Dear Railways Passenger!
We are not (yet) an online system for Thai Railways. We are manually buying tickets for you at the station. Trains in Thailand are usually sold out (especially VIP class compartments). It may happen that your preferred berth (upper or lower) is not available. In this case we can try to get a different berth for you. You may select your flexibility level below.

You can not travel with the voucher you got from us. You need to come and check in to collect your boarding passes. The process is very similar to the one you know from the airport. You can not board the train without a special boarding pass.

Why book with us?

  • Simple and seamless booking process.
  • Usually we confirm your tickets within 24h.
  • Ticket pickup at/near the departure station in Bangkok with an alternative shipping option to the parcel room at your departure station or by EMS to your home/hotel address.
  • Multiple refund/change/shipping options nobody else can provide for you. Changing a boarding pass costs 160 Baht extra (fee per person). Our booking fee is there to cover costs for providing tickets to our customers. This involves our staff going to the railways counter, wait in the queue and arrange the best tickets for you, depending on availability and according to your requirements and much much more. The purchasing process of train tickets is different to our bus tickets, which are instantly confirmed - bus operator systems are connected in real-time. Trains are not like that. In case we have charged a higher price at the moment of booking (for child fares, changing VIP to 2nd Class, upper/lower, etc.) we refund in cash when you pick up tickets.

Please note: Thai railways release seats to the public 60 days before the departure for long-hauls and 30 days for short routes (e.g. Bangkok <-> Chumphon). If your departure is in more than 60 (30) days your payment and request will be held in the system and we issue tickets at first possibility ensuring you get the seats you want.

Attention: Please enter your real gender when booking. If you have mentioned you are female and book 1st Class/VIP, we'll put you with another female passenger. If in reality you are not exactly female - you may face well expected difficulties when boarding...

Travel with children: Please note that the policy of Thai Railways permits children less than 12 years old or of height under 150cm to travel on LOWER BERTHS ONLY.

  • The children who are entitled the child ticket price age between 3-12 and not higher than 140 cm. If the child is a boy, the age should be under 8 years old only (under 140cm) otherwise, he is not allow in the car.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Chiang Mai #9

The following refund options are available:

  1. Refund 80% (excl. fees)
    If you would like to cancel your booking before the boarding pass is printed.
    Amount to be refunded: USD 26.59

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)
    If you would like to cancel your booking after the boarding pass is printed.
    Press refund button before 2018-04-25 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).
    Amount to be refunded: USD 16.62

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)
    If you would like to cancel your booking after the boarding pass is printed.
    Press refund button between 2018-04-25 18:10 PM and 2018-04-27 18:10 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).
    Amount to be refunded: USD 4.99

  4. Cancel
    Amount to be refunded: USD 0.00

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 while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

★☆☆☆☆
No towel, cloth or paper to dry hands in restroom. Sleeping car room dirty. No trash can in sleeping car. Food was worst I’ve ever eaten. Toilet room stunk and we hadn’t even left the station. Air conditioning controlled by conductor and sleeper was stuffy and window did not open. Never again

★★☆☆☆
The man who makes the beds was very efficient but if you are in the seats right by the door where the train makes such loud and terrible noises you should pay less for those seats because it was impossible to sleep. The food is very expensive! And the catering staff are very pushy and wake you up while you’re still trying to sleep in the morning. We will rather book 1st class next time.

Mooie trein voorzien van airco. Onderste bed heeft de meeste ruimte. Het licht blijft snachts branden dus een slaapmasker is geen overbodige luxe! Wij hebben op het station in Bangkok eten gekocht dus geen gebruik gemaakt van het eten in de trein. Toiletten zijn schoon. Leuke ervaring!

We travelled on the #9 train - was definitely worth the extra money for the newer train. The toilets and facilities were fantastic. If you're a bit taller, I'd highly recommend going for the lower berth (it is wider due to the lack of back rest) - I'm tall-ish (6'2") and the lower berth helps with sleeping diagonally. Food was also great - little bit expensive for us budget travellers (~200B for dinner or breakfast), but it's on a train, so no worries.

We traveled to Chiang Mai on Train No. 9 and had a great trip! The train was very clean and the staff was very nice. We did research prior to the trip and read that Train no. 9 is a newer one and it definitely appeared to be. I would recommend booking a lower berth if possible. All in all it was a really neat experience and one that I'd definitely do again. I was very impressed with 12goAsia's customer service as well. Very friendly and thorough.

Nice train with very clean sleepers. Staff was very friendly and tried to help as much as they could (they only spoke thai but hey... we're in Thailand :)) the food on board was ok, the a/c was quite cold but you could regulate the airstream so that wasn't a problem. It's an experience and gets you a far distance without wasting huge amounts of your time.

This was better than expected. We had booked and paid for first class sleeper but it was fully booked so we got moved to a second class sleeper. Correspondence with the company was good, they were efficient and had quick replies. They helped give us our options when we were first class was booked and asked if we wanted a refund or go with second class. Picking up the tickets was easy. The train was delayed so there was a lot of sitting around (no ones fault). The train itself was clean and comfortable. Bring an eye mask because they do not turn off the lights. We ordered breakfast and it was good. Overall I enjoyed it and would ride the train again.

