Bus Minibus 12, Virak Buntham Express, Jan 17, 2020
It was ok. We were delayed a few hours but that’s to be expected really. A small van and a bit of reckless driving but all things we’re used to travelling around the world :) the driver was a nice and friendly guy.

Mini bus broke down. Mini bus not maintained & unroadworthy. Mini bus driver was reckless and drove too fast, took chances with passengers lives.
