Passenger reviews out of total 42,422 passengers who 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 while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Train was disgusting, toilets filthy, the lady on cabin 3 was so rude! Ordering people to move whilst she made beds, so ignorant. Also the food is flat cold as they leave it waiting on the counter for at least 15 minutes before giving out to passengers. Will never travel on train 14 again!

12goAsia was extremely organized and easy to work with. The trip going to Chiang Mia on 2nd class was nice. Pleasantly surprised there was so much food free. On the way back on the 2nd class sleeper it was ok. No food included which should be specifically stated on all literature. All the trains are very dated. If you are used to high standards and 5 star quality accommodations and you can't be open and flexible this is not the option for you. The toilet and other accommodations are not up to western standards. With all that said, with an adventurous spirit and a go with the flow attitude it's a great way to go to Chiang Mai and see the landscape. I'll probably fly next time - it's just a looooonng trip by train.

Good way to travel and save on accommodation. Nice view too. The train wasn't what I expected for 1st class and was old and basic. We ordered food for the 1st journey but didn't for the 2nd. Overpriced, basic and and an attempt was made to overcharge too. Staff were friendly and trains were on time. Beware of the toilets and the shower/toilet. No-one in the right mind would use unless an emergency and I've seen some toilets in Thailand. The 1 to go service was excellent. Got a partial refund and free water. Couldn't be easier and they were no more expensive than buying direct.

Returning to Bangkok was not as great as going to Chiang Mai. The first class car was the first behind the engine car which caused the exhaust fumes to blow into our cabin the entire night. The tracks seem to be rougher compared to the ones going north. Otherwise it was an enjoyable trip. Grab food before getting on the train and you’ll be fine

Do it for the experience wether it's 1st class or 2nd class. If you can get 1st class on the new trains it's well worth the little extra. Free Wi-Fi in the first class only works near towns otherwise no signal. Prepare for the train to possibly be late. Ours was 4hrs late arriving into Bangkok but it was good to see the countryside in the daylight. Meals were expensive compared to other places in thailand but that's what you would expect anywhere in the world. Beds were firm but I slept ok for being a big guy at 6foot tall and 110kgs. New train clean and tidy, we took number 10 train.

train #8 Class II AC, Thai Railways
★★★★☆
We travelled on the number 8 train from Chaing Mai to Bangkok during the day. The train was clean and comfortable, and uncrowded till we got further down the track, where lots more people got on. I thought it was express, but not so, as it makes many stops on the way. Were allocated 41&42 in car 2, which fronted the bins, and so there was no tray to use in front. That made the comfort level drop to a 2. Make sure if you book this train, that you get seats with the tray in the seat back in front of you. There was adequate food and drinks served, and cleaner went through a couple of times. Remember to have a jumper with you, as the aircon gets quite cold. It would have been a lot better if the lady announced the stations in English, and not just Thai, as we had no idea what she was saying. It was good to have a couple od small snacks and bottle of water as well. The ticket pickup was a breeze at Bossotel. I was a bit disappointed that the booking fees are so expensive, which doubled the cost of the fare. I don't know if you could just buy a ticket on the day or not. We were half hour late, but that did not cause a great deal of trouble, but if you are organising a pick up in Bangkok, tell them to be prepared for a late arrival.

train #52 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways
★★★★☆
I went with the lower level fan car based on suggestions from reviews. The lower level, in my opinion is a must. That’s bc the upper level doesn’t have the window. While the fan wasn’t unbearable, I think I would have preferred the AC. It got hot, and once the bed is folded down, the curtain blocks the fan (even though you still have the open window). Overall, it was a great trip! The food was surprisingly awesome too!

12Go Asia were excellent. It was a simple, snoooth, and stress-free process to get our tickets, well supported by their systems and staff when we had queries. The train itself had its usual Thai people trying to rip you off while pretending to serve you - even in First Class (be careful of the meals guy). But 12Go were professional and come highly recommended.

A cool way to get between the two cities. The first class cabin was exactly as described, new and clean, with plenty of space for two people. The beds are quite hard and the train is fairly loud and bumpy throughout the night, so don’t expect the best night’s sleep of your life. But overall I would recommend it, a great experience.

Brian Quinn summed it up the way I would. The only difference was that we did not see cockroaches, The first class lounge in Chang Mai was very comfortable and worth using prior to getting on the train if you arrived a few hours early. The seats are so comfortable that it is easy to fall asleep. The service in first class to and from Chiang Mai was always extremely pleasant. After spending 35 years in the military it was still hard for me to sleep both ways. The tracks are not the smoothest. We bought food using their train room service to Chang Mai but decided to buy our own food at the local stores in Chiang Mai for the return trip. Dress warmly for sleeping.