The staff were super nice and friendly and always answers our questions. Their instructions were easy to follow. The ride was smooth and atleast we were able to sleep. Though the AC was on blast during the middle of the night and we have to wake up 2x to find an extra jackets cause it was super chilly. But one thing is that there was a cockroach crawling on the bed. And also about the transparency of the billing. First is when we calculated the sum of the actual ticket and the online booking fee it didn’t match with the one on the paper receipt. Even if its just a few baht i was hoping that all that was charged could atleast been shown in the receipt. Second is that I booked the roundtrip tickets only yet I was charged with 2 online booking fees. From the blog that have read, we thought we can spend less riding on the train but it seems that flying was a better choice. More comfortable and less amount of time being spent.

Good experience overall and better than we expected. Though, one of our beds (top bunk) kept on coming off its hinges and trying to close up on the person sleeping in it. It was easy to fix, but a bit awkward. The train ride up was long (14 hours) and the last bit was the longest as we were awake from 07:00 and the heat kept on getting strong as we approached midday. It was comfortable for us and a memorable experience.

We took the night train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai in 1st class private compartiment. It’s nice and private . Walls are thin so you will hear your neighbor snore or talk loud if they do . The food on board is not nice so bring your own snacks. Alcohol is not served and forbidden on board . The orange jus that the lady gives you when you arrive is not free so if you don’t want to pay the next day just say no . The screen in the compartiment didn’t work properly si you can’t see what’s available to eat . I suggest you go directly to the restaurant to see what’s available because if you adked the staff after they offer you to look at their set menu they can be very annoyed and rude. It’s very cold at night so bring some warm cloths (the blanket provided is not enough )

So, if you haven't been on this trip it's definitely worth doing. Great scenery and a pretty good ride. The food is nothing you'd write home about - at least in a good way - but you won't starve. We brought extra food as did some of the people who had taken the trip before. The train left on time and arrived on time - to the minute. Next time I'm going to try the overnight sleeper.

We enjoyed the whole experience and recommend it.

The tickets from Bangkok to Chiang Mai were easy to book and pay for in advance via 12Go Asia from Australia. The staff were friendly and the train was very clean and secure. The adjoining doors between cabins are great for families. Train staff helped us with getting our bags onboard. The toilets were easy to find and clean. Onboard staff were friendly and the sleepers had plenty of room for bags. Food was average. For the overnight sleeper you could easily eat before you boarded and bring your own snacks. We thought the orange juice given when we boarded was complimentary and were surprised to be charged later for it. Would definately travel by train this way again. Yes, wear a jumper is cold onboard .

Excellent service, except for the dining car. 100% disorganised. Have your order taken, and never receive any food or beverage. Have to order again, & just hope you don't get the same item twice! Considering the number of foreigners on the train, menu was mostly in Thai. Prices charged didn't reflect the prices listed on the menu. All guess work. Sleeping car staff were more helpful with ordering food than the dining car staff, if that tells you anything! Sleeping car staff were excellent & very helpful. If you can, get your tickets direct from SRT.

We booked our night train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai via 12GoAsia which was really straight forward, we collected our tickets an hour before departure as advised. Foolishly we left one of our travel bags behind at their office and only realised once we were on the train. Amazingly they took the initiative to hang out wet beach towels and swimming gear out to dry , they packaged up our GoPro camera and once we got in touch they put the whole package on the next overnight train for their agent on Chiang Mai to collect . We were so impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing a travel agent in Thailand.

I'm very, very disappointed with 12goasia. I booked this ticket one month before the trip. I requested a lower birth. 12goasia gave me an upper birth. So I called 12goasia. The women I spoke to was polite, however she insisted that there were not any lowers births available, so, I had no other choice since I was in Hua Hin and you cannot book at the train station in HH to go from BKK. NOT to my surprise there were many empty lowers births on the car I was on. In fact the birth below mine was empty! Car 5 number seat 10 was empty. I was on seat 9. If I had a choice to book in person I always do that. However it seems like 12goasia has a monopoly on online booking of the train. Having said all that, the journey was great, train staff are great at getting the beds made up with clean sheets. I have traveled on this train before on the lower birth and it gets very cold. The upper birth seems to not be as cold and it's not a problem climbing up and down. There is not a window on the upper birth as on the lower, but there is a power outlet. Bring a sweater. Enjoy the new train.

There was air conditioning and it was FREEZING (still, much better than sweltering). Seating that porter converted into comfortable lower and upper berths with sheet, pillow, blanket, and privacy curtains.

We (me and my partner) stayed in a first class cabin. I slept on the lower bunk and it was very comfortable; he stayed on the top and said he was comfortable too. The man who changed the sofa into beds was friendly and helpful. There was a woman who was trying to sell us things who was a bit pushy but overall would highly recommend! Didn’t waste a day travelling and slept most of the journey.

For whatever reason the 2nd class sleeper was an older model not the one I'm told is usually on the train. Only squat toilets and a loose door that slammed repeatedly through the night whenever the carriage rattled. Train staff felt the need to have some sort of shouting match around 3am in the porter's area too.

