Tickets bestellen ging makkelijk, goede informatievoorziening. De trein stopt heel frequent, duurt ongeveer 15 uur voordat de trein surat thani bereikt, komt dus later aan dan 12go asai belooft! (+/- 1,5 tot 2 uur vertraging, dit is eigenlijk altijd zo).

train #85 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways, Nov 24, 2019
Zug ist pünktlich abgefahren, sind mit ca 45 min Verspätung angekommen. Kabinen waren nicht so super sauber und die Betten recht hart, haben aber dennoch ganz gut geschlafen und die 12 Stunden Zug fahrt gut herum bekommen. Man konnte unsere zweier Privat Kabine abschließen, was ich sehr angenehm fand.

I asked for a window seat, but only got a aisle seat. So I was a Little bit disappointed. I'm railway-fan and for me is very important to catch a seat with good view of the line.

4 stars because the top bed is too small for tall people and the lights are bright above the curtains.

It's what you can expect. We traveled in a first class cabine with our 1 year old son and had a solid 7 hours of sleep! :) to bad the train was a few hours late

Bett war bequem. Obwohl ich nur mit Ventilator gebucht habe, war die Klima Anlage sowieso an. Die Toiletten sind halt wie im Zug.. Ein Loch im Boden und alles geht raus. Ich konnte wegen den Geräuschen des Zuges nicht so gut schlafen.

train #83 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways, Nov 11, 2019
We enjoyed it! The train definitely has some features that are less than ideal - it’s an older train and it’s a bit rough around the edges. We took the 83 to Surat Thani, first class sleeper car, and the train left and arrived on time. If you have luxury expectations of a first class sleeper, you should reset those expectations right now. The sleeper is private with fairly comfortable seating and sleeping arrangements, but is by no means luxury. Our luggage fit in our car with us and still left room to be comfortable (though it’s a tight squeeze). The toilet is a squat toilet (but that’s what I’d expected) and it was fine. I wouldn’t call the train dirty, just old and therefore a bit grimy. Overall, we enjoyed it and were surprised that we slept as much as we did!

Was on time, clean and maintained. Upper bed quite small and the curtain dont block lamp light. , down beds are very nice. Unfortunatly there is only 1 electrical socket in mid train and another near toilet.

train #43 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Nov 2, 2019
We'd booked the tickets so that when we arrived we would have been able to have gotten the shuttle bus to our hotel in khao sok. There were known delays which we were not informed about which meant we missed the last shuttle bus and had to pay 1800 for a cab to our hotel instead. Other than that the train staff were very nice.

The 12GO Asia part of our trip was GREAT! The email notifications were great, the customer service before arriving was great, the in person experience of picking up the tickets was great... 12GO = one of the best service company experiences I have had in a long time. The train service Thailand offered from Bangkok to Surat Thani = NOT great. The train left 1 hour late, the beds were not made when we got on and took a loooonnnnggg time to be made, the expensive breakfast (180 baht per breakfast) was almost inedible, and the train person walked into our room without asking and rushed us off the train. The train coming back from Surat Thani was much better. It left on time and didn't have long loudspeaker announcements at the stops on the way back. The loudspeaker announcements on the way down woke us up almost every time.

How to get from Bangkok to Surat Thani by Train

Taking a train to get from Bangkok to Surat Thani 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 Surat Thani 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 far is it from Bangkok to Surat Thani?

Travelling by train, the distance from Bangkok to Surat Thani is 400 miles. Before setting
on for a train journey, have a look at the map to find out what tourist spots or landmarks you will pass by – maybe they are worth a quick stop?

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

Travel time from Bangkok to Surat Thani is estimated to be about 8h 40m. 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 Surat Thani.

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.

How much does it cost to get from Bangkok to Surat Thani by Train?

The train ticket price from Bangkok to Surat Thani varies depending on the types of trains or carriages available.

Some trains feature different types of carriages, seats and berths offering various amenities and level of comfort.

Basic passenger trains which are often non-air-conditioned and have wooden, hard or old seats are normally cheap. Premium or luxury trains and coaches have a higher ticket price but are equipped with air-conditioning, toilets, and large soft seats with sufficient legroom to make train rides comfortable.

Considering the distance travelled, train is the most affordable means of transport. Also, ticket prices include 2 or 3 bags – sometimes even more – per passenger.

Trains are great for long-distance travel. Double-check your travel itinerary and use the Bangkok to Surat Thani timetable above with train departure times and arrival times to find the best train for your route.

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.
