There was a delay. We've been perfectly informed and helped by the staff members of vietjet. Perfect. Keep up the good work.

Nice newer train. The 2nd class sleeper was very comfortable for my all night trip. The ride was smooth.
Train #140 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railway (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Dec 7, 2021
This has been a pleasant transfer from Ubon to Bangkok with the sleeping train. The seats were comfortable, with a clean blanket, we got a bottle of water as well as some snacks. Before we arrived in Bangkok we also got a refreshment towel. The staff was really nice and we had a got sleep while transferring. As we had been the only passengers who boarded in Ubon, we left 30 minutes earlier than the actual time which made our waiting time even less to start the journey. Therefore, we also arrived a little bit earlier. We would recommend the front seats in the upper deck or the first seats in the lower deck where you have a lot of space for yourself.

Very nice journey. Train Was early. But no Resturant carriage, which was disappointing
Train #68 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Feb 25, 2020
Perfect. We easily found our tickets at the parcel pickup office at Ubon Ratchathani station. The train was less 1st class than we expected and freezing cold, (but 12go is not to blame for that!). A minor price difference was refunded by 12go without problems. Very satisfied
Train #68 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Dec 12, 2019
The sleeper berth was relatively comfortable. Yet the noise from the trian kept me awake most of the night. So I was very tired the next when I arrived in Bangkok.
Train #68 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jul 14, 2019
Great spacing on the bus. Extremely comfortable and peaceful travel. We left right on time and arrived a bit earlier that advertised which was A-Okay. Only wish that there was a meal option (ticket says so) but we didn't stop to use the voucher or buy food. We did stop at a rest stop but the driver went in and went back to driving. I did not have time to put on my shoes by the time we drove off again. I will be using this line again, I will just get a more filling dinner beforehand
Bus VIP, Air Ubon Sombat, Jun 5, 2019
I chose a single seat for my journey from Sombat Tour and it was the best bus seat I've ever got. I've been traveling inside of Thailand a lot with buses and I liked it every time. It was almost 10 hours of journey from Ubon to Bangkok and since it was after a tough trip in Ubon, I wanted my seat to be comfy. The seat I reserved was on the first floor and single row. I could take a really good rest and I will use this company's bus again.
Bus VIP, Air Ubon Sombat, May 6, 2019
Everything wprked out smoothly
