We have used the services of 12Go Asia before and highly recommend it. They save a lot of time and make it much easier to arrange your travel. I love the train journey. It is always slow and the train is always late but you can plan for that. The staff are helpful, the seating comfortable and the views wonderful.

van Regional 14pax, Nor Neane Transport (ณ.เณรการเดินรถ ), Sep 20, 2019
The trip with the van to Pran Buri took longer than expected and was a bit tiring, but the driver dropped me at the hotel with hardly any extra charge, nice. But very positive was the online support i received from 12go staff called Katy, who was exceptionally supportive and good, going out of her way to make sure that the initial confusion with the trip was resolved, calling the counter and driver at Ekkamai, and even after office hours checking if everything was alright. The trip itself maybe was a 2 or 3 star rating, but Katy certainly deserved a 5 star rating! A reason for me to use 12go.Asia again! Thanks Katy!
