Passenger reviews out of total 111,242 passengers 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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★★ Oct 18, 2017 (train #9 Class II Ladies Only, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Oct 18, 2017 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Really enjoyed the trip - a relaxing way to spend the day and see the country. Food not to my taste (chilli mackerel and rice) but appreciates the gesture.
★★★★★ Oct 18, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air) :
It was a very pleasant experience and I will continue to book more trips
★★★★☆ Oct 18, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
My wife and I had a first class cabin, which was great for privacy. We were on train 13, which is showing signs of age, however, we both had a decent night sleep. The staff were excellent. Food was very average and quite expensive, so bring your food/snacks with you. The last couple of hours takes you through lovely country side and overall, we were happy that we chose the train over yet another flight!
★★★★★ Oct 18, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
2nd class was excellent as well as being quite a bit cheaper than 1st! Next carriage had a really good disabled access toilet and a wheelchair fixed to the wall. Excellent service from 12Go Asia and Thai Railways.
★★★★☆ Oct 18, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
BKK to Chiang mai #9 Train is amazing, tried for 1st class but was filled up early so definitely plan ahead. 2nd class though is great. Had a super clean area, great service, comfortable bed and they wake you up when they are approaching Chiang mai. Only complaint and its a small one, I wish they dimmed the lights on the train when it came to sleeping as it is still bright even when you close your curtain. Also wish they had two power outlets for the seats. I was fortunate because it was just me in my section but I could see this being annoying when you have someone else trying to charge their phone. Still Highly recommended though.
★★★★☆ Oct 17, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
It was cold in the train But everything was fine!
★★★☆☆ Oct 17, 2017 (bus Express, Budsarakham Tour) :
It was really cold, and there were no blankets
★★★★★ Oct 17, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Very Good service at 12go asia Office in Bangkok: people in the Office were friendly and helpful. Nighttrain was a Nice way to travel to Chiang Mai, But make sure you bring an eye mask for sleeping, because the lights in the train are shining the whole trip.
★★★★★ Oct 17, 2017 (bus VIP20, Sombat Tour)
★★★★★ Oct 17, 2017 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Lovely scenic journey. Comfortable, AC, and free meals and snacks! What’s not to like?
★★★★★ Oct 17, 2017 (bus VIP24, Bangkok Busline) :
Amazing service - won't ever be buying tickets the "classic" way anymore - this service is beyond convenient and I will be highly recommending it to my friends
★★★★★ Oct 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Awesome! Very clean and comfortable
★★★★★ Oct 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
This was my best sleeper train experience ever! Ok...maybe it was my first ...but it was still the best! The agency did its job well and their communication is excellent. The #9 train to Chiangmai Mei is the one you want...second class is the best. And you save a nights rent.
★★★★★ Oct 16, 2017 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
It was nice ride highly recommended
★★★★☆ Oct 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Oct 16, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The ticket service is good. The train is good, comfy enough and clean. The ac was on too cold though, how can one adjust to the hot thai climate this way? Staff both in office and on train is very friendly and helpful.
★★★★☆ Oct 16, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Oct 16, 2017 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
The train was good, but I want to give a big shout out to the customer service at 12Asia! They emailed me to say my trip was outside their normal office hours and my ticket would be at their building and the security guard could help me. It went off without a hitch. Awesome. I will use them again!
★★★★☆ Oct 15, 2017 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline)

Nice comfortable way of traveling
★★★★★ Oct 15, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Booking was easy. Picking up the tix was easy. The train was clean and efficient. Two issues: not turning off the lights at night and gross plastic-encased food.
★★★★☆ Oct 15, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :

★★★★☆ Oct 15, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)

★★★★☆ Oct 14, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Fantastic experience! Had a really good trip. Great way to travel between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. I just wouldn’t eat the food onboard and be wary of the toilets and protect your belongings.
★★★★☆ Oct 14, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Oct 14, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
everything was great! no problem with picking up the tickets, really nice staff working at the office :) the train arrived on time, clean, comfy bed and enough privacy due to the curtains... will definitely recommend as a new experience and a good alternative to staying at bangkok overnight

★★★★☆ Oct 11, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Amazingly clean train. I had no issues booking online or collecting my ticket. The only problem is they leave bright lights on in the train all night. I just wish the lights could have been switched off for a few hours to allow everyone to sleep more comfortably.
★★★★☆ Oct 10, 2017 (train #7 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
It was really cold on the train, and the seats were quite uncomfortable when sitting down for approx 12 hours but the service with food included was very nice, even though it didn't personally bring me joy since I'm vegetarian and it was only chicken and rice, but drinks and everything was included so that is very nice! The staff at the office was really friendly!!
★★★★★ Oct 10, 2017 (bus VIP, New Viriya) :
Good value for money and instructions easy to follow to pick up tickets.

