Bangkok to Chumphon Destination Reviews

The bus smells really bad
Bus VIP, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Nov 8, 2023
Phones cannot be charged. One aisle has call button ( which is of no use ! ) and order side does not ! Seats are loose or the adjustment does not work effectively. Trains on the whole is too outdated but no complains on service with a smile ! Nice staff !

Driver was highly skilled and very friendly.
taxi Luxury VIP Van 9pax, Glassflower (Glassflower), Aug 20, 2023
Pro: -Bus was comfortable, cheap and there were even some snacks and water. Cons: -The whole bus smelled like pee once the toilet door was opened. -Unfortunately we stopped multiple times an hour without any obvious reason which led to a total drive time 8 instead of 6,5 hours.
Bus Express, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Aug 10, 2023
Comfortable buses, strong AC but not too cold as long as the sun is out. Delayed arrival, due to a large part of dropping off passengers at various points of the journey.

We had a great experience using this service! The driver was super friendly and picked us up on time. The car was bigger than expected and the 12go Asia agent was helpful to change our time last minute to accommodate changes in our itenary.
taxi Comfort 3pax, MCC VAN (เอ็มซีซี แวน), Jun 4, 2023
Extra charge because the train was delayed. Felt like a scam
Train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railway (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), May 28, 2023
What a great service. Easy booking and great bus ride to Chumphon. It was easy to navigate the bus terminal and found the ticket booth quickly. The lady was kind and helpful at ticket booth, the driver was great and so was the guy loading. We got a snack, juice and water as soon as we got going and we stopped after about 3 hrs where we got a lunch which is included in the price. The ride was comfortable and pleasant. It was a longer ride than expected, 8.5 as opposed to 6.5 but we really enjoyed it and appreciated the friendly service. Thank so much!
