I was pleased with my trip. Before the journey, my concerns were overcrowding, a sleepless night, having to set up the berth myself, and hunger. But my fears were unfounded. The train was uncrowded, I slept comfortably in a cozy berth, and a male attendant set up the berths himself. I was never hungry nor thirsty, because there were a lot of hawkers boarding the train from time to time to sell foodstuff. I now know that Thai Railways made sure it's passengers would be satisfied.

Comfortable chairs, friendly staff. We bought the tickets online and easily exchanged it for paper tickets at the bus station. We received a water bottle and a snack on the bus. However, the bus left late and arrived 30 minutes late in Songkhla. During the 15-hour journey we only made one food & toilet stop. Advice for future travelers: bring your own snacks and do not sit near the toilet (there is a toilet on the bus. Probably the reason why the bus does not stop so much). Our seats were right above the toilet and after 10 hours or so it does not smell so fresh. Also, they play the TV very loud on the bus.

No plugs on the train, the lights are on all night and very rocky ride so it's not easy to sleep but still the best way to get to Malaysia by land from Bangkok in one trip. Toilets were fine one Western style with toilet roll the whole trip and was in decent condition throughout the journey.

Bus very comfortable but left 2 hours late as driver reversed into another bus while leaving the terminal! Then we had to change buses at the end of the trip in Hat Yai, which slowed us down more. TV was fuzzy. But loads of leg room and comfy reclining seats.

The train left Hua Lamphong with 30min delay and arrived in Padang Besar with two hours delay! The track is obviously in bad condition, the wagon wobbled and crashed noisily, and the AC made the room so cold that it was practically impossible to sleep but all the clothes on. The toilets were unclean and there were no WC bowls, only holes in the floor, so relieving oneself was extremely difficult in the wobbling wagon. Next time we won't take the train, we'll fly!

Nice overnight trip. Bed was comfortable, staff was very helpful. I am glad I brought a jacket and eye shades. Nice way to travel. The train was late departing. And 12go was perfect. Great job
