Udon Thani to Bangkok Destination Reviews

Found car and seats with no problems. The Steward was very helpful. The scenery on the way was beautiful. I will use this service again.
Train #76 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railway (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Aug 9, 2022
It was ok. Unfortunately I had seat 24, the window seat right by the door recess and therefore could not stretch out at all. I am quite tall and nine hours of this had me very stiff and sore by journey end. I wasn't sure if I was permitted to but I did think about transferring to third class. There was room to sit down and stretch the kegs there. The windows aren't particularly clean so not great for viewing and photography.

The bus was great. Very comfortable. My experience with 12go wasn't fantastic. I never got a confirmation ticket, and it led to confusion when I tried to check in for my bus, as my receipt provided only minimal information.
Bus VIP, Air Udon (แอร์อุดร), Feb 20, 2020
Comfy, spacious, we slept okay - would give 5 stars but we saw a couple of small cockroaches by our feet and lots of mosquitoes.
Bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour (บุษราคัมทัวร์), Jan 18, 2020
+ Great trip. Clean carriages, efficient staff. - Excessive fees (about 12$) for booking through 12Go. Aircon a bit too cold in train. They don’t shut the light during the night which makes it hard to sleep.
Train #26 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jan 8, 2020
- Food and Drinks provided (not vegetarian friendly) - You get a blanket - it’s still super cold and the air con is way to intense! - the bus was not in a very good condition ( broken seats etc.) but it was okay - staff wasn’t that friendly and it was hard to communicate with them - just before we arrived in Bangkok the bus stopped in the middle of the highway and we were just standing there for like half an hour. No one told us why or what was going on
Bus Express, Air Udon (แอร์อุดร), Dec 12, 2019
Staff is friendly. Refreshment given on the bus. Seat is equipped with massage and tv
