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.
  • It is possible to change the passport details after making the purchase.
  • 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 90 days before the departure for long-hauls and 30 days for short routes (e.g. Bangkok <-> Chumphon). If your departure is in more than 90 (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 bus transfer + ferry tickets are included. You will receive them along with the train tickets.
  • At Chumphon trainstation you will be met by Lomprayah ferry stuff and transfered to the Tung Makham pier. Here you will wait for your ferry to Koh Tao, that departs approx at 07.00am.
  • There is a lovely cafe on the Tung Makham pier that opens at 05.00-05.30am, where you can enjoy fresh made coffee and bakery watching at ocean sunrise! Dream, innit?
  • The ferries are new and comfortable, with inside and outside seating as well as a small cafe selling drinks and snacks. Many passenger opt to head straight for the top sun deck to enjoy the views of the many islands set within the Gulf of Thailand visible on the way to the mainland.
  • 20kg of luggage is allowed per person. Excessed charge 20THB/kg. Limit is 50kg.
  • Hint: if you need taxi to your hotel, there will be a lot of taxi drivers at the pier.
    But just wait 15-20 minutes after ferry arrived and walk 100 metres from pier and prices for taxi services may be two times lower!

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.

Very well organized. You get reminders and clear instructions. Service staff knows what to do, where to send you and does it well. And people complaining about the train, research more. We knew what to expect and besides two very loud Dutch girls in the opposite booth it was a pleasant journey.

12go Asia is the easiest way to book Thailand train tickets. They kept sending reminders about the trip and instructions were clear. Their staff can communicate in English and do a great job at explaining the itinerary. They can possibly start ticket shipping services to avoid in person ticket collection.

Great service, was pleasantly surprised at the standard of all the transport! The beds on the train were comforable alhtough really bright as the lights are on all night so bring a facemask! I had the top bunk which was fine for me as I'm not too big but he bottom bunks are much more spacious, so opt for that if you have the option, The transfers all went really smoothly, Some people complain about the extra time between train/bus transfer, however it worked in our favour as the train took 45 minutes longer than expected meaning our journey still arrived on time and we had a shorter stopover. The staff at 12go were really helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Only downside was sleeping in the train since they keep the lights on and the track is bumpy so it's a constant rattle in your bed. Also, do not take the upper bed if you are taller than 170 cm ????

Was told by 12go staff we would be arriving at 10:45. I told them that this was impossible unless we were changing at Chumphorn, but we were changing at Surat Thani. Luckily I had done my research and knew that they were wrong so I was able to arrange my transfer vehicle for the right time, which was 11:45. The boat also had very poor seating with literally no space for our modest sized legs. The train was fairly good.

Tout est tres bien organisé. Le personnel efficace vient installer les couchettes et vous fait votre lit !.il est possible de commander a diner dans le train, ou d'acheter un plat aux vendeurs ambulants ( peu nombreux). Seul bémol : les nuits sont fraiches.la petite couverture est insuffisante. Artives a destination, vous etes pris en charge pour les trajets de bus et de bateau.bref , voyage facile et agreable.

Night Train 2 nd class AC was clean & comfy, train guard was friendly. Train left on time but the bus to take us to the ferry was late. They make you wait an hour so you can have breakfast at the cafes outside the train st. We were due to arrive at 1045 onto Phangan but arrived around 12.

Very nice, we did have earplugs and a mask but didn't use them. Staff makes your bed really good. This was 2nd class. If you want more privacy book 1st class, then you have your own cabin. For us this was perfectly fine.

Hello, everything worked well, except that we got the wrong tickets for the ferry in your office in Bangkok. We recognised it too late. We had the ticket for Koh Tao instead of Ko Phangan. We had to pay 1200 Bath for our real destination. Do we get the money back? Thanks a lot and warm regards, Carmen
