Bus station was reasonable clean. Staff was friendly and can speak good English. Bus was clean and seat was spacious. Refreshments were provided, sufficient stops for dinner and toilet breaks. Travelling on low season hence bus was not full. Hopefully can reduce the price as well in comparison to the local bus price.
