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 12, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The trip was great. No much space for large laguage. They sell us on the evening the breakfast for tourists. Which is too expensive - on the morning there is enough local food to buy from peddlers.

We were very impressed by the service – simply perfect!
★★★☆☆ Oct 7, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Train 84 is really a bit old and passed it. We used train 9 two weeks ago and this was much better. Use this train to get around but no real luxury
★★★★★ Oct 6, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Nice experience
★★★★☆ Oct 5, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :

Train was loud and cold. Not as nice as previous overnight trains I have stayed on in Thailand
★★★☆☆ Sep 26, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
We checked in as one of the first passengers, yet were not seated next to each other. Way apart...
★★★★★ Sep 25, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air)
★★★★★ Sep 21, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
It was very nice trip. Atleast water and coffee should be included in train fare.

All perfect. Agency very professional.
★★★☆☆ Sep 4, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air) :
En el aeropuerto de Suratthani al realizar el check in nos exigieron enseñar el equipaje y nos lo pesaron estrictamente. Tuvimos que facturar una de las mochilas que aunque es gratis, fue un rollo porque tardaron muchísmo en salir las maletas a la lloegada. El avión nos dejó muy lejos de la terminal en don mueang, un viaje bastante largo en un autobúsque iba muy lleno y no te podías ni agarrar. Me imagino que las maletas tardaron tanto en llegar por la lejanía y porque no empezaron a sacarlas hasta que el avión estaba vacío. El vuelo muy bien.
★★★☆☆ Sep 4, 2017 (train #32 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Exchanged ticket which worked well. Maybe that was the reason why the cabine (1st class) was quite dirty. Also slower than the original train (+2 hours) and what bothered me most was that it was not clear to me that the food was 550 baht extra and that I was not allowed to leave the train one station early.
★★★★★ Sep 4, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Sep 3, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Really comfortable and clean beds. Staff very nice and helpful.

★★★★★ Aug 29, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Quick. Efficient. Organised. Well done!! :)
★★★★☆ Aug 27, 2017 (train #32 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Train was good (1st class), suited family of 4 as 2x2 interconnecting cabins worked really well. However it was a bit late leaving and also quite slow, didn't bother us though as we weren't in a rush for anything. Food ordered on touch screen didn't arrive and had to go fetch ourselves. 12go gave bad information about 400 baht refund as instructions said to collect in cash when collecting tickets from Surat Thani parcel room, staff didn't know anything and it got quite embarrassing repeatedly asking for it. In the end parcel room staff helped me by dialing 12go and they refunded to card, could have done with better instructions and less hassle.

★★★★★ Aug 26, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
1st class sleeper was great for us as a couple. Plenty of room for our luggage, and a good night of sleep. Ask the staff where to stand on the platform, as it is very long.
★★★★☆ Aug 24, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Left and arrived on time. Comfortable seats that transform to comfortable beds. Friendly, helpful staff at Surat Thani train station too.

