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.

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 ticket is confirmed.

    Amount to be refunded: $ 21.24

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2019-04-26 22:00 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 13.28

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2019-04-26 22:00 PM and 2019-04-28 22:00 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 3.98

  4. Cancel

    Amount to be refunded: ฿ 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.

Comfortable trip. Beds were surprisingly comfortable and it wasn’t too loud - the noise of the train drowns out the sounds of people during the night. Earplugs are recommended though and the workers do start coming around about 7am making noise! Didn’t try the breakfast, took our own food and drink with us. All in all not a bad experience at all - much better than we thought it would be!

The train was more than fine. I was happy I could sleep. The lower bed is a must though, less cold, bigger and you have a window. I slept trough everything. Woke up in the middle of the night, but went to sleep right after. Bring some warm clothes because it could be cold because of the ac. The only thing that bothered me was the guys who walks around and shouts good morning at like 7, I woke up and then slept again. The pillow was very hard, not very nice. I’d liked the trip, much better than I expected I would definitely do this again.

Very comfy and berth was just big enough to share with my child, carriage was clean and cool but not cold. Only marked down a bit because the guards were apparently unable to help me resolve a security issue with my berth, and that the toilets got smelly very quickly (even the Western toilet - seriously, how do people miss!?! ). Booking with 12go was so easy and took some of the stress out of it.

Surprisingly comfortable for the price. AC almost too cold, but certainly not hot like a local train. Beds, for knowing it is converted seats, good enough. Breakfast not tried after reading other's comments. We brought our own snacks and drank the coffee, also good for the price. Noise compared to airplane not too bad.

2nd class sleeper, I slept like a baby (in short bursts waking up crying). Had a great view from my lower berth. You get a well needed blanket (A.C is on full speed), lights is on in the cart too so might need something to pull over your head if you're easily distracted by the light. Only real negative for me was the expensive not very good breakfast that you didn't have to buy but I did anyways. 4/5 banana pancakes

Train was at station when we arrived at 9pm and we were able to get on and settle into our already set up beds. Space for luggage was good. Train left exactly at 10pm on schedule. Toilet was fine when we got on but by the morning was in need of a clean and more toilet roll. Beds are comfortable enough for a sleeper train. Would recommend

I love the sleeper train! I literally have not slept that good since arriving in Thailand two weeks ago, including at the fancy resort on Koh Samui! Dropping one star because I was charged 20B to use the plug in the dining room before I found the free plugs in the car. There was also a miscommunication about breakfast, presumably because the word "included" is not part of the hostess' English vocabulary (ie when she took my breakfast order and I asked if it was included, she said yes, and then charged me 180B. That, or she deliberately scammed me... You never know in Thailand!) But these hiccups are a normal part of backpacking through SE Asia, and overall the train was very enjoyable and fun. Arrived within 15 minutes of expected.

12Go Asia's office is conveniently located near the railway station. They proceeded quickly and even gave me a free water bottle. I wish I could pick up my tickets later than 8PM. - The train is quite old, and the toilets are not very clean. The toilet paper ran out quickly. - The was condensation inside my window and I could barely see outside. - The AC section is freezing cold. Bring a sweater. The provided bed sheet also helps. - There are very few power outlets, and they're in bad shape. Probably one per 8-12 seats. Charge your device in advance, bring a power bank, or bring a very long charging cable. - There is no wifi on board. - I easily slept 8-10 hours, and the 14h ride didn't feel very long at all. I didn't get to socialize with fellow travelers, as I hoped. - Both the bus and the plane are faster and cheaper (if you book early enough). I'll favor these options next time.

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!