Modern train, comfy beds, staff were kind of rude on the train but that’s not so much an issue regarding the train. Good air con, food was questionable yet relatively expensive and arrival time was only slightly later than expected. Would recommend for those wanting to experience Thai life and not deal with the hassle of airports.

The only reason I’m not giving this five stars is because 12goAsia messed up our booking and did not put our family together but instead booked two rooms on opposite ends of the car. When I walked back to tell them they said nothing they could do so went to train station ticket counter. Luckily they had two adjoining rooms available and moved us. It was clear in our booking request and was a miss by 12GoAsia. Would still use them again but would follow up and make sure they confirmed our exact seat assignment after booking

It’s all about the experiences in life and you’ll get one on this train trip. The first glass was great, beds were fine but I didn’t really sleep very well myself. The A/C is on the entire trip which does get cold, so make sure you have a sweatshirt or something warm to ware during the night. The blanket they give is like a large towel, not that warm but does the job. We did see cockroaches around the train but none in our room. You can board the train about 30-40min of departure, just so people know know this in case you get to the terminal early. Get some food and drinks before you get on, it’s cheaper and the choices on the train are just snacks not actual meals. Overall, good trip, fun experiences!

Nice cabins but better if we could book 2 (4 beds) cabins. I was only advised when we collected tickets 2 & 4 yr old were not allowed own beds even though we were prepared to pay full price. Sharing is no fun in such cramped beds and the lack of luggage space doesn't help. The train needs a daily bug spray as we were accompanied by roaches in the room. Otherwise journey was fine and would do it again. Cheaper than flying and more fun.

Travelled in a first class cabin. Train was an hour late, and most of the night the air-conditioning was so cold and blowing directly on the top bunk it was really uncomfortAble we could not sleep. The whole carriage stank of urine and even though the blankets came from a sealed bag, it had dirty marks on them. There were such limited number of first class cabins we could not travel on the days we wanted to travel on. More first class carriagea should be added to the train.

I read everywhere that sleeper with fan would be better than AC considering the AC is much too cold. Now experiencing only a fan, I would have preferred the AC to make sure I wasn’t dying of heat. The actual service/customer service was fantastic, but unless you are guaranteed a lower berth for travel (so you have a window) the upper berth is much too hot to sleep. You cannot close the curtains or you will be loosing your only source of air/cooling.

Apart from that a lovely and memorable trip.

12gotravel did what they said when they said they would. Ordered 1st class double cabin 120 days out and received the ticket voucher 60 days out (as the tickets came on sale). Pick up across the street from station was easy. 5 stars for them. About the train/cabin. As others have mentioned, it's a small cabin, with no way to adjust temp. Close the vent and request 2 blankets each. Don't forget to ask for towels. Although the bed is downright hard, it's a very civilized way to travel. One or two stops before the terminal in Bangkok you will stop at DMG. Didn't realize that or we would have timed our flight out from there. Whatever you do, don't get the food on the train. It's awful. And I do mean awful. Bring your own. Have fun!

Train is clean and comfortable. Traveled 2nd class sleeper.

Very efficient and easy transaction with 12GoAsia and tickets easy to collect from the station next to the hotel. Used the newer train type, booking two interconnecting 1st class compartments when travelling with our kids. Air conditioning is a bit super-powered and not adjustable so keep that in mind. Kids slept really well, adults slept OK! Don't rely on train food, it's ok but not great. Big bonus was a lovely hot shower after a hot day exploring Chiang Mai!

A good way to travel from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. My wife and I had a private compartment. When we boarded at 16:30 it was set up as a bench seat. There was plenty of room for our rucksacks and other bags. The hostess was lovely and took our orders for dinner and breakfast. We chose to have dinner at seven o’clock. It was ok. Not very hot but tasty and plenty of it. And coffee, juice and water and fruit. We chose from a choice of four set meals. It was 1400 Baht for two dinners and two breakfasts which we thought was expensive. But it’s all part of the experience. After dinner another attendant came and made up the beds and we slept ok. Reports that the air con is a bit chilly are not exaggerated! We needed the blankets they provided. We were woken at about 5:30 and the attendant put the bunks back to a bench seat and the lady brought our breakfasts. Toast sausage and eggs and coffee. Then we got off the train in Crazy Bangkok ready for a day of exploring.
