The bus to Chaing Mai was a new bus. The bus arrived a bit too late, but with all the comfort it was more then okay! We arrived later than the estimated time, but the stops were nessecairy so that was also okay!

Trip was on schedule which is the most important thing. Stops for bathroom and lunch were good. Bus was a little old and worn. My seat back always reclined and wouldn't stay upright. I have a tendency to car sickness and wish you would remove the opaque banner across the top of the front windshield, so I could see forward. That would make me much more comfortable.

I thought the driver did a very good job of getting us safely to Chiang Mai! The seats are not that comfortable, and not much leg room, but they do not claim to be a luxury bus!
