Passenger reviews out of total 339 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 trip started badly when I got to the Hanoi Bus Station and counter 57, I kept trying to give my voucher in exchange for ticket as I was instructed to do. I was told nothing and kept getting sent to sit down. It got to 5 minutes until the bus (time written on my 12goAsia booking) was due to leave until someone told me it was due to leave an hour later and then I was asked to pay for my ticket, I had to repeat again and again I had already paid and argue with the person in charge before I got my ticket. I found my bus and it was ok, nothing special or terrible. Our bus journey took 30 hrs in total (i timed it out of curiousity), we had a few stops but the length of time was mostly due to the deliveries being loaded on the bus. We stopped very often in Vietnam to pick them up and a lot in Laos to drop them off. Overall not as bad as I had thought and i came well prepared with lots of films. Most of those of us travelling slept ok, at one point the bus turned on the radio for us all to hear quite late in on the 2nd night at a deafening volume which was not so great so i suggest earplugs. Expect very little and you cannot be disappointed.

The bus left one hour later, than originally planned, but they told me already at the counter. Instead of having chosen a Saturday bus, it was definitely one of those that is "below my expectations". No electricity, no wifi, no toilets, no space for sitting, no space for the legs. Luckily in the beginning and towards the end the bus was not too crowded, so that you could actually make yourself comfortable. There were several stops on the way for food and toilet. Border passing took more than two hours. But in the end I arrived after 26.5 hours. As I was the only western tourist, it appeared to me, that all the other guests were really nice and even showed me where to eat and so on

Bus was delayed by 3 hours without explanation. The staff were very cold and rude to the western tourists not giving us information at any point. Leg room was poor and had no usb ports
