Getting to Krabi

How to get to Krabi from Bangkok

What about

Krabi is a seaside province on the Western coast of Southern Thailand. The unique beauty of Krabi allures its visitors with limestone rock formations rising along the coastline; some of Thailand's finest beaches are found hidden along the bays.

Most of the province is made up of several national parks, and for the energetic traveller the rock climbing opportunities around Railay beach are some of the best in Asia. The province has over 80 islands famous for the diversity of activities and adventures they offer.

The picturesque coastline with its white sand beaches, coral reefs and lush vegetation make Krabi an essential beachside destination for anyone traveling through Thailand. It is also an important way point for accessing many of the surrounding islands via ferry.

Getting to Krabi

Traveling from Bangkok to Krabi overland is possible both by bus and by train. There is no railroad line in Krabi Town, meaning that you will need to make the final leg by bus. The combined train+bus journey takes a bit less that 15 hours in total; and the direct bus from the capital brings you to your destination in about 11 hours.

From Bangkok to Krabi by bus

Buses from Bangkok to Krabi leave from the Southern bus terminal, Sai Tai Mai. It is located on Phutthamonthon Sai Road in Thonburi district on the western side of the Chao Phraya River and is easily accessible by taxi. There are express and VIP24 buses of Lignite company, which cover the distance between the two cities in about 11 hours. An express bus ticket cost THB 648, while VIP24 is more expensive at THB 970. There is a morning bus at 7am, which is a worthy option for those who get off on the route, but to get to Krabi Town itself a night bus is a much more convenient option. Buses depart at 5.30pm, 7.10pm (2 buses), 7.20pm, 7.50pm (2 buses) and 8.40pm. There are also a number of private bus companies serving the same route from the Northern bus terminal in Bangkok, Morchit.

All buses provide snacks, air-conditioning and blankets and make several pit-spots along the route at large gas stations with convenience stores, cafes and toilets.

In Krabi buses from Bangkok arrive to either Krabi bus terminal near Talat Kao, about 4km north of Krabi, from where you can easily organise your onward journey to the islands, or to Nuea Khlong which lies 15km from Krabi by the Krabi international airport.

Getting from Bangkok to Krabi by train

There are no direct trains from Bangkok to Krabi, but it is possible to get package deals that include a train to Suratthani and a connecting bus to Krabi. Trains leave from Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok, easily accessible from the MRT subway. By far the most convenient train is the night one #85 departing at 7.30pm and arriving in Suratthani at 7.10am, but you have many other options, as well. You can choose the 1st or the 2nd class sleeper, both of which are air-conditioned and provide enough privacy and comfort for an overnight journey. The price is THB 1539 and THB 968 correspondingly.

Suratthani train station is located in the town of Phun Phin, some 15 km away. From there buses leave regularly both for Suratthani and other southern cities, including Krabi. If you book a joint train+bus ticket, you can catch a 7.30am bus to Krabi (THB 180, 3 hrs).

From Bangkok to Krabi by plane

Krabi is reportedly one of the most popular domestic destinations which sells first during special promotions period by any airline serving the route. But even without special discounts air tickets from Bangkok to Krabi are often amazingly affordable with prices starting from as low as THB1000 one-way per person. Travelling by plane reduces the time spend on the move considerably: from 12 hours to mere 1 hour 20 minutes.

Thai Lion Air, an associate of the namesake Indonesian carrier, flies to Krabi International Airport from the second airport in Bangkok, Don Mueang Airport. The company operates four flights from Bangkok to Krabi a day: at 6.45am, 11.5am, 3.20pm and 6pm. In the peak season it is hard to hit the lowest prices (THB1025) if you buy a couple of days in advance, but with a certain degree of flexibility you are in any case likely to find a deal under THB2000 with 15 kg of checked-in luggage and 7 kg of cabin luggage already included into the price.

In Bangkok Lion Air is based in Don Mueang International Airport to the north of the capital. To get there, use airport shuttle buses (routes A1 and A2). A1 starts from Morchit bus terminal and A2 originates at the Victory Monument, calling en route to Sanam Pao, Ari, Saphan Kwai and Morchit BTS stations (THB30). The latter is also served by A1 route. Travel time depends on traffic and is from 60 to 80 minutes. There are commuter trains between Hua Lamphong train station and Don Mueang airport, too. Trains take about 50 minutes to get from the railway station to the airport and are always a secure bet. Operating time is from 4.20am till 10.25pm.

