Passenger reviews out of total 135,657 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 ^_^

★★★★☆ Jan 18, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Very good service, only clima was set too low. Next time improve temperature, and it will be 5* :-)
★★★★☆ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Pros: It was a fine trip and everything with 12Go Asia went fine. The train staff was very smiling and polite and I actually had my best cup of coffee so far in Thailand in the train. Cons: the light is on all night!!! I would have had a lot more sleep, if they dimmed it a bit.
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
I was very impressed by the service from 12Go! We were able to find your well marked office to pick up our tickets several days before the trip. Not knowing what to expect, we arrived much earlier than we needed to, to be sure we knew where to go, and t that point there were no 12Go t-shirts around, but we found our train car and cabin very easily. Your representative made his rounds on the train itself before we left, making sure you clients were set and where they were supposed to be. The ride was great, the cabin very comfortable, the train took off exactly on time and arrived exactly on time. We will use your services again in a heartbeat!
★★★★☆ Jan 18, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Relative to price this service was good, clean and comfortable. The down fall was punctuality, 13 hrs became 14 hrs.
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Super easy and enjoyable trip. The 12Go staff was very helpful with ticket pick up and at the train station.
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2018 (bus VIP27, Sombat Tour) :
We do recommend this trip. Cheap, fast and very comfortable sit with lots of free snacks and refreshements during the trip. The departure and arrival to the final destination were both on time. The service on board we could not ask for better. We were concerned and regretting not taking a plane to Chiang Mai, however in the end we were much better on the coach trip, we payed less than half of the price of air Asia fare. The sits are wide, comfortable, with adjustable chair that gives you massages if you want. They even provide a neck trip cushion and a little blanket. We stoped in the middle of the journey in a buffet Thai restaurant and the food and water were free. We ended up paying for a coach trip, we saved one night of accommodation in Thailand and with food inclusive. If you are looking for a cheap comfortable trip pick this one is worth it ;).
★★☆☆☆ Jan 18, 2018 (bus VIP24, Bangkok Busline) :
Needed to cancel, took many days to get a reply until the day before than i was told it was no refund. But anyways good bus have been before
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2018 (bus VIP24, Bangkok Busline) :
Everything went well! I agree with other travelers that the extra bit of cost for the VIP bus is worth it for the wide comfortable seats with lots of legroom. Snacks, water, and the stop for a free buffet light dinner are nice extras.
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Very comfy train ride w/ AC on 2nd class train. Slept well. Electrical outlet provided for each bunk.
★★★★☆ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train was clean and well staffed. Lights are on all night so bring a mask and ear plugs if a light sleeper. Bring snacks and drinks for onboard and /or purchase food at the restaurant but the menu is limited.
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2018 (bus VIP, Siam First) :
Very comfortable bus with snacks and comfy seats. It arrived in perfect time as scheduled
★★★★☆ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Can have some bottle of waters...
★★★☆☆ Jan 18, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The seat is uncomfortable and the bed is uncomfortable. The food is bad too. Im a 6ft guy so trying to get comfortable is hard to do too on the chair and on the bed. It gets you from point A to point B though.
★★★★☆ Jan 18, 2018 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Train left on time and comfortable seat. Complimentary beverages, snacks, and lunch were provided. Nice views from window, courteous train staff.
★★★★☆ Jan 17, 2018 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Overall experience is good. Bed is clean, space decent for asian size passenger. We learned to prepare our own bed. Upon arrival, there was staff to help clear the bedsheets and pillow case. Worth the money spent for overnight train.
★★★★★ Jan 17, 2018 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Jan 17, 2018 (train #9 Class II Ladies Only, Thai Railways) :
Very simple process. Was a little disappointed they chose the top berth for me when I’d have rather paid they extra to be on the lower, but alas it’s a small detail. The ticket office was across the street from the train station which I appreciated. Was able to get on the train 30+ mins early, the train staff set up all the berths. Was very clean and safe. Would definitely go through this process again.
★★★★★ Jan 17, 2018 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Jan 17, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I took a lower bed in a 2nd class train heading to Chiang Mai from Bangkok. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the service during the journey was great. I found the 12goAsia Office very easily. Everything went great!
★★★☆☆ Jan 17, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
This is a really fun, but not especially comfortable, way to travel. I’ve no regrets about doing it though, and if you’re even mildly up for an adventure I’d advise you to have a go. I’d have rated it higher but the lights in the carriage are left full on all night, which made it hard to sleep. And the toilets are pretty stinky, though I’ve seen worse. Still - give it a go! The 12Go Asia booking system worked really well - thank you.
★★★★★ Jan 17, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great ride...super clean and comfortable!
★★★★☆ Jan 17, 2018 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The AC is too cold
★★★★☆ Jan 17, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Excellent services. If you have an upper berth you need a sleeping mask as the light is on all night. The train is freezing cold till converted to sleeper , then a blanket is available. Go to food car to get WiFi password
★★★★☆ Jan 17, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Ticketing easy through 12goAsia. Overnight sleeper to Chaing Mai was fun. The seat/beds comfortable and the staff efficient in setting up the bunks for the evening. We were advised to eat before journey and take snacks. The restaurant car was reasonably priced but a limited menu from what I could see. Initially it was very cold enboard as the air con was set at around 21 degs, so take warm clothes, the lighting in the carriages is not dimmed at night.

