Passenger reviews out of total 1,624 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.

Cambodian part of the trip was OK but Thai part was a piece of shit. To the border, we arrived in time. Our passports were stamped and our luggage was taken over the border on carts. An officer caught a mototaxi to take me closer to the border. I walk with cruches. After my passport was stamped in Thailand I had to walk for about 30 min under rain asking at every corner where is Thero Express untill I reached some point where I was offered to wait. When I asiked about my luggage nobody paid attention to me. Then I was told to walk to a big bus which was some hundred meters away. When I reached the bus I asked about my two bags again. A superviser sent a guy to look for them and in five minutes he got back with one of my bags. Then another guy was sent to look for another bag and successfuly brought it back. But he wanted me to pay him five bucks for the service. Superviser showed no reaction. I said that I paid for all in Cambodia and got in the bus. At last we started and ariived to our destination at about half past ten PM.

Unproblematic ride with the night bus until the border. There you get the ticket for the bus in Thailand. After the crossing the border by yourself, you’ll find the busses the will bring you to Bangkok. Nice staff.

SLEEPER BUS IT IS NOT!! If you find it hard to sleep DO NOT book this method of travel. We boarded the bus and set off almost on time which was a bonus but then it all went wrong. We were on the 2nd row of lower beds so next to the entrance & exit, the driver and his companion laughed and talked and played LOUD music the whole journey ( it was impossible to sleep listening to that blasting down the bus ???? ) We stopped several times but the lack of communication was impossible to determine if we could get off or if it was a stop for everyone. Then around 4am the sounds of a screaming woman who had missed her stop to Siem Reap amongst her family of 5 was just ridiculous she begged and demanded the bus to stop for around 30mins before it finally came to a place and let them off We were then all ushered off the bus abruptly around 6.30am at the side of a busy roundabout area ( we had NO idea where we was ) I asked the driver BANGKOK? He just grunted but i didn’t recognize anything ???? After figuring out i needed to enter a small office a gentleman asked for our tickets and told me to wait outside with a tag around our necks, we were the only ones left to discover we had to go across the street to departures fill in our departure card inside our passports and walk over the border to Thailand alone. We waited in a line of people for around 60/70 minutes before being stamped and sent through passport control, the wait was horrendous no signs to follow, no one to tell you the way i just looked out for anyone with the same tag around their neck and hoped for the best. Around 8.30am 2 hours after being dropped off we were packed into a minibus for a further 5hour journey Thankfully nicer driver, stops for food and restrooms but the longest journey EVER!! 17 1/2 hours in total We were dropped by the side of the road near the BTS which is not the drop off on our ticket costing us more to reach our destination Budget travel, budget service i will never do it again ( but our things were safe for anyone stressing about that )

The flight was quick & efficient, great service. However Kiwi.com, 12go.asia’s partner first sent me my e-ticket to download at 4:20pm so I did & printed it @ a printer. Thinking I was all set I went to dinner and settled in for the night. Around 9:00 I got an email saying that additionally I needed to print my boarding pass. The timing 5 hours after I purchased my ticket, lack of communication & clarity coupled w/everything being closed really wreaked havoc on my night. It was very stressful and seemed unprofessional like a poor business model-to send the boarding passes 5 hours hence. I thought you should know. There is a notation that says you may be delayed or declined(understandable) but five hours in the middle of the night, is unacceptable.

It was ok, the wifi doesn't work, and if you travel alone you share a bed. This was in the very fine print.. they didn't speak english, so it was had to know where to go before and after, but it worked out juat fine

It was the bumpiest bus journey I have ever been on, even the smoothest of roads felt like it had huge potholes. If you value comfort at all, use a different bus provider

I’m 5’9 and I was too tall for the sleeper bus. I was with my boyfriend so things weren’t awkward but if you travel solo you’ll probably be squished in to essentially a single bed with a stranger

I took the hotel bus from Phnom Penh to Bangkok and have nothing to complain. Pleasant journey although it would have been nice to be informed about the shared bed on the first bus... Luckily I had a really nice woman I shared the bed with. The staff was nice and helpful, could communicate in English and the bus itself was clean. On the second bus I had charging option and WiFi and we had a short toilette and snack break. Would choose this company again.