Krabi International Airport lies 15 km to the northeast of Krabi Town. It serves over three million passengers per year and is waiting for expansion to increase its capacity to five millions soon. There are a lot seasonal international flights to Krabi airport from Europe and mainland China and an impressive number of daily flights between Krabi and Bangkok as well as some other domestic destinations including Koh Samui.

There is an air-conditioned airport shuttle bus plying the route between the airport and Krabi Town (THB90) and Ao Nang&Noppharat Thara (THB150). Normally these shuttle buses meet every arriving flight. If you miss it or do not want to use the service by some reason, take a songthaew which can be found along the main road to the airport. Taxis are also available (THB350).

Note that transfers to all possible tourist destinations throughout Krabi province are offered at the airport. Prices are usually reasonable: you will hardly find a better deal anywhere else even in Krabi Town, considering the time and money spent on getting to Krabi Town from the airport. If your final destination is Koh Lanta or Koh Phi Phi, do not hesitate to buy a ticket right on the spot.

Krabi beaches

It is not at all necessary to head to the islands to enjoy wonderful beaches of Krabi Province. Here are some ideas to have a great sun-and-sea adventure.

Ao Nang

The most developed of all Krabi beaches stretches out some 20km from Krabi Town. It may feel overpopulated, but it still preserves its postcard-like feel with limestone mountains looming as a backdrop and colourful long tail boats rolling on the waves. Nightlife and day restaurants are a stone’s throw away.

Noppharat Thara beach

A 3km long stretch of sand right by the side of Ao Nang remains relatively undeveloped. At low tide you can walk on sandy pathways in the company of millions of small crabs to the small islands close to the beach.

Railey beaches

Railey beach is an absolute must-see for every Krabi visitor. The two sides of the beach –the Western one and the Eastern one – are an ideal mix of crystal clear waters, pure sandy beaches and lush mountains.

Khlong Muang beach

This up-market side of Krabi is located some 20km further from Ao Nang. Khlong Muang resorts cater mostly for families and couples, and the setting is wonderful.

Tubkaeak beach

A place to hide away from it all. Long, clean and peaceful beach is complemented with breathtaking views of Koh Hong islands. It offers beautiful sunsets, too.

Your onward journey from Krabi

The whole Krabi Province is a natural wonder of limestone rock formations, transparent streams and dense mangroves, and Krabi Town is a quirky little town to savour the taste of provincial life of the South. It is also a convenient starting point for your journey to Phi-Phi (from two to 4 boats per day depending on the season; 1½ hrs), Koh Lanta (one boat per day from November to May, two hours); and Railey Beach (long tail boats leave throughout the day, 45 minutes). The same destinations are also served from nearby Ao Nang, where you can as well catch a boat to Phuket (4 hours) or Koh Yao islands (45 minutes).

Getting around in Krabi

Krabi Town itself is relatively easy to explore on foot. But for longer trips (e.g. Wat Tham Suea or Tha Pom) your own transport is a wise option giving you much more freedom compared to package tours from agencies.

Motorbikes and Scooters are the most convenient way to get around. Many guesthouses both in Krabi Town and Ao Nang offer quite a good fleet, which sometimes includes even the bigger ‘farang bikes’ (Honda PCX). Prices range from THB 150 to THB 300 per day depending on the model you choose. Note that some of the famous Krabi attractions are about 40km away from the city, and if you are not much of a motorbike rider, you may prefer to rent a car (THB 1500- THB 1800).

Bicycle is a good choice for getting acquainted with the city. Find them in many Krabi guesthouses (THB 50-THB120).

Songthaews travel between Krabi Town, the airport, bus terminal and nearby beaches. Prices vary depending on the destination and are from THB 50 to THB 100 for a seat in a shared vehicle. If you want the whole truck for yourself, agree on the price before you get on board.

Passenger reviews out of total 31,251 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 ^_^

