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: $ 25.36

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-12-12 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 15.85

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-12-12 18:10 PM and 2018-12-14 18:10 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 4.76

  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.

Comfortable and well equipped train. Need eye masks as they do not put lights off or even dim them which is a pity. Used ear plugs to cut noise. We took our dinner and some fruit for breakfast as meals are expensive on board and poor quality (we heard prior to our trip) Staff are not very friendly when you do not buy food or drinks; greeting and welcome is pretty poor too and very unlike Thai culture. Staff (and there are lots of them) seem to be too busy rushing around to actually engage with guests unless you are buying something! Lots of sideways rocking of train on the journey made it difficult to fall asleep or get comfortable. So very tired at end of journey. Left half an hour late but arrived on time. Toilets very clean at beginning but very messy at 4.30 am, no toilet paper and not cleaned. Would prefer to travel on day train next time and enjoy the scenery which we saw nothing of. Booking of ticket and staff at 12go.asia was fantastic in their service processing tickets for us and when we picked them up.

Brilliant overnight train, the staff was friendly made out the beds super quick and felt very safe as a solo traveller. Would definitely recommend just for the experience alone. Before I forget the air con is super powerful so make sure you bring additional layers to keep warm.

Four hours delay, no compensation, not even a bottle of water or complimentary drink; Provided breakfast was the worst food we experienced in Thailand, processed meats, unripe pineapple, factory muffin and total was overpriced; Service was sub-standard, the bed-installer was rude and grumpy and refused for us to use the pillow after he stowed away the bed; food server ran out of pre-ordered cocoa, but delivered anyway later when we insisted, our ordered items totaled 360 baht, she made it 380 baht and then tried to short-change 100 baht when we paid with 1000 baht bill, but she kept on smiling, just tried to steal a little bit? This was a good train as equipment, but disappointing service. Train #9 on Dec 6, 2018, car 4

The ticket pick-up system was great. Staff were really friendly and offered me a 100bht refund as they couldn't get the lower berth I wanted, they gave me a much needed free bottle of water too, Train was nice, and while it was delayed by 4 hours it gave me a chance to make some friends. Food was OK but overpriced, breakfast should be, bed was pretty comfortable but the lights are left on so bring an eye mask. Overall will definitely use again

I give the number 9 express train experience 5 starts because it was very easy to collect tickets, everyone very nice and helpfu and everything was very clean! Awesome experience, the only thing I would complain about is the fact the lights stay on ALL night long and are VERY bright and people very loud, the locals on the train started talking very loud from 3.30am and they didn't go to sleep until about 11pm so it was hard to sleep but I suppose it's all part of the experience. Have fun xxxx

Everything was just great! Ticket pickup was easy. Boarding was smooth and pleasant. Services on the train were great. Train and toilet were very clean. In fact, passageway was cleaned twice as were toilets. Bed set up was fast and efficient. Charging plugs, comfortable seats, even the train food was decent and reasonably priced. As to some others complaints —- prepare for your trip! Temperature is set in the car for 22 C. Dress and plan accordingly. One pillow bottom sheet and one medium blanket are provided. If you need more, bring it! Lights stay on in passageway so bring eyemask and ear plugs if light or sound bother you.

Smooth booking system, friendly and efficient staff when picking up the ticket. With regards to the sleeper car, it is arguably the best experience so far. If I have to complain about something, it is the bed being just a little too short to allow my body to fully stretch out while asleep. I am around 186cm tall for reference.

Our train departed and arrived as scheduled. We were happy to see that the cart was clean and service was great. Sheets were a bit stained, but seemed cleaned. Only complaints are that the AC is WAY too cold and each passenger only gets a single thin blanket. Be sure you have layers, we put on a scarf and fleece and were still freezing. They also do not dim the lights at any point, so if you are sensitive to light, even with the curtains blocking your bunk it is hard to sleep. However, it's a super cost effective way to travel and overall these complaints are quite minor.

I hope some staff are considerate in keeping their voice low esp in the common area (ie. washroom). They were talking too loud which woke some of us up and still continued doing so even after giving them an upset look. I havent gone back to sleep til after a few hrs later. The lights should have been dimmed a bit also during some hours. Overall, it was an OKAY experience.

It was the most convenient trip ever! From booking online to claiming my ticket to boarding the train in Bangkok and getting off in Chiang Mai. The cars are clean and the sheets they put on the beds are fresh and clean too! The beds are comfortable, the toilets are clean and do not smell. They even had food too but I decided to bring my own. The only thing to make this trip perfect is if they dimmed the lights a bit at night. Thank you 12Go. You are awesome!

My husband and I took the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai earlier this week. The train left and arrived on time. Workers made the beds around 8pm. Air conditioning was a bit cold so we stayed in long pants and a sweater and the lights aren’t turned off at night. Toilets were clean. Otherwise it was a comfortable ride.

This was our first time on a sleeper train, anywhere in the world. The experience was superb from the cleanliness of the train to the efficiency of the guy who made our beds (2nd class coach). The staff constantly come round to collect any trash, the floor was swept on several occasions and the toilets always had ample soap, toilet paper and paper towels in them. We ordered dinner and breakfast for a nominal amount. It was good to have coffee served when waking up at 6.00 am. I was surprised how quiet the rail car became once the beds were made up for night, and people retired into their curtained ‘pod’. I’d also like to give a shoutout to the staff at goAsia, who were efficient and pleasant, when collecting out tickets from the office.
