I had read all sorts of horror stories about this route, drivers and buses but our driver was super careful and polite. I didn’t feel sick despite usually doing so on twisty roads. I recommend travelling with this company and will do so again on the way back!

Driver excellent. I booked on trip online over 2 weeks in advance to get a seat near front. I was given the very back corner and told by office they could not change seat as it was booked online. 3 different segments booked at this time for 3 different days/destinations and all seats very back corner. No seat changes again as online booked!

The van is decent but far from spacious. It is a quite crowded trip (people and some bags in a limited space) but quite good value for money. Do not expect any luxuries.

Zeer goede prijs/ kwaliteit verhouding. Probeer wel een stoel vooraan te reserveren. Wij zaten op de achterbank maar daar heb je weinig beenruimte.

Make sure you get there half an hour before departure to find the minivan stop.Worth a better explanation where the station is, end of Terminal 2 instead of the big Terminal 1 where the taxi usually drops you. Book earlyish hour tickets as there are not as many people in the bus. BE AWARE, the ride is pretty damn curvy and our driver was driving quite fast even in dangerous turns, which made me pray quite a lot. Very easy to get motion sick on this road, so be prepared however you can.

The location of the bus was hard to find. Thai people know the location at Bus terminal 2 it seems. So please specify more clearly. My driver was very stern and impatient. I would appreciate a little more customer service orientation. Thank you

Easy booking and just a 2,5 to 3 hours drive to Pai from Chiang Mai. We tried to change seats, because we were at the back of the bus, but the bus was full. Anyway the roads were nice and it was a good driver, so no problem at all.

The ride was very swift, which meant my partner was sick and vomiting when we stopped for a break.

Was worried as had heard horror stories but was absolutely fine. Motion sickness tablets taken before worked a treat. Do take them as some people got sick because of all the bends. You stop half way for food and toilet break. Got there on time. Good experience.

We had purchased tickets online and had them but we were directed to the ticket counter anyways. Which made us almost miss our bus. The driver was excellent however and our trip to Pai was very safe and quick!
