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 26.00

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-11-16 18:10 PM Bangkok time (1 day left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 16.25

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-11-16 18:10 PM and 2018-11-18 18:10 PM Bangkok time (3 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 4.88

  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.

It's worth to do once, but 12-14 hours on train can be taxing. If you are massive and overweight, the toilets are like being inside of a jack-in-the-box crammed inside. Staff very friendly. Trains clean and modern.

De reis met nachttrein nr9 2e class viel heel goed mee. Wij gezin met zoon van 5 gebruikte de twee onderste bedden en lieten het bovenste bed onbeslapen. Het enige nadeel is het licht dat constant blijft branden. Neem een oogmasker mee! De temperatuur was OK en niet koud zoals wij overal lezen. ( Ik heb in mijn bloot bovenlijf zonder deken geslapen)

The train was very clean which was a plus. The main down side for me was I booked 2 bottom berths, got messed around and ended up with 2 upper which wasn't great as the bright lights were kept on the whole night and I didn't sleep.

Very comfortable journey on a very clean train. Bathrooms are clean and there's even an on-board restaurant. It's easy to sleep as the train rocks you. The lights are on all night, but u found that if you're tired, you will sleep. Great alternative to flying, great overall experience. Would recommend.

The experience was enjoyable but like other reviewers we found that the lights being left on all night seriously prevented getting much sleep. Even wearing an eye mask I only got a couple of hours sleep on the top bunk. This was disappointing as was otherwise a fun experience.

Fantastic! Easy to find the ticket office across from the train station. We booked a lower and upper and it was comfortable. A fun experience with lots of back packers along with us. Only thing was : Lights were on all night so an eye mask and ear plugs helped cause the train is loud.

Train was clean and pretty well kept, but SUPER uncomfortable seats and beds. Tossed and turned trying to get comfortable, but it’s like sleeping on a wooden board. They keep the lights on the entire time, so it’s very bright, very noisy and there’s SO many stops. Slept maybe two hours all night and regretting not just flying from BKK to Chiang Mai. Unless you need the nostalgic feel of a train ride, then definitely just take the bus or fly there, which are both cheaper options anyway.

As others have said, they never dim the lights and the curtains are gold and thin, so it's very bright all night. The light made it uncomfortable, but everything else was ok. Relatively comfortable. We got lucky to have quiet people in our car

Pressured to buy something for breakfast when did not want to. Lights never dim or go out making top bunk uncomfortable - bring blindfold. Our car was noisy due to large young group travelling together - luck of the draw. We travelled 2nd class. Overall it is pleasant enough but items above made me wish I'd flown.

Wonderful train journey. Opted for the second class sleeper so I was rather sceptical beforehead, however it was perfect. Very modern train, with reading lights and plug sockets. Also was so cosy at night and I had a great nights sleep. My booking with 12go Asia was also so easy - great service to book with.

Train was clean and there was plenty of space for luggage under the seats. Beds were comfortable and the staff were helpful and polite. Only down side was the lights are not dimmed during the night so a eye mask is recommended to get some good shut eye. Also tall people can be abit cramped in the beds.
