It's very nice and accommodating in the check in area. We are a bit worried because our electronic ticket says: we need to print the ticket before boarding and we didn't able to do so. It turned out good and everything alright as long as we ready the ticket itinerary on our mobile phone upon check in. No long lines of que and friendly staff.

Good. Clean. Staff are strict and concerned with how many bags and weight. If not for that than I would have given them five stars.

We took the Express Bus asuming that it will be a premium travel option. Im fact this is not the case. Express doesn't mean you will drive from A to B in a fast way. The Bus stops every 30 minutes to pick someone up along the way or to collect some strange parcel from the street. This leads to a delay of almost 3 hours! On bookig confirmation time was estimated to be 11h - the trip took us 13,5h! Furthermore you only have two stops where you're allowed to go outside. One after 1h (what doesn't make any Sense) and one after 10 hours. You need to brace yourself because you definitely don't want to use the toilet on the bus. The door lock was broken, cabin was full of crap, no water and very dirty. You're not meant to go on this toilet anyway since all you get on this daytrip is a small bag of coockies and 500ml water. - bring your own food and water - wear long clothing (AC is freazing cold) - bring your own toilet paper Only positive thing is that provide USB power outlets on every seat. If you have any chance to travel an other way - use it!

Overall can’t complain, booked our seats at the front of the bus and had a good amount of space for our legs although width is tighter than in Europe. The bus was cool enough without being freezing and we stopped for a half hour break at services after 8 hours. Bus ended up being 2.5 hours late because although it says direct it does stop at other bus stations where people get on and off and we had an incident where a car pulled out in front of us and the bus hit the wing mirror. Not the drivers fault and at no time did we feel unsafe but 14.5 hours on a bus is a long time.

Well, the ride was okay. It was comfortable but the bus stopped very often and due to which it was late too. If you have no other option to travel then this can be an option.

The bus is fine .only thing is that bus doesnt stop frequently..just once for 10 mins in between 13 hrs ride. Advice to carry some snacks else you can end up starving. The bus driver was professional and the bus was clean :-)

Again couldn't fault the driver and the overall comfort of the bus but the hostess has some problems... She Ripped the blankets from us when we got to northern terminal and awoke everyone abruptly screaming Bangkok, bangkok and told us to get off... Being English in Asia we nearly got off and took her word for it but had a hunch this wasn't our stop so managed to ask a kind girl next to us that rolled her eyes at the hostess and said not to worry about her but this isnt your stop... So after the hostess kept demanding we got off and we told her as best we could that we stop southern terminal we ignored her and the bus driver told us to stay on as he'd remembered when he checked us in and kindly took our luggage where we were going The hostess then began sweeping and made us move our bags and legs while the bus was in transit to southern terminal from northern terminal and poinyed at some rubbish by my feet and put her hand out for me to pass it to her... Whilst I appreciate differences in cultures I think she's a bit of an odd person and others weren't impressed by her otherwise lack of customer service either... Seeing past this, the drive itself and the driver couldn't fault for the price, just more to be desired from the hostess

Bus operators were nice. Ride included USB, water, and cookies. However we arrived nearly 3 hours late and did not go to Southern Terminal as scheduled. Also kids were yelling and running around the back aisle which made it hard to sleep.
