"Bus Bangkok to KL" Long Distance Buses Tip by bulldogtwo

Long Distance Buses, Bangkok: 20 reviews and 37 photos

Not sure why you need to take a bus, but it's a about a 25 hour run, that is Bangkok, Hat Yai to Butterworth, so it's not even all the way to KL, assuming that is your final destination. www.thailandday.com
Departs Bangkok at 1530 daily and arrives in Butterworth at 1530. That's a long trip, I don't care how comfortable the bus is, but that's me. That is also 1900 Baht according to this web site.
Why not take a train?? Faster and maybe even cheaper. Same web site. Bangkok to Butterworth with as 2nd class sleeper for about 1400baht or BKK to Pedang Besar ro about 1900 baht, both take about 17 hours, faster and arguably more comfortable with an AC sleeper.
For both of these it does not get you all the way to KL but I know you can get from Butterworth to KL via train or bus easily.

For probably twice that much you could fly all the way in less than 2 hours.

Good luck
