++++++++++++++Hello everyone, I have missed the bus fanning sessions especially Mumbai - Mangalore buses. I had gone to Thailand for my honeymoon. We traveled from Bangkok to Krabi and then Krabi - Phuket and Krabi - Bangkok via bus as planes were not convenient. I have shared some of the pics of the buses we traveled in.
Bangkok bus stand our BKK-Krabi bus below being docked with refreshments and luggage. There are private as well as govt operated buses. Mostly double deckers and you can choose from a line of bus operators as per your price. The bus had a toilet and TV's. We were suprised when offered with snacks and other refreshments along with the usual blanket and water bottle. Really nice service. But then again depends on operator to operator. These buses have a digital clock and digital speedometer on the upper deck as well just FYI.

The dinner Halt. As you can see the colourful buses. Unfortunately couldn't click good pictures as in a foreign country so don't know how much time I have and had to order food where I don't understand the food.

Our last bus Phuket- Bangkok. Although similar to our first bus, it didn't provide the same service as the first one. Like i said operator to operator.

I hope to see more Mumbai Mangalore bus reviews. Thanks a lot
Thank you for sharing your experience of Bus travel in South East Asian Countries. You should have created a separate thread so that people could have added their inputs.
Especially when you look at the buses plying Singapore - KL; I feel the Indian buses have to still mature further and there is huge scope to do so.
Simple bus layout in India we are gaga be in Scania or Volvo!
