The driver arrived well in advance, but was very clear that we did not have to stress.

Train #167 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jun 1, 2021
We really enjoyed our trip in the 2nd class sleeper carriage. We could sleep very well. We just did not understand why the train was standing for over 1 hour outside Bangkok. And as we had to catch a ferry, it was very tight when we arrived in Chumphon. Luckily the ferry provider who picked us up at the train station accepted to wait until 7:30 am. The train was 2,5hrs. late.

Train #83 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Dec 8, 2020
The staff are friendly and helpful. But the train is very old and noisy. After leaving like 30+ minutes late, it took an hour to get like 10 miles from the station. Literally this whole train was waiting at traffic lights. No signal prioritization or grade separation or anything. Then we seemed to stop every 20 minutes or so for the first part of the trip to pick up or drop off people. Honestly, this train could be like 2+ hours quicker if they ran express and got prioritization at road crossings. Our room was fine. But it wasn’t entirely clean and it definitely hadn’t been updated in forever. There was no food car so you’re on your own to pack food. I’m glad it had air conditioning but we couldn’t control it in our room so we froze. Better than the alternative I guess. Plus, man was it loud and bumpy! Bring earplugs or sleep may elude you. The train was fun and nostalgic but unless they update the entire system, it’s going to remain a novelty for most people rather than a viable transportation option.

Train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Mar 27, 2020
Must say that overrall, it was more than a pleasant experience. The attendant that was looking after the carriage i was in was pretty helpful as in he ensured that i was awake some half-hour before the train arrived at Chumphon(i asked him to). Only one hiccup and that it would have been better if the reading light was working.

How to get from Bangkok to Chumphon by Train

Taking a train to get from Bangkok to Chumphon is a safe, fast, and scenic option to travel the country. On certain routes, there are multiple train departures per day every 10 to 15 minutes. This is typical for intercity travel, while for long distance train routes there are fewer scheduled departures – plan ahead to choose the one that fits your itinerary best.

For long distance train journeys, we recommend reserving your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Buying train tickets via our online booking system will allow you to choose and reserve the best Bangkok to Chumphon tickets.

Buying your tickets online will help you secure the trip on the selected date and avoid queuing at the station.. When travelling on weekends and holidays it is recommended to reserve tickets much earlier due to a much higher demand. During high season, train tickets sell out quickly – do book as early as you can.

How long does it take to get from Bangkok to Chumphon by Train?

Travel time from Bangkok to Chumphon is estimated to be about 6h 16m. Trains ensure the fastest time to travel by land. As normally there is no congestion, the speed of travel is more or less constant and stops at train stations are rather short, train is almost always one of the quickest and safest ways to get from Bangkok and Chumphon.

The most important thing that may affect train travel time is the type of train. Ordinary trains travel at a speed of about 40 mph or 65 km/h to 65 mph or 105 km/h. Some intercity trains with shorter distances between stations run slower than 40 mph. Even with these low speeds, it can still be faster than commuting by car, bus or taxi.

The speed of express trains can reach up to 100 mph or 160 km/h. Modern high-speed trains can run at speeds exceeding 250 mph or 400 km/h.

These speeds of travel together with relatively short stops between stations can greatly shorten the duration of your trip.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

One of the best advantages of travelling by train is that railway stations are often conveniently located within or very near major cities and urban areas. Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.

Lastly, unlike buses and other overland means of transport, trains are very rarely involved in accidents.
