Kanchanaburi to Chiang Mai Destination Reviews

L
Bus très confortable beaucoup de place. Collation distribué et ticket pour un repas à prendre dans une station service. Seul bémol l'arret pour le repas était à minuit ce qui coupe la nuit

The bus was very comfortable, leather seats, reclining, more room than on the plane. The service was top-notch, with snacks and drinks distributed at the beginning of the journey. Remember to take a sweater, there are blankets but it's cold with the air conditioning. We left on time and arrived a little early.

The toilet was okay but you couldnt wash your hands. The seats were great but being 1.96m, my boyfriend couldnt really sleep. Overall a very good bus trip considering it was 11 hours. We will recommend

The bus wasn’t clean. There was condens at all the airco points in the bus. The toilet smelled really bad and at some point you can smell it trough the whole bus. Also the toilet was very nasty and it was basically impossible to go as a female. There was only one stop to go to the toilet, so that was not really nice. But the bus was on time and the staff IN the bus was nice and helpful.
