Passenger reviews out of total 1,924 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.

Bus cómodo, puntual, y buen trayecto. El trato de las azafatas genial. Nos dieron 1 agua, 1 cola y un sándwich embolsado. Además 30bhats de descuento en una área de servicio donde paramos sobre las 11.30pm. Llegamos a Arcade Station de Chiang Mai sobre las 6.30.

Lovely comfortable seats with plenty of leg room. Aircon is quiet cold so a jacket is needed. Stewardess on the coach was quiet rude and WiFi didn't work. Also there is a stop off after around 4 hours, you receive a food voucher for this but the food was questionable!

Straightforward journey, bus was as expected, reclining seats, blanket , snacks and drinks handed out. Stopped at service station, check out lady had to explain the vouchers worth - we got a couple of drinks each (voucher was up-to 30baht value) as at 11.30pm was too late for us to eat. Asked the hostess on the bus whether there was any Wi-fi on board as we were expecting it and she flatly said no which was disappointing because we could see the Wi-Fi icon, but not a major issue. We arrived early which was a surprise.

Didn’t have the perfect sleep as to be expected but the seats were roomy and comfortable and the snacks and food provided were good. Got to Chiang Mai at 5.30 am, so make sure your hostel/hotel has a 24/7 reception or is aware you may arrive early

Was a fantastic trip, arrived earlier than expected and was a smooth journey, would definitely recommend, the only thing I would say is for foreign passengers it would be helpful to have everything translated into English.

Clean, on time, efficient, pleased with first trip in Thailand on a bus for 12 hours. Toilet could be cleaned more regularly and air fresheners used in there for long journeys

The bus was an half hour early, which was nice. For a 12 hour trip I only got 200ml water and one smal bag of chips. I think it is bad that it is said on the site, but you get so little. Also the toilet was really dirty and smelled bad. And they spoke bad and little english.

The Bus was on time and quite comfortable. You have a lot of leg room and the seats go very far back so you can sleep pretty well. The AC was not working on the Bus at first but that was fixed very fast and we still arrived on time.

We took this bus as we were too late scheduling a train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The bus was pretty convenient, able to lay back to get some sleep. AC was minimal, but since it's night and you are going to Chiang Mai (in January at least!) it's totally fine. Definitely a good solution to go to Chiang Mai :)

We reserved for 6pm bus, at 5:30 pm they told us at the station it's cancelled and next is at 7:45 pm. They were kind to offer we can leave the bags there in the office. When we arrived at 7:15 pm to get on the bus, a rude, probably drunk man was hurrying us when we were dealing with our luggage.. We left 7:30 pm, they told us we will arrive to Chiang Mai at 12 pm, 6 hours later than the original plan.. They gave us few small snacks and water. The bus stopped in the middle of nowhere in a busy food-toilet station, people got out, we did not get any info. I asked how long do we stay here, they said 2 minutes, we rushed to toilet, when we got back, the bus was nowhere and there were dozens of other buses. A food seller guy told us, the bus driver have shower, they will come back.. We arrived at 8am to Chiang Mai. Maybe we had bad luck, but I won't recommend this company. We were happy with the minivan companies all over Thailand.

Overall for the money it was a good trip. Stopping at the food court was confusing, no one spoke English to tell us to use out bus ticket to get the voucher. If you could record in English that would he helpful.

The bus was really comfortable, a lot of space but that’s it. The wifi did not work the whole way, only in Chiang Mai (our final station), my backpack was very wet when I got it from the bagage storage (water from the air-co i suppose, but I am not sure), the staff threw our luggage on the dirty parking ground when unpacking. So ad it up - a wet backpack and dirt. I have a really dirty backpack now.

The journey was good, the check-in fast and we were faster than estimated. The announcements were all in thai, so i didn't understand anything but that was not a big problem. In the beginning we got a small bottle of water and two sweet snacks, later on (around 11pm) we stopped at a restaurant where we could exchange a food voucher for either a cold drink or one of the dishes offered at the counter. There were quite a few dishes to choose from although the portions were not really big (as it was a night bus you probably don't need much anyways). The wifi worked well. It was possible to recline the seats, it was far from lying horizontal though. However it was ok for one night.

Had to take the VIP bus, as the express bus was fully booked. Comfortable reclining seats. Blankets were provided to keep you warm from the air-con :-) Stopped twice on the way for food and toilet needs. The onboard toilet was clean too. Friendly and helpful staff on board.

We booked the vip bus but it was full so we had to take the express bus {for a lower price). Contrary to our expectations it was actually quite OK. Enough leg space, a plateau underneath your legs. We used the blanket as a pillow and slept for about 6-7 hours total.

Great journey I was injured and they were very helpful helping me off the bus for the meal I would have given five star but the WiFi was temperamental. I could only use it for about 2 hours of the journey really comfortable seats that recline almost to bed even got some sleep. Very little English but they did try great service.

We travelled from Kanchanaburi to Chiang Mai and it was a very good service. We were given water and snacks upon entering the bus and stopped after four hours where we could have had food which was included in the ticket price. Make sure you have a jumper as the air conditioning is set very high and although they provide blankets it was chilly. The seats recline right and there is a foot rest that comes up so it was very comfortable. We were supposed to arrive at 7 am but got there at 5.30 am so if you’ve booked accommodation get an early check in.

The bus was really convenient as it was overnight which saved one day of paying for a hostel. I'd recommend being careful with your personal belongings as you're squeezed in quite closely with a stranger. I felt like I couldn't sleep properly because I was worried about my bag being taken. Otherwise it's an enjoyable experience - there's aircon and free food and water.
