Passenger reviews out of total 25,212 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.

De chauffeur was erg onvriendelijk en maakte open enig moment een opmerking tegen mijn vrouw dat zij haar been naar beneden moest doen toen ze dat vanwege een kramp op mijn schoot had gelegd. Verder telefoneerde hij tijdens he rijden en reed hij niet soepel.

Indy 500 anyone? You'd think he got a bonus for passing the most people. He passed multiple vehicles on blind corners. You just have to trust they know what they're doing. But seriously, is it necessary to get there before anyone else? We we're 20 mins early even with a 10 min pee break (which we had to ask for).

Driver promised to let us off the van 3km before Pai, close to our accommodation, but he didn’t stop even when we told him it’s the place. Really strange behavior. Seats were not comfortable and one wheel was making a loud noises all the way. Otherwise it was ok.

★★☆☆☆
Politely asked the driver if it would be possible to stop off at our accommodation along the way as it was on the road into Pai. For some unknown reason he stopped the bus at the Hot Springs and opened the door asking us to get out. When I told him that it wasn’t the correct place, and it was just a further 10minutes up the road he raised his voice and slammed the van door. We then drove past our accommodation and he refused to stop. Journey was fine but very rude driver, cost us another 150 baht just to get a taxi back down the same road.

Drove safely, in Thai way. Very unfriendly, not one word in English. The pitstop we did was a paying toilet, and véry unhygienic. No paper, unless you payed even more. Of all places, pitstop there?? But hey, his job was to take us from chiang mai to pai and that’s What he did. Nothing more, nothing less.

★★★★☆
Had no problem finding the minivan bay, it was there ages before departure. Large luggage gets strapped to the roof so I advise you have your important stuff with you inside just incase the luggage comes flying off. Set off on time, had two stops, one for fuel and the second about half way just to stretch our legs for 10 minutes. Arrived about 15 minutes late. Honestly it wasn't the most comfy of rides, the vans seats aren't comfy and are made of faux leather. Finally, be prepared for very winding roads, once you get away from Chiang Mai it's constant sharp turns all the way, luckily nobody was sick but I was certainly feeling ropey at the end.

Really had to use the restroom halfway thru and was told there would be a bathroom break halfway thru, but we never stopped. Also, the driver passed along some tight corners and came super close to a head on in the process, not the best ride of my life.

Bags were stacked next to my seat leaving very little room, it's a windy road and if you are prone to motion ilness a little wiggle room tends to be necessary, ticket collection was simple just keep an eye out for your numbered bus on the station platform

Amazing!!! Last time I went to Pai the driver drove crazy! So this time I was a bit scared before we left but the ride was perfect. The driver drove very carefully, I felt safe all the time and he was nice. Of course I only have experience with this particular driver, so maybe there are insane drivers in this company but I would really recommend to give it a try.

Safe driver. Good to see he had a good lunch at the rest stop. I enjoyed the calming music he played. He was quick to respond when a passenger was not well. He pulled over so she could use the rest room and waited patiently for her. Have booked the van for route to airport. The ticket office workers are not so friendly or helpful so the ticket part was a bit stressful.

The mini van left on time and made every effort to arrive on time. Our driver was just speeding through curves like he was auditioning to be on the next “too fast too furious (road to pai)” movie. We almost ran over a cow napping on the road... came out of nowhere... Anyway we arrived safe and sound, just a little nauseous.

Driver went far too fast, especially round corners were people were struggling to stay in their seat. Kept moving into the other lane despite oncoming traffic. One guy even started to be sick. Air conditioner was turned off for the journey despite paying extra for this minibus (rather than an alternative) for the AC. The stop was good and the driver at least got us there in good time.
