Bus Minivan, Prem Pracha (เปรมประชาขนส่ง), Sep 4, 2020
Las vans muy cómodas y con las nuevas reglas de distanciamiento social por covid 19 uno tiene mas espacio para viajar pues la silla de al lado siempre estara vacía. El conductor hace una parada para usar baño o comer. Si el tiquete de salida de pai se compra en la estación son 50bth menos.

Yes we had a lovely time!

Bus Minivan, Prem Pracha (เปรมประชาขนส่ง), Feb 29, 2020
Met busje reizen verliep prima, echter de bus zat te vol (de achterste plaatsen 5 zijn bagageplaatsen en geen plaatsen die je kunt verkopen. Je zit vast tussen de bagage en je moet er niet aan denken hoe je eruit moet als er iets gebeurd hoe je eruit moet. Als je plaatsen online koopt, dan krijg je automatisch de slechtste plaatsen (nummers rij 5) toegekend. Beter om ze ter plaatste te kopen.

Bus Minivan, Prem Pracha (เปรมประชาขนส่ง), Feb 10, 2020
Rough ride. It's most nauseating in the back seats, especially when the AirCon is weak, which it was on our trip.
KP
Bus Minivan, Prem Pracha (เปรมประชาขนส่ง), Feb 8, 2020
The driver thought he was Lewis Hamilton, whizzing around the steep corners so fast! Most of the bags was knocking around people's feet and few people felt sick due to the rough ride, got to Pai earlier than expected lol

Bus Minivan, Prem Pracha (เปรมประชาขนส่ง), Feb 1, 2020
Road is quite bendy, not too terrible but would take some anti-sickness tablets before if prone to motion sickness. Stopped halfway for a 10 minute comfort break. Bus a little cramped and be aware you may not be sat together even if on the same booking. Overall a good trip.

SM
Bus Minivan, Prem Pracha (เปรมประชาขนส่ง), Jan 27, 2020
Overall trip was fine. Had a small break in between if people needed toilet or coffee. The driver was fast and efficient but needs to stop burning the clutch out going up and down the hills. You could smell it after awhile in the van.