The website 12go.asia is amazing to use. They send ticket reminders and a full page of instructions on how to pick up your ticket. Very easy to use and stress free as well. I really appreciated it! The sleeper car was as comfortable as could be for having to be on a train for 12 hours lol. We took the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The room has 2 places to charge your phone. I would recommend bringing a sweater (it gets cold on the top bunk), iPad or books and snacks. They only provide one small bottle of room temp water. Very pleased with everything. Thanks!

The rooms in the first class air conditioned sleeper train (#9), were great! Extremely clean, they all included a bunk bed, blankets, pillows, basin, plenty of room for bags etc. If you are a family/group of x4, there is an opening door to join the rooms together... The staff are very friendly and helpful. The air-con is very cold, so make sure you bring extra warm clothes if you can. Great value!

The gentleman helping us in first class was terrific. He made the beds up and helped again the following morning. The cabin was ample for 2 people and very clean. We had dumplings from the restaurant car and coffee the next morning - no complaints there. I'm sorry but the beds are very hard to sleep on so we didn't sleep well. I would still do it all again though because it was a great experience and very reasonably priced. The lovely train man also unloaded all the heavy bags on to the platform. Well done Thai railways

Loved our 1st class sleeper car - however, when I booked this trip I wanted the 1st class sleeper, none were available so I booked the 2nd class. I looked at the website a few days later and there were first class sleeper cars available, all I wanted to do was upgrade but they wouldn't let me. I had to cancel my original booking and book the 1st class and even though the website says you will get an 80% refund they only gave me about a 37% refund. So I ended up spending almost $200 for us to stay in the 1st class sleeper, it was worth it.

It was okay. We were mislead on what was available with the first class sleeper, expected the newer cars. That said, service received from 12go asia was good. I would just clarify more on the selection first class so that there is no expectation for the newer cars. Some notes of the first class sleeper cabins... the table was definitely worn and could use some hardware replacement (slanted down) and maybe cleaning the cabins would be beneficial (there were fingerprint smudges on the windows, not from us... and there was garbage from previous riders). Also, food was a little overpriced.

Air con on all the time so suggest bringing socks to keep the feet warm. Very nice crisp, clean white cotton set on the bed and a lovely soft all cotton blanket. Nice pillow, too. Eye mask and ear plugs made my trip more pleasurable and I slept through the night. Nice sense of privacy in lower bunk and plenty of room. Only disappointment is that the 6 oz. cup of drip coffee was 60 baht which is what you would pay for a good cup of espresso at a nice coffee shop in Chiang Mai.

The first class sleeper car was comfortable and the a/c worked great - it was almost too cold. We asked for an extra blanket, but were refused so you might consider bringing something. The upper berth gets the brunt of air at night, so socks and long sleeves were appropriate. No problems with getting in or out of platforms, as there were both on ground level. We even got help with the luggage this time. 12goAsia does a terrific job with tickets and I would use them again.

Lower bunk in 2nd Class AC was a good experience. Not too cold and more space than the top bunk. Didn't try the breakfast (140-190+ THB). After 8 am you wake up with breakfast being served, and around 10 am they convert the beds into seats. Overall a decent sleep, though there were bugs crawling on the walls every now and then... Polite staff, and we arrived near the estimated time.

If you get a top bunk make sure you take warm clothes or extra blankets and take ear plugs as the air con it’s fully on and makes for a chilly journey. I would also recommend taking eye mask as the train lights are left on all night and isn’t covered by the top beds curtains. If you gets a bottom bed you have nothing to worry about, it’s a very pleasant journey. I recommend paying the extra for a bottom bed to get a good nights sleep. Also be careful as a breakfast menu will be presented asking what you would like in the morning, but it’s not free and you do have to pay.

EVERYONE READ THIS REVIEW!!!!! Let me start by saying these folks at 12go.asia are as good as it will ever be in the customer service industry. They went above and beyond any and every expectation I could ever have. We were very very late getting to the train station due to a traffic jam on the highway . We almost didn't make it. I emailed customer service and they responded in seconds. Very good communication with me. I was updating our status for them and they were timing out everything. We had no time by the time we got to the train station to even think about going to the office to pick up our tickets. They were waiting for us at the train at our car with the tickets! Communication was excellent. Now don't be like us. Get to the office early to pick up. But things happend and these folks made everything great! I will 100% look them up again! No question. Thank you to the wonderful staff at 12go.asia for really making our trip!

I thought the service was great! The breakfast was over priced but still we had a good journey! Only thing I would say is it’s hard to sleep with the lights on so I didn’t really get any sleep. Trains in India are bad service and journeys but got more sleep as you can turn off the lights in the night

The train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai left at 22:00 on schedule; we arrived there an hour and 45 minutes late. The 2nd class car looked unappealing when we entered, but it proved to be extremely comfortable and the whole journey, despite the lateness of arrival, was enjoyable. If someone is into extreme comfort, then 1st class (which I've not tried) is probably better, but I'd recommend this to anyone with a sense of adventure. And the staff on board the train was great.

