Bangkok to Ranong Destination Reviews

The VIP-24 bus was quite comfortable for sleeping although some of the seat components (e.g. footrest) weren't functioning well. What was rather confusing and troublesome though was that the seats advertised on the website were not available (I was contacted after booking that onlz VIP-32 seats were available) and that I couldn't reserve specific seats. The departure time was also one hour later than advertised and communicated by email. And then to my positive surprise, when I picked up the tickets at the bus station I was able to upgrade to VIP-24 after all. Confusing... The stewardess on the bus was also rather rough and slightly unfriendly.

Booked from Bangkok all the way to Koh Phayam island! We booked the 17pm bus and the website automatically booked us the 10am travel from Ranong to the pier for the 11:30am boat.. the owner of the tour company called us & said he could move us to the earlier bus from Ranong 6:30am & the earlier bus 8:30am so we weren’t waiting around! Everything super straight forward & nice, free water, jam sandwich & juice, also a really good bus for the price, can stretch your chair out into a bed basically! I would 100% use again!

Actually, the bus left another hour later according to their channel as announced by 12go asia. Would be good to update the times.

Leg room was amazing, you have a good meter if not 1.5m in front of you, so you can properly recline your seat, almost horizontally. You get a blanket, a small pillow, a bottle of water and a small pack of snacks. The bus is a bit run down, but nothing dramatic. The weird thing is the stop in the middle of the night at a 24hours restaurant (it was around 12am/1am), where you don't realise how long you have, if you have time for getting food, and it's a bit stressful. Having a sandwich ready with you will make it easier I reckon.

Comfortable bus, left on time. There is an accompanying assistant driver who checks tickets and distributes water and snacks. We traveled too fast, sometimes it was not very pleasant because it was shaking, although in general the roads are very good. Because of the high speed we arrived 2 hours earlier than the time indicated on the website and had to wait a long time for the boat from Ranong to the island, which was not convenient at all.

No information about any stops in between and the length of it and about the arrival time. I nearly missed the boat to the Islands. A bit more conversation between staff and costumers was great! The luggage was handled very rude.
Bus VIP 24, Niomit Tour (นิวมิตรทัวร์), Mar 9, 2020
he bus left on time there is enough space for the legs the inclination of the backrest is correct you have a bottle of water a drink and a sandwich as well as a small cushion and a very appreciable cover Preferably take the front seats and not the middle one because you have the cold air of the central door and especially not the last row against the window a lot of vibrations in the bus We arrived with an hour of advance which was not for us a disadvantageBig negative point the toilets impracticable impossible to sit because of the partition of which you make your needs in balance and have the muscular nostrils :)
