Even though we originally booked 2 lower births in a cabin. After a couple of stops the guard insisted that I moved to the upper birth to allow a lady to have the lower one. But the upper birth was comfortable once I had managed to get up there. The guard knocked on the door to let us know that our station was next and directed us to our exit.

first-class compartment is overpriced. For more than 130$ you have very poor breakfast and hot soft drinks and beer (that should be cold actually), no toiletries, no towel, even no trainman in our coach.
AC works well.
Toilet is clear.
Wifi is promised but doesn't work.

Someone went into my bag and stole money while I was sleeping

All was very good but there was no wi-fi even though it's supposed to be provided.

We are 2hours late. Driver stop every 2 hours for do nothing. Was smoking inside the bus whole night. It was disgusting for everyone but he doesn’t care. We paid extra money for a bus confortable and it wasn’t. No wifi. Not recommend!

I’m easy to please. The VNR train wasn’t what I booked or paid for but the views are the same from any window. I was bumped from Lehman and placed on a VNR car. It seems this is too commonplace. The communication from 12go.asia was top notch. Timely and thorough.

Overall experience was good. Seats were comfortable private. However, no toilet paper or running water. Tv didn’t work.

Easy to book, details confirmed within hours and clear information in the mail.
Arrives at pick up point where a minibus picked a handful of people and we then went to another location.
It took about 1h to get sorted and separated in buses but then we were on our way.
Ride was OK, seats were comfortable enough but a lot of beeping and movement meant I woke up several times overnight. Arrived to destination as advertised. Good value for money, would recommend the VIP one as it has charging points and newer seats. I'd use it again

Both the lower and upper berth were long enough for us (at least 185 cm). The air conditioner was weak, so it wasn't very cold. The sheet doesn't cover the entire bed, so either bring your own sheet or wear pyjamas.

The berth are really really hard, almost impossible for me to sleep. The train is shaking so much you have the impression to be on Harry Potter's magic bus. But the train was very clean, personnel very polite and we were on perfect time !
