Bangkok to Kanchanaburi Destination Reviews

We were late 30 minutes but the staff were lovely. Air con in the bus is too much, it made me sick. If you ask people to bring their jackets and apologise for not offering blankets, why in the world don’t you just lower the air conditioning on the bus? It seems like the simpler solution.

You can book online, though takes some effort to find the desired information.

Yes, this is a travel agent. Yes they take you to another location to get on a bigger bus. And yes this is Thailand, if you aren’t ready for an adventure, don’t come here.. go to an upscale tourist resort- the lady was nice the trip was nice

The location on the map was wrong, there is two terminals shown, don’t go to Mochit Intercity Van Terminal, its actually Minibus Station Chatuchak (if you were dropped at the wrong station initially like we were, you may need to cross a footbridge and then go straight ahead from the stairs). Otherwise, the trip itself was fine, no problems. Getting the tickets wasn’t so cut and dry; we were passed from counter to counter thinking we were going to miss the bus for waiting on the guy who was answering a call? Fortunately even at 10 minutes passed our departure, due to waiting, we still got on the bus fine.

Everything was really good. Bus was on Time, the driver was really nice and drove very good. All in all very good would recommend it.

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.
Van Minibus, Monsiri Travel Kanchanaburi (มณฑ์สิริ แทรเวล กาญจนบุรี), Jan 9, 2022
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.

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.
