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.

Train #51 has electric power outlets (220V) near seat number: 5, 6, 9, 10, 29, 30, 33 and 34.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Chiang Mai #51

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 20.30

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-09-25 22:00 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 12.69

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-09-25 22:00 PM and 2018-09-27 22:00 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 3.81

  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 started all quite easy by picking up the tickets and the train was in time, but already when we wanted to sleep they didn’t put of the light or lower it, so that in the upper bed it was really light and hard to sleep but still all acceptable. Then at 5.30h we got woken up after just half the way with no proper explanation. We had to get off the train and got send to „one“ bus, cause appenrently there was an accident in the train station in front of us, which someone found out after a while. So after 30 min we got on the first bus and the other passengers had to wait. With no further explanation we thought we will stay on the bus now, but then we stoped again after nearly three hours and had to change back to the train. Still no person to talk to or any information. Obviously our booked seats with AC where irrelevant, what meant that we ended up in the lowest class with fan, wich was really extremely hot and even though I understand that such things happen there was not even a “sorry” or a refund and after 1 min they came around and started selling orange juice and food. I would have perhaps at least expected complementary water or tea/ coffee, but it just went on as if nothing had happend! We paid quite a lot for these tickets (ca 65€ for two) and therefore the service was horrible and I could have also taken the bus and would have saved me probably half the money, for the fact that I was in the bus when I was meant to sleep in a bed anyway. Very annoying trip!

Nice train ride. With time to watch rice fields and cornfields along the tracks. Bring your own breakfast, because breakfast on board is possible, but relatively pricy 170-190 baht. And quality is not what we are used to as foreigners. Although ricesoup is actually quite tasty.

Quite an adventure in a very old train with squat toilets, but that is because only the 10 pm train had sleeping berths available. But it certainly felt atmospheric! And I slept surprisingly well. Very easy to book and get tickets with 12go. Helpful staff. Taxi could not find office building. Maybe get the office address in Thai? Enjoy!

The train trip was really pleasant. 12Go team in bangkok was accomodating in picking up the tickets. Be aware that alcholoh is not allowed or served onboard. Stewart will offer you drinks and food without telling you price ahead of time, so ask what it is. if you have ordered breakfast, you will be woken up when the breakfast is ready, and your bed folded away. Overall great journey!

14 hour overnight train ride from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. Had a good night sleep. Sleeper train bed was clean and comfortable. A/C was cool. Staff was nice. Gave them only 4 stars because they need to upgrade their toilets to one where you can sit instead of squatting. Also need to put electrical outlets for phone charging. I will take this train again when I come back to Chiang Mai.

Super easy - just arrive at the station and the ticket office is opposite. A bit of a nightmare to cross the roads. Train very comfortable, nice view in the morning. Bring water, snacks, ear buds and an eye mask (train fairly loud and lights stay on). I got the late train so I could sleep over night. Go for a lower cabin as the beds are bigger and you have a window!

The online booking service and picking up the tickets the day before was perfect! Very easy and efficient service. The train ride was okay however very loud even with ear plugs and the mattress in the top bunk easily moves so that you might fall if you're a restless sleeper like me. It is quite cold even with a jumper but as long as you close the curtains it usually keeps the heat in. I didn't have any food but bring some snacks to keep you going. The toilets were more like a pit latrine but had toilet paper. All in all I think it's a good cheap way to travel to Chiang Mai.

For whatever reason the 2nd class sleeper was an older model not the one I'm told is usually on the train. Only squat toilets and a loose door that slammed repeatedly through the night whenever the carriage rattled. Train staff felt the need to have some sort of shouting match around 3am in the porter's area too.

Air con on all the time so suggest bringing socks to keep the feet warm. Very nice crisp, clean white cotton set on the bed and a lovely soft all cotton blanket. Nice pillow, too. Eye mask and ear plugs made my trip more pleasurable and I slept through the night. Nice sense of privacy in lower bunk and plenty of room. Only disappointment is that the 6 oz. cup of drip coffee was 60 baht which is what you would pay for a good cup of espresso at a nice coffee shop in Chiang Mai.

Lower bunk in 2nd Class AC was a good experience. Not too cold and more space than the top bunk. Didn't try the breakfast (140-190+ THB). After 8 am you wake up with breakfast being served, and around 10 am they convert the beds into seats. Overall a decent sleep, though there were bugs crawling on the walls every now and then... Polite staff, and we arrived near the estimated time.

If you get a top bunk make sure you take warm clothes or extra blankets and take ear plugs as the air con it’s fully on and makes for a chilly journey. I would also recommend taking eye mask as the train lights are left on all night and isn’t covered by the top beds curtains. If you gets a bottom bed you have nothing to worry about, it’s a very pleasant journey. I recommend paying the extra for a bottom bed to get a good nights sleep. Also be careful as a breakfast menu will be presented asking what you would like in the morning, but it’s not free and you do have to pay.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The trip from Bangkok to Chiang Mai by the night train was comfortable, the train was clean, there were wc and sinks, they also offered breakfast for additional fee (however we did not try it). The upper sleeping place was good, though a bit too cold at night because of the air conditioner. The lower sleeping place was also good, it is a little bit more expensive but you have a window.
