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.

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: USD 25.43

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-08-23 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 15.90

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-08-23 18:10 PM and 2018-08-25 18:10 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 4.77

  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.

Fabulous service from 12go.asia. Would definitely use again! It would be great if there could be a safe, lockable left luggage storage facility, either at Hua Lamphong station, or if 12go could offer this as an extra! Overnight train was very clean, safe and comfortable - freshly cooked food available at the station to take board was fab too! The only thing which spoilt the journey was the lights being left on all night - makes it very hard to get a good nights sleep. Other than that, fantastic

Really impressed with this journey. Train was very clean and modern with excellent facilities. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. Agree with earlier comment re eye masks and earplugs but we still didn’t get much sleep at all!! The train is noisy and bumpy and stops along the way but felt safe and secure and we loved it for the experience and the views coming into Chiang Mai. Recommend eating in the lovely 12Go cafe before the train and after collecting your tickets! Had breakfast on the train which was basic and not exactly cheap but coffee was very welcome!!

We had seats in air conditioned 2nd class, air con fairly high but we’d been warned to take extra layer so weren’t cold. Seats were spacious and turned into firm but comfortable beds. Enough room underneath for a fairly large suitcase each. Food was ok, and train very clean. Only improvement would be to dim the main carriage lights at night, your bed has a curtain but doesn’t really keep the light out. Ps very good service from 12GoAsia

The train is safe and secure and, for 2nd class, each person gets a nice little space to tuck away in. The food was pretty good - nothing special, but I’ve had worse food on planes. Definitely try for a bottom bunk - upper bunks don’t have windows, have to climb, and you don’t have to dig beneath the person on the bottom if you need something from your bag. You get a full flat bed in 2nd, with curtains for privacy - but bring an eye mask (the lights are on full all night) and ear plugs (the train and people in the car are loud). Also the bed is super hard and the train makes frequent stops that woke me up. The view in the morning coming into Chiang Mai is amazing - hills and jungles with the sun rising. And it was nice to cover hotel stay and travel in one low price.

Exceeded our expectations. Clean. Comfortable. Efficient. Felt like you were on the Hogwarts Express. A/C was perfect (at least on the lower bunk). Staff was friendly. Food was decent. There was a dining car but we didn’t check it out. Our dinner and breakfast was chosen from a menu and delivered to us at chosen times. There’s also a snack cart that came around. Outlets worked. Windows on the bottom were nice to see the landscape. Bathrooms were clean and adequate. Can’t wait to travel by train again!

After travelling on a night train in Vietnam and finding out that it’s an open carriage I wasn’t expecting much . However the beds are spacious and comfy (for a train) and all the facilities were clean and tidy. The air con can get cold so bring a jumper and an eye mask as they leave the lights on all night (I’m assuming to deter thiefs) . I felt perfectly safe being a single female traveller the only thing is if you’re taller than 170cm you can’t fully stretch out as the beds aren’t very long.

Leuk avontuurals alternatief voor een reguliere vlucht. Hadden ruim 25 jaar geleden al eens deze trip gemaakt en nu met de kinderen overgedaan. Slaaptrein was een wat nieuwere uitvoering met airco. Stoelen zitten heerlijk. Na een uurtje of 2 wordt de stoel omgebouwd tot bed. Voor mij (184m) erg krap maar voor een nactje te doen. Matrasje is aan de harde kant. In de vroege ochtend gewekt en klaar een ons verblijf in Chiang Mai

You would have probably read a lot of reviews about the trains that said "bring extra layers it's cold at night"... Well as soon as you walk on the train you start shivering and rummaging round tour bags for jumpers and socks. Everyone that walked on said "Woah I know they said it was cold but" ... The temperature inside is 21 degrees. the seats on the train are big and comfy you could almost fit 2 people on each seat (you wouldn't but you could as there is enough room) we bought food on the train, we ordered from the set menu and it was 210baht each. You get 2 x different main courses, 1 soup, 1 rice, some fruit and a banana cake for that price. The food is ok and filling and warms you up! Although they did say nothing was spicy and the Duck Red curry was incredibly spicy... You could buy breakfast on the train too at (I think) 170 baht each but we didn't buy it. The guard comes round about 8pm to do the beds,he's so quick and very efficient. Beds are comfy, the top and bottom bunk "sleeping matts" are the same width but the bottom bunk does have some extra space towards the wall. The top bunk is a lot colder as the A/C is closer and is also a lot brighter as you're closer to the lights. the toilets are cleaned regularly throughout the journey and they come through and clean and mop the floors in the carriages as well which is nice. the train itself is silent, the only noise is from the wheels on the tracks. The lights in the carriages aren't dimmed at any stage throughout the night. the guard comes and Wales you up at 6am so he can turn the beds down- they then bring breakfast round to those that ordered and ask you to check all luggage before leaving the train (I imagine this is in case of any theft throughout the night). i slept with my "hand lugggae" size backpack in the bed but left my big rucksake under the bottom bunk and it was safe all night. there is room under both seats to place suitcases of all sizes (if pushed under from the front if that makes sense, where your feet go effectively) and no one will get them out easily from the side- into the walkway- when the beds made as that area has a smaller gap under the seats.. This may not make sense but it will when you're on the train!:) all in all it was a great experience and I would do it again! :)