★★★★☆ Oct 10, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Left on time, arrived on time, linen good, comfortable trip, what more can we say
★★★☆☆ Oct 10, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
An old and dirty train. The smoke from people smoking in the bathrooms came through the air conditioning vents during the night. However, nice to be able to lie down for the night and when there was a problem with the train, a bus was provided to finish the journey to Chiang Mai.
★★★★★ Oct 10, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Sold as advertised. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Booking safe, collected the tickets and boarded train with ease, stress free journey.
★★★★★ Oct 10, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
12goAsia was super easy to deal with and really made the trip a breeze! I'll definitely be using them again! Khob khun kha!
★★★★☆ Oct 10, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The service, quality and cleanliness of the train was fantastic. However I did expect that at some point during the night the bright fluorescent lights would be dimmed or replaced with a softer light. Was unable to sleep well as a result. If this was rectified I would certainly travel this way again
★★★★★ Oct 10, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :

★★★★★ Oct 8, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Extremely easy to get my ticket. They allowed me to book my ticket well in advance to when they would actually be sold. Highly recommend and would use 12Go again.
★★☆☆☆ Oct 8, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Der Nachtzug hatte einen Unfall und so mussten wir in einem Reisebus 4 std fahren. Dessen Klimaanlage war wie die Sitze ziemlich runtergekommen... Mit über 4 Stunden Verspätung sind wir nun trotzdem sicher und etwas verschwitzt in Chiang Mai angekommen. 12Go Asia ist trotzdem sehr zu empfehlen. ✌????

★★★★★ Oct 6, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Very quick with emails to sort out trains, very helpful!
★★★☆☆ Oct 6, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
What ought to have been a great trip, was spoilt by a few easy to fix things. Two of the things I most enjoy about Thailand is the friendliness and cleanliness where it counts. Sadly the (Hua Lamphong) above ground station smelt of urine and was filthy. Totally unlike all the othe Metro, BTS Skytrain stations throughout Bangkok. Secondly the attendant/guard for the first class sleeper carriage was lazy, rude and even swore at my 57 year old wife when asked to convert the sleeper compartment into its night time bed arrangement. Within 45 minutes of departure from Bangkok, he covered his “office” window with black plastic so he could not be seen, locked his door and went to sleep until 30 minutes before arrival in Chiang Mia. His rudeness caused such distress that it ruined any pleasant experience we had hoped to gleam from the trip. It’s far cheaper and more comfortable to fly. Travelling by train should be to experience the countryside and locals. I certainly wouldn’t recommend anyone to travel in a first class sleeper on train 9 to Chiang Mia. The train itself was clean and it should have been a great trip.
★★★★☆ Oct 6, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Good train ride. I had the upper bed, it was good but the lower bed is a little more spacious.
★★★★☆ Oct 5, 2017 (train #13 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
An old train but it was comfortable and clean. You get dinner and breakfast which you have to pay for but is cheap and they make the bed up for you too :)
★★★☆☆ Oct 5, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
On the upper berth I was very cold - the air conditioner was very strong and cold. But on the other hand the bed was comfortable and large.
★★★★☆ Oct 5, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Good service.

Difficult to navigate as no one speaks English. It was misleading when booking. I would have booked with another company if I knew this was the case. Bus clean. Snacks provided
★★★★★ Oct 5, 2017 (train #9 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
We traveled as a group of 6 people including children. We couldn’t fault 12Go.Asia’s service. So simple to use with clear and easy to understand communications. I will (and have already) recommend their service. The sleeper trains cabins were very clean and comfortable. The restaurant was more of a cafe style with microwave style food. Perhaps having the beds run parallel to the train tracks would alleviate travel sickness.
★★★★★ Oct 5, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Clean, pleasant trip. Rail Staff very polite and helpful.
★★★★★ Oct 4, 2017 (train #9 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Excellent service and great value!
★★★★☆ Oct 4, 2017 (bus VIP27, Sombat Tour) :
Definitely much better than expected! The only thing to improve is the temperature. It felt like a fridge!
★★★★☆ Oct 4, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Oct 4, 2017 (train #13 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Very helpful, super quick answers, good organized and good english.
★★★★★ Oct 3, 2017 (bus Express, Bangkok Busline) :
Plenty of leg room, the chairs lean back all the way, and there are snacks and water!
★★★★★ Oct 3, 2017 (train #51 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The ticket ended up costing less than the online price estimate. 12Go gave 90 baht cash back when I picked up the ticket!
