Very comfortable and punctual. Nothing to complain about.

La climatisation fuit et ça pleut sur nous toute la nuit.

Everything was fine. Water and snacks were included. Seats were okay, even for tall Europeans.

Definitely the best way to travel. You get snacks, water and juice. The seats recline like beds. Complementary dinner vouchers half way through the journey when you stop. The sad part, no wifi, no headphones for tv and the chargers need usb adapters. Make sure you have one or you will have a flat phone. Great staff

No problems Bus on time, comfortable seats, air conditioning and a bottle of water. Thanks

Very comfortable and smooth ride!

Sombat Tour Company Review

Sombat Tour Review

Last updated on December 11, 2023

Posted on December 11, 2023 April 5, 2023 by Kamolchat Thanaditsayakun

Sombat Tour is a well-known and respected public transport company, operating a fleet of modern buses on routes across Thailand, mostly departing from Bangkok. In the main, they operate three different standards of buses – Supreme, Super and Star with differing levels of luxury across the three, including reclining chairs, massage chairs, and personal TV screens. You could argue that the quality of their buses is good enough to rival those in Western countries, and their plan certainly seems to be to provide a better quality of service in Thailand by giving better comfort levels and facilities onboard their buses. With plenty of other bus companies operating across Thailand, how does Sombat Tour compare in terms of prices, schedules and service? Our Sombat Tour company review will answer those questions and more.

About Sombat Tour

Sombat Tour bus

Sombat Tour is a very well established public transport company with their roots dating back to 1942, when the business was formed under the name Tek Chiang. In 1978 they changed the name to Thepsombat Company Limited and began trading as Sombat Tour, so they have been operating public transport services for close to 80 years now. Initially, they operated a small number of routes but have expanded a lot over the last few decades to cover all regions of Thailand to some extent. In total, they operate 30 different routes, with the majority of these departing from or going to the country’s capital city, Bangkok. Some of the most popular routes include Bangkok to Phuket, Bangkok to Chiang Mai, Bangkok to Hua Hin, Bangkok to Koh Samui, and Bangkok to Surat Thani , while routes departing from other cities include Chiang Mai to Hua Hin, and Chiang Rai to Nakhon Phanom.

Sombat Tour does not operate any cross-border routes, so if you’re looking to travel from Thailand into a neighboring country, you’ll need to consider different bus companies, or catch a flight. Another option is to use Sombat Tour to get you close to the border but cross the border independently before picking up another bus on the other side; a good idea if you were intent on traveling with Sombat Tour as much as possible!

Mo Chit Bus Terminal

Schedules vary on all their routes, with some routes only having one or two buses each way per day, while others have multiple buses to choose from. Bangkok to Chiang Mai is a good example, with around 20 departures from Bangkok each day, departing from Mo Chit and/or Vibhavadi and you can choose which type of bus you want to travel on depending on the schedule. They have Star, Super and Supreme services as well as a VIP 20 bus. These and the Supreme buses are the most expensive as both are VIP types. More on the bus types in a moment. Another good thing to look out for is that Sombat Tour provides special ‘Lady Buses’ as they call them, which are special buses put on just for female passengers on Fridays and Sundays from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. This is great news if you’re a female traveling alone.

Let’s take a closer look at the different buses that Sombat Tour operates. Star buses have the cheapest tickets, so consider these if you’re traveling on a budget. Even these most affordable bus services are very comfortable as they offer seats that recline and have calf support for your legs, and there is a steward onboard serving snacks and beverages. The Super class buses are similar – both have four seats to a row – but these could be double-decker buses and may include massage chairs and personal TV screens in addition to those other comforts. Supreme class buses are the VIP types that you may have traveled on with other bus companies. These have only three seats per row, giving you larger seats and more room around you. All seats have a massage option, and they recline further than those on the more standard buses.

Tickets to travel with Sombat Tour are generally quite comparable to buses operated by other companies, but you will probably find you’re paying a few more baht to travel with Sombat Tour. You could argue that you’re getting a great service for that slight extra cost, as even Sombat Tour’s standard buses include more than some other provider’s luxury buses, so you are getting more for your money anyway.

