Passenger reviews out of total 2,883 passengers traveled with us on this route

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★☆☆ Sep 24, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
El bus estaba bien, nada especial, no nos dieron snack y las sillas apenas de reclinaban, pero por ser un viaje corto no tuvimos problema. Hubo un par de paradas antes de llegar a chiang mai, incluyendo una para comprar comida. Nosotros nos habiamos confundido con la fecha del ticket y el staff sin problema ni gastos extra nos cambio los tickets para ese mismo dia.

★★★★☆ Sep 6, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
Fairly comfortable journey from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai which actually took 4 hours due to heavy traffic leaving Chiang Mai. Seats could have been a bit wider as designed for Asians rather than fat westerners. Driver drove safely and seat belts available. Complementary water and snack provided. Air con worked well and luggage handled safely.

On time, very few space on seats

★★★★☆ Aug 23, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
The bus was very clean and comfortable, it just run a little late (instead of 3 hours it took 3h 1/2 to get from chiang mai to chiang rai). The biggest issue is that the staff doesn't speak english well so we couldn't ask them any kind of info.
★★★★★ Aug 23, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus)
★★★☆☆ Aug 22, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
It is not an express bus as it stopped several times and there were issues with the engine for which we had to stop 4 times extra.
★★★★★ Aug 21, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
Comfort and precision
★★★★★ Aug 21, 2017 (bus VIP, GreenBus) :

★★★★★ Aug 13, 2017 (bus VIP, GreenBus) :

No toilet in the bus
★★★☆☆ Aug 8, 2017 (bus VIP, GreenBus) :
Unclear signage for English speaking, but good clean bus and reasonable price

★★★★☆ Aug 5, 2017 (bus VIP, GreenBus) :
Very nice and comfortable bus! There was a lot of leg room, they handed out water, biscuits and wipes. The airconditioning was a bit too cold for us and the adjustable headrest isnt made for people taller than 180 cm.

★★★★★ Aug 3, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
It was a pleasant ride. There was a hostess in the bus. She took good care of the passengers. We received water, a cookie and a cleaning tissue during the ride. At the end the hostess asked us which busstop we wanted to stop.
★★★☆☆ Jul 30, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
Toilette very dirty, too much air conditioning
★★★★☆ Jul 22, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
Trip was ok. We arrived around 12pm and asked if we could take a bus 1 hour earlier. One person from Greenbus said "yes it is ok" ... so we went for lunch ... then we asked again around 1pm ... then one person says "no" and another one says "yes" ... finally it was no. Very weird and confusing when different people from your staff are saying different things. In stead they should have told us to change our ticket at the office. So no good service.
★★★★☆ Jul 20, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus)

★★☆☆☆ Jun 18, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
Email with attached file containing tickets arrived too late, 2hrs before departure, when we had paid for the tickets the night before. Despite efforts we were unable to contact company. Consequently we didn't receive email as already in transit to bus station and had no wifi. Therefore also didn't receive the next email telling us of changed departure time to 90 minutes later. Not happy! Ticket price stated 166 baht yet we paid 270 baht each Coach very basic and driver went really fast

Great bus ride thank you very much!
★★★★☆ May 23, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
Correct
★★★☆☆ May 21, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
One problem is that EVERYTHING is announced only in Vietnamese! So, I don't know what they are saying or how long I have to get something at a stop to eat and drink. I also, heard him say Chiang Rai and it was the WRONG one and I, along with a guy from Switzerland, got off and were waiting. I suddenly noticed that no luggage was being moved at all! I started to raise my voice to be heard and, well, he and I were guided back onto the bus for the NEXT STOP! Funny thing is that that first Chiang Rai stop was a REAL bus station and the second one was a vacant lot that was difficult for me to walk on. So, maybe they should have a placard with Thai on one side and then show the ENGLISH on the other in large letters so that all people can read what is being instructed by the porter. Thank you.

Comfortable ride to Chiang Rai, mineral water and bread was provided for each passenger. Unfortunately, bus came to Chiang Mai terminal 20mins late.
★★★★☆ Apr 17, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus)
★★★★☆ Apr 16, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
Comfy and quick. Announcements in English as well as Thai would have been appreciated, or at least a better knowledge of English from the conductor, but everything was very adequate.
★★☆☆☆ Apr 16, 2017 (bus Express, GreenBus) :
I was really disappointed with this company, the staff weren't helpful and none spoke English, all announcements were in Thai. I asked if he bus station was the last stop and the conductor seemed to understand and said yes, we arrived at the last stop which wasn't the station I was meant to get off at, it was late at night and I asked the conductor again for help and he ignored me and got straight back on the bus and left me there. I won't be using this company again.
