Absolutely no problem. Great service and unbelievably cheap in price. BKK to Nakhon Ratchasima was only $259 baht (less than $10/USD) with taxes included. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Had A/C and Wi-Fi. Definitely would recommend and will use again.

12go did a great job of getting me a very good seat with space for my large bag in front of me. A lot of confusion at the station about which train. Also train arrived early at Nakhon Ratchasima and no announcement so a bit of a panicked rush to get off. Otherwise a good journey with pretty comfortable seats in 2nd class with AC.

I did not get what i paid for at 12GO. I booked a carriage seat with an aircon, but I got an fan carriage seat. The aircon seat is more expensove than the fan seat.
