The car went extremely smoothly. The staff is very lovely, enthusiastically supporting whenever passengers need anything. Especially I ride a car around noon, so I am served a lot of food. I was impressed by Nakhonchaiair's service. ♥️

Safe and comfortable travel, although we had to wait for late passengers in KK; overall a great experience.

Apart from the train being full it was a great experience, you see parts of the country you don’t see when flying

Hello, thank you for booking the tickets and sending them to me. I am not satisfied with the train journey because I assumed that I would have the cabin just for myself. I booked a first class sleeper so that I could enjoy private time, read a book and sleep in a train. I did NOT expect to be sharing my cabin with some random guy. It was a weird experience. If I knew that I would be sharing a cabin with somebody I would have saved my money and traveled in second class. I wanted a PRIVATE CABIN. That is the reason why I bought a first class ticket. Your customers will always assume that if they are booking a first class cabin that they will be ALONE in the cabin, not sharing. Please provide this option on your website and please clearly tell customers that they will be forced to share a room with somebody. It's not fair that I paid so much money and then I had to share the room. I really did not enjoy that experience. I hope that I do not have to share a cabin again on the way home.
Train #26 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Aug 13, 2022
It was a long but beautiful ride to Bangkok. In some intermediate stations locals come on board with food and drinks, so you don't go hungry and thirsty. We traveled in a 2nd class air-conditioned carriage, whose toilet was kept clean, about the other carriages I can't say anything. Our carriage was also cleaned at regular intervals. A recommendation is to put on a sweater or vest, because by Thai standards the air conditioning is set to "very" cold, which cannot be kept for 7 hours.....then I speak for myself of course. In terms of comfort, the train is old, rattles and makes a lot of noise, but we didn't mind, it has its typical Thai charms. The seats are a little less comfortable, especially for big people. Legroom is plenty though. The big advantage of this ride, you see an enormous amount of the very variable and beautiful landscape. It's highly recommended for travelers who don't mind putting "luxury" aside for a while and enjoying the "everyday.