Sombat Tour Customer Reviews

Sombat Tour VIP 20 seat

The buses operated by Sombat Tour certainly appear to be very well equipped, comfortable and modern, according to their website, but are they really as good as they say they are? Looking at reviews of Sombat Tour that have been left by previous passengers is the best way to judge this.

Many passengers use the travel website, 12Go.asia to book their bus tickets in Thailand. On this travel booking site you can enter the route and dates that you want to travel, then compare all the different transport options. For popular routes like Bangkok to Chiang Mai , they sell tickets for Sombat Tour as well as other bus companies so you can check the prices and bus types, and read reviews, before going ahead to book.

At the time of writing, over 18,700 customers have booked bus tickets with Sombat Tour through 12Go , and there are over 1,200 reviews of the company. The overall rating is 4.4 out of 5 stars, which is very good. 62% of customers gave 5 stars and 25% gave 4 stars, with very low percentages giving 3, 2 or 1 stars, so customers have definitely been impressed and very happy according to these Sombat Tour reviews.

Looking at some of the recent comments on the reviews, passengers have raved over how comfortable and well equipped the buses were, that the staff were friendly and the driving was good, that they arrived on time, and that it was good value for money. There were a few negative points mentioned in recent reviews. Several customers said that there were no announcements in English and therefore they had trouble figuring out what was going on when the bus stopped for a break. Some others mentioned that there was no Wi-Fi, but we could not see any claims that they offer Wi-Fi – perhaps this is a service that could be added in the future. Another comment was about the air conditioning being too cold, but this is a very standard complaint on buses in Thailand and we recommend always bringing a few extra layers.

Should You Travel with Sombat Tour?

Chiang Mai to Bangkok by Bus

With generally very good reviews, it seems as though Sombat Tour is striving to, and reaching their goals, to provide a great service. In countries like Thailand, keeping to schedules to arrive and depart on time is a common problem, but it looks as though Sombat Tour is good at keeping to their scheduled timetables and that they genuinely want to provide a comfortable and affordable service to their passengers. With this in mind, we can’t see any reason not to recommend traveling with Sombat Tour, even if they might be very slightly more expensive than some of their competitors. Remember, you can check prices for Sombat Tour and other bus companies on the travel website, 12Go , and make up your own mind.

I took a luxury overnight bus in Thailand and got 10 hours of business-class service for $30. The US should take notes.

  • I paid $30 to take a luxury Sombat Tour bus from Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
  • Boarding the bus was easy and the service on board reminded me of business class.
  • The seats were large and comfortable and our ticket even came with food. The US should take notes.

Insider Today

Bus transport varies considerably from country to country, from super-slick intra-city buses in Mexico to down-at-heel Greyhounds in the US .

In my extensive journeys around the world as a travel writer, I've enjoyed some superb buses and endured some rust buckets.

On a recent visit to Thailand, I experienced my most deluxe bus ride to date.

My wife and I decided to travel between Bangkok and Chiang Mai by bus rather than plane.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

Aiming to save some money and cut down on flying during a three-week trip to Southeast Asia , my wife and I chose to take a bus between Bangkok and Chiang Mai.

Bangkok is just over 420 miles south of Chiang Mai by road, and I'd heard about a deluxe bus line that made the journey in 10 hours.

Seats cost less than $30 per person for services that — if the photos I saw online were to be believed — were reminiscent of business class on a plane. I booked tickets through the Thai-based travel agency 12Go and prayed the photos were accurate.

We caught the bus at Bangkok's Mo Chit bus terminal, located a few miles northeast of the city center.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

It took us about 40 minutes to get to Mo Chit in a taxi from our city-center hotel through Bangkok's bumper-to-bumper rush-hour traffic. The fare cost about $9.

Although the bus terminal wasn't super modern, it felt clean, safe, and convenient, particularly compared to bus stations I've frequented in North America.

