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.

The journey itself wasn’t too bad. It took 3.5 hours to arrive in Pai with a 10minute toilet break half way. You can buy drinks/snacks. The lady next to me was sick so I would suggest anti sickness meds as the roads are extremely bendy. The AC wasn’t working and that’s why I have rated it 3 stars.

Driver was kind and good on the wheel. The reason why I’m putting 3 stars is because if you buy tickets online, the personal in the customer service is not keen to help you at all: they don’t want to change you to an earlier van if you arrive earlier in the pick up points, or change seats to be sitting in front of the van, instead to the back (to avoid nausea). By saying it, be aware of the 265 curves to arrive to Pai, meaning you will feel nausea, despite the driver driving fast or slowly.

The Trip started punctual at 10.30 in Chiang Mai and we arrived as expected in Pai by the minute at 13.30. Van was also clean, but the seat rows were for European man a bit to small. Negative point: Driving style of the driver. Everyone felt sick when we arrived in Pai as the driver raced the 762 curves in that route as in an Formula 1 car. If you feel easily sick, keep in mind to bring a sickness bag. Driver does not provide bag's. Actually, I can stand a lot, but these ride was to much. Otherwise, it would be a 5 star rating. If you want cheap and fast transportation go for this.

★★☆☆☆
I have been in cars and minivans many times, but not often I've been in a minivan with a driver as manic as the one I had today. He treated the minivan like it was my Alfa Romeo Guilletta QV (a car that is made for turning corners and mountains) and did things I wouldn't even dare in my Alfa. Tickets can also be bought at the bus station for 75% of the online price. But furthermore, it was all well. Bus was decent, at bus station in Chiang Mai it was relatively easy to get to the right minivan.

Very rough trip. Sorry to only give three stars, since the booking was easy and the driver helpful. But I was cramped up in the back of the car and the kid next to me started vomiting, it goes up and down the mountains so the amount of snack food he was eating should not be allowed on the bus. It was really hot too, ac very weak. But except that it was ok.

Our driver was very funny, always laughing and joking. He seemed to enjoy his job and the guys he works with so that is always a plus to me, when someone enjoys their job they do a great job. He didn’t drive like a maniac like how some people describe the ride to Pai. For that I was grateful.

On the trip, a little girl became car sick, she was forced to sit in the car for 2 hours during the journey. The driver was driving violently on the crooked roads and showed no consideration for the girl's nausea. Very poor driving.

Overall a good journey, but the driver was approaching corners way too fast, some people felt sick due to this. Definitely get to the terminal with plenty of time as you need to check in even though you’ve booked online - this is a slow process as many people are buying tickets at the same time. There is no separate desk for check in and the queues move very slowly.