★★★★☆ Aug 23, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air)
★★☆☆☆ Aug 22, 2017 (train #44 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
AC was freezing cold and seats only was very uncomfortable/awkward for sleeping
★★★★★ Aug 22, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I have to admit, i was a bit skeptical about the service but everything worked like a charm! I got my ticket for the train from surat thani to Bangkok delivered at the parcel office. I definitely recommend this website if you want a cheap option to travel around Thailand
★★★☆☆ Aug 21, 2017 (train #174 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Aug 20, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The upper beds are less comfortable than the lower beds.
★★★★☆ Aug 20, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Pickinh up the tickets at the parcel room in Suratthani was easy. The trainpersonel was not very helpfull. Second class as was doable for a family with adolescents
★★★★★ Aug 18, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Traveled 1st class - much better than 2nd class since it's cleaner. Everything on schedule and staff is very friendly and helpful! The shared toilet is OK, but not the cleanest. The AC in the room is way too cold - the provided blankets are too thin. Bring your own breakfast if you can - the one on the train is pretty poor.
★★★☆☆ Aug 18, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
The sleepers were relatively comfortable, but the train itself was still kinda grimy & dingy.
★★★☆☆ Aug 16, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Train was exactly the same as 20 years ago, so now dirtier and onder of course. Service fron 12go was adsoluteley excellent!
★★★★☆ Aug 15, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Train was late (about 1hr), but same happens in England, so not worried. We went 1st class AC. Great as we booked two double rooms that interconnected to make a 4. Great with kids. Fun journey. Make sure you buy food/ drinks at nearby shops before getting train. Breakfast silly price. Or can buy food from ladies that get on at the stations close to Bangkok.
★★★★☆ Aug 14, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
Relax travelling!
★★★★☆ Aug 14, 2017 (bus Express, Sri Suthep Tour) :
Comfortable seats, we got offered free water, cookies and a blanket (or actually towel). Only took us 9 hours to get from Suratthani to Bangkok! However the toilet was disqusting.
★★★☆☆ Aug 12, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
There was no space to put our cases anywhere. Guy came round early morning and insisted on taking down all the beds back to seating again, and my sunglasses got lost in the melee of his quick cleaning of our area.
★★★★★ Aug 12, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Aug 12, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great way to commute in Thailand. Toilets in stations and trains are not for the faint ones. That's why I rate it 4 *
★★★★☆ Aug 11, 2017 (train #40 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
too cold on the train
★★★★★ Aug 10, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Highly recommended. 12go.asia were very efficient getting back to us as soon as they'd booked the tickets and it was easy to collect the tickets from the parcel room at Surat Thani station. It was lovely travelling first class - the kids loved the excitement, as did I !
★★★★★ Aug 10, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Great experience, kids loved it and very smooth picking up tickets etc.
★★★★★ Aug 9, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
First time booking with this company - totally painless and easy. Tickets were collected at the parcel office no problem (I was worried about that bit - but smooth as silk!)
★★★★☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Awsome

★★★★☆ Aug 5, 2017 (train #40 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
An enjoyable but long train journey, nice food and easy ticket collection. It was cold but we were prepared with sweaters. My only disappointment was that the windows of the train were very dirty! We took the train especially to see the landscape of Thailand but it was difficult to see through the dirt.

Upper berths are very narrow and there was no place to put our backpacks (only way to small racks).
★★★★★ Jul 30, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Only company to use while in Asia
★★★★☆ Jul 30, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
Check in was a bit chaotic! Air Asia should rethink their procedures here. However rest of the flight went very smoothly with flight being punctual and cabin crew were great!

It was a first time to book with 12go. All was very good job from them, thank to you to made my travel pleasant ????
★★★★★ Jul 27, 2017 (bus Express, Krung Siam Tour) :
Very comfortable seats and friendly staff. Appreciated the complimentary water, snack, headphones, pillow and blanket.
★★★★★ Jul 26, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
We have travelled 2nd class which was great, this time 1st class which was really special as we had a private compartment with bunk bed. Very romantic to fall asleep in one town and wake up to breakfast in Bangkok. We had wash basin and air con which made it quite cold, so make sure you have the right clothes. The shared shower and Western toilet was very clean. Very nice helpful staff made us tea/coffee and food. The set menu is great and quite cheap and very hygienic. You can also buy drinks and snacks from the vendors who come aboard during the journey - more choice in 2nd class as the vendors can't sell so easily in 1st class as passengers are behind closed doors. Overall - great value and great fun. The train was an hour late getting in to Bangkok, (i.e. a few Thai minutes)! 12Go are awesome; helped when our connecting transport was late and we were worried about collecting tickets, quick refund when we cancelled one trip, lots of support and very efficient! Do it!
★★★★☆ Jul 23, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Very comfortable 1st class sleeper. Small sink and bottled water in the compartment. Station and train attendants all very helpful.

