We were late because of traffic, but without extra charges we could take another bus a few hours later. No mini-van, but a lardger one. Good solution and good transfer

Good communication about pick-up location and time. Good trip with tourists and some locals.
Van Regional 14pax, Mama Travel and Tour (มาม่า ทราเวล), Jul 28, 2022
Bus was 30 minutes early and when it was full, we departed. So we were early at the destination and that was very nice. The driver was very helpful to get out luggage in and out. We didn’t get the vehicle we’ve paid for/ordered. We ordered a mini van but we were put on a bus, because that was the first vehicle available. Not directly a problem for us, but there was no leg room in the bus. We had to sit the full +2 hours in a weird angle because of that.

Yes, this is a travel agent. Yes they take you to another location to get on a bigger bus. And yes this is Thailand, if you aren’t ready for an adventure, don’t come here.. go to an upscale tourist resort- the lady was nice the trip was nice

A very stressful trip : We arrived at the adress but the shop was empty and obviously closed. We called the nulber but did not understand the response and then they hung up on us. People on the street saw us struggling during half an hour (because we arrived early as indicated on the reservation). They told us where to knock (a few doors up on the left) and the woman took 10min to open the door (i think we woke her up). During this time we looked at the google reviews and saw that sometimes they just took you to the bus station if the van is not full so we started to stress out. The woman was not explaining what was gonna happen. Finally, a van arrived and we were told to get in but further information was given, we did nog know if we were going to the bus station or kanchanaburi. In the end we arrived but it was stressful. We think that if people in the street didnt help us we would never have travelled with this van.

How to get from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi by Van

Van is a convenient option to get from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi. Van tickets are affordable, vans are generally do a faster job than buses, vans offer a good choice of departures.

Depending on the van type, each vehicle can accommodate between 12 and 15 passengers. Yet an evident drawback of travelling by van is limited space for the luggage. In most cases you will need to keep your bags, backpacks or suitcases under your seat or in the aisle. Thus van is not the best choice if you travel with huge luggage. F this is the case, consider buying a separate ticket for your bags or choose bus instead.

On certain routes, vans are your only choice of transportation as no buses, trains or flights are available between those destinations.

It is a popular question whether it is necessary to book van tickets in advance. Though some routes feature a lot of departures, we still highly recommend booking your seat especially if you are going to take one of the last vans of the day; travelling during weekends, public holidays or busy tourist seasons; are in a group of two or more and want to travel on the same van.

Here is the list of companies that run regular vans between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi and offer tickets for online booking.

How far is from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi?

Vans follow the same routes as buses do. Thus the driving distance between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi will be about X km. Some vans do not take the shortest route to Kanchanaburi and make detours to pick up and drop off passengers en route. If this is the case, it will result in a longer travel time – you can see it when choosing your ticket.

How long does it take to get from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi by Van?

Most vans need from 2h 50m to 3h 20m hours to get from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi Note though that travel time depends greatly on traffic conditions. Traffic can be dense around the rush hour at both your departure point and destination. Weather conditions – e.g. heavy rain – often result in longer travel time, too.

Before booking your van tickets, check how long the trip with each operator takes as some vans follow longer routes to Kanchanaburi or make detours.

Also, it is important to know that van companies that accept online booking offer scheduled van departures; yet there are also some vans which depart only when full, and in certain cases the waiting period can be long. Thus choosing an operator that runs vans on a set schedule is always a better idea.

How much does it cost to get from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi by Van?

When using a van, the fare or ticket price for travelling from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi is pre-computed. This usually includes toll fees, gas and other overheads. But, it is recommended to read the details and ask for clarifications when this is not clear at the onset.

Pre-computed fares for vans can be expensive but unlike buses and trains; you would not need to buy a ticket for each passenger. For a big group of 12 or more people, this translates to huge savings compared to getting multiple taxis.

This makes it a cheap option for travelling when in groups. The van service will also not charge extra for bags and luggage, as long as it fits inside the van.

Best Rated Companies for this Route

Getting a van service for your group can offer extra space, comfort and convenience not found in other transport options. Unlike taxis or buses which have numerous trips per day, a van service is usually scheduled. But some van services do follow a scheduled departure time. Please check our listings for such services.

Having your entire group together for a long trip can add to the enjoyment. This can allow your group to discuss and even sing to your heart's content without fear of bothering others.

Just like taxis, the advantage of travelling by van is that you can ask the driver to stop by stores, supermarkets and other establishments. You can stop anywhere at any time since you are basically renting the van and not just paying for taxi fare. You can use this opportunity to take epic groupie pics at local landmarks and tourist spots.

Vans are especially useful when travelling with large and sensitive equipment like photography setups and large computers. Trunks and compartments might not be a safe holding area for fragile packages. Placing them inside the roomy and well-padded interior of van will make it more secure and safe.
