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: USD 21.86

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2019-08-24 22:00 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 13.66

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

Service and help from 12Asiago is perfect. Train I took 2nd class, the total travelling time is 16 hr for me but i don’t expect everything to go as planned in Thailand right, no complain in that just to share... and remember to bring long pants and sweater because it’s soo cold inside but I love it :) general great experience!! From Chiangmai train station you can take the red songtaew to wherever you want easily!

We travelled 2nd class with aircon. Helpful and efficient staff. Lovely journey. Thought it would be noisy but it was quiet and I slept well. I was in the bottom bunk, lovely view out the window in the morning - could sit up comfortably. Glad we took the 22:00 train as no rush in the morning and could go straight to our hotel on arrival. To be recommended

Bathrooms absolutely disgusting and attendant was extremely rude and kept yelling when I wouldn’t go in one of them and was waiting to see if the second one (which was in use, hence my wait) was any better. Upper berth was extremely uncomfortable and tiny- do not recommend for anyone over 5’5. Don’t expect a pleasant experience or decent night’s sleep.

The trip was comfortable and the staff were very friendly. The train is not as clean as we would’ve liked, but it wasn’t bad enough to ruin the trip. I followed the recommendations of a few other reviewers and took an eye mask. I was very glad to have it because the lights stay on all night.

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.

12GO was east to use - simple, no issues. Train 51 was the only one left on the day we wanted to go so we took it. But we did not get one of the 4 person rooms as we’d hoped. Was an older train, no charging stations. But nice view of the countryside.

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

If you want to sleep on the upper deck, make sure that you have enough warm clothing and a thing to cover your eyes with. Nobody switches off the lights at night and there is an air con always on.

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.

The AC car is a bit cold but otherwise it's a comfortable trip! Beds were quite nice in 2nd class (don't expect anything too fancy, it's still a train and not a hotel), and breakfast was served in the restaurant car by a very nice and happy gentleman. Would recommend this trip, fun, easy, and you get to do some nice sightseeing in the morning from the train! Train was on time at the destination!

Was a little too cold inside the train for our taste but otherwise we were very satisfied b's the services provided. Tuning the AC down a bit would be appreciated. 1 hour delay on arrival wasn't big deal for us since we are here for vacation so we were not in a rich to get to our destination in exact time.