All staff on board were friendly and helpful. The office staff were outstanding, with great communication in the run up to the trip (regarding how and where to collect tickets) and when we were there, all very quick and efficient. We also got some money back as the tickets were cheaper than expected, so that was a pleasant bonus! Would definitely use again.

12go service was fast and flawless. I would gladly book with them again. Train ride was mixed. Pros were new clean berths and our family of 2 adults and 2 kids were together. The car was cold but we were prepared. Bathroom was typical of an airplane bathroom after 10 hours. Cons were the lights on all night and having berths by the doors. It was a temptation for our kids to push the button as well as a security issue being so near the doors to the outside while trying to sleep with little ones. Next time I would book extra early to try for a first class berth with a locking door for peace of mind and being able to turn out the lights. An adult traveling solo or in a group would find second class comfortable and secure (just ask for a mid-car berth).

+ Punctual departure and arrival, fair amount of leg and body space per seat, some were reclinable, free small snacks, meals and hot & cold drinks were served multiple times. – Small cockroaches lingered on the floor and in the cracks where dirt and food crumbs gathered, seats were rotatable so they wobbled with movements of the train and passengers getting up and sitting down.

Cannot fault the service from 12Go. It was really efficient and clear. We picked up the tickets a few days before and were pleasantly surprised by a refund of 200thb because upper bunk was cheaper. The train itself #13 is an older style one, but comfortable enough and very clean. The cabin is small but sufficient and the steward folds the bunks out before the evening meal. We traveled first class and we're glad of the bunks! Food was good and appeared to be cheap, but there were many add-ons so we were annoyed at the final bill. Next time we'll take our own snacks. We both slept reasonably well.

I didn't realize with this trip bring my first time to Thailand that booking through this company you pay them a 25% markup on the actual price.

A very interesting experience for a first-time traveller and first-time railway user. The sleeper was comfortable and clean, albeit chilly if you are on the AC train and have a top berth. (Bring an extra blanket if you are as their’s are a tad thin!) Left Bangkok after dark, and awoke in the most astonishingly beautiful Thai countryside. Open windows in the dining car to drink in the passing landscape. Food was decent, but definitely overpriced compared to what you would get on the street. Still, for a 14-hour journey and no other options, it was worth the price. If you can, pack something ahead of time, at least for your first meal so you can justify splurging on the second one. Will use again! Thank you!

And I stayed in an all women’s car...however I thought only women and children were allowed in the car but there were men walking in and out because the first class car was one car behind us. I felt safe, but it was different from what I expected. I met some great people and the train was very clean and well cared for.

Really enjoyable trip along this very scenic line. We passed giant Buddhas, magnificent temples, and a troupe of monkeys !!! Complimentary meals were provided on the train. Air conditioning worked very well. There were also fans but they were turned off. The three car unit was hardly modern, but it was comfortable, and staff work hard to keep it in optimum condition. Someone regularly walked up and down the carriages sweeping up and collecting rubbish. Almost as soon as the train had reached its terminus, staff were busy turning the seats round so they were all facing in the direction of travel. Book early,as our train was fully booked.

Was expecting frigid temps, which didn’t occur. Also, sometime in the night the lights got turned off-yea. Biggest improvement would be to have dining passengers eat elsewhere; their seat mates could not have their beds made up until the meal and this table were gone. Also some windows were too fogged between glass plates so as no longer transparent. One couldn’t view the passing scenery. All in all, the very best mode of travel. Wish SE Asia had more railroads!

Heard of people feeling unsafe on the night train, with items going missing etc. This was not a concern of mine staff were present all the time and also very friendly! It sounds like a very long time to be on a train but it went very fast for me just bring yourself a little entertainment, we had playing cards. It is a little on the noisy side though and fairly bumpy so I didn’t have a fantastic sleep but a worth while experience all the same.

Top class service from 12go Asia and Thai state railways. 12go Asia offered excellent service and information regarding ticketing and information updates. The train was absolutely spotless and staff very friendly. British rail could learn a lot from Thai state railways. Would I recommend 12go Asia for ticketing absolutely yes.

FIVE STARS! Quite frankly I was hesitant to use 12go because of the name. But I was really impressed with buying our tickets on their site, and when I went to pick them up at the DOB building it was smooth AND they issued me a 100 bt refund because one of the bunks ended up being cheaper. Finally, when train was delayed, they sent their staff over to the station to explain what was going on. Awesome experience with them. Two requests though: faster reservation confirmations that you got your tickets would be really appreciated, and better English instructions to find the DOB building.. As for the trip fantastic accommodations, thank you!

Dropped one star because the train was about an hour and a half late leaving (due to a broken rail). But the announcements kept saying 10 more minutes, 10 more minutes. However the actual journey and booking process was very good, the train was clean and cleaned regularly, the staff were friendly, the food ok and the beds comfortable. I would definately do this journey again. 12Go were excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody. Andrew, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Excellent service from the staff. Ordered dinner and it actually came a bit early. Better than ok meal for a fair price. Ordered breakfast at the same time which turned up exactly at the time the attendant said it would. The lights aren't swatched off at night so if you need it pitch black to sleep, bring an eye mask. Bottom bunks are more roomy and have the added avantage of the window for early morning viewing as the train chugs up through the hills towards Chiang Mai. Can't fault the experience.

