As with other bus stations in Thailand, different companies operate their own ticket counters. You need to find the correct ticket counter for the service you want to take. Quite often several different companies operate services to the same destination which means that if you are sold a ticket it won’t necessarily be a ticket for the next available departure, or the cheapest service, or the most comfortable service. Before you buy a ticket it pays to check what services are being offered at other ticket counters.
