Bangkok to Chumphon Destination Reviews

At first all was good, also the train left on time, but at the end the train arrived to Chumpon railway station at 8.15 instead of 5.52 as the ticket said. We lost the ferry to Ko Tao and anybody could give us a refund or a new ferry ticket. We has to buy another one from ourself.

It was a good experience and food on board was quite good ! But more than 8 hours seem very long … especially if you are a smoker !
Train #43 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railway (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Apr 17, 2022
I paid 1900 baht for a first class sleeper with AC. I understand that I was booking for only 1 person which meant I would have to share with a stranger. But person I had to share with was sick. And not just a little sick, but sniffling, sneezing, snotty, and congested. So I was basically locked inside this little AC first class sleeper with a huge contagious germ. I’ve used this service before, and didn’t have this experience. But it just goes to show you never know who you’re going to end up bunking with. Had I known, I would have just purchased two tickets or chosen a second class sleeper; for my own sanity. Then the train arriving to Chumphon was 1.5 hours late. We would have been closer to on time if the train had not stopped for an hour, 1 hour before arriving at Chumphon. So if you’re booking a connecting ferry, make sure to allow time for the train to be VERY late. We were supposed to arrive at 6am. My ferry was to leave at 8am. We arrived at 7:30 and I just barely made my ferry.

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

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 #167 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jun 1, 2021
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.

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.
