Passenger reviews out of total 75,177 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 ^_^

★★★★★ Aug 19, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Aug 19, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
First Class sleeper cars spacious and reasonably comfortable to sleep. Walls very thin so heard loud children for first few hours. Adjoining sleepers with open connecting door cost about $180 USD for four of us.
★★★★☆ Aug 19, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Everything very well arranged, though the lights are not switched off at night

★★★★★ Aug 17, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Much better than expected. Had no delays which was great, however I do know they are common
★★★★☆ Aug 16, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Getting the tickets was quick and easy, we booked them online in advance and collected them on the day of the trip very easily next to the station. The train was on time and comfortable. I loved travelling with my bf with this night train, clean enough and cozy (1st class). It has been an experience that we won't forget and the landscapes were awesome. Only two disappointments: meals way too expensive and the air conditioning definitely too cold...
★★★★★ Aug 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train à l'heure. Wagon extrêmement récent et d'une propreté impeccable. Personnel nombreux et prévenant. Voyage en wagons-lits deuxième classe très agréable.
★★★☆☆ Aug 16, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
It's quite bumpy on the train but the beds (2nd class) are fine and private. Service is great. Slept pretty well.

★★★★★ Aug 16, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great service and we slept well! Best backpackers transport from Bangkok to Chiang Mai ????????????????

Great train experience!
★★★★☆ Aug 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Was a nice trip. Unfortunally the lights where not switched off at night.
★★★☆☆ Aug 15, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Travelled on train 13 in a 1st class sleeper from Bangkok to Chiangmai. The carriage was old and quite dirty, but not bad once the beds were made up. The lady in charge of first class was very pushy, trying to sell drinks, dinner and breakfast. We had breakfast which was not very palatable and over-priced, would not have again. It was an experience but would advise future travellers to go for train number 10 which I believe is very modern and much cleaner.

★★★★☆ Aug 15, 2017 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
We took the daytime 2nd class seat option and it was comfortable and a very nice servise with the usual lovely thai staff been very helpful and considerate. Its a long jouney (11 hours) and quite jerky but a nice experience with great views expecialy 2nd half of journey. Booking and picking up tickets was smooth with go 2 asia the day b4 and although train departed 45 mins late it somehow arrived on time. There were lots of free snacks including cakes and coffee, a spicy curry and rice lunch (bit like an airplane) and we also had picked up loads of nice pastrys from the cofee place at station. On arrival the info desk very helpful and there are shared taxi 50 baht each person that drop people at various hotel, hostels and guesthouses.
★★☆☆☆ Aug 14, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Not very satisfied with the trip. We had a second class bed with airco, but it was still very warm at night. The train wasnt very clean and the beds were a bit small. At 7 o'clock we were waken by the staff trying to sell us coffee/tea (they present it like it's free, but you get charged afterwards). Its a pity the trip was not very good, because the last time I took this train (2 years ago) everything was perfect!
★★★★☆ Aug 14, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Nice experience with kids. Clean train (nr. 9) , polite personal, good service of 12goasia.
★★★★☆ Aug 14, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Aside from the extremely cold "airconditioning units on steriods", as I would describe it, I find the trip perfect. Left Bangkok on the dot at 18:10, and even arrived 2 minutes earlier than scheduled. The staff is very friendly (English is good), the bed is comfortable, and even though I am seated on te Upper Berth I had no problems whatsoever with the seating.
★★★★☆ Aug 13, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Aug 13, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Easy to collect the tickets from 12Go Asia. Train was clean, great way to travel from one place to another. The air con is good but they keep the lights on all night.
★★★☆☆ Aug 13, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Aug 13, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
It was awesome
★★★★★ Aug 13, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The second class sleeper car was good. They put your beds up when you ask,not when they want to as others suggest. They are also mindful of not waking people up if they are asleep, they wait until you wake up. Just watch how much you get charged for food and dont accept the drinks they keep trying to give you as they will charge you for them and they are expensive. The set mess were reasonably priced and very tasty.

