Passenger reviews out of total 13,784 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.

Viaje horroroso. El autobús salió tarde, paró a descargar, paro como 4 o 5 veces en pueblos perdidos. Sentí que el autobús iba a dejar de funcionar en cualquier momento. Llegamos, por suerte, mareada. Una carretera de cabras y montañas.

Highly recommend the Green Bus, VIP class out of terminal 1. We expected it to be cold, as many of the reviews reported, but with a sweater on, it was very comfortable. The vents are above your head and easily able to be closed. The seats were very comfortable and the bus clean. No aggressive driving was done by the driver, making it a pleasant ride. We left exactly on time and arrived 10 minutes late due to road construction. A bottle of water and snack was provided too. Overall, it was great!

The bus was very comfortable. Roomy reclining seats with friendly service. Arriving an hour early for passengers with pre purchased tickets is too long as the bus terminals themselves aren’t comfortable or interesting places to spend that much time waiting. No complaints at all with the vip green bus service. Very economical and relaxing transport with scenery along the way.

Not sure why all the paperwork insisted we be there an hour early, as the bus only arrived 10 minutes prior to departure. We purchased VIP tickets based on stellar reviews, but were disappointed in the conditions of the bus; seats were in bad shape (torn and dirty seat covers, recline function was broken on 2 of 4 seats we occupied and would not stay in upright position). There was a massive mosquito "infestation" on our bus. The first 30 minutes of the trip was a cacophony of passengers clapping their hands to kill as many as they could...before finally giving up. Other than that it was fine.

Well the VIP bus and seats and the second class seats are one the same bus. Kind of like a plane with business class and economy. Only thing is except for bigger seats we got no service . We 200 VB each extra for privilege of sitting on a bigger seat. Our snack was a small bottle of water and a smaller Twinkie cake roll.. We had no internet, USB connection, music, food, tv...nada. No stop to grab something to eat. The ticket said we needed to be at the station one hour before. We arrived dutifully at 8:45. Seems we were the only ones to witty about missing our VIP bus.Most arrived closer to departure.. Second tier seats were being bought close to departure. Do yourself a favour...buy you own water and Twinkie roll and save 200 VB

The bus left 7 mins late and although it was a much nicer bus than our previous trip there was not a lot of leg room, especially when the passenger in front has the chair reclined all the way. The bus was cold but we knew it would be as this is mentioned in the booking confirmation email. Overall a good journey.

The bus is excellent. The seats are very comfortable, i even fell asleep. They give you bottled water. Now, in february 2019, the route is under repairs so the bus had to move slower in some segments. We arrived a little later than expected (about 30min) but i think we would have arrived on time if the route had been OK.

Decent bus experience for Thailand. Bus station easy to get to in Chiang Rai, ticket window easy. Did not even realize there were seat numbers on the ticket. Take a look for that! Seat itself was fine but the recline button is broken on almost all. Mine would just go up and down and up and down, depending on if I moved. The reclined position is too much of you aren’t actually tryin to recline. Stopped halfway for bathroom. Full bus. Drive was beautiful, through the mountains. Slow in parts for construction but not stopped. Made it on or around time. Would take it again.

First make sure you are at the right terminal. Finding the right VIP bus can be a problem. There's no special lane for the so-called VIP buses. You have to walk around to search for the correct VIP bus, the bus will normally arrive 5-10 minutes before the departure time, the ID code will then be display at the wind screen. You have to keep walking around to search for the right bus. Most buses are quite old and the engine noise can be rather annoying, the best part is the wide seat and ample leg rooms. Give yourself plenty of time to arrive early just in case. The employees are not particularly helpful either.

Bus seats were in a reclined position permanently, very uncomfortable in the middle of the day when you don’t want to sleep. Also not the luxury trip described. Bus broke down on hills twice, got going again eventually but was 20/30 mins late.

I was the first person waiting way ahead of the 6.15 departure this morning and when the bus arrived they allowed everyone else on before me.... ???? then once on the bus I got moved seats, the person in front of me had her seat right back basically touching me the whole way. Bus was freezing (as expected) bus stops half way at service station for toilet/snacks which is the only good thing. BOOK IN ADVANCE

1, Good, on time. 2. Toilet bad condition. Door jam. Difficult to open and close. 3. Seat very uncomfortable - seat slanted to one side. 4. Head rest cannot be moved to adjust to body position. 5. Ticket should be issued immediately after booking and payment is confirmed. Sending later cause difficulty to print. To claim ticket at Terminal 1, require to pay 30Baht per person. One page with two names need to pay 60Baht - not reasonable!! Hope can improve. Best wishes. Thank you.

Both drivers and crew were fine. The seats, while comfortable,often have head rests that slip down which I found irritating. I sat in seat 1a which has a window looking forward. It was obscured by forms stuck on the other side and I could not see forward which I did not like. No cooling in the toilet which is tiny and fairly primitive. Not a pleasant experience. However I'll continue to use Greenbus

The travel itself was very comfortable, the bus was OK, the driver was very responsible and brought us from Chang Rai to Chiang Mai within less then 4 hours. Unfortunately, we do not understant why we lost some 100 minutes at the bus station in Chiang Rai waiting for our bus. According to information valid until this morning the departure time was scheduled for 8h15. When we artived at the bus station we learned that it was postponed until 9h40. The bus arrived at 9h35 and left for Chiang Mai at 9h55. Nothing would have happened if we had been informed about it the previous evening, at the latest. To my surprise no information on this delay has been sent to us by email od SMS until now, not to mention a few words of apology.
