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 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 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.

I am 6ft (185cm) and the lower berth fitted me almost exactly and was very comfortable. The staff at 12go were also very helpful with my prior questions. Do not go for an upper berth if you are tall as it seems to be a squeeze. A guy next to me couldn't fit and he was similar in height to me. The bus and boat was very efficient . The only thing I hate is the times of everything. You get off the train at 415am and why until 545 for the bus to the ferry which takes 30 mins. Then the ferry takes about 90 mins but everything ran smoothly.

Great experience, nice staff, comfortable seats/beds. A little warning on the food though, it's relatively expensive and you get a very very small portion of food - mostly rice. Bring some food with you if you are decently hungry.

Absolutely fantastic service, from the online assistance to the friendly office staff, helpful at all stages. The journey was great, sleeper carriages clean and quiet, 1st class gives you a bit more space to move around and darker when wanting to sleep however second class beds are wider and curtains give privacy, trains on time and connections easy. Great value for money.

12goAsia staff were very helpful. Train was delayed at least 3 hours due to engine failure (from what I heard), but finally got underway. Missed the Chumphon shuttle but luckily got ride from a couple with car and just arrived at ferry at the last minute. The 2nd class sleeper was awesome for me, I am short! ???? So much better than sitting up all night...

Everything was well organised and clean. Bit of waiting around when you alight at Chumphon. The train ifyoure in an upper berth is impossible to sleep in as it’s far too light. If you can’t get a lower berth save money and just take the bus.

Good train, good organisation accept the transfer with the bus to the fairy: when we asked them were to go to Koh Tao the man showed us a bus, but in the end it was the wrong bus driving to another pier. The people working there should look at our reservation cards and not just showing us one of the different busses! In the end a van picked us at the wrong pier & brought us to the right one with the right fairy we booked, but that was really on time. Accept this stress and bad organisation at the Chumphon station everything was good.

Very easy to find the 12go office in Bangkok. Staff were efficient and had a good command of English. The 12go office is directly outside Silom MRT. The train ride itself was quite pleasant. The sheets for the bed were clean and the train staff were helpful. The top bunk had limited space however was still acceptably comfortable. The toilets however were dirty and cramped. I would recommend bring some ear plugs as there was a crying baby in one of the bunks near me which disturbed my sleep during the night. The bus arrives directly outside Chumphon station. The bus and the ferry ride to Mae Haad were very comfortable and professionally managed.

The night train was good. Not luxurious, but ok. A long journey, but we could sleep most of the time. We prefer it to the bus. When arriving a bus waited to take us to the boat. Good. The boat was ok, but I recommend to sit as low as possible due to often heavy sea. You need to take something against seasickness before!
