I'd use them again but for sure a little better communication on expectations. Like the drivers will stop at various point and the boarder crossing to Thailand can take a while. Other than that very satisfying trips for the price

Bus host had multiple friends jumping in and off bus and was very anti social

Sleeper bus is great experience to us. There's pillow and blanket provided. The transport is smooth and safe even it was late at night. They act promptly when some passengers have issues or concerns. We arrived early from ETA. Thanks Giant Ibis!

To help the environment, 12goasia should accept e-tickets or m-tickets and reduce the use of paper and pdf prints. Thank you!

Phnom Penh to Siem Reap - Plenty of room on the bus, comfortable, air-conditioned, got to Siem Reap in good time, smooth ride with a good driver and water and snacks provided. Two stops en route at good rest stops with good facilities and clean toilets. Wifi worked well. No complaints. Steve Australia

The journey was comfortable and there were no big surprises. On this occasion the staff member's English was a bit difficult to understand. Unfortunately the bus station in Siem Reap is way out of town, so even if you prefer to walk, you'll probably need a Tuk Tuk.

We travelled from Saigon to Phnom Penh to Siem Reap to Bangkok. Saigon to Phnom Penh was good. The personnel were helpful and the bus and WiFi run well. Only the bathroom in Saigon was bad and the office workers were not friendly. The trip to Siem Reap from Phnom Penh was a nightmare. The bus broke down and we had to wait for another bus. The air conditioning was not working well. It was hot inside bus. The WiFi was not working at all and the conductress had a bad attitude. She was acting like a child having tantrums. We could not understand her English either. Your drivers were good and polite. Our trip to Bangkok from Siem Reap seems to be going smoothly so far.

Bus was comfortable with lots of leg room. Bottled water, refreshing wipe and nice pastry snack were provided. Two toilet stops including one for lunch and an English speaking bus attendant. The only real problems were lack of WiFi on the bus and that the first bus we were on broke down. The company did, however, get a new bus to us in 30 minutes. The buses they used were much older than one I’d travelled on with the same company previously.
