Passenger reviews out of total 1,129 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.

★★☆☆☆
Told when we got to the ticket office to check in that our bus had been cancelled. Got rushed onto an earlier bus and told we’d have to change, when we asked where we’d change, we got ignored. We got told to change seats multiple times. No one explained what was going on. Eventually got to our destination having not changed buses. We just had to hope for the best the whole way; terrible communication!

I maintain low standards when travelling Asia, but this exceeded expectations, the coach was spacious and comfortable. Only disappoint is that your dropped off 5 miles away from destination, so no choice but to get a taxi.

We connected with a very early morning ferry from George Town, on our way from Butterworth to Ipoh (and then on by bus to Cameron Highlands). Ferry connection was very easy, train was on schedule and very comfortable.