★★★★★ Jul 13, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Great trip, so nice to be able to have a private room (1st class sleeper) while traveling. Staff was nice, rice soup for breakfast was really nice (130 bht). Had reading lights, a/c and our own sink. Just be prepared to use squat toilet on moving train... though they do provide toilet paper. Well rested and a fun way to travel!
★★★★★ Jul 10, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
It was a nice pleasant train journey.
★★★★☆ Jul 6, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
Most backpackers will need to check a bag as 7kg is the max weight for cabin bags.
★★★★★ Jul 5, 2017 (train #40 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
The left on time, food was unexpected and so very nice, able to navigate the experience with no Thai language ability at all, train had a few bugs... but what to do... smooth ride, clean bathrooms... great service.... having the tickets mailed was so easy, they were there waiting for me no trouble.
★★★★☆ Jul 5, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways)
★★★★☆ Jul 2, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Traveled 1 class. Trains were OK. On the downside, the bathroom smelled bad and it was a bit cold in the bed because the blanket is thin. Breakfast could also improve. On the up side, train staff was very helpful and friendly, train was on schedule.
★★★★★ Jul 1, 2017 (train #168 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Nice clean train. Enjoyed the trip. Luggage space could have been more. Thanks.
★★★☆☆ Jun 29, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★★★★ Jun 26, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
All transfers were organized very smoothly. I had to pick up tickets from Parcels office and they had arrived on my day of travel. The journey was extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend this operator for online bookings in Thailand.
★★★★★ Jun 23, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I enjoy this trip so much. Thanks!
★★★☆☆ Jun 23, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Different and exciting experience. Reasonably comfortable. My boyfriend and myself slept in first class which meant we had our own room with a bunk bed and sink in it. Couldn't turn air con of which was very cold. Slight delay of half an hour. I wouldn't 100% recommend buying food/drinks from a local 7 eleven before getting on the train as there isn't a lot of food options, its all meals and they're expensive. I wouldn't order breakfast. Room was clean, 12 Go Asia was a very professional company. I would definitely use this transport again.
★★★★★ Jun 21, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
Cool and quick local flight, enjoyed it :) And they have a free transfer from Don Mueang to Suvarnabhumi Airport if you have a flight booking, ask information officers at Don Mueang

hi no problems good service, even got a biscuit! The staff are lovely, l,m sure the men are as well.
★★★★☆ Jun 1, 2017 (train #174 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The journey went very well, simple and straight forward. The train we traveled on was a bit older which is fine, except that the bathrooms were a bit icky. Second class is a great economical way to travel. I would very much recommend traveling by train any day. If you're looking to get good rest whilst on the train, I would highly recommend first class. In 2nd class they leave the lights on all night and allow noisy vendors into the train car. We very much preferred the privacy of first class with the ability to turn off the lights to get better sleep ;).
★★★★☆ May 31, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
I travelled first class on the bottom bed. It was a pleasant experience compared to last year when I travelled standard class. This time I had the whole room to myself as the top bed had not been booked. Their is a sink in the room with soap provided and a towel. The bed is nice and comfortable with enough leg room for even a taller person. You get a free bottle of water which is a nice touch. My only complaint which is a minor one is the room got a little cold and the blanket is a little thin. If they provide customers with a thicker blanket or just turn the air con down a notch then there would be no complaints.
★★★☆☆ May 30, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The ferry was great. However transfer to bus was a bit difficult. Quite a rush. Nearly missed it and no time for toilet break!! No toilet on the bus.
★★★★☆ May 29, 2017 (bus VIP24, Krung Siam Tour) :
The trip was Good, we got some drinks and a cake. unfortunately there were no movies in English, also we arrived 1h earlier as scheduled.
★★★☆☆ May 27, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai AirAsia) :
We arrived at the airport and took the lift up to the correct departure floor only to discover we had to rejoin a huge queue for the luggage check when we tried to check in, this wasn't signposted in anyway and no-one suggested this would be a problem. We are both quite small females and the legroom was less than average and quite uncomfortable. We travelled on economy before and found other the other Thai airline more than adequate.