★★★★★ Feb 28, 2017 (bus VIP24, Lignite) :
Was very comfortable and quick.
★★★★★ Feb 28, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Feb 27, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
Kind of a long trip ,do not expect the beds and facilities you find in Europe, but ok for Thailand
★★★★☆ Feb 25, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The overnight train was a really fun experience and would highly recommend. The bed was comfy but the train wasn't marked well so you had to ask to make sure you were in the right place/car on the train because they do not check your tickets until after it takes off so that was weird because you could've easily been on the wrong train and wouldn't have known it until later.
★★★★★ Feb 25, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Everything worked first class
★★★★☆ Feb 24, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
All fine. We had a nice journey. Thank you for the great support!
★★★★★ Feb 24, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Feb 24, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
The service around booking and picking up the tickets was absolutely great. The Pick up office in Bangkok had a super friendly and helpfullstaff and without a doubt I would use their service again. The train however is a different story; it is an experience we chose to have rather than a saving money thing. And an experience it was.. toilets smelled and looked worse than on a 3 day festival. Our first class cabin was ok, it looked a bit dirty but no animals/bugs and the airco worked. So if you look for an experience without too much sleep, book 1st class because the 2nd class is a whole other story!
★★★★☆ Feb 23, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Good trip, bed was a little tight for me (1.87). Service good. Overall experience good. Would recommend it!
★★★★★ Feb 21, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The staff at the 12go office was friendly, the train departed and arrived on time. It was clean and looked safe.
★★★★★ Feb 21, 2017 (train #167 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Everything arranged as promished. Even a berth with electicity as requested!

★★★★★ Feb 17, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Feb 17, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
Luxury 12 hour ride. Lots of space for your legs (even if you are 180 cm tall, ladies) and comfortable seats. We got a sweet filled bun with soya milk and a bottle of water for free. There was also packed a wet napkin. Air conditioning runned all night but there were available blankets. In the morning, the staff served us hot coffee. Also for free. Five-star experience.
★★★★★ Feb 17, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Good expérience ! WE slept a lot. It'ts very old...but very confortable and very clean .
★★★☆☆ Feb 17, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Feb 16, 2017 (bus VIP24, Lignite) :
Extremely comfortable bus. Only downside is that TV (which you have in the seat in front of you) has everything sincronised on Thai, and has Thai subtitles. So if you don't understand Thai it's unusable. But everything else is perfect. You get to experience high standard transportation in Thai style.
★★★★★ Feb 15, 2017 (train #167 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
Everything ok. Friendly managment. Nice trip
★★★★★ Feb 14, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
All went just fine. I picked up my ticket in Bangkok the day before the trip. The office was easy to find and ig staying along Sukhumvit str. there is no need for a taxi to drive you to the train station, just take the underground mrt. I wil use 12go.asia again
★★★★☆ Feb 14, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Everything was Nice :) The Train was on time and The sleeping beds where really nice. Bring warm clothes!!!! It gets cold as f*** at night :)
★★★★☆ Feb 13, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Good service in general. Train shoul improve toilet cleaning. Lights remain on during the night.
★★★★★ Feb 12, 2017 (bus VIP24, Lignite) :
Ran on time, snacks ok, not used to sleeping on a coach but slept ok, seat comfortable, adjustable and vibrating. Would use it again.
★★★★★ Feb 11, 2017 (train #31 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Feb 10, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air) :
Perfect trip! Perfect music on the plane!
★★★☆☆ Feb 9, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Food was expensive and not great. Cabin was filthy and had cockroaches. "Express train" stopped constantly making it impossible to sleep. Most of the trek was in the dark so not even good scenery. For the same price you could fly in 1/10th the time.
★★★★★ Feb 9, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Feb 9, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Travelled in 2nd class sleeping wagon with ac, but for some reason where I was sleeping there was no ac which made the experience a bit unpleasant.
★★★☆☆ Feb 9, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite)
★★★★★ Feb 7, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The trip by 12go Asia was perfectly organised!
★★★★☆ Feb 7, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Great service in booking our tickets online. Pick up office in Bangkok had super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will definitely use again!
★★★☆☆ Feb 6, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
You get what you pay for on this one . Old and squeaky bus but it left on time and got in reasonably close to the estimated time. Friendly attendant and a tarro /soy milk +a bottle of water provided. I would pay extra for the nicer option on this long of trip if you have the budget if it this gets you there and is relatively painless.
★★★★★ Feb 6, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Excellent service. 12goAsia service is amazing.
★★★★★ Feb 6, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Excellent service and easy travel
★★★★★ Feb 6, 2017 (train #83 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Really easy to find office to pick up on tickets. Staff was super helpful.
★★★★☆ Feb 4, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air) :
There was a slight taking off. Other than that great srvice.
★★★☆☆ Feb 3, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Everything went according to the schedule and was mostly as promised. The only thing that was bad is the fact that Lomprayah agency (possibly a parter on 12 go Asia) at Suratthani train station offered me a transfer service at Koh Samui to my accomodation and that this would be our last chance to get it for 200 bat. Of course being tired from the trip and not willing to haggle with local taxis i accepted. Once i got on the catamaran the same service from the same agency cost 150 bat. That is very unprofessional so either employees where adding on the price or this is an agency scam. Either way 50 bat is not much but its a matter of principle. It is really a small amount to risk reputation and i believe the agency already added enough surcharge on real value of train tickets and combined bus ferry ticket. It wouldnt hurt to be nicer to your clients. Nevertheless would reccommend it with precaution what you purchase on top of the deal.

