We came expected chaos - which it was, but seemed organised and we were led to our bus without too much trouble. Great trip once onboard, comfortable coach if a little old and and informative staff. Good to have a rest stop a little over halfway for some great food and a toilet break. Less than 30 mins delayed arrival. Can’t complain!

The departure was not clearly marked but people helped to show us where to stand. We had someone unofficially point out where the bus departure spot was. It would be helpful to have that noted somewhere. The ride was comfortable and stopped in a great place to eat for 20 minutes. Well worth the stop for delicious soup!

Despite our low expectations, it was a very enjoyable ride with a stop at a local food market. Definitely worth it for the price,

Once o arrived they told me that there is no 9am bus so I waited until 10. Once it came the ride was a bit bumpy I'm some areas but I had a good driver and it seemed fairly quick. It was a small bus and was cramped in the back so bad that I had to ride with my arms/shoulders forward. If money is an issue then it is worth it but I would most likely take one again, maybe a larger bus.

Prelude. One cannot judge a 3rd world country too much for its lack of efficiency in transportation. A small story on timing. I had a mini van from Surat Thani to Phuket booked through 12go, the van was booked to depart at 12pm and arrive at 4pm. I arrived at 10:30am and asked if I can be placed in the next van which is scheduled to leave at 11am. They said it was fine without any charge, yey! After some wait, the van arrived at 11:40am. Fine, still under 12, right? We departed promptly. Air conditioning was enough. After some stops we got all the people along with random cargo which the driver was delivering to some businesses. So technically, not only were they delivering people, they were also delivering packages to people? Note that these vans are not meant for almost any baggage space. The major thing is that we arrived at around 5:10pm. So not only was it later than the original 4pm arrival time, but it was 2 hours late for the 11am's trip. So yes, be prepared for major delays and sardine like atmosphere. I just wonder if I took the 11:30am-5:30pm bus, would it have taken longer? Definitely more space, but maybe at the expense of conditioning? Good luck in your travels!

Downside is that there is very little legroom, my husband is very long and could barely put his legs down, unpleasant ......... advice seat choice. We were very satisfied with the driver, he drove safely and well.
