There's ample leg room for everybody. The cabin is well air conditioned, and while there's a bathroom on board this bus does end up making rest stops.
There are 3 operators that run from Suratthani to Don Sak. If you decide to take a Minivan, you can take the Standard option.
Travel of any kind can be stressful, but such stresses can be reduced if you book a private car. This way you and your squad can travel in complete peace and quiet, being driven around by an experienced driver. This journey may seem pricey but the cost includes three people, as does the cabin. The journey is also really short.