A wide range of food outlets were available, offering everything from doughnuts to Thai-style buffets.

There were no queues for check-in at Mo Chit on a Wednesday evening in February.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

We arrived an hour before our scheduled departure time and picked up our reserved tickets in a matter of minutes.

We had booked a VIP 20 bus run by Thai bus company Sombat Tour.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

Our first impressions of the bus were promising. In addition to having a driver, the bus had an onboard attendant who welcomed us and explained the facilities in English.

Unlike at many budget airlines, our luggage was stored in the hold at no extra cost.

The bus was parked at the bay 15 minutes before departure, which let us to leave promptly at 7:25 p.m.

Sombat Tour's VIP 20 buses have 20 business-class-sized seats.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

The 20 large, business-class-size seats were arranged in 10 rows with an aisle down the middle.

Fewer seats meant more privacy. On VIP 20 buses, you don't have to worry about deciding who gets the armrest or getting stuck in banal conversations with overly friendly passengers in the seat next to you.

Each seat had its own flexible reading light, charging outlets, and TV monitor offering a selection of films and music.

This being Thailand, seats also had a unique built-in massage feature that could caress our muscles electronically all the way to Chiang Mai.

The bus windows were fitted with curtains, and there was an onboard bathroom at the rear.

Several small snacks were brought around by the attendant soon after we departed.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

Snacks included water, orange juice, a muffin, and a bag of crisps.

Blankets were also provided and ultimately proved useful, with the air conditioning trying its hardest to replicate a cool spring day in Vancouver.

It would've been nice to get pillows and headphones or have high-speed WiFi, too.

Built-in seat pods meant we could recline up to 135 degrees without disturbing the person behind us.

An electronic switch allowed us to set whichever seat angle we preferred. Other switches controlled the footrest height and massage intensity.

The bus had good suspension, and the journey was quiet and smooth — all conducive to a good night's rest.

A Thai-style buffet meal was included with our bus ticket.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

At around 11 p.m., three-and-a-half hours into our journey, we stopped at a service station for a bathroom break and a late dinner.

The bus ticket got each of us a complementary meal at a Thai buffet inside. Although the food wasn't gourmet, it was quick, authentic, and remarkably tasty.

We arrived at Chiang Mai's bus terminal excruciatingly early.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

One small downside of the journey is that we arrived in Chiang Mai between 5 a.m. and 6 am.

We got a taxi to our hotel, dumped our bags, and waited for the city's first cafés to open at 7 a.m. After coffee and croissants, we headed off to hit the main sights.

Chiang Mai, with its many beautiful gardens and temples, was well worth the journey.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

Chiang Mai is a historic city of ornate Buddhist temples, floral gardens, and courteous people that's surrounded by a moat and guarded by the remains of an ancient defensive wall.

As a destination, it surpassed our expectations.

Sombat Tour provided us an economical and comfortable way to travel — and it saved us from paying for a night in a hotel.

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

If inter-city coaches of this quality existed in North America — where bus travel is often looked upon as something to be endured rather than enjoyed — public transport would be a lot more popular and widely used.

Plus, my bus ticket cost one-third the price of the cheapest plane ticket from Bangkok to Chiang Mai.

Not only did we arrive in Chiang Mai fresh and relaxed, but we also got to enjoy 10 hours of business-class-standard service for just $30.

How to go from Bangkok to Phuket

sombat tour phuket to bangkok

This guide can help you trade the buzz and energy of the Thai capital for the glinting beaches of the country’s largest and most popular island. With info on the fastest, cheapest, and less-trodden ways to get from Bangkok to Phuket, it’s got the lowdown all travelers will need to go from pumping Khaosan Road to palm-fringed Andaman sands.

With a distance of just over 840 kilometers between the two, you can complete the trip in a single morning if you opt for the air. Alternatively, save your baht for cold Chang beers overlooking the Phuket sunset and choose a longer trip that could cost less.

