servizio di 12 go asia perfetto! Treno invece molto vecchio, cuccetta con aria condizionata non regolabile e freddissima, molto sporco e arrivati a bangkok con più di 2 ore di ritardo. Esperienza da non ripetere, la prossima volta sceglieremo il volo visto che i prezzi sono simili.

Not bad, but not good. The trains in Thailand doesn’t always arrive on time. The train planned to get to Hua Lamphong around 6:30 but we got there before 10:00.

A real adventure. I would choose the train again, if I am not in a hurry. We had 2 1/2 hours delay. That was no problem for us, but would be, if we had a flight after the train.

Leuke ervaring! Best lekkere bedjes, zeker als je het vergelijkt met de nachtbus. Het vliegtuig is misschien net iets comfortabeler, maar vaak ook duurder. Ik zou de trein aanraden!

This year we made 3 boat trips with Lomprayah and I must say I'm quite disappointed in them. Two years ago much better, now people at Lomprayah not friendly at all (not what you expect from Thai people), delays (okay, may happen), but most frustrating they don't care about your bags, throwing as must as possible, chaos when deboarding, especially with transfers. Okay, no better choice than Lomprayah, as the other ferry companies are not be mentioned anyway. 12GoAsia, please share with Lomprayah as I'm not the only one.... Sorry for mentioning with other trip, but Thai Railways trip to Bangkok was very good!

Journey was alright, train was delayed (we heard that it's nearly always the case). Beds were kinda uncomfortable but clean, bathrooms were the worst we've seen in Thailand. We booked 2. Class AC and it was kinda noisy and hard to sleep. Keep in mind, that sellers will keep on waking you up in the morning to sell you something (overpriced- 100 baht for dissolvable coffee)
