Nice trip, but to much noise on the train. Not any sound proofing whatsoever. Beside this, a nice trip.

View from train is superb. AC is very cold and noone does anything about it. No advance notice of food served on train nor no alcohol rules. Windows very dirty which spoiled the view. Shame when so easily corrected...???? ????

Everything was OK. All in all the trip was a good experience. Train was on time. Lights were on during all night and the train is very cold, but we knew it beforehand. I would recommend to book train #9 instead, which is the new one. Need to book in advance. It was sold out when we did the train booking. Very good experience with 12go.asia.

Pour les amoureux du train et les nostalgiques des voies métriques! Les voitures ont au moins 50 ans, et c’est pas si facile quand vous avez beaucoup de bagages, mais tout le monde est très accommodant. Les gares, surtout dans le nord, ont un joli aménagement paysagé .
