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 #85 has electric power outlets (220V) near seat number: 5, 6, 9, 10, 29, 30, 33 and 34.
ATTENTION !!!
Tickets from Bangkok to Chumphon are released to the public only 30 days in advance. It may happen that by that time all tickets are sold already, because people booked long-distance trips (Bangkok - Lang Suan and further) which are released to the public 60 days in advance.
If you want to be sure to get tickets on this train you should purchase tickets from Bangkok to Lang Suan instead of Bangkok to Chumphon, so we can secure your tickets 60 days in advance and you can still leave train in Chumphon. The price difference for these tickets is only about 50 Baht for a second class sleeper berth and 80 Baht for a first class berth, but it will give you a much higher chance to actually get the tickets you really want.

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.

Everything was perfectly comfortable with bedding included. It's a shame we didn't get first class as the trip was very noisy in 2nd class. Book more than a month in advance to ensure 1st class. The 3 Scottish travellers

I should have got a bottom berth as they are bigger and the timing was not the best for sleeping well but it was still quite comfortable

Train left in time arrived just a little late at the destination but otherwise a simple clean efficient way to get around. Agree with the earlier comment. Top bunk doesn't enjoy the benefit of the bottom bunks in that the light is on all night.

The train was very old and dates. We travelled on a much newer train with the same class and was surprised to see such a difference. Considering they were both the same class and amenities they are worlds apart! There was evidently more staff and regular cleaning (which wasn't expected) on the Bangkok to Chiange Mai which was the total opposite from the second overnight sleeper train going South

Getting our tickets from 12go Asia was the best part! Great company and great communication ! The train was good, could of been a bit cleaner, and the dining car wasn’t there or not opened so it made food choices limited and not as fresh. Would of been great to know this beforehand to bring our own food and water! The large suitcases allowed in the isle were not the best option and were somewhat dangerous crawling around them. Staff was nice but too few of them for such a big train! Not sure if I would do it again.

The night train needs to be part of your holiday in Thailand. We prefer 1ste class but second class has its own charms.

Everything went perfect. We could biard the train early in Bangkok so we could prepare for the night with our baby easily. Our bed was also made prior to the others so our baby could sleep early. We arrived on time and aircon on the train was not too cold.
