Really good service, clean car, arrived on time
Bus Express, Budsarakham Tour (บุษราคัมทัวร์), Feb 5, 2018
Not easy to find the ticket booth in Mochit terminal. The trip went very well. Nice and comfortable. The bus started 40 minuts later and arrived in Nan about 1 hour later, but I didn't mind it, given the early hour of planned arrival.
