If you're considering going to Pai from Chiang Mai; this ride must be experienced. That's all I'm going to say. The price is 150 baht, which is quite a bargain. You will never forget this trip! This was one of our highlights from our trip.

Open and airy bus station with plenty of shaded seating. Ticket offices are located adjacent to the main entrance and all platforms are well signed. Plenty of facilities for food and drink. Tuk-tuk ride into town cost us 100 baht.

In my partner's and my opinion, the Prempracha Minibusses are a great way to travel through Thailand. Really cheap (e.g. only around 250 baht for the long ride from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son), clean and comfortable cars, no deep-freezing aircon, no annoying karaoke...More