Impeccable service with commentary provided to the booking well followed. Would use them again for long distance bookings in Thailand.
★★★★★ Jan 31, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Всё отлично! Отправление и прибытие вовремя. Комфортно, широкая полка, бельё застилает проводник. В туалете при желании и наличии сноровки можно ополоснуться. Предлагают относительно недорогое питание.
★★★★★ Jan 31, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
Travelled in both air con (18 Dec) and fan (30 Jan) coaches. Air-con coach is not as cold as some reviews had put it. With the provided blanket, you can have good comfortable sleep. Fan coach can be very warm and stuffy before it move off. With open windows along the way, it can be noisy and breezy - too much for a good sleep if you are a light sleeper. Bed is clean and they set up early so you can rest (within an hour for air-con coach and 2 hours for fan coach). On arrival of your station, the coach master will wake you up - no worry of missing your station. Toilet on board is clean and well equipped - you can even take a shower inside. There are also basic outside for wash up - reliefing congestion during peak morning hours. If you are connecting to a ferry, the bus operator that brings you to the ferry terminal will be waiting at the station exit and direct you to the appropriate counter - very convenient.

Everything went very smoothly. Train clean and on time. AC was quite cold so warm clothes were needed. Personnel friendly.
★★★☆☆ Jan 29, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
the train was good but it kept stopping for no reason, which made us 1 hour and a half late and miss the bus. We didn't have to pay any extra for the second bus that the company provided but it isn't really nice for a trip that should last 14h in total to last more than 20 (bangkok-phuket) - i am still at the bus while writing this.
★★★☆☆ Jan 29, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train was late so missed bus connection... new bus provided makes frequent stops and is putting us in Phuket 6 hr later than scheduled.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 29, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
Bangkok southern terminal hard to get to as it comes up differently on imaps, gmail and uber. We almost missed our trip after being driven to the wrong terminal (on the right road). We got on the bus and then had to get off on the side of a four lane highway and wait 40 minutes late at night for another bus to come which was very frustrating. Other than those things it was fine.

★★★☆☆ Jan 28, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
12Go does their marketing to make it look like certain routes are going to fill up / sell out so you buy your ticket through them. So I bought mine ahead of time. In reality, we got there and there were a ton of seats on the train left. Paid their stupid $14 online booking fee for nothing. Would not use again. **Train ride was fine, but it left an hour late.

★★★★☆ Jan 26, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
The sleeper was comfortable and the staff all very nice, friendly and professional. I enjoyed the journey very much and it was lovely to have sheets and a cover on the bed as well as dinner service. The only issue I had was some cockroaches in the carriage which made me think it could have been cleaner but it didn't spoil the trip. We arrived on time, which was great. 12goasia provided a fantastic service in acquiring the tickets for me.
★★★★★ Jan 26, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Comfy bed and great way to get to the next destination. Train left late with no explanation. I wasn't totally sure I was on the right train until after we'd left and the ticket was checked. Tickets were easy to purchase and pick up and staff were super helpful.

Amazing trip. On time, comfortable chairs with lots of leg room, very nice, polite and helpful staff. You even got snacks and drinks. Would definitely take this bus again.
★★★★☆ Jan 17, 2017 (bus VIP24, Lignite) :
Ran on time. Seats were comfortable, reclined and had a massage function. Staff were helpful and friendly. Water, cola, soy milk and coffee provided. Wifi would have been a bonus but slept most of the way. Toilet was bearable.

★★★☆☆ Jan 15, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
2nd class with fans was pretty noisey and bumpy. 2nd class AC carriage was more modern and I wonder if it was quieter and smoother. Bear in mind cheaper carriages might contain younger, more exhuberant travellers. Mind did. He was tiresome.
★★★★★ Jan 14, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Excellent as usual.
★★★☆☆ Jan 14, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train environment itself was cool and comfortable, however there were cockroaches crawling around and I could not sleep because of it. I narrowly missed the flooding, thankfully. Staff were kind and helpful.

Everything went very smoothly from picking up the tickets to the actual trip - train, ferry and bus were mostly on time and all very comfortable - my only criticism would be the toilets on the train - they could be cleaner. Great system which I will definately use again!!

