfortable, but it was really really cold in the bus, because of the aircon.

★★★☆☆
Bus was not very comfortable. One 30 min break at 2:00 am - with no reason you have to wake up in the middle of the night. Over 2h hours waiting between bus and boat - pointless. Bus should go at least 1,5h later from Bangkok then waiting time would be shorter.

Everything was ok. The night bus is confortable enough to sleep all the time. Between the bus and the ferry you have to wait two hours (more or less) but there are enough bench to sleep on and there is a bar, so it's not so bad.

Very clear instructions were given when boarding the bus and it was a very comfy journey to Chumphon with loads of leg room, which was just as well as we were on the bus for 7 hours. We did have a break at the Lomprayah office in Hua Hin for sandwiches and refreshments which was very welcome. There was another bus which left at the same time as ours which went direct, without a stop. At the Pier in Chumphon there were shops selling food and drinks and we joined a queue for our ferry to Koh Tao. The ferry was comfortable and very fast but it was a very rough crossing which didn’t bother my wife and I but many people were ill on the boat. The staff were very attentive and helped people who needed it. We arrived on Kao Tao on time. Great journey. Great way to travel!

★☆☆☆☆
Many of the seats were wet (about 4). The operator said we could move seats but then when we stopped in Hua Hin, those seats we sat in were sold and they were making us sit back in those wet seats. They got a towel for one person to sit on (which was nice) but others didn’t get that. If someone pays for a seat, it should be dry and seatable. Next time, you should talk with the other Lomprayah branches and tell them a few seats aren’t available or give the customer the option to sit in seat and get refunded.

Lomprayah is the best! Everything was perfectly organized, almost like in Germany. I travelled several times with lomprayah now. From Bangkok to Koh Tao, from Koh Tao to Koh Phangan an from Koh Phangan to Koh Samui Airport. They always sell also combination tickets to a very good price. When you leave the ferry, or bus, there's always someome waiting for you to pick you up. It's save and clean. In the busses they eben have fresh washed blankets. Nobody would ever steal something. I would never choose another company if there's a choice! Lomprayah really surprised and convinced me.

★☆☆☆☆
Overnight bus ride was a bad choice. Cabin lights stayed on through most of the ride. Driver and his partner talked loudly with one another throughout much of the ride, probably to keep each other awake. The AC blasted with unnecessary power the entire night, so take a jacket. The bus stopped at around 02:00 for bathroom break in the middle of nowhere, and then it dropped us at the pier 2.5 hours before boarding the ferry, so most passengers found park benches and tried to sleep until the 07:30 boarding. Once on the ferry, the waters were so choppy that passengers on the upper deck were thrown from their seats (including us). We were soaked within 15 minutes and sea sick within 30. Our bags were also drenched. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE. Sit inside if you can, at least until the waters calm down later in the season. The ferry employees are helpful with sick bags, which came in handy for more than a dozen passengers on our particular ride. Overall, both bus and ferry services were effective - we got to our destinations on time, so... there's that.

Great trip though it would have been a little better if they were proper sleeper buses. Also arriving at the ferry port in good time before the ferry is understandable, but 2 hours before (at 5am) seemed a bit much ... could have left BKK a bit later to save waiting. Unless they have a good reason to reach their midpoint stopoff at a certain time, in which case I take that back.

The seats have little room for the legs and even if you try to check in earlier is impossible to get the most spacious seats (number 3 and 4). It left before the time described in the ticket reservation and arrived earlier at the dock. So there was plenty of waiting time before getting the speed ferry. Nevertheless, all those things were expected.

Well, you get from point A to to point B and both the bus and the ferry is quit comfortable. However, there was severe lack of communication at the start of the trip. Nobody understood who was supposed to go on what bus and when I asked the guy who seemed to be in charged I received a very rude answer. He seemed to be very angry and was not of much help. For everyone's sake: 1. Put someone in charge of answering questions who speaks English well enough for you to understand and who is friendly to the customers. 2. Explain from the get go who is getting on which bus. It could for example be a good idea to put a little sign in the front of the bus.