I actually really enjoyed the second class sleeper and in comparison to some friends who traveled first class, it sounded as if second class ended up being the better option. Luck of the draw apparently though depending on what train and what carriages you get. The hospitality was super lovely from the staff on the train. Food was also delicious. A bit pricier than your street food but worth the experience. The lights didn't turn off during the night so an eye mask and pair of ear phones are handy. As a couple, we booked two lower sleepers to sit across from each other for easier communication, however, we swapped with another couple so we each had an upper/lower. This way, we felt more comfortable during the night knowing we wouldn't disturb someone we didn't know when climbing up and down the ladder for night time toilet visits. Would definitely book with 12go and second class sleeper again :)

It was a trouble-free experience from 12Go Asia side. However I can’t say the same about the train ride from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The lights were left on 100% bright despite the night service. The automatic door to the compartment didn’t work. It had to be opened manually. In practice nobody bothered to closed it behind neither fellow pax nor train personnel (!!!) which was very annoying noise-wise since our beds were right by the door. The temperature in the train was too low which I did’t understand since some of the train personnel seemed to feel cold too.

I enjoyed everything about my trip. I booked only two days ahead, so I got an upper bunk. However, I did my research and was well prepared. I changed into a warm outfit and used my eye mask and went straight to bed. I was able to fall asleep. To my surprise I slept very well, and the whole trip was very relaxing. The train rocked a bit back and forth and this put me to sleep (like a baby). I found the staff warm and welcoming. The woman who helped us with breakfast was such a hard worker and was very kind. My rice porridge was fabulous! I found the trip to be more quiet and peaceful than most hostels I've been in. I believe this is a better way to travel than a flight, especially if you would like to see the scenery. Thanks for the trip!

It was impossible to sleep on express train 13 as the lights were left on all night - not dimmed, on full brightness. For people on the top bunk, you have a thin blue gauze material curtain to protect you from the light, which doesn’t work at all. Really disappointing, I only slept by tying a jumper around my eyes. Also - it was freezing. The experience was interesting and worth it, but get a lower bunk for more darkness and steal an extra blanket from a spare bunk if you can - it is too cold otherwise.

I was in train number 9 which I think is one of the more modern ones. The train was really clean, toilets were better than I expected after reading some bad reviews before getting on train, they were like an airplane toilet and quite clean. I got food on board in the dining carriage, microwave for meal but pretty tasty, no room to sit down in the dining carriage so had to take it back to my bed (seats were converted into beds about 1. 5 hour into the journey). Beds got a bit uncomfortable, I was in a top bunk and felt I would slide out at some points! Definitely recommend getting a bottom berth. Overall pretty good journey and nice and quiet.

Excellent ride in January 2018 on the 18:10 train nr. 9 to Chiang Mai. I recommend :) The air conditioning was a bit chilly and the lights don’t go off during the night. Minor problems on lower berth. The curtains (and my own thin fleece blanket as a double curtain) solved the temperature and light on the upper berth. The on board restaurant has free WiFi, but slow connection. The toilets were clean and overall they had good service. I’d do it again, only next time during daylight to enjoy the scenery :)

This type of travel was reliable and interesting. I took a group of 9 students from America and we all made it safely to Chiang Mai. We were abruptly woken up by the woman serving breakfast at about 8am and had to quickly get out of bed and move our stuff so they could change the beds into table and chairs. We were aggressively offered breakfast, and the price is slightly inflated from what you would pay in Thailand so if you may want to just prepare and bring your own food. The train is not new or modern, but that adds a certain Harry Potter-like feel. Overall a good experience and way to see the country! 12go was simple and easy way to book these tickets.

I was very impressed by the service from 12Go! We were able to find your well marked office to pick up our tickets several days before the trip. Not knowing what to expect, we arrived much earlier than we needed to, to be sure we knew where to go, and t that point there were no 12Go t-shirts around, but we found our train car and cabin very easily. Your representative made his rounds on the train itself before we left, making sure you clients were set and where they were supposed to be. The ride was great, the cabin very comfortable, the train took off exactly on time and arrived exactly on time. We will use your services again in a heartbeat!

Very simple process. Was a little disappointed they chose the top berth for me when I’d have rather paid they extra to be on the lower, but alas it’s a small detail. The ticket office was across the street from the train station which I appreciated. Was able to get on the train 30+ mins early, the train staff set up all the berths. Was very clean and safe. Would definitely go through this process again.

This is a really fun, but not especially comfortable, way to travel. I’ve no regrets about doing it though, and if you’re even mildly up for an adventure I’d advise you to have a go. I’d have rated it higher but the lights in the carriage are left full on all night, which made it hard to sleep. And the toilets are pretty stinky, though I’ve seen worse. Still - give it a go! The 12Go Asia booking system worked really well - thank you.

Ticketing easy through 12goAsia. Overnight sleeper to Chaing Mai was fun. The seat/beds comfortable and the staff efficient in setting up the bunks for the evening. We were advised to eat before journey and take snacks. The restaurant car was reasonably priced but a limited menu from what I could see. Initially it was very cold enboard as the air con was set at around 21 degs, so take warm clothes, the lighting in the carriages is not dimmed at night.

