At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

All went smooth right from the online booking to the actual trip. I was in the lower part of the double decker bus and had a very comfortable seat with lots of leg space. The bus left on time and arrived slightly before the expected arrival time. The road conditions were dry and little traffic. Very good value for the money.

Nice trip, punctual and safe. Water and biscuits and a blanket for the travel. Just be careful: Bus terminal 2 and bus terminal 1 are quite far one from other, so if you arrive from somewhere, allow you 15-20 minutes to go with a taxi (just 100 Baht moreless).

Previous bus dropped us off at an actual bus stop. After having a hard time getting the answer from anyone who worked there, we found out we had to walk to the nearby Central Plaza mall but that was all we were told. Thankfully someone inside the mall told us where to wait for the bus. We left on time but arrived 3 hours early to Chiang Mai, huge inconvenience as it was 6am instead of 9am.

very helpful staff at the station in tak who made sure to let us know our bus was arriving. it was about twenty minutes late departure and arrived an hour late BUT there was construction work going on, it is a long drive late at night, and i appreciated how cautious our driver was going through the mountain passes. comfortable seating... if you can choose your seating, i reccommend top deck row 4 so you have big front window view and extra foot space. the butter cookies were reallt tasty.

The seats were very comfortable and the service of the staff was great. We even got something to drink and some cookies. We knew it was a night bus because of the time, but we didn't know there were so many stops along the way. This made it hard to have a good sleep. There is not a lot of information in englisch wich makes it harder for foreigners to understand how the busroutes go and how many stops etc. a route has.
