About 2 weeks bought a 900 baht one way bus ticket. Staff at Morchit Bus station assured me the bus has a toilet.
Depart about 8:30 AM.
Toilet door is shoulder height. Doorknob is nearly falling off.
Toilet is a midget cubicle that is disgustingly dirty with layers of caked on filth everywhere.
Good news it is non functional and seems its been that way for years.
I wish there were a way to post the pics of it.
Driver and male on bus staff say its "broken"
Seats are reasonable and recline and yes there are functional seat belts.
Quite a few cockroaches seen on the floor as they are likely scared of the toilet.
Bus makes several toilet stops; reasonable
I sleep much of way.
Male bus staff tries to sell passengers whet he claims is a VIP Entry card to Cambodia. 200 baht or 6USD.
This is the standard entry card given free of charge at Cambodian immigration.
None of the approx 10 passengers (all foreigners) buys the scam VIP card.
The male staff seems unhappy.
Final toilet stop 6 km from border I personally tell this on bus employee "1 minute" and he sees me enter toilet.
I leave toilet and bus has left without me. Later other passengers tell e this is when they were given fried rice lunches without anything to drink, not even water.
I must hire taxi to get to the border.
At border Thai immigration I see the guy and ask him why he let the bus leave without me. No answer. I took pics of him also.
I phone the Nattakan Bus Company tel number on my neck tag and tell them in Thai what happened. The man says sorry but not a word about my taxi after his bus deserted me.
I ask him and he says they will reimburse me. They never do.
Other passengers tell me the bus abandoned another passenger before at a prior stop.
Fellow passengers agree the on bus staff were not happy nobody bought their scam 200 baht VIP Cards and this is why he allowed the bus to abandon passengers.
We feel staff are not there to help but to scam and we become the enemies for not allowing to be scammed.
On the Cambodia side the so called express bus turns into what feels like a 3rd class bus from India. Packed, standing room only and many standing.
About 13 hours to get to Phnom Penh.
