Passenger reviews out of total 9,371 passengers who 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 while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Booking the bus Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai was easy. The bus itself was fine. The toilet door on the bus was broken and would not shut so creaked the entire 3.5 hours. As the door wouldn't close the stench of urine was strong and as we were near the back had to cover our noses to block the smell. The staff on board did spray the toilet once which gave relief for 15 minutes or so but the smell was soon back, it made the trip uncomfortable. As there are two terminals in Chiang Rai which are a short distance apart make sure you get off at the right one as if you want the downtown/city stop you have to get off and change with your luggage.

We booked the bus because we were told by locals that they were really nice. Much to our disappointment, the bus was filthy and old. However, the driver was very prudent and had a good speed. We had bought tickets to go to Chiang Rai Terminal 1. Being our first time iin Thailand, we would have appreciated that the driver’s assistant (a lady) would have been more clear when they first stopped at another terminal in CR. I asked if this was our stop and she nodded, so we got off the bus and took out our luggage. The personnel on the ground and the assistant started laughing instead of helping out! Finally, I asked again and she said “next”, so we had to get back our luggage in the smelly bus... if u have the choice, get a personal driver or rent a car.

I booked a bus with toilet and on bard services for 129 baht on the site, plus 5 baht service for booking, but price on receipt and voucher showed erroneously as 229 baht instead of 134 baht. NOT HAPPY. The bus ticket agent at the terminal told me I had been overcharged and suggested I contact 12 go Asia for a refund.The bus had NO toilet and I am diabetic and need one every hour. We did stop once after 90 minutes, and I managed to make the rest of the 2 hours to Chiang Rai, where the terminal is new and has no toilet. We left at 1730 and arrived at 2115 ahead of time despite massive roadworks. Seats were uncomfortable. The highway has roadside bsns all the way, though about 4 minutes out of Chiang Mai there are some rural typical Thai villages and rice paddies.

It’s always a joy to ride in a bus through Thai county’s side. It was a mountainous and sometimes bumpy ride, due to bad roads. But we got to Chiang Rai save. Journey time was just over three hours non stop. VIP bus was nice and spacious. Aircon not as cold as I thought it would be.

The bus terminal just ok. Still not used to no toilet paper. However the bus ride in VIP bus with the extra room was very nice. Toilet ac and reclining seats nice. Bus within minutes of when should and trip was pleasant. We were advised It could be very chilly on the bus due to need for extensive air conditioner but really very comfortable throughout trip. Water and snack given to us. Arrived on time. Allowed to use phone for ticket which was very nice as we did not have printed ticket as requested. Booking very easy.

Comfortable bus, yet a bit old. Complimentary water and a snack were handed out by the hostess. Aa mentioned, it was not cold on the bus, so no need for warm clothes. The bus driver drove very carefully when there was roadwork, so the road was bumpy.

I was in the last row next to a door that loudly rattled constantly thru the trip. The bus attendant told me there was no changing seats although there were empty seats in the front and a few rows away from the rattling door. She was not friendly. I don't think she was having a good day or just doesn't like her job. Water was nice. The snack was a packaged strawberry something. Bus service was fast and otherwise comfortable.

No problems,I do this trip often and its always good.The driver was smooth and safe and the attendant was pleasant and helpful,I got off in Chiang Saen and they dropped me off where I wanted to be. By the way,Green Bus accepts the the image on your mobile device as a ticket,no need to go to the window to get a paper ticket,everything can be done online,how nice....I love 12Go!

On the 12go site I brought a ticket to Chiang rai yet the site sold me a ticket to mae sai, which is the next town & was twice the price. I did not pick it up because I though it was the bus station name which they can do in the UK.

We booked the VIP bus as it was only 2aus dollar more than the standard bus and it came with a toilet, aircon and reclining leather seats. A snack and a bottle of water was also provided on the trip. The Green Bus staff allowed us to show the ticket on my smartphone even though the ticket says it is important to print. All the staff were super lovely. 12go booking quick and simple too.
