Train #86 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railway (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jan 1, 2022
Stayed in the first class sleeper. Originally booked as a couple but ended up solo so had the whole room to myself, was wonderful! Only thing is the train was an hour and a half late to arrive in Chumphon ... not a big deal just make sure to check on the time with the service counter and be back in time to board if you go to check out street food or drinks nearby.
Train #9086 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Apr 20, 2021
Taking an over night train in Thailand is ok, I was able to sleep in the second class. It's not great luxury but it's doable. Often the best quality-price ratio taking into account time needed for the trip. Don't expect any services other than toilet. In all the stops people though come to sell food but you can also take your own picnic or eat before/after getting in the train. In the night train you get clean white sheets and a curtain to have some privacy!

Train #86 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Mar 26, 2020
It is a little too cold an too much light in the top beds. Beds are comfortable and clean.
Train #84 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Mar 6, 2020
Très bon voyage mais 2h30 de retard à l'arrivée. Heureusement que nous n'avions pas d'impératif pour la suite.
Train #174 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Mar 2, 2020
Very easy to pick up tickets near train station. Train was on time. Beds were ready when we boarded. Train arrived about 1.5 hours late to Bangkok but didn’t cause us any issues. I would definitely use 12go again to book travel.
Bus VIP, Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง), Feb 15, 2020
Seats recline quite far, but there is stil not enough legroom to actually be comfortable enough to sleep, if you are like me who isn't usually the best at falling asleep on planes and such (I am 167 cm). The bathroom was better than most busses. The bus arrived 2 hours earlier than planned. That can be both a good and a bad thing. It was fine for the price we payed.

Train #86 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Feb 6, 2020
Hatte als Alleinreisende ein Abteil für mich allein und man konnte absperren. Sauberes Bett, Kissen, Decke. Sehr kühl durch die Lüftung. Eigenes Waschbecken. Gemeinschaftstoilette. Zug und Abteil ziemlich alt und abgenutzt. Mit der verspäteten Ankunft von 2 Stunden hab ich gerechnet.

How to get from Chumphon to Bangkok by Train

Taking a train to get from Chumphon to Bangkok 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 Chumphon to Bangkok 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.

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

Travel time from Chumphon to Bangkok is estimated to be about 6h 50m. 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 Chumphon and Bangkok.

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.

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.
