Van Regional 14pax, Tara Tour and Travel (ธาราทัวร์แอนด์ทราเวล), Jan 11, 2022
A very stressful trip : We arrived at the adress but the shop was empty and obviously closed. We called the nulber but did not understand the response and then they hung up on us. People on the street saw us struggling during half an hour (because we arrived early as indicated on the reservation). They told us where to knock (a few doors up on the left) and the woman took 10min to open the door (i think we woke her up). During this time we looked at the google reviews and saw that sometimes they just took you to the bus station if the van is not full so we started to stress out. The woman was not explaining what was gonna happen. Finally, a van arrived and we were told to get in but further information was given, we did nog know if we were going to the bus station or kanchanaburi. In the end we arrived but it was stressful. We think that if people in the street didnt help us we would never have travelled with this van.

It was a good trip, but we had our reservation at 9 and we could only join a minivan at 10.

The bus got us to our destination in reasonable time, but there are issues about the operator's COVID precautions, which need to be improved. Specifically, drivers need to wear masks continuously, and there need to be more reminders about social distancing for all those onboard.

All was great - a bit more information about how to get to the bus station would be better, as it is hard to get there, even with taxi from dowtown.

They made many unscheduled stops picking up more people then I could fit in the van people were sitting in the aisle sitting anywhere they could almost 30 people in the van that I think was set up to handle 22 or 24

I was too late to catch my bus. The lovely lady at the terminal just put me on the next bus without charging me!
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Oct 28, 2021
We left 20 minutes ahead of the time which was good but we lost this advantage in the second part of the trip. The bus stopped several times, some people boarded just for a few kilometers, it looked like a local bus. Because of the detours and numerous stops, it took us 2h45 to arrive, despite the fact there was no traffic. Much too long. The bus was bigger than a van which was good but it was not super comfortable, little space for the legs.
Van Regional 14pax, Hanuman Tour Siam (หนุมานทัวร์สยาม), Mar 18, 2021
The bus left 30 minutes early, and arrived 1 hour ahead of advertised schedule
Van Minibus, Win Happy (บริษัท กาญจนบุรีเดินรถ 81 จำกัด), Oct 22, 2020
Driver was nice and other staff. Bus left a little early as soon as ticketed customers boarded. They did a head count. Quick and uneventful... perfect !

Vans are a great alternative - or, in many cases - your only option - if you need to travel overland within one and the same province or neighbouring provinces or states. Vans ply the roads between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
