Too much aircon, then i was freezing during the trip. Hopefully they gave a blanket

It was already late, and bus came an additional hour late. Not a good experience with children. Busride itself was ok, albeit too many stops on the road and too much light. It served its purpose, nothing else.

Could not be an easier experience. Tickets were posted to the train station ahead of time and the guy manning the 24h ticket booth had them on hand ready to go. Train was packed so we're glad we were able to book ahead of time. Many thanks. It's also worth mentioning that 12Go offered us a small cash refund due to one ticket being cheaper than the other. VERY honest business practice that I wouldn't expect these days.

We have the same bad experiens like Stanley Kay Hock Tay. Look below. So it look likes it happen many times. Arrived after 00:00. ................................................. Stanley Kay Hock Tay (MY, ): Not recommended based on my personal experience - Bus arrived 30 min late. it made many stops along the way - several at Utradit, Lampun, and Lampang, not so much an express to Chiang Mai. No cleaning before next passenger - rubbish/leftovers from the passenger before me and ants were visible too. We arrived at Chiang Mai 1.5hrs way passed my scheduled arrival time. Importantly, we arrrived at Chiang Mai. The only plus, luggage is tag to your seat number so it doesn't get mixed up.

Ticket collection instruction not 100% clear. Stated to pick up tickets at parcel office but no parcel office at this station. Pick up was at ticket office. Suggest update instruction. Other than that excellent
