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 #1016 1st Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways
★★★★★
We were very satisfied with the service provided by 12 Go Asia and their subagent(s) in Sri Lanka. Booking in advance a train trip from Ella to Colombo is not easy from overseas (Denmark), but the Man in Seat 61 mentioned 12 Asia Go, so we tried this, and all ended well. Our ticket was delivered by hand at our hotel in Kandy (we had paid 10 usd for this extra service, as we weren’t going to Colombo). The reservation was correct, the train on time, and we enjoyed the spectacular scenery from the highlands down to the coast.

train #1046 First Class Sleeper , Sri Lanka Railways
★★☆☆☆
Took the Night Mail sleeper train, 1st class berth from Badulla to Colombo Fort. You can take this train for the experience, but not for a good night's sleep. The train rattles and shakes the whole way. Also try not to use the washroom unless in a dire emergency, they're disgusting. Don't plan tight connections in Colombo either, this train arrived 2.5 hours behind schedule.
