Passenger reviews out of total 6,318 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 ^_^

Very comfortable small coach, driver was good and safe. A lot of sharp turns but fantastic countryside. A good trip

★★★★★ Nov 21, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The bus ride is fun and scenic. You can't beat the price. There is typically a rest stop on the way where you can stretch your legs, relieve yourself and avail yourself to good food. Once in Pai everything is easy to negotiate. It is worth visiting Pai if only for the trip from Chaing Mai. Book your seat either at the stations or on line a little in advance. You can choose your seat. I recommend from Chiang Mai to Pai get a window on the left. Other direction try the right side for the splendid vistas. Sure there are a lot of curves up and down the mountains but it really is not bad. It is fun!

Driver was great
★★★☆☆ Nov 16, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The vehicle was clean and equipped with seatbelts. Driver drove very carefully, taking the beds at a steady pace which made the over 700 bends bearable. But the Aircon was very hot, stuffy and uncomfortable. Bring along a fan.
★★★★★ Nov 14, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Make sure you are at the bus station not terminal, but other than that it was good. 7/11 at station to buy goods at. Bus was airconditioned and had selected seats. Stopped half way for a bathroom and quick snack break. Got in 50 minutes early. Definitely a winding bus ride due to the terrain, taking gravel before would be recommended.

After all the horrors we read about this trip, I guess we were very lucky. The drivet was very careful, no speed racing. Neither me or my girlfriend got d
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The road was beautiful and the driver drived safely even if the road was winding and dangerous. Try to do it at the sunset, amazing view of the mountains! 3.5h from Chiang Mai with mini-van.
★★★☆☆ Nov 12, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :

Are driver, Mr Taweewat dongrumkan, drove perfectly! Normally I get motion sickness very quickly but with 2 motion sickness pills and his excellent driving I had no problem AT ALL. not all drivers are like that! Mr Taweewat dongrumkan wasn't in a hurry, he did not go fast in corners. THANK YOU! More drivers have to drive like him!

★★★☆☆ Nov 7, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The customer service was poor. Not one smile. I offered to help open a packet of chewing gum for the driver whilst driving and he shrugged me off rudely. Other than that, the driver was responsible on the road, and we got to Pai safely. Van was confortable.
★★☆☆☆ Nov 6, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Betaalbaar en snel. De chauffeur rijdt werkelijk als een idioot en geeft extra gas als iemand begint over te geven. Voorin zitten en reispilletjes innemen is een must!

★★★★☆ Nov 6, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :

★★☆☆☆ Oct 26, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
We had the trip from Chiang mai to pai at the 26th of october 10:30. The bus number 45 was ok but the driver drove like a maniac. He not only cut all corners and was more on the other side of the road but he used the break at the last possible moment before each turn. I took medicine against motion sickness at the first stop but couldn't prevent getting dizzy. This was really unsafe and irresponsible driving. The driver even refused to drive slower with the explanation that he has no time and is on a tight schedule. However we arrived an hour and 15 minutes early. I wouldn't recommend that driver. The service at the station was good and the bus clean.
★★★☆☆ Oct 20, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Very fast driver, with sometimes taking risks to pass another driver. With slower riding and arriving 15-20 min later it was also okay
★★★★★ Oct 19, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :

On time, driver nice, thank you
★★★★★ Sep 25, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Before this trip I was geared for the worst, after reading about the 700 odd bends and crazy driving... I can say that it was indeedy bendy, however the driving was perfect! Our driver took it very slowly, no dangerous driving, I felt really safe and didn't feel sick once. (however, tips: try to reserve a seat up front, take anti sickness tablets, have a nice playlist to listen to and try and get a kip in!) I was actually sad when it was over as the views were so beautiful!

★★★★★ Sep 19, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
I travel to Pai every month and know the quality of the trip is based on the driver. Our driver was awesome, slow and no one complained of nausea. A nice mix of music made it even a fun trip.

★★★★☆ Jun 28, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Inexpensive and convenient. I don't give it 5 stars because for a road with so many bends the driving was a bit too fast for my taste. If you are prone to car sickness be prepared...

Great bus driver, respect !
★★★★★ May 12, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Very helpful driver, he stowed our bags safely at the back of the bus and other passengers luggage on the roof rack that was secured so baggage didn't go everywhere. Good journey, we made one stop (you have to pay to use the toilet in case you need it). The journey was good, it was windy but both myself and my partner (who on occasions gets travel sick) were fine. I would highly recommend this travel company.
★★★☆☆ Mar 14, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★★ Dec 24, 2016 (charter Economy, Jed Yord) :
Smooth and easy - pleasant, professional, young lady driver.
★★★☆☆ Dec 23, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
I would have rated 4, even with the more than agressive driving style I was faded with. I had to endure the whole trip with my lugagge stuffed next to me and I was sitting in the front seat. It was a bit uncomfortable. I managed to pass the test whitout getting car sick, 1 star for me.
★★★★☆ Dec 11, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
East trip. I didn't find the trip bothersome at all. Driver was safe and took all turns slowly. Arrived on time too. Very good.
★★★☆☆ Dec 10, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Not very easy to navigate the terminal with no information provided. Sight advertises a coach, this is no longer available and you are put on a minibus. Not a comfortable journey
★★☆☆☆ Dec 10, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Driver drove far too fast for the roads. Corners were fraught. Overtook on blind bends.
★★★★☆ Nov 29, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Good
★★★★★ Nov 28, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The trip was very pleasant ,staff were helpful and we got the quickly and safely.Sick bags and water were provided,the road was very curvy driver did the best he could to make it as smooth as possible.I would recommend this company very easy to deal with.
★★★★☆ Nov 21, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Fast (around 2 hours) and the driver drove safely.