★★★★★ Jan 17, 2018 (train #9 Class II Ladies Only, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Jan 17, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Clean, and friendly service.
★★★★★ Jan 17, 2018 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
This went much better than I thought. With a 2nd class ticket I wondered what we would get, but we got a shiny new train with good seats, plenty of overhead luggage storage, and morning snack, lunch (minimal, but better than nothing), and afternoon snack (all free). With bathrooms that were clean and had toilet paper. Buying the ticket through 12Go was easy, and the pickup was easy, even though we picked up unannounced several days in advance.
★★★☆☆ Jan 16, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Freezing cold and claustrophobic in the upper bed.
★★★★☆ Jan 16, 2018 (bus VIP, Lignite Tour (PK)) :
Bus was okay, excluding the toilet which was dirty. Left a bit late but arrived early so nothing to complain there. Few times we woke up during the night when they flashed the lights for no apparent reason. Overall can recommend though.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 16, 2018 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The trip was good but i could not sleep because there weer so many bugs in the train... i was so afraid ... very dirty!
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (bus VIP, Siam First) :
Easy,useful,reliable.
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great ride, quiet, modern, very clean. If you book top bunk it’s a bit bright as they leave light on all night.
★★★★☆ Jan 16, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Surprisingly comfortable, wish lights went off at night
★★★☆☆ Jan 16, 2018 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Overnight A/C sleeper carriage. Curtains separated bunks form the carriage walkway. Lights were not turned off during the night and the fluorescent seeped in through gaps. Bunk was wide enough for 2 people to share one bunk. It is recommended to take an eye mask to be able to get some sleep.
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
everything perfect
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (train #51 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :

★★★★☆ Jan 16, 2018 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Smooth ride. Comfortable for a train.
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Jan 16, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train it’s self was fantastic, but the AC was set very cold & lights were on all night so I recommend to bring I mask & warm clothes. We would definitely do this type of trip again in Thailand
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Super trip – the lights were perhaps a little bright, but understandable for safety/security and easily overcome with an eye mask
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
very clean enjoyable trip. recommend doing 1st class ticket as this includes shower and more privacy.
★★★★★ Jan 16, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Jan 15, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
everythink was perfect !
★★☆☆☆ Jan 15, 2018 (bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour) :
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 ..
★★★☆☆ Jan 15, 2018 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Long trip could be improved by 1) not having the A/C so cold, 2)train needs a good clean (cockroaches don't belong) Pleasant enough
★★★★☆ Jan 15, 2018 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Service is very good except the train is very old and we could not sleep because of the noisy rattler train

Everything went smoothly and comfortably thanks to 12go.asia.
★★★★☆ Jan 14, 2018 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
The bus ride was comfortable enough considering it was a 10 hour ride. We left on time and arrived at 5, two hours after the listed time, but hey. The blackest were big and warm, and the seats were spacious. They also gave little snacks and water which was nice. There was a bathroom but I only used it once. We stopped often for breaks and to drop passengers off, which I wasn’t aware of, but it seemed convenient for them. All I’m all it was a quick trip and there were no big mishaps. Thanks guys!

Trip went just as described. One thing though, no towels on the train so take one with you. Other than that we had a wonderful time.
★★★★☆ Jan 14, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Jan 14, 2018 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
We found our compartment easily 90 minutes before departure but it was small and cramped for 2 quite big people. Unfortunately we had no idea that there was a good meal available on board and had just desperately stocked up on the only available junk food and unfortunately eaten it!!!! Much regretted. The air con apertures were broken so we could not prevent this flow of freezing air chilling us all night. The small cotton blanket was insufficient but the towel was enormous for just a hand and face wash! And these were removed before we had finished using them! No WiFi as we had taken the old train to be more certain of catching it having returned from the islands that say.

★★★★★ Jan 12, 2018 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
Very comfortable journey.
★★★☆☆ Jan 12, 2018 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Train was freezing cold. We did not expect this and was unprepared. Coach could also do with a thorough clean - cockroaches were running around between seats. Some points to charge electronic devices during such a long day would also be great!
★★★★☆ Jan 12, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Jan 12, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
We purchased our tickets online a couple days before the train ride. When we went to pick the tickets up at the office we were told we weren’t confirmed a place on the train and to wait until 12pm. At 12pm we were told to wait until 3pm and at 3pm we were told to come back an hour before departure. Finally, we were guaranteed our tickets. The train ride itself was quiet, smooth, clean and the staff were great! Only recommendation I have is that they dim the lights during the overnight train ride so it’s easier for people to sleep.
★★★★☆ Jan 12, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Good way to travel, overnight and you are in Chiang Mai the next morning
★★★★★ Jan 12, 2018 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
Comfortable, free food on the bus and a free catered stop, toilets, very clean and all round good.
★★★★★ Jan 12, 2018 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Great service. Slept like a rose.
★★★★★ Jan 12, 2018 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
In one word: excellent. No delays, very clean and staff was very friendly. Suits well for families also.
★★★★★ Jan 12, 2018 (bus VIP24, Bangkok Busline)
★★★★☆ Jan 12, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Jan 12, 2018 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Plus: comfortable, affordable, helpful train staff(happy to help you set up your bed etc) , curtains for private space provided Negative: they didn't turn the light off at night, the sellers from the resturant cart were quite pushy on sales. Moved to a upper bearth, which although cheaper meant I couldnt look out the window to see the beautiful sights.
