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.

Tickets Bangkok - Chumphon are released only 30 days in advance. It may happen that all tickets are sold out by that time because people booked long-distance trips (Bangkok - Lang Suan and further) which are released 60 days in advance. You can purchase tickets Bangkok - Lang Suan instead of Bangkok - Chumphon, so we will be able to buy them 60 days in advance and you simply leave train in Chumphon. The price difference between the station is only about 40 Baht (in the second class sleeper class).

Combo-tickets are available only to Chumphon. If you want to be sure to get your tickets 60 days in advance please do not book the combo, book your trip in two steps: Bangkok - Lang Suan train and Chumphon Train Station to the island.

Important note !
This train departs outside our office hours. You need to come at least one day in advance to get your boarding passes or use the shipping option, so we can send them to you by registered mail. There will be nobody at the railway station when your train departs!

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.

We booked this trip to facilitate travel to Koh Tao. 12goasia was very efficient and professional with booking the tickets online. The directions for ticket pick up in Bangkok were perfect. I would definitely use this booking process in the future. Train itself was acceptable. Ran approximately 1 hr late getting to Chumphon but from what I’ve read this is fairly standard for rail travel. Staff on the train were great and we were fed both a snack and a meal. Train is a bit dated/worn and there were some bugs/cockroaches seen on the floors and trays - again I feel this is quite standard for this climate.

Food provided. Pretty spicy but we like that! Nice and air conditioned. The only issues were a delay due to hitting something on the tracks and the tray table not being very clean. Both expected and definitely not the end of the world. Toilets were better then expected.

Great train ride air conditioning was very cold on the train. Given two meals first was a bread roll filled with green sweet custard. Second meal was lunch. It was mackerel in tomato sauce and a very hot chicken curry with rice and cup of water. Thai people wolves it down. I managed to eat half then ran out of water. This was the express train and by 4 stops ever seat was taken so you need to book. Train arrived half an hour late due to train delays on route. An interesting and enjoyable trip and would do again.

My plane to Chumphon and I was in Myanmar, so it was very convenient to be able to purchase the ticket online. Great service, but pricey.
