Passenger reviews out of total 5,833 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The bus driver is good-driving and arrive Ranong earlier than estimated. However, seats are not clean and the air-condition is not strong enough. It should be more well-prepared to become a good selection.

There was a big noise coming from the roof on the right back side, which were very annoying. And no toiletpaper. Otherwise everything was fine.

Punctual departure and arrival.. reclining seats were ok but not fantastic - more suited to 5 ft Thais than 6 ft brits. Info about dutration of stops would have been nice - hard to know if there was time for a toilet break when we stopped in the middle of the night. But generally a good service at a good price.

Better than I expected. I would have preferred the stops to be announced when we stop for a toilet break or at our destination! Also I think if the company was to provide dried fruits instead of an artifical baked bun they might get more people enjoying the offer. Can their not be water refills instead of plastic bottles. I know how Thailand are trying to reduce plastic waste. Thank you!

The bus driver was good we felt safe but the bus was a disaster. The first couple of hours were okay and then they turned the aircon off/down and it got HOT, smelly and extremely stuffy. The air was wet and no chance to open windows or to ask driver to turn the air con back on as they are separated from the passengers. At one stage I had water dripping constantly into my from one of the curtains, goodness knows where that was coming from... we were in the older bus and I’m sure if you’re in the new one it’s okay, but this was awful.

A normal bus experience! Free pillow, blanket, water and snack. Toilet on board although I didn't use it. Bus driver doesn't speak English so make sure you know where to get off the bus! also yes, they drive fast but if you're asleep then no worries :p!

First, music was being played through loudspeakers. At first, this was welcomed, but they kept increasing the volume until the bus looked like a mobile pop concert. The loud music ended when our bus broke down 4 hours into the trip and thus we had to wait idly, on the highway for 4 hours until the relief bus arrived. Quite inconvenient, made the already long trip even longer, in unbearable heat, without A/C. However, on the plus side, we were offered iced drinks and cold refreshing wipes, and used this time to bond with fellow passengers. The rest of the trip was uneventful and included the regular restroom and lunch stops.
