Some buses are quite new with comfortable seats and free WIFI. Some are worn out. Be sure to take a fleece, blanket, or winter clothing as the air conditioning is too strong. For example, a bottle of water can be served. Also, it’s good to take some drinks, lunch, snacks, and sweets. You will have a break time for breakfast for the midnight bus. Many bus drivers drive rough and fast but you will get used to it soon.
