Passenger reviews out of total 118,797 passengers traveled with us on this route

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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★☆ Nov 17, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Nov 17, 2017 (bus VIP, Lignite Tour (PK)) :
Really pleasant journey. We couldn't have been happier with the service we received. Slept almost all the way through with comfy chairs and plenty of leg room and room to recline. The staff were really friendly and there was no problem at all with temperature as other comments have seemed to state. The only problem was that the bus arrived into Chiangmai 2 hours early which left us with a problem of what do we do at 5:30am.
★★★☆☆ Nov 17, 2017 (bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour) :
326 Miles for 520 baht can't complain too much.
★★★★★ Nov 17, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great service. Quick. Fair. Convenient.
★★★☆☆ Nov 17, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★☆☆☆ Nov 17, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I had a fever and they wouldn’t even give me an extra blanket. The top bunk had a blight fluorescent light shining in my eyes the whole time and light was kept on all night. Food served was old and expensive
★★★★★ Nov 17, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train trip in second class was better then i expected. I slept like a baby. I recommend to do not take upper sleeping place, my gf was a bit scared there. I was fine, it was comfortable. 12go asia proved to be perfect solution, they even gave me back some money cause of the price drop. Thats something what will never ever happen in my homeland.
★★★★☆ Nov 17, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
A must experience....only wish they would have turned the super bright lights out.....

★★★★★ Nov 17, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Nov 17, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Would've been the best point A to point B travel experience I've ever had except I was in a car full of older Thai ppl who all knew each other, and they stayed up until midnight yammering and laughing loudly, then they were up at 4:00am and right back at it. Impossible to block out the noise, so I only got 4 hours of sleep. Wish there were "quiet hours". Also I wish they'd turned the overhead lights off or at least down: thank goodness I had my eye mask ..it was. SO BRIGHT in there. Other than that, my compartment was cozy and practical and I think I would've been in heaven if it weren't for all the noise.
★★★★★ Nov 17, 2017 (bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour)
★★★★★ Nov 16, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Excellent, friendly and prompt service. Highly recommend.
★★★★★ Nov 16, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Couldn’t be happier about this journey. Comfortable, clean and very friendly service! Only suggestion would be to turn off the bright lights at night! But otherwise two thumbs up.
★★★☆☆ Nov 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Service was good but cant sleep

★★★★☆ Nov 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Nice overnight train ride to Chiang Mai. Convenient way to travel without taking time out of your day to do it. Nice way to meet other travellers and tell stories. Train was on time! Able to pre-book via 12GO Asia, pick up tix a few hours before the train ride.
★★★★★ Nov 15, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
So pleased we booked through 12Go as we tried to get tickets at the station but were told we’d have to wait over a week to get the train we wanted. This was simple and easy to book and collect the tickets once confirmed, will definitely book through them again!
★★★★★ Nov 15, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
No fuss service and safe reliable service highly recommend
★★★★★ Nov 15, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :

★★★★★ Nov 15, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
great trip
★★★★★ Nov 15, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
12go make the process so easy for travellers! Booked ticket online and picked up the same day (got the train the day after).. the train was better than expected (2nd class sleeper) comfy, clean and quiet! Got a good nights sleep! 10/10 would strongly recommend
★★★★★ Nov 15, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Nov 15, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Top bunk a little shakier. Also other people on train can be loud. Lights are too bright and should be lowered for night time sleeping. Otherwise, very nice.
★★★★☆ Nov 14, 2017 (bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour)
★★★☆☆ Nov 14, 2017 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
The bus was really comfortable, blankets were provided, some snacks and lunch as well. 4 stars because bus arrived more than an hour late, had no wifi and I couldn’t turn off AC at my seat.
★★★★☆ Nov 14, 2017 (bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour)
★★★★☆ Nov 14, 2017 (train #9 Class II Ladies Only, Thai Railways) :
Super and easy!
★★★☆☆ Nov 14, 2017 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
It was a great trip with the exception of having to get dressed like it was winter time in Canada! Please turn down the AC!
★★★★☆ Nov 13, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
This is the second time I have used 12go and each time it has gone very smoothly. Picking up the tickets in Bangkok has proved straightforward. For this trip I had one slight gripe, their website permitted me to book a first class sleeper but in the event my tickets were for 2nd class, as 1st was already fully booked. I received a cash refund for the difference in price so no problem there. As it turned out 2nd class was fine on this occasion and I made new friends amongst my fellow passengers!
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
Amazing service: Free dinner, comfortable chairs and water offered in the bus.
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I had a very pleasant journey. It's like a hotel within a train ????
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Fantastic!!!!
★★★☆☆ Nov 13, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air) :
Flight late and much waiting.
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Nice, comfortable bed. I was lucky that the one plug in the train was next to my bed. The train left 45 min late, but that wasnt really a problem for me. The breakfast wasn't perfect. I asked for breakfast without meat, but there was still sausage on it. Luckily I could easily take it off the plate and just eat the egg and toast. Overal good train ride from Bangkok to Chiang Mai :) the sunrise, that I could see through the Massive window next to my bed, was amazing!
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
The staff at 12Go Asia were really efficient from the time we booked on line through to checking we were on the right train. The train journey was very efficient and comfortable and with a private sleeper compartment, we slept well and arrived in Chaing Mai ready to hit to the streets.
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Really easy to follow instructions for collecting the tickets and friendly service! Tickets that we requested were booked and we even got 80 baaht back!
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Good service
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour)
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Nov 13, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Picking up tickets was a breeze, the train staff were excellent and friendly. Sheets clean and slept well. Staff kept rowdy tourists under control which was nice or it could have been a long night. However, the toilet smells were awful all the way into the berth and train pretty old, but ok. Only a couple outlets which wasn't enough for the long ride and so many people. Too bad the food car is for smokers. Overall a decent experience.
★★★★★ Nov 12, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
C'était une belle expérience pour ma fille et moi. Autant au niveau de la ponctualité que du confort des couchettes saupoudré par la gentillesse du personnel à bord. Céline et Shani
★★★★★ Nov 12, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I got train tickets from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. Booking was easy, confirmation recieved quickly, and subsequent emails regarding booking, cancellation and ticket pick up received. Ticket pick up was easy and straight forward. Would use again.

★★★★☆ Nov 11, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Lights on bright all night
★★★★☆ Nov 11, 2017 (train #9 Class II Ladies Only, Thai Railways) :
Too bad there's no view from the upper berth. And the big lights stayed on all night. Staff was friendly. Clean train, good AC.
★★★★☆ Nov 11, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
Great flight and the luggage was very fast trough the security and on the luggagebelt!
★★★★☆ Nov 11, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The Ride was pretty Good. Slept Really Good. The only disadvantage: Just a few Power Spots. The Service is great
★★★★☆ Nov 11, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Great way to travel. Aircon was a bit noisy, so ear plugs are recommended.
★★★★☆ Nov 11, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train had 30mins delay but the ride was great, slept like a baby with earplugs and a sleeping mask. Toilet smells but that's normal I guess. Service was good, sheets clean but 3 people in our cabin had seats that were double booked, including us, but we were first ????
★★★★★ Nov 11, 2017 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
Great! Water included, some snacks for breakfast and arrival as well as a local dinner. Very comfortable
★★★★☆ Nov 11, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :

★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Good trip ,air a little chilly. Thought price of food over the top. Orange drink and pringles handed out with no mention of charge, no problem with meal costs 340 for dinner and breakfast but for 890 in total because of snacks,paid it but not happy with
★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
We took the 1st class sleeper and I can honestly say it was an absolute pleasure. The staff from collecting the tickets and on the train were very friendly and attentive. It was quiet and very comfortable. I would be rating this 5 stars if it weren’t for the faulty toilet lid which had to be held up whilst using it. I actually ended up using the squat toilet which was a lot cleaner and less smelly.
★★★☆☆ Nov 10, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Overall an easy and comfortable trip, from picking up the tickets to arrival. Only issue was the train interior did not match the websites photos so I felt we were on slightly less modern cars than expected.
★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
We took train no.9 to Chiang Mai. 2nd class sleeping car was really nice. Thank you :)
★★★★★ Nov 10, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Loved it. Easy to get tickets and a great experience for both me and my girlfriend. Definitely one I’d recommend. Just remember to bring an eye mask as the lights aren’t turned off over night and some ear plugs for a better nights kip. Sam and Lucy. Leicester.
★★★★★ Nov 10, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Using 12goasia was a cinch. The train, seat and sleeping arrangements were as described. A great way to travel. However, I'd recommend earplugs as some passengers can be noisy when joining/leaving the train.
★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (avia Economy, Nok Air)
★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (avia Economy, Nok Air) :
Disappointed to find that we had to pay excess baggage fee as I had 2 kilo over and no way to reduce weight. Otherwise nok air is very good.

★★★★★ Nov 9, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Nov 9, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