★★★☆☆ Jan 5, 2017 (train #83 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Great app and smooth service from 12go. Picked up tickets opposite station with zero fuss or waiting. Train was not so great - cabin was dated, with cold air vents the could not be closed, even by the train staff. We resorted to stuffing with toilet paper to reduce the draught. Train was very noisy and the light in the corridor was left on all night, which made for an uncomfortable night's rest and hardly any sleep. OK for some privacy - although the door to the adjoining cabin doesn't close tightly and you can hear everything - but that's about it. No option of meal either, and which was advertised. Not worth paying double. Would be lower than three stars if it weren't for the great 12go service and the friendly attendant who made up the beds and gave us a wake up call 10 mins before our stop.
★★★★☆ Jan 5, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Very easy and efficient booking with this service - easy to find to pick up tickets and transfers to buses with provided vouchers worked well even when train was a little late and we missed connections. Sleeper train very comfy.
★★★★★ Jan 4, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great service...offices opposite main entrance of train station...when coming from the metro you need to through the station and go out of the door beside the left luggage. You will see rhe building in front of you .

★★★★☆ Jan 3, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
Pleasant bus ride. Budget friendly. Wished I'd had more info on how many stops we were making - I thought every time it was my stop...
★★★★☆ Jan 2, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
The bus turned up just before it was due to leave, they don't really give you much info about when the bus is arriving or the schedule, you just get ushered onto the bus as quickly as possible then off. All in all the journey was much better than I expected, lots of leg room, chairs recline quite far and have a foot rest. They provide a blanket, bottle of water and some biscuits. There's a toilet on board but I didn't use it. They played Tarzan for the beginning of the journey which is dubbed in Thai, bit annoying if you don't want to watch it but they turn the TV off when it's finished. You stop after 3 hours then continue through the night.

Cheap, nice and easy ticket pick up
★★★☆☆ Jan 2, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
Although I actually enjoyed 2nd class fan more than 2nd class AC (which I found way too cold) the train was clearly much older than the one I went up to Chiang Mai with. Beds narrower, less comfortable, no toilet paper or tissues at the sinks... just good to be aware that trains can be very different although seemingly similar when you book them!
★★★★☆ Jan 2, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
Ticket office was great service and the train was very well organised including sleeping bedding etc. The only thing was the food on the train. absolutely awful and twice the price it should be. Basically 3 bowls of slop for 210 Bahts. Should have bought snacks and drinks from 7-11.
★★★★☆ Jan 1, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
You get what you pay for here folks. Its hands down the most cost effective method to go clear across the country. Its very noisy, couple stops but staff are indeed great about waking you up before your stops, offering food etc. My one and only complaint is that we bought first class sleepers 8 months in advance. 2 months before our trip, we were downgraded to second class with fan (we were not offered second class with AC which is an option folks). As it turns out, it was still ok and we received a partial refund on our tickets. That said, it raised some red flags as we made friends with some of the people who got first class tickets who bought only 3 months in advance. This means that once this company has your ticket in hand, they start sending out emails to the people who baught far in advance and paid less for the ticket in hopes you'll accept a down grade at which point, your first class ticket is given to the person who paid the most...more profit for them. They use the fact that they have to physically purchas and "confirm" your ticket to their advantage.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 1, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
THEY SAID THAT HE TRAIN WAS FULL!!! THERE WERE COMPLETE CHARAGES EMPTY. I HAD BOOKED TWO LOWER BIRTH SEATS/BEDS. THESE WERE NOT ALLOCATED OR GIVEN ON REQUEST. FURTHER MORE THE STAFF THEN PROCEEDED TO MAKE UP THE BEDS FRO THEM SELFS.TO SLEEP ON AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FAIR PAYING PASSENGERS???? I HAVE TRAVEL THIS TRAIN ON NEW YEARS EVE TWICE NO-BLACK AND WHITE BAD THIS TIME. (ALSO IT WAS AN HOUR LATE)!. SO THAT'S THAILAND RAIL LOSS ON THE TRAINS & THAILANDS GAIN ON THE PLAINS
★★★★★ Jan 1, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I tried to book the train tickets from Bangkok to Surat Thani 60 days in advance but all tickets gone in 10 minutes after opening time for sale. The only option was left to go via travel agency. The 12Go Asia were efficient and helpful. I was glad to get tickets for a small commission. The train journey was okay and comfortable enough. The only reservation was the air conditioner was too cold, so bring extra layers.