This went much better than I thought.

With bathrooms that were clean and had toilet paper. Buying the ticket through 12Go was easy, and the pickup was easy, even though we picked up unannounced several days in advance.

We found our compartment easily 90 minutes before departure but it was small and cramped for 2 quite big people. Unfortunately we had no idea that there was a good meal available on board and had just desperately stocked up on the only available junk food and unfortunately eaten it!!!! Much regretted. The air con apertures were broken so we could not prevent this flow of freezing air chilling us all night. The small cotton blanket was insufficient but the towel was enormous for just a hand and face wash! And these were removed before we had finished using them! No WiFi as we had taken the old train to be more certain of catching it having returned from the islands that say.

We purchased our tickets online a couple days before the train ride. When we went to pick the tickets up at the office we were told we weren’t confirmed a place on the train and to wait until 12pm. At 12pm we were told to wait until 3pm and at 3pm we were told to come back an hour before departure. Finally, we were guaranteed our tickets. The train ride itself was quiet, smooth, clean and the staff were great! Only recommendation I have is that they dim the lights during the overnight train ride so it’s easier for people to sleep.

Train was spotless. Beds comfortable and no hassle from stewards trying to sell anything. As this is a new train, all the furnishings and appliances were in good order. The only downside was the A/C was freezing cold but nothing a light jacket or the included blanket couldn't solve. Journey was 13 hours and on time from Bangkok. Arrival was actually 10 minutes early. Not as easy to meet fellow travellers as this is a private 2 berth cabin with fully lockable door, but we had lively neighbours so we chatted and became friends... Definitely recommended as the best way to journey to Chiang Mai at a great cost.

We were in second class with a sleeper. The overnight air conditioning turned it into a deep freeze. I was wearing my down jacket with the hood up, and was covered with 2 blankets, and I still came down with a bad cold. During the night I grabbed a blanket from a bunk that was free and the next morning the porter charged 100baht for it. This was a very uncomfortable way to travel, too bad because it was cool to see the country side.

12goasia is a helpful operator. Smooth travel, both my wife and I (>1.80m) slept ok. Two minor improvements: Aircon was set quite cold but a sweater does the trick. The lights in the corridor shine into the upper berth, the curtain does not help much.

I've received an e-mail from 12go to pick-up the tickets. So I think I had to go exchanged 12go booking confirmation to a real ticket. I have brought this tickets for my customers so I was so worry about this. I went to the orrice and your staff told me it's not neccessary to exchanged to a real tickets!!!! I wasted my money for the round trip from my offic in chidlom and I wasted my time to go there for nothing. Just need you to clearify in your automatic e-mail. May you put the sentence "If you already have 12go booking confirmation, no need to exchanged to a ticket" that would be fine. all the rest is o.k., very good services from your staffs and you give people a chance to get the train tickets that's very good. Sincerely yours, Komkrit

The train ride was pretty good! The views were great and they fed us often. The only complaint I have is that the lunch they served us was too spicy to eat. I know it’s Thailand (and I can normally handle some spice) but it was 100% inedible. Besides that everything was good!

The train was pretty cool. I’ve never been on one and I honestly didn’t think that I would be able to sleep on one. Turns out that it’s pretty easy to fall asleep once the beds are folded out and the curtains are drawn. I enjoyed the experience overall. Just make sure you bring a sweater for when you’re sitting on the train because the cold air from the A/C blows right onto your head & neck. Although, once you’re ready for bed and the curtains are drawn, the curtains at least block the cold air from entering your bed space. So you could easily sleep with just a shirt and shorts.

First time sleeping overnight on the train And I have no complaints! Sleeping on the top berth was worth saving 50 baht. Except you have to wait till the person below you is awake in order to look out the window. At first I though I had to stay up top the WHOLE time but good thing I figured it out. They even have a restaurant on board (I packed snacks so I didn't have to buy anything). I highly recommend this type of transport.

It was OK. 13 hours to Chiang Mai would have been more pleasant if the train was warmer. It was cold outside and the staff had the AC on, blasting cold air into the train car, making it impossible to sleep. When asked for an extra blanket the staff member did not provide one, instead he turned off the AC but at that point I was already cold to the bone with a sore throat. Also, the staff kept the doors in between train cars open so it was noisy and disturbed sleep (if you had any).

We paid double the price of the tickets by getting a company to buy them for us but there was plenty of space on the train had we wanted to purchase them ourselves on the day. (This is a risk of course! Can’t always guarantee it won’t be busy - but there were several trains running through the night.) The compartment was cold and dirty (couldn’t change the air con) and we shared it with a family of cockroaches. The toilet is a hole in the floor (which you can imagine because progressively more messy and smelly through the journey!) Apparently train 9 is new and we went with train 13, the old sleeper train - dagnabbit!

Nothing we did not expect—except the freeeeezing cold. It was 11 hours traveling in an ice box. Not a pleasant experience. If I did it again, I would take the sleeper. The trains are reasonably clean, the toilets very much so. The view only starts to be different and interesting when you are two-three hours from Chiang-Mai. I am guessing that it will already be daylight on the sleeper train by that time.

