Passenger reviews out of total 2,553 passengers 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 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 ^_^

★★★☆☆ Aug 21, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
We left and arrived on time, but there was no air conditioning in the bus and the bags were all crammed in next to us, which when we all had big rucksacks made it quite uncomfortable.
★★★★☆ Aug 20, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Good driver, got us very quick from Pai to Chiang mai..... 14.00-16.40
★★☆☆☆ Aug 18, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Pros: did not take unnecessary risks and had good judgement of distances Cons: Extremely loud (terrible) music Pointless double or even triple (e.g. discountinuous) braking before turns Aggressive steering, accelerating and breaking in general
★★★★★ Aug 18, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
5 star for sure...courteous, and friendly...and I've heard about some drivers are a little crazy driving too fast...this was just perfect. thank you
★★★★★ Aug 17, 2017 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
We left exactly at 7:00 h. We were afraid it would be a bad ride because I heard some people had such an experience but it was actually a very nice ride. We had to catch a plane so it was nice that it only took 2 hours and 45 minutes.

★★★★★ Oct 13, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
This was a great ride. The driver took the turns slowly and we did not feel sick. Because on our way to Pai the driver was awful.
★★★★☆ Oct 1, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
This trip with Prem Pracha minivan from Pai to Chiang Mai was quite good, due to the excellent driver. Whereas the trip to Pai was like a rollercoaster gone wild, multiple passengers vomiting and me clenching myself to the seat in front of me for fear of death, this return trip actually felt like a walk in the park. Only downside was that no water was provided, hence the 4/5 stars. Conclusion: Prem Pracha can be a nice way of transportation to Pai, but it really depends on the driver and his driving style (or should I say death wish?)

★★☆☆☆ Sep 6, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
The bus ride from pai to chiang mai was good, however Iam disappointing in the service from 12 go asia. I specifically booked through the site so we could reserve a seat, however Im pretty sure you can do this at the office now anyway. My main issue though is that I did my destination as chiang mai airport from pai only to realise on arrival to chaing mai bus station that this was not the case. I then had to get a taxi for another 250THB, so be careful when you book and check your destination because it might not actually take you there. It shouldn't even have the airport as a choice as it wont take you there and this is very misleading. The booking fee booking is pretty high also 117THB for two tickets, the bus ticket was only 150 THB each. It much easier and cheaper to buy all your travel tickets locally from stations or touts.
★★★★★ Aug 11, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Perfectly on time. Driver with very good driving style, safe and smooth
★★★★☆ Aug 7, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★☆☆☆ Jul 30, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Bags were placed on top of the bus without something to cover it for the last part of the ride. It rained terribly so all of the bags were soaking wet

★★★★★ May 9, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :

★★★☆☆ Feb 13, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
El conductor bien a mitad de camino se averió el coche pero en 10 minutos llego otro más pequeño y fuimos muy incomodos
★★★☆☆ Feb 9, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Not really sure why it's called VIP as it's just a normal minibus/van. Highlights - left on time and arrived early. Lowlights - small minibus a little cramped and the driver was a little too fast on these small windy roads taking over on blind bends. Also he didn't stop at the break point half way through the trip which is kinda needed as this journey is on really windy roads which make you feel sick. My partner was actually sick but the bus driver didn't slow down or even stop to left my partner get a bit off fresh air for a few seconds.
★★★☆☆ Jan 6, 2016 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha)
★★★★★ Dec 3, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Excellent
★★★★★ Feb 4, 2015 (bus Minivan, Prem Pracha) :
Excellent ride with great and pleasant staff. Very helpful people indeed, they have called my cell phone early in the morning to remind me about the ride coming on swiftly and to say that the bus is waiting for me - I was impressed. Highly recommended for the outstanding customer service.
