Loved the ride from start to finish! The seats/Beth's were really good! I wasn't expecting anything better, and even though the top bed was "barely" good enough, I got some good sleep! If you want to experience more, I'd for sure recommend looking for a sitting place/going to eat in the restaurant wagon. It's there that you see the crazy you might expect from Thai trains as a tourist. Open windows, people smoking inside, others getting in the train to sell food. (They do come in the berth cars as well.). You can get some awesome night views from the other cars. Morning views are nice as well tho! Not saying anything about those either. Dining car was what is to be expected of such trips I think. Better then airplane food, but still, it's pretty much just a microwave meal.. but on the better side of the spectrum I feel. The views of Thailand passing by, the noise the train makes, and the wind trough your hairs. That's what makes this dinner! For everyone looking for a bit of adventure, a bit of the fun kind of crazy, take this train! It's definitely more of an experience then another flight. And it's more eco friendly as well! And we all need to be that a bit more!

The train was comfortable to sleep in term of space, but limited space for luggage rack. Have difficulty to communicate in English with restaurant staffs when ordering foods.

Train was roomy and comfortable. Staff were very nice and helpful. Would be 5 stars but there was no hot water on the train for making tea/coffee you could only buy this from the staff. Also the train took 2 hours longer than expected.