I originally booked and paid for my son and I to be on what appeared to be a nicer train. Received a call the morning of departure and was told that there weren’t actually seats for us, and that we would be on what appeared to be a not as nice train, but that I would be refunded the difference. (which I was) I agreed, because what else could I do? We needed to get where we were going! Also the new train looked alright in the pictures. Unfortunately, the train we ended up on, looked nothing like those pictures. The berths were smaller, the train was much older, and the bathroom facility was a squat hole straight thru to the tracks below. On top of that, none of the amenities advertised were true. No outlets or lights in berths. No water or food available unless you paid extra. I am typically the least picky person in any given situation, and can deal with whatever level of comfort I am prepared for. In this situation however, I was misled, and therefore had higher expectations. I still appreciate the life experience, but I was sorely disappointed that it was not the experience I had hoped for.

The trip was amazing ! The express train (departing at 06:10pm) from Bangkok to Chiang Mai is comfortable and really clean, my partner and I have a wonderful experience and would recommend this train service to everyone. There is just one complaint related to the lights of the carriage, which are kept completely turned on thorough the trip, in order to make the journey more pleasant, they should turn off the lights partially or dimmer them. The booking process with 12Go Asia was flawless, everything went well and the pickup of the tickets on their office (close to Hua Lamphong station) was really fast ! Their staff is great as well !

The train was old and decrepit with an old repugnant toilet that smelled like nothing my nostrils ever encountered before. A nocturnal trip to the loo was a ghastly adventure. Also, we could not fall asleep the whole night because we were busy shivering under the blasting AC that could not be turned off. Save yourself a lot of time and trouble and fly to Chiang Hai. The price of a first class train ticket comes close to what you would pay for a plane. First class on train 13 is a nightmare, and not an adventure we had been expecting.

1st time on train to Chiangmai. Generally, sleeper car experience was fantastic! Some points to consider to improve: - Restaurant car list it's opening hours. - Wish the curtains have no gap as light comes through the gap - All the top bunks and lower back rests are dusty - would be nice to know before hand when to wake up so the attendant can make up the beds. Overall fantastic experience! Will do it again!

(FR) Tout d'abord, RAS quant au sérieux de 12go.asia. Réactivité, réponses rapides aux mails, bonne réception des billets de trains, etc... Sans aucun doute, je passerai de nouveau par cette agence! Concernant le trajet en train, c'est un must-do! Voyage fait en 2nde classe climatisée: lits corrects (quoiqu'un peu petit pour les grands comme moi), propreté OK, personnel très sérieux et amical (j'ai pu voir ds d'autres commentaires que ce n'était pas tjrs le cas, donc tout dépend en fait). Le gros moins (pour moi) : la clim qui est assez gênante (surtout pour 14h de voyages) mais rien d'insurmontable si vous avez prévu un pull ou une couverture en plus. Aussi, pour ceux que ça dérangerait, prévoir un cache pour les yeux car la lumière reste allumée tout le tps du trajet. Sinon malgré ces petits désagréments, RAS! Enjoy your trip!

Got all the info when purchasing tickets from online. Easy to pick up. Train was clean and there was food options. Slept okay. The train is well air conditioned so 21-24 degrees all the time, take a sweater. Lights are on allthe time in the train so made sleeping abit too difficult but nothing to complain. Was better that I thought.

The train trip was horrible! When we tried to sleep, we noticed at our beds cockroaches! We killed like 8 of them but there were a lot of cockroaches! We don’t know where they were coming from, it was like a nest of cockroaches! So we slept in one bed at the upper bed! When we tried to sleep, there was even at the upper bed a lot of cockroaches! We haven’t slept for a minute! It was disgusting and we are disappointed! When we told the person who helped making the bed, he said oh that is not good and didn’t do anything! We thought it would be clean and nice! We aren’t going to recommend this trip to anyone! We are really disappointed in you guys!

I love the sleeper trains in Thailand, but they've mostly all become air-conditioned and are way too cold, also they leave the bright florescent lights on all night so if you're in an upper berth you definitely need warm clothes and a blindfold. Bring back the second-class sleeper fan option!

I love travel by trains. The views were great, so was the food and drink service (an unexpected bonus), the archaic trains were charming, the rocking and bumping thrilling, good toilets and overall easy. Only negative was the Siberian wind blowing in from the A/C. It was constant and freezing, and we were right below it. You could tell everyone else was suffering too. Nobody prepares for sub-arctic chills in Thailand. I had on every layer in my pack haha. Anyway, I guess it added to the experience. Definitely recommended.

12Go Asia's service was perfect. The train is new, each seat has a power outlet (2nd class sleeper) and it arrived from Bangkok to Chiang Mai on schedule (13 hour ride). On the other hand, the AC kept working during the whole trip, keeping the temperature below 20 deg Celsius so many of us had long sleeves and pants - very cold and unpleasant. And like someone already mentioned, if you're taller than 1.80 you won't be able to fully stretch on the bed.

Beds are comfortable enough, hard to sleep solid because of the train noise and stops.. But a nice way to travel. To get to 12go, go to the train station and head down the escalator towards the subway. Take door one, you'll go back up an escalator and come out on the other side of the street, the DOB building is another 20m straight ahead and on your left. Skip the breakfast in the morning, it's not worth the 150baht.