The bus was on time and confortable but we had no idea we could feel so sick on the catamaran. The waves were very choppy and everyone around me was feeling really sick.

Such big company as Lomprayah should have some space when people can sit and wait for the bus and not let people sit on the ground at the middle of crowdy street. They have the worst buses in whole Thailand! The bus was so uncomfort and there is no service on the board (no water, no snack, no wifi). These things are normally at other bus companies in Thailand.

Also good to do by yourself. The only negative thing: they don't gave you some food or drinks, you had to bought it by yourself! The A/C to cold as always.

Nachdem wir im Lomprayah Office unsere Tickets abgeholt hatten sollten wir zum Abfahrtstreffpunkt nahe der Khao San Road gehen. Dort wurden dann nach und nach Bändel für das Gepäck sowie Sitzplätze vergeben. Anschließend warteten ca. 300 Leute (wahrscheinlich mehr) auf insgesamt 10(!) Busse (nach Koh Tao, Koh Samui und Phuket), von denen kein einziger kam. Von den Verantwortlichen vor Ort gab es spärliche Auskunft nur auf Anfrage. Dann hieß es, dass die Busse alle eine Stunde Verspätung hätten. Nach der besagten Stunde (da war es dann ca. 23 Uhr) hieß es, dass wir nochmals eine Stunde warten müssten. Auf Nachfrage, wo die Busse denn seien wurde uns mitgeteilt, dass die Busse mit 25km/h unterwegs im Stau steckten und 113 km vor Bangkok wären (wie die Veranstalter mit den Daten auf 1h Wartezeit kamen wusste keiner genau). Uns wurde dann mitgeteilt, dass der Sonntag der letzte der lokalen Ferien sei und dass deshalb viel los wäre. Auf die Frage, ob man das nicht auch zuvor wüsste konnte uns auch niemand eine Antwort geben. Vor allem eine ehrliche und klare Information zu Beginn (um 21 Uhr) wäre hilfreich gewesen, dann hätte man die Zeit besser überbrücken können. Auch Ersatzbusse waren nicht vorgesehen, ebenso wenig wie eine Entschädigung. Zwischenzeitlich waren dann alle Mitarbeiter verschwunden und der Stand leer. Die Zeitpuffer zwischen Ankunft und Abfahrt der Busse sind so eng gewählt, dass selbst bei normalem Verkehr der Plan wahrscheinlich nie eingehalten wird (der Bus kommt um 20:30 in Bangkok an und soll um 21:00 wieder abfahren - für das Entladen, Reinigen und Beladen bleibt also eine halbe Stunde, vorausgesetzt der Bus kommt pünktlich an). Um 01:15 kamen dann endlich alle Busse nacheinander. Daraufhin wurden die Passagiere nach Farben aufgerufen, welche auf den Sitznummern vermerkt war. Später stellte sich heraus, dass mehreren Personen im gleichen Bus der selbe Sitz zugeordnet war (3 Personen hatten die Sitznummer 10). Um 01:30 konnten wir abfahren. Erfreulich war, dass alle Wartenden das Chaos mit Humor nahmen. Eine Entschuldigung von Seiten Lomprayahs wäre höflich gewesen. Der Bus war in Ordnung, es gab ausreichend Platz und eine Decke (allerdings keine Getränke o.ä.). Ein Pluspunkt ist, dass die Fähre vom gleichen Anbieter ist und daher wartet.

I know that it is cheap transport, but there are limits at indecency. Negative : - A bus that smelled from the start like a public toilet, - people that are treated like cattle, - no information, - no cleaning of toilets, - unfriendly services... - eating in the middle of the night ?? - this is an insult for the Thai-legendary-freindliness! Are the so fed up by tourists? Positive: - Internet booking is top - piss-smell was all oat surpresseble by the good smell of the blankets! - fast boot/bus - efficient and OK service at the BK-office

I was charged for insurance that I declined. I emailed and phoned your office, but no one resolved my issue one week later. Trip was fine, but I am very angry with your lack of response and false charges, and I will NOT recommend your service to anyone until you refund the insurance I declined.

