Bangkok to Krabi Destination Reviews

Super comfortable seats. Break around 0000 o.clock Good Journey felt super Safe. Comunication could be little be better for information during Journey. Will do it again
Bus Express, Lignite (ลิกไนท์ทัวร์), Dec 7, 2023
The VIP bus was comfortable and we had a lot of room for our legs and even bags. We got a blanket, a snack and water. They asked us in the beginning, where we want to get dropped off, so maybe you can tell them a closer location to your destination and you can get off earlier. We left punctual at 7pm and arrived 12 hours later in Krabi. We felt safe during the trip and we still made sure that our valuables are not in our luggage but in our bags with us. It can get confusing at the terminal in Bangkok because there are many buses and you don't really know, which one you have to take. So we just asked people there and they showed us the right bus. We made one stop at 10.30pm to get food and we didn't get any information in English. But we figured out where to get the dinner that's included in the price and that the break was 20 minutes. The overall experience was good, the sleep we got not so much, but that's part of it :)

the trip was nice but they try to overcharge for a leg of the trip I didn't request for. I bought the ticket to Krabi and after I got to surat thani, for the connection, the lady asked where I would go after Krabi and simply told me to pay her 250 for this final leg of the trip. I didn't request this service, didn't ask how much it was, and even after I said "no", she said "then how do you go?". be careful with scams.

Hard to find check in point and the right bus terminal. Otherwise really nice seats and water and snacks was included!
Bus Express, Lignite (ลิกไนท์ทัวร์), Oct 13, 2023
First of all, lovely trip. Can absolutely recommend. BUT the Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok is the worst for foreigners. We had to ask tons of people because we couldn’t navigate at all. No exact info about the Bus Terminal (there’s two!!) Once we reached the bus, with help ofc, we enjoyed the smoothest, most comfortable bus ride ever. We had a bit of a delay (2hr) but nothing we didn’t expect. Lots of space for our legs (book the seats at the end!) and even a water bottle + a few snacks. Would absolutely do the same over again, with a knowledge of the right bus terminal :P Oh and don’t forget a sweater cause the ac in Asia is crazy cold. You do get a lil blanket tho.
Bus Express, Lignite (ลิกไนท์ทัวร์), Oct 6, 2023
Very easy to find and checkin, the bus was on time. I would recommend to take a hoodie with you as it gets colder during the night. The AC is not possible to turn off - still if you’re prepared its absolutely bearable. We got some snacks and small water bottle. Overall a nice service!
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Jul 31, 2023
Very nice staff, not much space but it was ok, loved the place where we stopped and got free food. But I couldn’t turn off the fan above my head so i got cold.
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Jun 25, 2023
everything went smoothly. The crew was very helpful to me as I do not speak Thai
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Jun 16, 2023
it was convenient. there is a small toilet. the rear seats are comfortable, but the woman who works and helps during the trip was sleeping right behind us, on the floor and her legs touched ours, it was not very comfortable. I also woke up from her alarm clock, which rang for 10 minutes until we woke her up. They gave out a blanket, buns, juice and water. there was a stop at 23:30 with a free dinner on the ticket.
Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), May 6, 2023
If you’re a light sleeper then this is a no go. The chairs are super comfy and spacious but not for sleeping in my opinion.

Things to remember: Note that some of the airlines may have restrictions on checked luggage weight or require paying extra for check-in, choosing seats or transportation of oversized luggage.

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 Krabi, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea.
