It worked as advertised,it's a very convenient way to get a ticket and Green Bus,at least in Chiang Mai,no longer requires a printout, just present your eticket on your phone.

Challenging road conditions but driver handled it well. Felt safe and assured. Quite nice scenery once into rural parts and we got chance to see traditional rice paddies. They still exist! Booking process was simple. Bus was comfortable and overall great value.

De VIP greenline bus heeft ons van Chiang Mai naar Chiang Rai gebracht in 3hr 30min. De weg was hobbelig gezien men bezig is met de aanleg van de autosnelweg.

It was a comfortable drive. We felt pity for the driver, because you send him a wrong departuretime. So he had to wait for 2 hours for us.

Quick 3 hour ride from CM to CR. Comfortable ride and temperature setting. Speed was according to the traffic flow. Driver had to drop off a tour group in advance at terminal 2, and did not understand what he meant , next stop, next stop until later. Like booking through 12Go with assigned seat.

Good and easy to use website for booking the trip. I'd give it a 5 star but there was a bit of an inconvenience of finding where to print the ticket voucher. Apart from that everything was great!

Old bus but very nice and comfortable, with reclining seats and very spacious. Been offered bottle of water and a little roll cake. Only giving 4 stars because toilet facilities were very bad. A very small toilet and very bumpy roads, imagine what that means...that was an experience :( Unfortunately crew dont speak English, so all announcements made in Thai.

It was a good & pleasantly surprised trip. Nice touch with a bottle of water on each seat. Didn’t expect that. Forget the 20kg hold limit per case. They don’t check. Overall very good. Was punctual & very economic mode of transportation. Thank you. Brit Guyz