★★★☆☆ Aug 11, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
Fenêtre cassée non ouvrable, pas d aeration sur les couchettes du bas blattes et puces pour nous tenir compagnie mais au delà de ça bel expedition pittoresque et expérience sympathique.petits déjeuners chers pour la thailande et les aliments fournis et attention à l'addition elle peut être surprenante 1000 bth au lieu de 600 vite corrigé heureusement
★★★★☆ Aug 11, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Left lights on all night which was quite annoying but other than that it was fab- very comfortable and friendly staff :)
★★★★★ Aug 11, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Totally amazing customer service. We were a family of 9 and our flight was delayed so the staff met us in front of the train station platform. We all got in with 3 mins to spare as the train took off to Chiang Mai. Thank you so much 12Go staff :)
★★★☆☆ Aug 9, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
A comfortable trip thanks to AC. A little too noisy and light on the aisle was too bright to sleep (didn't get summed at night) and good room unless you're over 1.80 m. Take some ear plugs and an eye mask and you'll be fine.

★★★☆☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Fun and clean, but the beds are made up very early so there is no place to sit.
★★★★☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Easy to book online and collect tickets. We were traveling in first class in train 13 which was quite old stock. Train left 45 mins late so arrived late in Chiang Mai. Cabin was okay but not happy when a cockroach ran across my bed sheet!! Lovely views out of the window in the early morning but think I will fly next time as found it hard to sleep and flights are quite cheap.
★★★★☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The airconditioning was a bit to cold and the beds a bit to hard
★★★★★ Aug 8, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Great experience, wonderful help at the office. Train trip was painless and luxurious.
★★★★☆ Aug 7, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
It was a Nice trip...but indeed as other travellers wrote , the breakfast was dissapointing and expensive...we should have skipped it. Nevertheless the train was right on time , and 12goasia organised it perfect so that we could leave from Ayutthaya instead of Bangkok.
★★★★☆ Aug 7, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Nice new train, at first freeze but when you are going to sleep just fine. There is a steward per train and a cleaning man, very well organised. A comfort trip!
★★★★★ Aug 7, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I dus sleep Well !
★★★★☆ Aug 7, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great modern train, very clean. Staff where quick at making up beds...lovely fresh clean linen. Bed not so comfy but ok, an extra pillow would of been nice to have. All in all great experience we'd definitely do again and recommend to friends
★★★★★ Aug 7, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great train experience and vers easy booking through 12go.Asia!
★★☆☆☆ Aug 7, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I would like the lights to be dimmed at night. Also, train staff is very unfriendly and moody.
★★★★★ Aug 7, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Train was clean, and we rested well on the trip. Highly recommend!
★★★☆☆ Aug 7, 2017 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Train departure was delayed 1h30 however spent most of that time chatting to old Thai man in Thaiglish. Free food & drinks served several times but I'd still recommend taking your own top ups. The train was clean & tidy & seats had plenty of leg room but the ride was rough & jolty to the point of not being able to sleep. I took the day train for the views however due to the dirty windows they were limited, I'd noticed another train having a wash down so perhaps if my train had been on time it too may have been wash down giving it clean windows. Overall an ok journey & experience but I won't be buying a return ticket.

Great air conditioning and lovely food and service. However, was 2 hrs late in arriving to destination.
★★☆☆☆ Aug 5, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
We wearnt happy with our trip becauseeven though we ordered 2adults and 1 child, we were given 3 adults. We asked to have our ticket changed to 1 child 2 adults and be discounted because they say if your child is under 1.50cm tall, but we were told to go to the ticket office in the station who then told us no we had to have it done at the 12go office by which time we couldn't go back otherwise we would miss our train. Total shambles by 12go asia. Very dissapointed. Also, why aren't the lights turned off or dimmed for sleeping hours on the train???

Excellent service. On the new #9 train. Had first class ticket, so got a private cabin. Excellent facilities, private toilets & shower with soaps for first class ticket holders. Wash basin in cabin, plenty sockets to charge phones. Shame you can't control the AC in each private cabin, however wasn't too cold. Beds aren't the comfiest but you are travelling in a train so to be expected. Food cart on bored not many options so take snacks. Private cabins allow you to control the lights. Staff are helpful. Train left on time and arrived on time also. Would recommend and do it again! Excellent views in the morning of the mountains.

★★★★★ Aug 3, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
When I booked my night train ticket I was sceptical about it, because I didn't know what to expect from it. I was surprised positively about the comfortabillity of the whole journey. I slept really well because of the airconditioned wagon. A very memorable moment in my thailand trip. Cheers!
