5 years ago the life of tourists and backpackers became easier when online booking found its way to Thailand. Until then it was an exciting adventure to walk into one of the huge bus terminals in the Big Mango, find the right counter and get a ticket to the right destination on the correct date from a person that did not understand a single word in English. Or any other language than Thai.
Nowadays you can select from over 800 operators connecting all major places in Thailand and the whole region. Prices are usually the same a person would pay at the counter. Only when manual handling is required to secure the tickets in advance, a reasonable fee is added, which brings the convenience to book in 10 different languages and see the prices in 29 different currencies.
The company that makes this possible is 12Go.Asia and the latest news is that now you can book transportation in Thailand under their own brand name. The signature routes are all operated by operators with a proven record of safety, reliability and standard. One example for this new service is the exclusive VIP van from Glassflower which brings customers conveniently from Bangkok’s Makkasan Airport Rail Link terminal to three popular destinations in Pattaya or to the Market Village in Hua Hin.
A similar service is available to Ayutthaya and Kanchanaburi. Looking at the speed the online booking services have evolved we can expect that within a few month most of the country will be covered with a trustworthy network of reliable transportation companies.
You still can go to the overheated bus terminal, but the paperless booking system allows you to easily select your trip weeks in advance from your sofa at home.
