train #8 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Dec 12, 2019
Very friendly and helpful conductors. The train itself was dirty and old. I didn't go to the toilet. The food we got was rather cold and not appetising.

train #8 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Dec 8, 2019
The train is getting old, it is affordable, the air-conditioning works, the staff are friendly and helpful, the complimentary food suited me and i enjoyed the view of the changing countryside, from tropical forest to rice fields, and the neatly painted and maintained rural railway stations. I lost my return train ticket and spent much time trying to explain my plight for a replacement ticket first to the railways staff, then Go Asia staff. Eventually they understood and emailed me a copy that night. Much appreciated.

Nice trip, but to much noise on the train. Not any sound proofing whatsoever. Beside this, a nice trip.

View from train is superb. AC is very cold and noone does anything about it. No advance notice of food served on train nor no alcohol rules. Windows very dirty which spoiled the view. Shame when so easily corrected...???? ????

Everything was OK. All in all the trip was a good experience. Train was on time. Lights were on during all night and the train is very cold, but we knew it beforehand. I would recommend to book train #9 instead, which is the new one. Need to book in advance. It was sold out when we did the train booking. Very good experience with 12go.asia.