Great experience for my family. 12Go set us up with adjoining first class cabins. Very easy ticket pickup and they met us on the train platform to make sure we got set up with every thing we needed. Each of us had our own bed and we slept well. The food in the dining car was very affordable, about $10 US for plenty of food and drinks. The line to order food was long, but the staff working the dining car was very fast. For westerners and those used to airport security, you'll be shocked by the complete lack of screening of baggage and people at the Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok. The only complaint we had is the temperature control system in our cabin did not maintain the temperature very well, it was hot then cold, hot then cold and there is no temperature control for the individual cabins. We also had some roaches in our cabin, probably due to the food waste in the trash bins. Overall, a wonderful experience and 12Go made it easy!

The train was delayed and only left at 11 PM, no one cared to inform us and when I asked at 9 PM which is already an hour and a half of a delay, they said they had an hour delay. I slept at the top bed and my girlfriend at the bottom, but we laid on the bottom bed together before leaving. The train's worker woke me up 3 times to ask if he can use my bed, I said no and when I got to the bed later I realized he literally stole my pillow. Other than that, the bed is okay, really cold, food is terrible and costy and bathroom is disgusting. Overall okay minus way to get around.

The journey started well, the train was clean and left on time. Great in car food and drink service and free however, we like the train staff had concerns about the carriage suspension. There were frequent stops to inspect it. For some unknown reason we reversed about 2 /3 miles then stopped for 75 minutes without information from staff. Arrived at Chiang Mai 2 hours late. May be that's normal for Thai railways (not the greatest train either)

Train trip in second class was better then i expected. I slept like a baby. I recommend to do not take upper sleeping place, my gf was a bit scared there. I was fine, it was comfortable. 12go asia proved to be perfect solution, they even gave me back some money cause of the price drop. Thats something what will never ever happen in my homeland.

Would've been the best point A to point B travel experience I've ever had except I was in a car full of older Thai ppl who all knew each other, and they stayed up until midnight yammering and laughing loudly, then they were up at 4:00am and right back at it. Impossible to block out the noise, so I only got 4 hours of sleep. Wish there were "quiet hours". Also I wish they'd turned the overhead lights off or at least down: thank goodness I had my eye mask ..it was. SO BRIGHT in there. Other than that, my compartment was cozy and practical and I think I would've been in heaven if it weren't for all the noise.

This is the second time I have used 12go and each time it has gone very smoothly. Picking up the tickets in Bangkok has proved straightforward. For this trip I had one slight gripe, their website permitted me to book a first class sleeper but in the event my tickets were for 2nd class, as 1st was already fully booked. I received a cash refund for the difference in price so no problem there. As it turned out 2nd class was fine on this occasion and I made new friends amongst my fellow passengers!

Nice, comfortable bed. I was lucky that the one plug in the train was next to my bed. The train left 45 min late, but that wasnt really a problem for me. The breakfast wasn't perfect. I asked for breakfast without meat, but there was still sausage on it. Luckily I could easily take it off the plate and just eat the egg and toast. Overal good train ride from Bangkok to Chiang Mai :) the sunrise, that I could see through the Massive window next to my bed, was amazing!

Picking up tickets was a breeze, the train staff were excellent and friendly. Sheets clean and slept well. Staff kept rowdy tourists under control which was nice or it could have been a long night. However, the toilet smells were awful all the way into the berth and train pretty old, but ok. Only a couple outlets which wasn't enough for the long ride and so many people. Too bad the food car is for smokers. Overall a decent experience.

Do not book with this agency! Relied on them when booking lower berth in a sleeper train which showed up as available( and more expensive) than upper berth. When I got on the train turns out they assigned me an upper one! Couldnt sleep at all, most horrible night thanks to 12go asia who didnt even let me know that they changed my ticket or confirmed if I am ok wjth upper berth or even offered a refund! Their poor excuse is that lower berth is sold out- well why would you list it up as available then on your website?!? Never again, not reliable at all!
12Go response:

Dear Guelcan Uluyurt,

I am sorry to hear that you did get the tickets you wanted. You have selected the alternative option 'In case no lower berths are available: please buy upper, or a combination' and we acted accordingly.
There were no lower berths available so we purchased you an upper berth.

The price difference between lower and upper berth, which is THB 50 in this case, will be returned to your credit card.

We took the 1st class sleeper and I can honestly say it was an absolute pleasure. The staff from collecting the tickets and on the train were very friendly and attentive. It was quiet and very comfortable. I would be rating this 5 stars if it weren’t for the faulty toilet lid which had to be held up whilst using it. I actually ended up using the squat toilet which was a lot cleaner and less smelly.

Sleeper Train #9 in 2nd class with A/C was a very clean and comfortable train. 12go were very helpful when booking tickets, picking up tickets and directing us on the platform. On this train however, only half the lights turn off at night which meant we slept with a light directly above us. Couldn't get much sleep, this completely defeats the point of a sleeper train. I was quite disapointed after experiencing total lights out on sleeper trains in China.
