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.

Starting from November 11, 2016 the SRT has used new train carriages.
The train also includes dining car, wheelchair elevators, airplane-style vacuum toilets, surveillance cameras, opened door alarms.
New train has electric outlets (220V) on every seat in both VIP Sleeper class and 2nd class sleeper AC cars.

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: $ 26.93

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the boarding pass is printed.

    Press refund button before 2019-01-24 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 16.83

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the boarding pass is printed.

    Press refund button between 2019-01-24 18:10 PM and 2019-01-26 18:10 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 5.05

  4. Cancel

    Amount to be refunded: ฿ 0

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 clean (including WCs) and good service. Air conditioner during the whole trip, advisable to take a sweater and to choose the lower berth, as on the upper one it's colder. They don't turn off the lights at night.

★★☆☆☆
The sleeper train was more spacious than we expected, and the staff were incredibly accomdating. However, the lights were left on all night which made it incredibly hard to sleep (especially if you were on the top bunk). Worst of all though, I woke up covered in bites from bed buds. I'm not sure if the sheets were cleaned or not but the after effect was not worth the price. Very disappointing.

★★★★☆
The sleeper train was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. They also have you preorder meals if you want dinner or breakfast and bring them to you. The one thing that would make the experience better is if the lights dimmed at night or shut off and there were smaller night lights because the privacy curtain on the top bunk does not block out any light and if it weren’t for my sleep mask I would not have been able to sleep.

Great ride and service. Everything was clean and organized. The meals we purchased were very hearty and delicious. Definitely worth the value. I would only recommend for the temperature to be a little warmer. Good thing I read about this in advance and came prepared with warm clothing. Also, the light could be dimmed at night. It was still pretty bright through the curtains, especially the top bunk. Luckily, I also came prepared with eye masks. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable experience.

Very happy with service from 12Go. Train journey was fun and surprisingly comfortable bunks, nice cool temperature too. Attendants helpful and efficient. Up on top bunk I was right under a light so would recommend an eye mask although it would be better if they could dim the main lights as each bunk has a reading light.

The train we took was the newer overnight train therefore the cleanliness was good even in the washroom. Staff was pleasant too. What could have been better was the curtain. It was a bit too thin and the lights were too bright that it barely does anything to cover, thus it was hard to sleep.

Booking the tickets on 12go was super easy, as well as picking them up. The two girls working were beyond nice and helpful. We had an upper and lower bunk, 2nd class with AC, Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The seats are a bit too upright because of how they must be folded down to be made into beds, but the beds are comfortable enough. Train #9 was modern and clean. The food was good, though the serving size a bit small for $210baht. Bring some food of your own, and sneak some beer on if you are so inclined, as they no longer sell any onboard. Just drink it on your bed with the curtains closed. Overall, a very easy trip from booking to finish. Only complaints would be the first-world variety.

The only thing that bothered me was the bright lights at night time which made it virtually impossible to sleep on the top bunk. The bottom bunk is shielded by the top bunk from the light but the light shines straight into the top bunk. The lighting could be reduced at night enough to let people go to the bathroom safely. Besides that, the trip was very enjoyable. Well organized.

The normal sleeper is fine. No need to go for the VIP sleeper as the UX is similar. In fact the VIP sleeper looks a lot more cramped in terms of space. If you have time, you can buy the F&B outside instead of the in-train dining. The menu is pretty basic and more expensive. We tried the in-train dining on the way to BKK and turned to 7-11 on the return trip :-). Good for 1st time experience but I plan to fly to Chiang Mai the next time I visit. It's good value for money if you wish to save money on accomodations for the night train :-)
