Online price is way more expensive than the counter price (50 baht) even though I need to pay the processing fee to the company. I asked the counter, they said this price was for foriegners. WAIT!! You can make the same!! HOWEVER the bus was good and safe.

Very nice people were there when we arrived at the boarding spot. This gave us a nice feeling since we knew that we were on the right place the right time. They gave us some minor instructions and made a nice talk with us. Really enjoyed this way of traveling. The trip itself was fine. It is ofcourse long and there is never enough leg space. But you will probably need a private jet to fit those needs. Therefor especially for what we paid it was perfect.

Total duration was 3:30 hours (as promised). Meeting point was located on khao San road. From there it took us 1 hour to get to the central bus station in bkk. There we were transferd to a local coachbus that brought us to Kanchanaburi. Eventhough, the bus ride was ok.

Booking process ran smoothly, but we were made to buy an extra ticket for our bags. After a 20min delay the bus ran pretty much on time, stopping a few times to pick up/drop off. Being a minibus it was very cramped and uncomfortable for most of the trip, but I'd do it again for short trips
