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 ^_^

★★☆☆☆ Jul 15, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Rude staff on the bus forcing me to change my seat after stopping to pick someone up for the street. Driver was on his phone instead of focusing on the very windy wet road.
★★★★★ Jul 8, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The driver was very pleasant and the route is scenic.
★★★★★ Jul 6, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Comfortable trip with careful driver. Despite the road I could even take a nap!
★★★★☆ 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...
★★★★★ Jun 22, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★★ Jun 18, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Quick and comfortable!

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.
★★★★☆ Nov 15, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)

Perfect!
★★★★★ Nov 10, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★☆☆☆ Nov 6, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Understandably you have to travel to Pai by bus and fill them full but for me I would pay extra money to take some private transportation. It was hot and I got sick on the way up. The company we were so fortunate to go with were less than desirable; - bunch of frat guys not interested in being in the same bus. Overall will be more sale are of what the modes of transportation are.
★★★★★ Nov 4, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Bus left on time. Driver was careful and did a great job on this hilly road.
★★★★★ Nov 1, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Good and timely! Road is very bendy so be warned those who feel sick!!

Van was all right and on time but no very clean
★★★★☆ Sep 6, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★☆☆ Aug 17, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Good driver and clean bus. We wanted to change our bus (one hour earlier) and it had 30bath charge although there was enough space in both.
★★★★★ Aug 11, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Muy buen conductor , aire acondicionado, hay muchas curvas y pitaba en ella por si había algún adelantamiento. Sin duda, muy recomendable.
★★★☆☆ Aug 5, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The seets were oke but the driver drove very fast. At one moment we thought we would crash.
★★★★☆ Aug 2, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★★ Aug 2, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Great ride from Chiang Mai to Pai. The road from Chiang Mai to Pai is very hilly, but we had a great time. The bus was comfortable, cool, and quiet. The driver was courteous and friendly. You get a 10 minute break halfway through the trip at a quaint rest stop.
★★★★☆ Jul 29, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Bus left on time, was fairly comfortable, we had a toilet stop along the way and the driver was helpful.
★★★★★ Jul 26, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★☆ Jul 22, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Air conditioned bus. Efficient service and even took us direct to our hotel for a few extra baht. Wouldn't be great if you were really tall or got really motion sick but otherwise good service for good price.
★★★★☆ Jul 22, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The bus From Chiang Mai to Pai was on time. We made a stop for the washroom and for food. The road was very bendy and motion sickness was an issue for many - dreading the trip back tomorrow.
★★★★★ Jul 4, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
For my trip from Chiangmai Mai to Pai, it was pretty enjoyable. The van was air conditioned and we all got a bottle of water. Enough room to keep your backpack with you at your feet if you wanted (given your backpack isn't huge). We had one quick stop for snacks and bathrooms, other than that the drive wasn't too fast and I didn't feel sick at all.
★★★★☆ Jun 27, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
A minivan- I found the trip fine, motion sickness might be a problem for some since the road from Chiang Mai to Pai is very curvy, but I was okay. Got me there and that's all that mattered!
★★★★★ Jun 11, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
we got there a few min late because out prior bus was running late. the man at the ticket station actually radioed our driver who had just left and they came back to get us! so awesome. much appreciated
★★★☆☆ Jun 5, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Kein Bus sondern ein Mini-Van. Fahrer war sehr rasant unterwegs, auch nachdem sich welche übergeben müssten aufgrund der ganzen Serpentinen.
★★★★★ May 2, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★☆☆ Apr 13, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Did not leave on time. Picked up passengers on the way. Overall a bad experience
★★★★☆ Apr 4, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★☆☆ Feb 24, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
It is a van, not a bus, and they differ in quality, but that's not big deal. My ride to Pai was actually quite enjoyable. Everyone I talked to had said you get very bad motion sickness. However our driver was great, went at a reasonably pace, and I did not feel motion sick at all. However, on the way back , I booked through the same company. The driver drove so fast it was terrifying. A drive that is meant to take from 3.5 - 4 hours took under 3 hours. A girl was sick in the back and the pace still did not slow down. He was tailgating and driving way over the speed limit. Not safe at all.
★★☆☆☆ Feb 12, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
It's not the vip bus. Very unconfortable
★★☆☆☆ Feb 10, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
La furgoneta bien el conductor muy mal conduce como un loco por una carretera en obras y llena de curvas
★★★★★ Jan 22, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Our songtaow went the opposite direction and we were late. The bus driver waited for us and got us to pai on time. Excellent drive!
★★★★☆ Dec 29, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★☆ Dec 2, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★★ Nov 19, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★☆ Oct 16, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The bus was OK, it had air con and the seats weren't too bad. The driver helped us get our bags on and off and we stopped for a toilet break half way through. The only slight negative was the driver didn't recognise the e-ticket, everyone else had a different type, he had to take it to the office to find out what was going on, but it wasn't really a problem.
★★★★★ Sep 17, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Very good and comfortable and really nice staff in the agency.
★★★★★ Jun 23, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
