Bangkok to Kanchanaburi Destination Reviews

Left on time, arrived on time.
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Dec 8, 2023
Left 40 minutes earlier, took only 2 hours, nothing to complain.
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Dec 7, 2023
Bus booked for 10am but I'm arrived in advance around 8:40am so the office ticket girl put me on the bus for 9am (understood when she gaves me the ticket) and just time to take a coffee, when I went at gate, all people were already in bus so we left around 8:50am so good. All was ok and on time.
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Dec 5, 2023
There was not enough storage for our luggage which made the trip uncomfortable
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Nov 30, 2023
Check in is just outside the actually station building so can take a bit of time to find. Otherwise all
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Nov 29, 2023
The terminal was hard to find, even people there at the old bus terminal did not know. We started earlier which was OK, because the bus was full. The luggage had to be stuck in the aisle which wasn't comfortable.
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Nov 22, 2023
Arrived for a 1200 departure at 1045 and we were asked if we would like the 1100 departure. Accepted happily.
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Nov 12, 2023
Booking confirmation said 1:50h, but the ride took almost 3h. Had to book another, earlier ride back to Bangkok because we wouldn't be able to catch our connecting flight, if the travel back would be equally longer than advertised.
Bus Express, GO Family, Nov 7, 2023
I arrived at the station at 7.15 so that I could get my ticket and grab some breakfast afterwards to be shure that I would have found it, since some of the reviews noted it was not easy to find. I had no difficulties finding the counter, but when I showed her my online ticket she printed me one and said, the schedule changed the bus leaves at 7.20! There went my breakfast... I had no idea what would have happend if I arrived later, so be very careful with these bookings and go well in time just to be shure!
Bus Intercity, Kanchanaburi Express, Oct 26, 2023
Booked to pick us up at 11 but left at 11.30 but still got there on time :) Tara travel was a little hard to find as maps says it’s over the bridge on the right side but it’s the left of the road. Had to swap buses but got aircon and a comfy seat. Really lovely people

Vans are a great alternative - or, in many cases - your only option - if you need to travel overland within one and the same province or neighbouring provinces or states. Vans ply the roads between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
