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

Cancelation policy: Chiang Mai - Bangkok #52

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: $ 20.74

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

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.

Train was old, noisy and toilets were disgusting. I have gotten the sleeper train 2 years ago and we had newer trains.

The train was old, which meant that the air conditioner wasn’t that cold and the toilets were super basic, like in a 70’s movie probably. And for some reason, the service wasn’t very organised as well. My train experience from BKK to Chiangmai was so much better though.

My family and I are not used to taking the train. This was actually our first time in the very long time, so of course we had a very high expectation. And much to our relief, we were not disappointed as we all had a very memorable experience. Despite the shaky journey the beds were satisfactory. The service in the cafeteria was also pleasant, the waiters were very friendly and outgoing. Our only complaint is probably foul smell coming from the nearby toilet. Also, the ticket collector was not very helpful and my family and I were a bit in the mess trying to find our seats. But overall everything was good enough.

Not the worst train I've been on (it was no. 2 second class sleeper). Our seats/beds were right next to toilets which stank (maybe that's why it's called the number 2). It didn't ruin our trip or anything, maybe it's just first world whinging

Overall a good experience. The departure time of 15:30 was my third choice. Even though I booked the trip 60 days in advance as suggested. Highly suggest booking earlier than 60 days to get the train you want. My preference would have been the later two times since they newer trains.

Definetely a more confortable way to travel, 2 bathrooms on the carriage and sleeping quarters are set up at about 7pm, know your destination as once close to Bangkok there are multiple stops, it was around the airport where we were more or less woken up

Collection of tickets was easy but communication at the train station was a factor, Platform for train departure is not visible, train stops at different station was not able to understand and toilets was left to your imagination and finally, being a secure ticket holder, i don't see the reason to pay to go to a toilet at stations. my 2 cents sharing, Sawadee

Everything was on time with departure. Just little bit late we arrived to Bangkok. Sleeping berth was very good. You can sleep normally. Clean covers, bed prepared by stuff around 19 o'clock. Just toilet.. one toilet I found normal another ones just whole on the floor ;)

Train toilet needs updating, just a hole in floor where waste goes untreated onto tracks. Train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai was luxurious compared going back from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. This train was old and rusty. Chiang Mai to Bangkok.

It is pleasant and I had a nice trip. It would be nice if each cabin has its own charging port. I would advise that if you plan to travel by train you should bring your own food and drinks and also bring something that can keep you warm because it is a bit chilly at first until the sleeper was put into sleep position when a blanket was then provided.

The experience with 12goasia is amazing very efficient and convenient. I've got Chiang mai 5 hours before the train departure but I've stayed at the bossotel lobby with Wi-Fi and nice ambiance!! Love It! Thank you

The trip itself was OK. We originally had booked a later train, where we would be in a compartment for ladies only and where a meal was included. As the train was fully booked, we were rearranged for an earlier train, where we got placed in an both gender compartment and not served a meal. In such rearrangements, information should be provided concerning what is different from the original booking.

12goAsia was extremely organized and easy to work with. The trip going to Chiang Mia on 2nd class was nice. Pleasantly surprised there was so much food free. On the way back on the 2nd class sleeper it was ok. No food included which should be specifically stated on all literature. All the trains are very dated. If you are used to high standards and 5 star quality accommodations and you can't be open and flexible this is not the option for you. The toilet and other accommodations are not up to western standards. With all that said, with an adventurous spirit and a go with the flow attitude it's a great way to go to Chiang Mai and see the landscape. I'll probably fly next time - it's just a looooonng trip by train.
