Easy to book online. Spacious comfortable seats. Easy to get to the bus station to board the bus. However the journey was not so pleasant due to old bus. Felt the whole suspension of bus is gone.

Easy to book and pay for the transport. Would have been cheaper if I'd gone myself but then you have to hang around the bus station if the bus is full.

Bus VIP, GreenBus, Nov 27, 2019
This was really good value. The bus is old, but you have a very large comfy seat with lots of leg room. The water/snack included was a bonus too. It was very easy to board, they take your bag and give a ticket which matches one attached to the bag. The staff were friendly and efficient- no complaints, very good for the (VIP) price.

Seat number sorting was miserable, at least 3 couples had separate seats when there was others available in the bus (might be fine for short distance but not cool in that case); equipment wasn’t working : no individual light, seats hard to set,... no wifi or functioning plugs And finally a supposedly 3:30hrs journey in which we had nothing else to do but sleep arrived later than expected

Bus VIP, GreenBus, Nov 23, 2019
We booked a VIP express trip. There were 2 buses departing for Chiang Rai, the standard bus was much newer & cleaner with leather seats. Our 'VIP' bus was disgraceful. The onyl good thing was the size of the seat. The bus was falling apart. The door was cracked & there was cardboard taped in areas to hide/repair damage. The seats were dirty and broken. We felt like we needed a shower when we got off! Very uncomfortable journey. This was the same case on the return journey. It is disgraceful that people pay extra for VIP express & end up in a run down & dirty bus. The regular buses were much more up to standard which does not make sense. Very disappointing and would not use Green Bus again.

pleasent temperature, not to cold not to hot. The Seat was a little tilted maybe worn-out. So Seating comfort could have been better. Timing of start and arrival was good.

Bus left on time, arrived on time. It was a comfortable ride. Only issue was my seat was broken and wouldn’t stay straight up (it would go into the recline). Not a problem for me, but a huge inconvenience for the person behind me!

Straight forward experience on VIP bus from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai. Easy booking, easily located at bus station, left a little late but nothing major, clean and comfortable bus. The definition of VIP I think is open to interpretation and even with Green Bus there are newer and older buses used in this class that offer a different experience. For the small amount extra Baht, the larger seats, extra leg room and guaranteed toilet was well worth it.

Good, comfortable trip. Left the rating at 4 only because their was no toilet on the bus.
