Bus Express, Phet Prasert (เพชรประเสริฐ), Dec 21, 2022
The seats were comfortable enough, but the aircon was far too high and I was freezing throughout the whole journey. Someone also came to sleep at our feet, which was very uncomfortable and bizarre. Also, at every stop throughout the night, the lights came on and woke us up.

Udon Thani was too cold-aircon needs controlling. Very very poor refreshment facilities
flight Economy, Nok Air (นกแอร์), Oct 17, 2022
We were five minutes late leaving and one hour late arriving in chiangmai but that was no problem. the ride was very safe very clean bus. Good strong air conditioning but for those that get a bit cold they provided clean fresh blankets also a bottle of water and a snack were provided. The bus stopped at eight or nine different little bus stations to pick people up but again this was no problem it was an overnight bus I was able to sleep two and three hours here and there and arrived feeling fresh and not tired or worn out I will definitely use this particular bus service again in the future
