The train is ok. The diningwagon is in Direstrait for a good cleaning, as well as the chef ????. Eat well before entering or stay hungry

Train #86 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jan 10, 2020
Bring your own food and water as it’s a bit pricey and not the nicest on the train , air con was on a bit high but I got a few extra blankets keep your cabin door shut in the morning as there are a lot of mozzies!! Man on train was rude and unhelpful but if you walk up and down you can find cleaners who were a lot more friendly! 12go booking was great I always use them for travel in Asia this trip was perfect but they overbooked in Bangkok so a couple had to wait for another bus. Just make sure you leave time in between if you have a flight or ferry as you can’t control transport delays

Train #40 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jan 8, 2020
Train Surat Thani to Bangkok.. the company itself are great to use but if you are travelling whilst trying to arrange the booking please remember to check in to your messages regularly tickets really are sold very quickly and ticket collection is busy and chaotic with many people collecting - be there early it’s a woman or man wandering around with a clipboard with your name on and an envelope containing the collected tickets - coach same thing get there early you need to find collection person or booth .. food is not great on the train and no stops .. much better on the coach you are given food and drinks with a smile and a food hall voucher - several stops to visit markets

My experience of the airport was poor sign posting. Trying to find my way to the only hotel was abysmal.

Train #84 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Dec 18, 2019
The trip, and the booking process, was everything a traveller could hope for. It was extremely simple and straightforward to book, and we received our booking confirmation less than a day after paying. 12go's Terms and Conditions attached to the booking PDF are hilarious, in case anyone reads them. Absolute gold. Couldn't have been better. Picking up the ticket was a cinch too.

Train #84 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Dec 17, 2019
We went to Bangkok by night train. We had bicycles with us and they cannot go with every train. Tickets for the bicycles had to be purchased separately at the station on the day of departure. Information provision on this was very good. Furthermore, booking the tickets for the night train went very well.

Train #86 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Dec 16, 2019
Extremely efficient booking process. Picking up the tickets on the day of was a breeze. Train-wise, it definitely isn't the cleanest / newest / freshest of trains but the beds (lower berth) was very comfortable and there was ample air conditioning. You may have to contend with the regular jawking of wares from the local food hawkers aboard the train, which I honestly think lends more authenticity to the whole travel experience. Train arrived 1-1.5h late so do account for some delays as you plan your trip. Overall, 12go was reliable, efficient and made this a pleasant journey!

Bus VIP, Krungsiam Tour (กรุงสยามทัวร์), Dec 2, 2019
The bus trip was fairly ok, reasonably comfortable and we got to Bangkok in time. I gave only three stars due to several thing that were not as advertised or annoyed us: 1) Arival in Bangkok was said to be in 5:00. We arrived at 5:45. 45 minutes is a reasonable delay, but one that should be considered when planning transfers. 2) It said that bus will drop passengers at "Krungsiam Tour station (Ratchadamnoen Rd.) first, then will go to Southern bus terminal (sai tai mai). In reality the bus has 3 other stops in Bangkok alone, including Khao San Rd. area. Would be useful to list stops, so that people (especially tourists) do not jump out before they should. 3) No information in the bus in English. Not about stops, not about where we are. 4) When buying the ticket, it was said "Bus will stop in the middle of the route for passengers to have a free meal in a local restaraunt". In reality, it did stop, but only for 20 minutes and there was no free meal and too little time to have a meal at all. And again, no information until we asked the personnel three times. (We were fine without the meal, but please do not provide misleading information).

The 12 go service is excellent as usual Overall the ride was comfortable, and the sheets and the carriage were clean. Fortunately, we were not late for the flight despite an hour and a half train delay, according to the staff's indifference this delay was not something unusual The restrooms were clean but very far from comfortable

Por ser primeira classe , eu esperava mais . A cabine não é limpa , a pia dentro da cabine estava suja , encardida , e se vê nas paredes muita sujeira . A cama ok , bem confortável . O café da manhã um roubo , o rapaz tinjo dito que era 170,00 baths por pessoa , cobraram 280,09 bahs , a desculpa que estavam cobrando a diferença pelo café , para mim café da manhã e tudo incluso , e mesmo assim , não pedi o café a parte , veio, já que cobrava , teria que perguntar se queria o café . Decepcionante , além de tudo , café fraco, pouca coisa , enfim , não viajaria mais com esse trem .

Pontos positivos: - pontual na saída; - roupa de cama limpa; - darem sabonete e uma água; - WC ter-se conseguido manter próprio para utilização. Pontos negativos: - chegou atrasado quase 2h; - caro para a diferença que existe entre a segunda e a primeira classe, ou seja, em primeira temos uma cabine com lavatório onde só estavam as duas pessoas que tinham reservado.

It's an old train, and it shows. The beds themselves are clean but the train is dirty, the toilets block easily and the food is fairly poor. The train was 3 hours late getting into Bangkok. On the plus side, the air conditioning was set at a good level - not too hot, not too cold, and the staff on board are friendly and helpful.

Very comfortable bottom bunk (definitely recommend lower) - I was worried that it was gonna be dirty and/or have a lot of bugs but it was surprisingly very clean and not noisy at all - slept comfortably all the way back. The only downside was that the train was 3 hours delayed - we were on a 9:04 pm - 8:30 am but arrived at 11;30 am. Otherwise great! Top bunk is super tight squeeze though.