Bangkok to Phuket by plane

Bangkok to Phuket by plane

Time – 1.5 hours (flight time only) Price – from $35 to $100 each way – book in advance to save more. Comfort – 5/5

There are more flights from Bangkok to Phuket than you can shake your peanut-topped pad Thai at. Linking Thailand’s sprawling capital to the country’s largest island, they are a popular choice with both locals and travelers looking for the fastest route to the sun, sea, and sand.

There are loads of airlines running the connection. Budget carriers like Nok Air and Thai Lion Air typically have the cheapest tickets. Then you’ve got the pricier services on premium names like Bangkok Airways and Thai Smile – those include checked baggage as standard, so could end up a better bargain if you think you’ve packed a few too many Aloha shirts.

Depending on which airport you want to fly from you have different options of airlines.

Be aware that there are two airports in Bangkok. The domestic and regional hub at Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) tends to have the lowest-cost options. However, it’s usually simpler to hop on a connecting flight at big Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) if you’re coming in on a long-haul and want to take a shortcut to the coast. You can easily search and discover all flight routes and book tickets from both Bangkok airports over on 12Go.asia .

The journey time is typically around 1.5 hours from takeoff to landing. You’ll touchdown in Phuket International Airport on the northern end of the island. Check the views out of the window as you land – they offer a glimpse of those fabled white-sand beaches and coconut palms. At arrivals, there’s a pre-paid taxi stand before the exit with set transfer rates to most of Phuket’s best-known resorts and beaches.

Bangkok to Phuket by bus

Sarasin Bridge, the bridge connecting Phuket with the mainland

Time – around 12-15 hours Price – $19-30 depending on your class of travel Comfort – 4/5

Buses leave regularly from big Bangkok for most of the islands in the south, and Phuket is no different. In fact, it’s one of the best-connected of all Thailand’s beach hubs. That means you have the pick of multiple daily departures, on a whole host of different companies, each offering different comfort levels.

Most will go from the Southern Bus Terminal in Sai Tai Mai. A taxi there from the backpacker hub of Khaosan Road costs around 200 THB ($6.30). Alternatively, a few overnight buses leave from the dedicated Sombat Tour station in Chatuchak, which is a little easier to reach from downtown.

There are loads of different providers operating on the route between Bangkok and Phuket. Some of the top rated include Sombat Tour, Transport Co, Bus Express and Phuket Travel, with the latter touting their VIP class tickets that include extra legroom, snacks, TV entertainment, and air conditioning throughout the journey.

Bangkok to Phuket by bus

It’s always a good idea to book your bus tickets from Bangkok to Phuket in advance online. That’s especially true in the high-season months between November and March, when places fill up with travelers ditching the city for the sands. Check out the search tool over on 12Go.asia to compare prices and get your reservation sorted well before departure.

No ferry is necessary to take you across to Phuket. It might be surrounded by crystal-clear seas, but it’s also conveniently connected to the mainland by bridge. Your arrival point is likely to be the Phuket Bus Terminal 2. A whisker north of Phuket Town and close to Rassada Pier for connections to other Andaman favorites, it’s on the western side of the island, some 30 minutes’ transfer from the popular beach resort of Patong. Be aware that taxis in Phuket can cost an arm and a leg, so it might be worth pre-booking a pick-up.

Bangkok to Phuket by train and bus

Bangkok to Phuket by Train

Time – 16+ hours Price – $40-50 Comfort – 3/5

Unfortunately, there’s no railway line going straight from the gold-tipped temples of Bangkok to the gold-tinted beaches of Phuket. However, lovers of locomotives shouldn’t despair, because you can swap the Thai capital for the Thai coast by hopping on the train to Surat Thani and then changing onto a bus to complete the rest of the journey.

It’s by no means the fastest route down south, but it can be one of the most enjoyable.

It’s by no means the fastest route down south, but it can be one of the most enjoyable. Choose the early morning departure from the departure from the newly opened Krung Thep Aphiwat Central Terminal in the capital (a people-watching haven). That way, you’ll chug out through the rice paddies and end the trip gazing at the mist-haloed karst peaks that rise off the Gulf of Thailand. (For a deeper dive into this journey, explore my detailed guide: Bangkok to Phuket by train .)

