In general it was very comfortable. Sometimes he was driving too fast in curves. I didn’t have the feeling that safety was always more important than arriving in time

The driver drove really nice, not as careless as other ones. We did not experience any road sickness but we only had one stop during the 4 hour trip, maybe 2 stops would be better

The bus was very small. You had very little leg room. We booked the bus together and didn’t get seated together.

The ride to PAi wasn't that terrible as expected based on all the stories on the web. The driver took it really easy, but that was ok and made probably made the ride less harsh. I thougt it was strange that we made the booking 4 days beforehand and still were put in the back seats.

Our driver’s driving skills were excellent! I don't recommend eating during the stop to avoid trouble. "4" because it wasn’t allowed to choose a place at the bus station (I bought tickets to the other side, the seller gave me a choice).

Beautiful ride, but it can definitely be hard for those who get car sick. Checking in was also a bit confusing at first because there isn’t a system in place for it and the language barrier can get in the way a bit. However, all in all it was a nice and stress free trip

Good car, clean with comfortable seats. Its a long trip but being worth it when you arive in Pai. Friendly driver, drives carefully but has to get his foot on the gas to take the steepy hills en curves.

Please leave information for the toerist that if they book online, they have to go to the check in at the station. After this they get busnumber en platform number to go.

Trip was overall really good. Driver was safe and steady, beautiful scenery. Only downside was the aircon could have been a bit higher, however it wasn’t unbearably stuffy. Overall a good experience :)

Good and fast ride. The road to Pai is like a snake, so the driver really needs make a big effort to right smoothly. You can't do this ride without being a bit overwelmd by the winding road and the steep climbs the van has to take. He even needed to disable the airco to have get some extra PK to make the climb up. He always turned it back on. Sit in the middle or the front for a breeze and stabilty.

Mini van is very clean, AC worked, amount of time in Van was accurate (3 hours and a bit), and the drop off is in the centre of Pai which makes it very easy to get to your accommodation. Negatives - driver was rude, spoke no English, we had to turn to around 10 minutes in to go back and pick up travellers that arrived at ride time (arrive the 30 minutes early you need it to figure out where to go, it’s a little confusing). Overall - in the van a good experience, leading up to it, not great. Be prepared to figure it out.
