Most buses companies have recently bought brand new Scania buses from Europe. Some premium bus companies now include a snack, drink and even bus hostess during the bus trip.
Even though Buses are reliable (on time) but we strongly recommend that you should not try to catch a plane the same day that your bus is “supposed” to arrive.
Even if most important roads had been improved, roads between remote cities are usually bad. If you are traveling away from the main cities, you will probably get one of the old bus along with bad road. Try to get update information before you go.
