Everything went very smooth.

The bus took a little longer than expected. We took about 13 hours to drive from Bangkok to Krabi.

Overall experience was fine, but no water in flight was inconvenient with child. Staff helpful, flight on time.

Staff were lovely and helpful at starting and ending bus terminals, seats were comfy and reclined back quite far making it easy to have a little sleep. Also a free meal is included :)

bus ride itself was fine bus had a toilet and seats reclined alot however the time it states u will arrive in Krabi it's about 2 hours out maybe because of the stops to drop of goods. I don't mind it taking longer but I think if they could update the arrival time to a much more realistic time.

A 14 hour bus journey. I’d be lying if I said it was great.
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Mar 17, 2022
Driver assistant was moving through the bus all time. Once when more passengers come to bus the assistant started to move my bag from seats in front of me. Why he didn't ask me first? I know that I have to free seat for another passenger. But let me do it myself! He doesn't have right to touch my staff in front of me when I can clearly see what is happening. My other bag downstairs was just completely moved from place where I put it initially. It was flipped over and just was underneath other passengers bags. Also that assistant while moving in bus once just step on my foot and said nothing! Is simple sorry is so hard to tell? During all that trip I was wondering why some people completely don't respect other people and their staff. Maybe this happens in all Asia? The good things are: nice website, ability to pay with credit card, no need to print PDF to get tickets on counter, very helpful information in PDF with map.