Journey itself was fine. Bus much better than I expected, even provided blankets. However had to wait in the middle of the road for an hour and a half with my luggage as they wouldn't look after it once I had collected the ticket. Overall, good value for money

We had to wait in a line to pick up our tickets for the bus for about half an hour in an overcrowded, understaffed ticket office near khao San. The 'sleeper bus' was not actually a sleeper, but instead a two level bus with seats that recline about 45 degrees, making it very difficult to sleep. The bus left at 9:30 at night and arrived at the pier at something like 4am, where everyone had to get out. Then we waited at the pier for several hours until the ferry left at what was supposed to be 7:00 but ended up being later. The ferry itself is very nice, but the air conditioning couldn't really keep up with the Number of people on the boat. When we finally disembarked, it was 9:45am, an hour later than planned. As you might imagine, sleeping during this fragmented journey was very difficult. Therefore, I would not recommend this trip unless you really need to save time.

Bus The first part of the trip was by bus. The bus itself was clean and appeared well maintained. It was not a proper sleeper bus but the seats did recline a reasonable way to make it (as far as buses goes) fairly comfortable to sleep. This part scored lower however because despite being asked to be at the meeting point for 8.30pm the bus didn't actually turn up till 10pm (1hr after departure time) Boat The second part was by Catamaran to Koh Tao. This was probably the most uncomfortable part of the journey as far too many people were squeezed on it. People including myself had to sit on plastic stools in aisles or where ever there was an inch of floor space due to the number of people on it. They squeezed 4 large coach loads as well as a large number of people who got the train on the one boat. This didn't make for a very pleasant boat ride. This may not be a regular occurrence as we were traveling with them one day before the full moon party so I suspect normally it would not be as crowded. On the plus side it was reasonable price and the vehicles were well maintained.

I don't know why the driver did not put the Air con on. It was roasting hot. And it was my worse ride ever. I did not mind the lack of stops and slow driving. But in a hot country with lots of foreigners who is not used to the hot is like been in a oven. I have been on it before and I enjoyed it. But this time.... no...

A little bit of chaos at check in point, same amount later at meeting point. Information sharing could be better, like some digital displays informing all people about status, not just those whom asked. It was rather cold in bus, but bus trip was otherwise smooth. We have similar trip from koh samui to Bangkok in few weeks, and we wont mind undergo that again. Overall it was good.

Very chaotic check in. Khao San road does not seem like the ideal place to have the bus station ( it is not really even a bus station) and there was little direction or organization in how to find the right bus. Sticker system was an odd choice. The buses were definitely nice though they smelled like the bathroom. The boat ride part seemed more organized and smooth so if that can just happen at the start with the buses it would have been a better experience. We were just coming from Vietnam who has a great bus system so perhaps that impacted our negative thoughts about this one.

Got to the office at 4pm, as my train arrived in Bangkok at 3pm. They then said I can't leave my bag as check in isn't until 7.30pm. Nowhere does it mention this on any correspondence. Otherwise, I wouldn't have struggled around khao San with my two bags! Checked in at 7.30pm and it was chaos, everyone checking in at the same time. Why not do check in time earlier to spread the people out? Then waited at the meeting point from 8.30pm, which again was chaos, everyone sat around with no proper information. You just hoped the guy organising it saw your coloured sticker and called you in time. The buses arrived at 10pm instead of 9pm. I also didn't know we would be on the bus for so long as it also didn't state we'd be leaving from chumphon. The buses were a little small, as I'm six foot, but it's Asia, so it's a to be expected. Uncomfortable for 9 hours. All in all it was actually ok, I just think more organisation at the lomprayah office and more information on the 12go.asia emails is needed. It's cheaper than flying.

Was great, apart from the waiting time I find it too long. Nearly 2 hours waiting at Khao San road and another 2 hours waiting at the pier. It's like wasting time and it's tiring as well. Bus ride was good because I have 2 seats to myself, but don't expect this to be those travel bus, 8 hours ride without descending your back and no leg support can be suffering. Location is however convenient (Khaosan) and the bus will stop you right at the pier to wait for the ferry. Ferry ride was good too. Spacious.

