I honestly thought we were going to die. I know the trip has lots of turns in it, since it’s a famous loop but our driver forgot that he was in a van not a race car! We almost rear ended about 10 people and he would accelerate and pass someone going into the turn and then slam on the brakes to make the turn successfully. The body roll was insane the entire trip and I’m thankful it’s over

Amazed that it actually worked! Looks like I snagged the last remining seat on the 1500P hrs minivan, and would have beeen screwed bigly on my meeting obligations here in Mae Sariang if I wasn't able to access your service.

The busdriver didn’t speak any English, while one of us gets really car sick and needed to sit in front. At the online booking we could’t choose our own seat so we hoped to change at the station. The bus driver was very rude and not helpfull at all. He didn’t adjust his drivingskills, it was a very bumpy ride. Thank god for the pretty view and a lovely Thai girl who helped translate and gave her seat!
