While buses leave frequently from Kanchanaburi for the southern bus terminal in Bangkok we could have had problems getting a bus to Bangkok’s northern bus terminal had we not seen the timetables on these boards at the bus station. Even at the ticket booth where we eventually did buy our tickets they kept denying the existence of the bus we wanted.
The problem? They would only sell us the tickets ten minutes before departure and the language barrier meant it was far easier to send us away or point us towards the more frequent mini buses than explain this to us.
Luckily, I had taken these photos so we knew the times and platform and could keep plugging away to get the bus we wanted, rather than give up and accept we had to take an inconvenient detour and add time to an already long journey to the Laos border. Hopefully, these will be helpful to anyone getting else looking to get a bus from Kanchanaburi.
