Passenger reviews out of total 15,729 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.

Driver very bad attitude..very hostile towards Frarang althought I am a Asian...Grumpy and lack manners considered he is Thai..He has no idea where is salary is coming from...He never last 24 hrs. .working under me..for his age..I guess.."A leopard cannot change the spot" Felt Sad for him. .seriously not knowing right from wrong...Education is secondary. Right or correct Attitude is always the Primary choice in a work force or Staff employed...No body is indespensible...I believed 1000%..

Overall this was a great service. The driver drove carefully and slowly around all the bends in the road, the service ran on time and the air conditioner worked well. I highly recommend taking travel sickness tablets (even if you don't usually get car sick), we had 3 or 4 passengers that were sick along the way.

Air conditioned mini bus. It is what it is to be honest and you can't really expect much more. It's a windy and bendy route and our driver was safe and careful. We arrived safely albeit a little later than expected.

Fast, direct. One quick stop so people can use the washroom and grab a snack. I would recommend a window seat or the open seat next to the driver if you get car sick easily. It is a VERY fast drive along incredible winding roads. Even the strongest of stomachs will get upset.

Trip to Pai had not been as bad as I was expecting as per previous reviews we had read, I had even taken a precautionary gravol beforehand but the driver had navigated the winding roads effortlessly and I probably could have done without. I really have no complaints! Thank you.

We booked tickets online beforehand and was easy to transfer these from the email on my phone to paper ticket at the ticket sales desk. Was a little bit difficult finding the right terminal however a staff member was able to point us in the right direction. Tip: arrive at least half an hour before your bus to ensure you find the right terminal. The minivan ride from Chiang Mai to Pai was fine and comfortable and ran on schedule.

I had a very good and smooth trip from Chiang Mai to Pai on time on schedule. Our driver is very good, safe and defensive driving, handles the vehicle excellently, clearing all the few hundreds of sharp bends and up and down slopes safely. Excellent driver and sorry did not get his name. BTW my trip was Jan 31 2018 11:30am van no.43. This12Go on line reservation is also very well done booking system, very easy to complete. At the Chiang Mai Bus terminal 2, check-in is seamless and easy. Very good transport service and will recommend to others.

Drivers are a little scary, always crossing the center line. But it seems that all drivers do that, and he managed the corners well enough. Even provided vomit bags, since the road is so twisty!

It was a good trip, before i took a pill for travelling. The driver drove really good! Compliments, only reason that out is a four stars. Is because we were sitting in the front, normally with alot of Place for legs. But i coudnt put my legs normal on the ground, shared some food space with someones in de corner of the chair hi. Im only 1,67 so pretty small. That would be a big problem voor larger people.

We actually arrived 3hours too early for this trip and although unable to change the tickets to an earlier minibus as they had been bought on line we were able to buy new tickets for under £4 each to board the bus leaving just then 3 hours before our booked one. We actually had 5 empty seats so could be really comfortable for this mountainous ride. We had just the needed short stop and the driver delivered us appropriately upon arrival in Pai.

Booking through 12Go is always a blast — simple and fast. HOWEVER, this drive up to Pai was horrendous. Yes, we made it in one piece and cut an hour off the projected timetable. But, this came at the cost of serious comfort. The driver sped through all 700+ turns so quickly he was never in his lane. Several times, the back tires slid off the road and into the shoulder as he turned. I was thrown from my seat at least once, despite holding onto the rail in front of me and being strapped in tightly. Two passengers in the van vomited from the haphazard back and forth swaying, though i think not because of the actual motion, but because of the speed of the driver. It was memorable, but for a lot of the wrong reasons. 1 Star for us making it all alive and 1 Star for 12Go.

They mixed up the vans which led to confusion about which one to get on and multiple people fighting over the same seats. The customer service is terrible and not much English is spoken. However, once we were finally in the correct van, the ride was perfectly fine. The driver, who was a bit older, drove fast but not recklessly, even as he constantly passed other vehicles. We got to Pai in just around 3 hours. I recommend taking your motion sickness meds if you need it, as one of our passengers was vomiting the entire trip.

Finding the checkin desk was easy enough and the staff spoke enough English to communicate the loading procedure and minivan position. Our backpacks were accommodated with out charge. The seats are comfortable enough but a large person would struggle especially for the length of the journey which was supposed to be 3 hours. Our driver left Chiang mai at a reasonable speed but once out of the city into the mountains fairy raced along at times cutting the corners which is a bit fast on roads with continual switch backs for 100k even the most seasoned traveler could not help be travel sick. Warning take sickness pills as this is the road from hell the view of primordial rain forest just about makes up for the journey. We had constant rain all day even in the dry season. The scary bit was the series of horrendous crashes were saw on route cars overshooting corners headlong into trees one had gone over the cliff edge completely out of site. Our journey stopped completely for an hour because some had tried to overtake on a blind bend and the front of his new car was missing. We saw 7 fresh accidents in 3 hours backing up Thailand position as 2nd most dangerous roads in world. Having said that we survived and are doing it all in reverse again soon.

Good driver which is needed on very curvy roads - more than 700 curves they say! On negative side: Very litle room for baggage made it difficult when all seats were taken. The fastening part of safety belt did not work on several seats made it nonsence to annonunce that using safety belt is mandatory!

I would have rated 5 but for the speed with which the driver took the bends and for overtaking on blind bends. Driver was friendly though and allowed my son to move up front with him as he was feeling very car sick. Clean and comfortable bus with assigned seats, 3 hours including 10 min stop. Amazing scenery and I would recommend to anyone who doesn’t mind the scary driving! Hoping the return journey back to Chiang Mai is as good, though I would prefer to stay in beautiful Pai!
