For a 13 hour bus trip it was fine. 1 stop for lunch. That’s it. The bus is old but overall clean, there’s aircon and toilet. You are getting what you are paying.

Bus doesn't provide anything as they said in web site , and service also very bad

Bus VIP 32, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Sep 2, 2020
This VIP bus was like 1st class on a flight. Individual booth-like seats (no seat-in-front-in-your-face) with button-operated seat adjustment, 220V power, water and snacks, and a break half way with an above-average table buffet. Would definitely travel this way again.

What mode of transportation is the best one for my route?

Flights

Flying is the fastest and often the most expensive way to travel from Bangkok to Phuket, but with a bit of luck you can score very good deals for as little as THB 970.

Things to remember: Note that some of the airlines may have restrictions on checked luggage weight or require paying extra for check-in, choosing seats or transportation of oversized luggage.

If opting for a flight, calculate the time you will spend getting to and from the airports as well as the waiting time before your flight, getting through immigration in case of an international flight and recovering your checked luggage.

In certain cases all these procedures can add no less than 5 hours to your total travel time.

Bus

Travelling from Bangkok to Phuket overland will inevitably take longer but in many cases it is the cheapest option if you opt for a bus.

Things to remember: For a more comfortable ride opt for a higher-class bus wherever possible. These buses usually have soft reclining seats and are equipped with air-conditioning and on-board toilets.

They often include water, snacks or a light lunch into your ticket price and make bathroom stops en-route.

Taxi

Some travellers consider taxi to be the most convenient form of overland transport thanks to flexible departure times, a possibility to choose the size of the car you need, and a hassle-free door-to-door service.

Things to remember: If you are planning to make detours during your trip, discuss it with your driver or service provider in advance as it may affect the price.

Van

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 Phuket, 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.
