"Get a real bus" Thailand Transportation Tip by hvrd

Thailand Transportation: 410 reviews and 309 photos

Bussing around Thailand is cheap but not necessarily a good experience. Toilets are frequently broken/dirty, and always smelly. AC is not a given and fans do not always work. Seats might not be reclining and, believe me; a 12hour trip might seem like a really slow trip trough Hell.

Spend a few extra and make sure you get a comfy bus. And remember to book in advance! A couple of years ago I HAD to go from Krabi to Bankok over night and all the planes and VIP busses were fully booked. I really contemplated jumping out the window after sitting in a 37centigrade, old diapers and vomit reeking cabin for 8 hours with 4 more hours to go.