You could also opt for the overnight train, which takes a little longer but promises to get you to Phuket earlier in the day, perhaps even with time to spare for a dip in the Andaman Sea before evening.

Train at Railway Station Surat Thani

The link from Surat Thani to Phuket takes around five hours. You can book that with several bus or minibus operators, most of which leave from Surat Thani town – a tuk-tuk connection from the train station might be necessary. Expect to pay in the region of $11.50 for that onward ticket.

Getting reservations on Thai trains can be tricky if you’re not from the Land of Smiles. That’s where booking services like 12Go come in. They can take care of all the admin and you’ll just collect your passes right outside the station when you arrive.

Bangkok to Phuket by taxi (private transfer)

Bangkok to Phuket by taxi (private transfer)

Time – 12 hours Price – $390 Comfort – 5/5

If you’re looking to hop to the palm-shaded sands of Phuket from Bangkok in real style, then consider a private taxi transfer. They are never going to be the cheapest form of transport, but do guarantee comfort and simplicity. You’ll get a pickup anywhere in the city you wish, and a drop-off anywhere in Phuket you want. That means door-to-door travel; from one chic hotel to the next.

What’s more, private transfers are typically in deluxe cars with leather upholstered seats, air conditioning, and refreshments provided. The total price is also quoted per vehicle, so this could be the choice for you if you’re traveling as part of a larger group or as a family.

There are oodles of ways to go from Bangkok to Phuket. Whether you whiz to the Andaman coast by air, bus or rail, you can look forward to enjoying Thailand’s biggest island and its wealth of stunning sands and sky-blue seas.

Bangkok to Phuket FAQ

Because there are so many budget airlines running the popular route from Bangkok to Phuket, you might find that flying is actually the cheapest way to get to the island. However, you’ll need to factor in the extra cost of taxis both sides, and add-on baggage if it’s needed. Those could push things just a little higher and make VIP coaches the best-priced route of all. You can easily compare the cost of both options over on 12Go.asia’s booking platform.

Flying – of course! There’s no bus or train that could hope to match the 1.5 hours it takes to jet off from Bangkok and land down in Phuket. It’s important to check what airport your chosen flight is leaving from in the capital. It will either be the smaller Don Mueang International Airport on the north side of the city, or huge Suvarnabhumi Airport to the west. Tickets from both can be booked online via 12Go.asia , where you can also compare and contrast departures at different times throughout the day.

There’s no direct train link between Bangkok and Phuket. However, if you really want to experience the joys of Thai rail, with karst mountains and wild jungles whizzing past your window, it is possible to travel on a combined train and bus link via the city of Surat Thani.

That all depends on what mode of transport you go for. Flights take just 1.5 hours, which means a total travel time of around 4 hours from door to door when you factor in waits in the departure lounge and a transfer after arriving. Buses and trains, meanwhile, can be 12-16 hours, and often go overnight.

Phuket is a wonderworld of glistening beaches and azure seas, all punctuated by bumping party strips in Patong and colorful market towns. You’re going to want to set aside a least three or four days to enjoy the chilled-out vibe of the coast and the beer-fueled hedonism before catching a ferry to bucket-list islands like the Phi Phis. However, it’s also possible to spend whole vacations in Phuket, what with deluxe villas and gorgeous resort hotels aplenty in these parts.

How to get from Bangkok to Phuket by Bus

It is best to reserve your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Check our list of bus companies available for online booking offering Bangkok to Phuket tickets.

Another important factor that may affect travel time is the type of bus. Premium or VIP buses are usually faster as they use motorways and call to fewer bus stations (if any) en route. Buses normally make short 10-30-minute breaks after a few hours of continuous travel to allow passengers use bathrooms, stock up on munchies and let bus attendants and the driver have rest.

Some premium buses have onboard toilets and the second driver. Nevertheless, usually they still make en route stops for a quick lunch or fuel refill.
