Bangkok to Chiang Mai Destination Reviews

While this is listed as a hotel transfer, there were no issues with us booking this from Bangkok bus station to Chiang Mai bus station. I booked this transfer to get from Bangkok Mochit bus terminal to Chiang Mai bus terminal after missing the overnight bus I'd booked. I made my order at 10pm and by 10:30pm I was text on whatsapp by the company with a picture of the vehicle (a SUV, actually, which was a pleasant surprise) very professional driver arrived in a clean and comfortable SUV and drove us the 10 hours to Chang Mai, stopping at rest stations every 2hrs where we could access toilets and 7-11s. All in all it was excellent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a taxi the long distance from BK to Chiang Mai. Firstplan Transport are 10/10.

While our first booking with another operator, which was already paid for, was cancelled by 12go, everything was quickly and easily solved. The trip from Bangkok to Chiang Mai itself was smooth. The 9pax minivan was spacious and clean. The driver did an excellent job. We were happy to book our return trip again with 12go and the same operator, BangkokTaxi24.

The whole trip was excellent. They were on time, straight away made me feel comfortable, telling me that we could stop any time for toilet breaks or food. They updated me on the expected time and in general were just lovely people. Safe driving and a nice ride. Would 100% recommend.
