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 26.94

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2019-08-22 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 16.84

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

Great service and price, I recommend this for ANY traveler who is serious about getting a good experience. DO NOT book a bus ticket ! I met travellers who said the bus ticket sales guy had told them there were over 40 people sleeping per carriage ! This is true but it is pure luxury compared to the VIP bus !!

Arranging an picking up the ticket at 12go was very easy! It was definitely better and easier to use 12go then to go to/from the station from the center of Old Bangkok a second time. My 1st class ticket was unavailable so 12go helped me secure a 2nd class one. There is a charging outlet and privacy curtain in each 2nd class bay. Bags go under the seat (no lockers); I saw online (but not in person) that some people attach their bags to the under-seat rails using bike locks if you're paranoid. Only thing is the lights in the carriage never turn out, so bring an eyemask if you have one.

Great way to travel to Chiang Mai. The train is 2 hours slower than the train but the perk is you get a bed. Privacy curtain is great and beds are comfortable. Only downside is that they don’t switch the lights off at night so we had children running up and down the carriage all night and got no sleep. Other than that it was great.

Fantastische service.. tickets geboekt via 12go.asia. Hele schone, nieuwe trein, lekker eten aan boord besteld. Airco is wel erg koud ‘s nachts. Lange broek en trui geen overbodige luxe! Verder heel comfortabele manier van reizen. Onderbed is het fijnst, dan kun je naar buiten kijken. Bovenste bed heeft geen raam. Ook fijn dat je onderweg je apparaten met USB-stekker op kunt laden.

A great experience! Clean, spacious and, if anything, a little too well air conditioned. The staff at the 12GO Office opposite Hua Lamphong were really helpful. They even printed out tickets for future journeys which will save us a lot of time at Nong Kai in a few weeks.

Great experience. The DOB building was easy to spot. Camilla at the 12GO Office was super friendly and handed me my train ticket, explaining to me every thing I needed to know. The train ride was very enjoyable. Do take an extra jacket/blanket with you (the AC can be a bit chilly at night) and an eye mask/cover (you'll sleep better).

12GoAsia was great. Easy and good communication. I would have liked more insider knowledge explained on the website though...such as the information that the bright lights remain ON throughout the night train voyage, especially affecting the upper berths. Also, that on the train the train staff provides a menu with cheaper prices for Thai-speaking.

Loved the journey, kept constant updates on destinations arrival and the staff were amazing and patient. Would've liked a dimmer switch for the lights because I kept waking up and something to control the AC in a cabin as it got too cold at one stage and my friend got ill :( and everyone on my carriage seemed quite cold Otherwise food was great, beds were amazing (I ook a top bunk, perhaps fitting in larger pockets at the top to hold more stuff, because downstairs at least had a table too.

My only moan, and the reason I’ve not gone for top marks, is that the corridor lights are left on throughout the night which made it hard for me to sleep. If some sort of night lighting could be organised, like those the airlines use for night flights, then I would not hesitate to give five stars. So I’d recommend highly.... but bring your sleep mask!

Clean and comfortable and lots of fun! In-seat food service (not the dining car) was very tasty and we really enjoyed the experience. Upper berths are very light as the aisle light is directly adjacent to the curtain rail. Best to take a sleeping eye mask. Booking through 12Go was simple and stress free and we will definitely use them again.

The train ride was fun- we have two kids and great experience for them. We did 2nd class upper/lower bunks. Kids slept great - parents did not. We ordered a dinner meal- was overpriced for quality 210 baht- lots of plastic packaging- airplane food basically. Not worth it. Also- small size coffee and tea was 70 baht each. No refill. So bring your own food and drink Otherwise service was friendly- English of staff was good.
