The Departure time can be every hour so that When we arrive in Chiangmai airport , we can take taxi direct to bus terminal. no need to wait at bus station for a few hour.

This was my third bus ride in Thailand. It was also my first time taking the „Green Bus“ (unfortunately i forget the names of the other busses). First of all the bus had a 30min delay. Second, we didn’t get any water or snacks, which was weird, because all of the other busses did that. I also didn’t have that much space compared to the other busses and i didn’t get a blanket, which would be nice considering the fact that it can get cold like a fridge inside these busses. All in all it was okay, but i had better experiences.

Good service. Good driver and helper. But please repair the headrests. These busses are getting a little older now, so they need some attention to the minor repairs.
