Chiang Mai to Nong Khai Destination Reviews

Very good. Seats upstairs are the best. You get a drink, snacks and a blanket. Left on time and arrived on time. The seats recline a lot so you can sleep very well.

Bus suspension was pretty shot so difficult to sleep. Driver was safe though
Bus VIP 24, Orsuksa Tour, Jul 2, 2023
We were provided with snacks and a small bottle of water. The seats reclined a lot which made it easier to sleep. It would have been better if the footrests came up a little further to help with sleeping.
