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.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Nakhon Si Thammarat #85

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 21.74

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2019-07-24 19:30 PM Bangkok time (1 day left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 13.59

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2019-07-24 19:30 PM and 2019-07-26 19:30 PM Bangkok time (3 days left).

Il n'y avait pas de rideau sur notre couchette du bas, heureusement celle d'en face en avait 2, Nous avons donc dû décrocher 1 rideau sinon nous n'aurions pas pu dormir. Sinon le reste était bien, hormis 1 heure de retard au départ.

I always love traveling with the night train. The lower berths are more comfortable than the upper berths though. So if you are traveling alone, then certainly choose a lower berth. We did two upper and one lower and that was just fine. I love that the beds are made with nice sheets and a decent pillow by the attendant. Everything is well taken care of. The toilets are not very 'fresh', but I'm used to that in Thailand. I would certainly recommend traveling by night train. Our daughter (now 8 years old) likes it very much too. A lovely adventure.

An adventure the kids loved. Sleeping on a train was a first for them and despite the slightly bumpy motion of the train and the general noise, a pretty good night's sleep was had by all. The ticket pick up was smooth and the comfort levels in 2nd class were absolutely fine.

It was fun, the AC was full blast! Staff were very helpful. 12go staff are very accomodating too. My daughter and I made friends with 3 lovely German ladies. I would say the trip experience was good. They just need to check the toilet from time to time if it is clean or not. But over all it was a good experience I would not forget!

12go offer an excellent service, used them many times and it would be great if other travel companies were to learn from them what customer service should be like. The railway staff were excellent and the bed was comfortable, unfortunately the rail carriage was old and had problems. Before leaving Bangkok the door had to be worked on as it was broken. This also happened last time I used the service. About half an hour after leaving Bangkok the train stopped and didn't move for nearly two hours, lots of banging and hammering could be heard. Because of the delay the train was over one hour late arriving at Surat Thani and subsequently I missed my ferry to Koh Samui. The staff at Lomprayah were very good and I was put on the next ferry. The ferry didn't get me to my destination until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. I have used this sleeper service (train 85) many times and it is obvious the train needs replacing with new stock similar to the Chiang Mai service. I will be using it to return to Bangkok (86 service) but it will be my last time as in future I will use Air Asia to fly instead.

Everything was good and without inconveniences. Had 2nd class sleeper which wasn't that cold at all. Slightly bumpy ride and because of that didn't get much sleep. I ordered 2 meals during the ride (dinner and brakefast) both were OK quality.

good experiance using the night train to Surat Thani, me and my partner had a great sleep. At first you think (12) hours on a train is too much but the little cosy bed was a way sleep and I would recommend to anyone who wants to travel cheep. This a great Way to get to the islands from Bangkok.

Had a great experience on the second class sleeper train. The sheets were clean and packaged individually. The beds were made up in front of us by a friendly conductor. Glad we got the air con as it would've been uncomfortablly warm with the fan. Once the curtains were drawn, our sleeping area was completely private. The lights didn't dim during the night so take a sleeper mask if you prefer to sleep in the dark. As a couple, we booked an upper and lower berth so we had our own section and used the upper berth for our luggage and lower berth to sleep. Food was overpriced but we brought our own snacks onto the train to eat. There's a 7 11 across the road to the Hua Lamphong train station, and a restaurant next door to that where you can sit and have a beer and meal and charge your phone while you wait. We booked the train with 12Go- easy booking process and ticket collection.

Trip went well and sleeping “beds” also clean, but a bit hard. Didn’t sleep a lot, but my fellow travelers did, so they have a more positive feeling. The train itself is rather old, toilet very smelly and old. But on the other hand for it’s price it was worth it.

Le voyage en train s’est bien passé (prévoir des boules quies et un masque de nuit car les portes claquent et les lumières restent allumées). 12goasia nous a demandé si ça ne nous dérangeait pas de prendre le train suivant (1h d’écart), car le train était plein pas de problème pour nous. Lorsque nous sommes passés à l’agence récupérer nos billets, la femme était très souriante et nous a même imprimé notre billet de bus pour le lendemain ! Nous sommes très content de la prestation de 12goasia, nous l’avons utilisé pour réserver différents bus, train et mini van et aucun problèmes à signaler :)

My train was fully booked so i got put onto a slightly later train, but this was done well in advance of my arrival at Hua Lamphong with good comms via email. The problem was that when arriving at Surat Thani there is only 1 bus to Krabi and it had already gone so consider this when you are travelling Bangkok > Krabi. Despite this I very much enjoyed the overnight train experience and would do it again as it was fun to wake up in a different part of Thailand and not have to pay for accommodation for 1 night. Rather than have a meal brought to your bed, I recommend you walk through all the carriages and dine at the restaurant carriage as this is an experience in itself!

The beds on the sleeper train were very comfortable and I slept well. There was lots of room for all my luggage. The food options were great and received quickly. However I feel like a bottle of water should be complementary (like on Thailand long distance buses) since you are travelling overnight. However the train was over an hour late departing and arriving, with no explanation why. Overall I enjoyed the journey, and would take the sleeper train again.

We were happily surprised on how comfortly the train was, much better than a plane! The bed was comfortable and clean. The trip did not feel as long as it was (was 1hour slower than advertised). Only downside was the toilets (one squat, and one western style) both a shaft to under train, quite smelly and a bumpy ride! Could definitely be updated.

Train is the same as 15 year ago.. but now little bit more dirt and cockroach everywhere. When you close your curtain ik become verry hot but when you open them it's to cold from the airc. Curtains are not blinding so the light what stays on keep me out of my sleep. The food we ordered was not warm, also the breakfast egg was cold. Of course it's a good price but I hope they ask a opnion to better themselves and hope I did my part to point out some points.

Staff effecient and friendly. Food, though not the cheapest turned out to be good value as includes tasty main meal with rice, egg, spring rolls, pineapple slices and juice drink. Also came with a bowl of soup but we didn't eat this as filled up by the rest! Overall great experience and would highly recommend.

Trip form Bankok to Surat Thani: easy booking and ticket exchange, good journey, clean beds, comfortable. To sleep, take ear plugs, some travelers might be noisy. As a family, we booked 4 beds together which we got (side by side). Kids loved it, much better than flying. Air con was ok, not too cold. Food+drinks are available in the train (evening and morning) and will be delivered directly to your bed… Don't hesitate.
