We payed online and the bus driver still asked us to pay in the bus. We try to explain in English that we all ready payed and show the reservation but he didn’t understand us. There was a women in the bus that spoke English a little bit so she was translating for us that was really nice. At the end he toke pictures from the reservation and my payments and walked away.

Very comfortable ride! They provide water, juice, and cookies and even a blanket. The trip was long and overnight but I was able to sleep. You are dropped off at Udon Thani Central Arcade (shopping mall). Know which bus terminal you have to leave from (if connecting). You can walk to terminal 1 but may have to tuk-tuk to the others.

They told us that the bus was going to Bangkok and left us miles out of where all the other coaches drop off people travelling to Bangkok and so we had to pay more money ????

It was an OK bus ride with comfortable seats, but the toilet was gross and the bus driver drove like a maniac, almost pushing people off the road when he didn't get to pass quick enough for his liking. The stops were unclear when you were able to get off to stretch your legs or not, and we arrived 2.5h earlier than expected (probably because of the reckless driving). The first two hours from Chiang Mai were really bumpy, but from then on the road got smoother and you could fit in some sleep if you weren't too scared about the bus taking sharp turns at fast speed.

It was a much better than expected trip in the bus. My only disappointment was when I went to the ticket booth no one was there for quiet some time. But overall was a great experience.

The bus was fine. The station OK. The problem is with 12go, I was taken a train pass and they don't get it so we change for bus. They can help to book right so we now know that it was a very better way to do the travel.

Free complementary items such as bottled water, juice cartons, packets of biscuits and blankets were provided. I recommend you take something to use as a pillow as the neck support on the seats is not the best. Ride was a little bumpy at times but that couldn't be helped. Leg room was a little lacking even though I am short. Overall was a good experience.

Bus left on time and arrived earlier than expected which was fantastic. Adequate size seat with lots of leg-room, but the seats are old and quite worn. Using the toilet is an interesting experience, as there is no space to stand in front of the toilet. One of the negatives is that the overhead light (for each seat) does not work. The driver can turn it on if asked, but it doesn't stay on?

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.