I had the most scary ride in any kind of transport I've ever had, and I've had plenty. The bus was for the most part ok, however nothing prepared any of the passengers to what the ferry would become. A trip that is supposed to take 1.5h turned into a horror that lasted 3h+. The scene was pretty appalling: a deadly silence, only interrupted by people throwing up (80% of the passengers I would say), asking for more bags. There was even a person that couldn't hold it anymore and started crying, for the entire duration of the journey. The bumpy ride of 4+ meter waves didn't fall short of screams on every way down. Now, that'd be fun for a couple of times in a roller coaster, but as you see it perpetuating with no conceivable concern for safety, especially when water starts coming in in heavy quantities by the air conditioning in the ceiling, and also when the ceiling itself starts breaking, one can't but hope that waves do not become worse, leaving a very unrelenting feeling of fear and worry that the standards are simply not the same, and making one wonder why did nobody at least warn of this. On a side note, no other ferries went out that day, so we were probably unlucky, the staff one can guess made the decision on their own and decided the money loss and administrative overhead were probably more worth than the safety of the passengers. What is more, no single statement on the kind of experience that lied in front of us was made. It felt bad enough to be there, but it was even worse to feel trapped, uninformed, with no escape, once inside the hell ride. This journey is probably a safe, nice experience, if you are going on a Sunny day. But given the absolute lack of any security concern the ferry driver had on the passengers, I fully suggest *you* find out what the weather forecast is, and evaluate the implications of taking what can become an absolute horror ferry experience. The staff is not going to do that for you.

we were told to check in at 7pm for the bus, which was fine, then headed to where we were told to go to get on the bus, once everyone got on the bus, we left around 8pm, I thought it was quite comfy, we sat at the back of the bus, the seats went right back and didn't have to worry about the person behind us. we stopped off at some place where you can go to the toilet. (bring toilet paper with you) and there is plenty of stalls and shops to buy food and drink. we stayed there for around 30 minuets. we then headed to the ferry terminal which we had to wait 2hrs.. luckily there is a coffee shop that's open and a shop. also there is a charging station if you need to charge your phone up. once you get there you have to check in on the ferry I would advise you do this right away as the amount of people there is huge and you might be waiting a while. we got on the ferry around 7am. and we were staying in Kho Tao. that took around 1.5hrs and the ride was fine. only thing I would say is that there's not a lot of communication and you have to keep asking for advise, and some of the Thai people can be abrupt. (I guess they are busy but that's why I feel they need someone shouting out giving instructions) but now I've done it once I would feel very confident doing it again.

Check in at the Lomprayah office in Bangkok opened at 7,30pm for the 9pm bus. No point getting there any earlier than that. Rude staff at the office. Nice bus and boat tho, you get more comfort than what you pay for. Don't expect todo anything the day you arrive on the island tho. You will be tired.

Was given an alternate location for pick up not given proper directions. Directions should have been given in English and in Thai with an exact address! When we did finally get to the right spot there was no signage indicating that they were in the back corner behind a building in an abandoned parking lot. Other than the ferry was perfect.

Dear Beth,
Thank you very much for your message and the comment. Lomprayah informed us on short notice about the change of the new location. It happened because of the expected traffic jams during the Songkran festival. We did not have a chance to check the place on our own, hence we had to use and trust the information given from the operator. Usually Lomprayah departs from more shiny places than abandoned parking lots. We are sorry for the inconvenience and glad that you found it on time and enjoyed the trip. Hope to see you again soon :)

I paid for extra service but it didn't make a difference from other people that got cheaper tickets. On the other hand, the times were wrong and we actually arrived much earlier. Making this a better and shorter trip, still disrupts the planning.

Thanks for your comment, Carlos. Premium service allows you to change tickets and means we provide premium support, when needed. You did not ask for any support, so how could we be of service? A trip over more than 800 kilometer in Thailand, including bus and ferry - nobody can give you an exact timing for such a journey. We are glad to hear that you arrived early, and not late.
