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 while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Surprisingly simple to exchange tickets, navigate the station and find the bus, which itself was very modern - great reclining seats and modifiable air con (a luxury compares to other buses in SE Asia) Got some sleep and got to Chiang Mai on time too

Better than what we had before in Thailand. But the meal was a cup of milk and it was too cold. Still ok for comfort and not smelly like many others

overall was a better experience than i imagined. lots of legroom and bus wasn’t even full so i had a row to myself. operator provided water and a snack. it is pretty cold on the bus with the ac but blanket provided. only bad remark is we left an hour later. it looked like they were waiting for passengers

We read a lot of reviews before taking the bus. A lot of the negatives revolved around cold AC, noise, and late departures. We knew what we were getting ourselves into, so we came with low expectations, we prepared for the trip, and it was perfectly OK. If anyone is expecting business class service, you will be disappointed. Taking the bus is cheap and faster than the train, so it has to have a downside somewhere. This being said, our experience wasn't bad at all. No issues with loud music/TV or smelly toilets. The lights were off for most of the trip, except for when the bus stopped. The food is bad but you just have to bring your own. It's not that problematic. It's all about having the right expectations, which we did. It wasn't very comfortable but it was OK. Both my girlfriend (who was 5 months pregnant for the trip) and I slept the majority of the way. It took 11 hours but it was safe. It was a little late but it was very cheap (and we paid the VIP trip). I would do it again if I had to. Definitely a better option than flying, which is 4× more expensive (5× xith luggage) but not 4x better. I imagine the train is a decent alternative but again, it's 1,5× more expensive and by personal accounts of fellow travellers, not 1,5× better.

Bus left 2,5 hours late without any explanation. We were just sitting there while some passengers showed up 2 hours late. Apparently waiting for them? no wi-fi even though there’s a huge free wi-fi sticker on the bus itself. Uncomfortable sticky rubbery seats. Had some snacks and plenty of stops though.

The bus didn't come. After 20 minutes of delay there was bus from another company which took us from another platform. Workers of a bus station couldn't speak any english so they just came to us, took our tickets and gave us another ones with random sits. The food which should be provided was a one muffin and a small bottle of water. There was one stop on the way, after 2 am where you can exchange your bus ticket for one meal. No toilet paper in the toilet during 10 hours of trip. There was very cold in the bus even under 2 blankets.

The bus was okay. However, I want to complain because the bus that we've ridden was not the one we booked. We are somehow disappointed. I hope there will be a compensation for this matter.

Wasnt the bus we booked... There were no charge places, no tv. When we came at Chiang Mai they smashed the door And said chiaaaang maii. Hurry you need to go noww! Go gooo! Would be Nice if they told us 2 or 3 minuten before we were at the end destination. We stopped like 4 times.. no clear explanations... Hopefully they wil take more care for the people that booked

You expect a usual amount of confusion and non communication with these companies but this one took the biscuit, late, not at the right bay yeah just normal for Thailand But randomly stopping several times before being woken up to change buses in the middle of the night ... again no explanation ..

Bus was fine. It came 2 hours late. We didn’t know it was a lunch stop so we didn’t get food and we didn’t have another stop so my family was starving when we arrived in Chiang Mai at 8pm.

The bus terminal and ticket counter were really hard to find and the staff not very helpful as hardly anyone understood our problem. So I would definitely plan to be there more than half an hour in advance!! We were searching for like 1 hour or more. Anyhow, the bus trip itself was quite good, we departured 20 min late, but got some snacks and a blanked and arrived on time. The seats were comfortable and you could lean backwards. We could even sleep in the bus. It was not as comfy as a nice hotel room, but definitely worth the money and for poor backpackers such as me a great opportunity to travel from A to B :)
