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 ticket is confirmed.

    Amount to be refunded: USD 26.16

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the ticket is confirmed.

    Press refund button before 2019-05-27 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 16.35

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the ticket is confirmed.

    Press refund button between 2019-05-27 18:10 PM and 2019-05-29 18:10 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 4.90

  4. Cancel

    Amount to be refunded: THB 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.

The overall experience with 12goAsia was excellent, as on previous occasions - both online booking and pick-up at their office. Their staff is very nice and friendly. The ride itself to Chiang Mai was good, smooth and pretty silent. The staff was nice and helpful, whereas the temperature throughout the journey was at 23 degrees, according to the screen, so ideal. The downside was that we got our seats right by the door (seats 3&4), which meant we woke up quite often to the sound of people passing by. For people sleeping on the upper berth I suggest getting eyeshades as the lights remain turned on throughout the night and it's pretty bright up there. For even more comfort I recommend earplugs as well. Overall it's a very nice experience and an affordable one, too.

The train ride was great. We were in cabin 5 and the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was so tasty! I thought there was wifi on the train but there was not. The only issue was that the train was quite brightly lit up over night so hard to sleep. 12go Asia ticket service was so easy to use.

12go Asia were very good and helpful. The views were great when the sun came up but there were a few negatives: the lights made it difficult to sleep (take eye mask), the train was surprisingly noisy on its tracks (take ear plugs), and the corridor was quite cold at first but I think the air con gets switched off as it got warm at night. I slept very little, and couldn’t stretch out as I’m over 6’ tall. It was also annoying to have a shared space when there were empty berths elsewhere on the carriage.

Everything about my experience travelling from Bangkok - Chiang Mai was amazing. Booking through the 12Go website was effortless, the ticket exchange process was explained in an email and was a simple and easy transaction + a free bottle of water! Hua Lamphong train station has all the snacks you could possibly want for your ride, information staff were friendly and helpful, and our train was on time and was clean and as advertised. We had dinner in the train station and it was very cheap and simple. A dinner menu was available on the train, but was much more expensive. I must make special mention of our car attendant. He was so helpful, friendly, and enthusiastic. I would not hesistate to recommend this trip to anyone wanting to travel to Chiang Mai. Such a reasonable price for an awesome experience combining your travel and accommodation needs.

First off, 12Go was fantastic. Very easy to book and easy pick up etc. The train journey, not so much. We travelled 2nd class, night train from BKK to Chiang Mai. Having travelled extensively on Indian trains, I did not expect to find this journey uncomfortable, but how wrong I was. The good: the new trains are well designed, clean and should be comfortable. The staff are helpful. The bad: I am really surprised by the reviews that said the A/C was cold. I was prepared for that, and found exactly the opposite. They actually switched off the A/C between 2 am and 6 am. The privacy curtains are v insulating, so I was just boiling and sweating all night, so much so that I had to open the curtains to try to sleep. Also, I had seat #3, which is right next to the door. It was constantly opening and the staff were chatting VERY loudly all night. They also never switch off the lights. As a result, I had about an hour of sleep in snatches. Tips: if you have a say in it, do NOT book a berth near the door. Get eye shades, ear plugs and the coolest clothes you can find. I don't think I'll be doing this again.

I highly recommend using Go Asia to book your train tickets, very easy and worked out well. We are a family of 5 so booked 2nd class sleeper from Bangkok to chiang mai and loved it. Very clean and comfortable, on-time and we all slept well. Do take a sweatshirt as can get chilly with air-con.

I was hesitant to take the night train at first. I was worried for my belongings and personal comfort on the train. I was surprised to learn that it is wonderful. I'm pretty low maintenance but I loved travelling this way. It was very easy, full of like minded travellers, and comfortable enough. Once I was on the train I was very relaxed, made friends, and all worries about my luggage disappeared. Please note: AC is very cold, bring layers, lights left in all night, and many stops might disturb a lighter sleeper. Bring ear plugs, travel pillow or cushion for added comfort in seats, and eye mask if needed. Recommend 100% for budget travellers.

A really seamless process - booked with 12go Asia a while back, received all confirmation via email, we collected the tickets from the ticket office an hour before the train left which was really easy and they were very helpful.

Was completely comfortable traveling alone as a female, in 2nd class. Dinner/breakfast packages for sale at an okay price by a super nice lady, which they brought to you. The wide seats (almost enough for two) were turned into beds swiftly with fresh sheets around 21.00, with wake up around 06.00. Bed were decent enough (for what they are) but the journey is quite shaky so expect to wake up a couple of times. Bring a sweater for the AC and an eye mask as the lights stay on all night. Also recommend you to get the bottom bunk for easy access and as the top bunks curtain blocks out some of the light for you. The train itself (No. 9) was clean and modern with a good "western" toilet. I would recommend this train! :D

This journey really exceeded my expectations! The seats were huge and when the staff converted everything into beds, it was done so quickly and efficiently! I was in the upper bunk and had just about enough room and was glad to have a blanket and pillow. (Bring some warm clothes as the AC can get a bit chilly for some.) Also would suggest bringing a sleep mask, as the lights are not turned off at night. There were enough toilets, so didn’t have to queue. The food was okay on the train. Was wonderful to see the sun rise over the Thailand countryside in the morning! Great place to meet other travellers! Would definitely recommend the night train!

It was super easy to pick up the tickets and we could board the train an hour before we set off to make ourselves comfortable. Train staff were excellent and very friendly, the toilets were clean and the food was good. Don’t be afraid of the ‘spicy’ option on the menu (not translated) as it’s not that hot. The kids had the upper bunks but couldn’t sleep because of the light so we ended up swapping and didn’t sleep too well. Wish we’d read the comments here so we could have prepared!

Important - get lower berth! There's less light, it is warmer and there is more space. Even if you're travelling as a couple - it will be more comfortable for both of you to sleep on the lower berth. We had booked lower and upper, and the person sleeping at the upper berth was much less satisfied than the one on the lower berth. Otherwise, an incredible service, really worth taking! There's no WiFi, but there are plugs :)

A brilliant service from collection to getting off in Chiang Mai. They put the tourists in one cabin and everyone was so friendly which made me feel less nervous. Toilets were clean, beds were simple but sleepable. Only negative is that they don’t turn off or even dim the harsh bright lights on the train which makes it difficult to relax and fall asleep. Definitely bring an eye mask and earplugs as the train whistles throughout, but you get used to it. Decent food. Would definitely take the sleeper again on future trips and the 12go service was very professional and straight forward.

As a sleeper in the top bunk there is no blocking the light. If lights could be dimmed throughout the train or a low blue or red bulb was given it would make a huge difference. Coffee is way too over priced for the amount given and undrinkable. No milk or sugar could save it. 4 or less oz cost 70bht. Left it on the train. The staff was amazing. Very professional and friendly. Let us decide when we wanted out bunk done up to sleep and woke us nicely in the morning.
