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 25.73

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-09-24 18:10 PM Bangkok time (1 day left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 16.08

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-09-24 18:10 PM and 2018-09-26 18:10 PM Bangkok time (3 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 4.83

  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.

My experience on this train wasn’t the best. Most the staff were stand off ish and rude. On my first train to Chiang mai, I asked multiple people for a blanket because I was really cold. They kept saying one moment then not coming back so I got up and followed them to ask if I could just quickly get a blanket. He proceeded to my seat and right above me was the blanket. I wondered why no one could have just simply got that for me in the first place seeing as it was right there. I asked one too many tines I guess (I asked this gentleman twice) and then as I’m mumbling under my breath he tells me to shut up. I had a long day in the pouring rain and just wanted a blanket I don’t think it warrants rude behaviour seeing as I paid for a first class seat. We got into it but he eventually came back and apologized, as did I. The rest of the ride everyone was very nice to me. Unfortunately though, a train in front of us got derailed so we were stuck on the train in the same spot for 4/5 hours. They had to get a bus to transfer everyone to lampang , then we’d hope on the train from lampang to Chiang Mai. Well the buss was completely packed obviously, then 15 minutes into the ride the air conditioning “breaks” so we are 30+ bodies in a bus going 60km am hour at most . It was not fun. At this point I hadn’t eaten since the night before (7pm when I first got on the train) and I had used up my 1 free tiny complimentary water. Once we got on the next train to get to Chiang Mai I ordered dinner again. It is 210baht for dinner, I gave her 500baht, she gave me 280 change (keeping 10 baht for herself) I didn’t mind this at first because I’m not going to complain about 10baht, that is like 30cents in my country. Anyway after I receive my food I ask one of the other ladies if I could get a small water. She starts yelling saying you only get one no more . I was trying to explain that I’m not even supposed to be on this train because my train has been delayed 6hours and all I’m asking for is a small water bottle . I don’t think that was such a big deal seeing as I never complained once about this huge, sweaty inconvenience. They literally refused to give me a water bottle so I said to the lady okay fine, give me my 10 baht that you owe me since you want to be rude like that, and she goes ahead and gives it to me. I did tell them I still want a water bottle, they said it is 20baht . I waited at my seat for one of them to bring it when my neighbour gave me her water bottle . Very kind of her. 10 minutes goes by and the worker passes me without water.... I guess they forgot ? Lol really unimpressed by the service . *side note, I also tried to get the lady’s attention and ask how to put my tray back down and she looked at me completely ignored me and kept walking. Not sure what I did to deserve such rude service , and I would have thought since i paid for a better class that I’d be treated with respect. Guess not.

The carriages appear to be new and the berths at least as comfortable as a business class sleeper seat although not so comfortable when in day seat mode. A surprisingly good meal in the restaurant car for 280 Baht although a beer to wash it down would have been appreciated. Overall, a very good service,

The sleepertrain from Bangkok toerisme Chiang Mai is a very good way to travel. A bit cold because of airco. Tried to book a fan was not possible at 12goAsia. Next time will book directly on station the day before leaving. Also will save me a lot of money. I paid like BAHT 1500 for a 1040 ticket.

The booking process was very easy as was the pick up at the 12goThailand office. The train was on time, clean and operated by very friendly and helpful people. As for the chance of improvement I would agree with the other commenters: the bright light shone through the thin curtains. If the lights can’t be dimmed for safty reasons maybe propped black-out curtains would be an alternative. Otherwise I would gladly recommend the sleeper train.

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.

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.
