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 60 days before the departure for long-hauls and 30 days for short routes (e.g. Bangkok <-> Chumphon). If your departure is in more than 60 (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.

This is a seater train but you are getting some picturesque views all the way unlike the night train.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Chiang Mai #7

The following refund options are available:

  1. Refund 80% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking before the boarding pass is printed.

    Amount to be refunded: USD 15.85

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the boarding pass is printed.

    Press refund button before 2018-09-26 08:30 AM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 9.91

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the boarding pass is printed.

    Press refund button between 2018-09-26 08:30 AM and 2018-09-28 08:30 AM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 2.98

  4. Cancel

    Amount to be refunded: USD 0.00

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.

Really nice trip, train arrived on time. AC was on max the entire journey, so it might get a little bit cold so maybe would be better to bring a jacket. During the trip, you can see the beautiful landscapes of Thailand. The train is not the cleanest one, specially the toilet. They give you food but it's better if you bring your own.

Traveling to Chiang Mai with 12Go was a seamless and wonderful experience. They arranged a nice train for us for a (assumedly) fair price. The office to pick our tickets was closed for our 8:30AM trip so 12Go quickly emailed me saying they would leave my tickets with the security guard. What I feared would be a complicated situation turned out to be no hardship whatsoever. Will certainly travel with them again if life calls for it!

So, if you haven't been on this trip it's definitely worth doing. Great scenery and a pretty good ride. The food is nothing you'd write home about - at least in a good way - but you won't starve. We brought extra food as did some of the people who had taken the trip before. The train left on time and arrived on time - to the minute. Next time I'm going to try the overnight sleeper.

+ Punctual departure and arrival, fair amount of leg and body space per seat, some were reclinable, free small snacks, meals and hot & cold drinks were served multiple times. – Small cockroaches lingered on the floor and in the cracks where dirt and food crumbs gathered, seats were rotatable so they wobbled with movements of the train and passengers getting up and sitting down.

Really enjoyable trip along this very scenic line. We passed giant Buddhas, magnificent temples, and a troupe of monkeys !!! Complimentary meals were provided on the train. Air conditioning worked very well. There were also fans but they were turned off. The three car unit was hardly modern, but it was comfortable, and staff work hard to keep it in optimum condition. Someone regularly walked up and down the carriages sweeping up and collecting rubbish. Almost as soon as the train had reached its terminus, staff were busy turning the seats round so they were all facing in the direction of travel. Book early,as our train was fully booked.

This went much better than I thought. With a 2nd class ticket I wondered what we would get, but we got a shiny new train with good seats, plenty of overhead luggage storage, and morning snack, lunch (minimal, but better than nothing), and afternoon snack (all free). With bathrooms that were clean and had toilet paper. Buying the ticket through 12Go was easy, and the pickup was easy, even though we picked up unannounced several days in advance.

Toilets clean and the staff were excellent. We found the food a little too spicy so were glad of our snacks.

Nothing we did not expect—except the freeeeezing cold. It was 11 hours traveling in an ice box. Not a pleasant experience. If I did it again, I would take the sleeper. The trains are reasonably clean, the toilets very much so. The view only starts to be different and interesting when you are two-three hours from Chiang-Mai. I am guessing that it will already be daylight on the sleeper train by that time.

I love travel by trains. The views were great, so was the food and drink service (an unexpected bonus), the archaic trains were charming, the rocking and bumping thrilling, good toilets and overall easy. Only negative was the Siberian wind blowing in from the A/C. It was constant and freezing, and we were right below it. You could tell everyone else was suffering too. Nobody prepares for sub-arctic chills in Thailand. I had on every layer in my pack haha. Anyway, I guess it added to the experience. Definitely recommended.

The journey started well, the train was clean and left on time. Great in car food and drink service and free however, we like the train staff had concerns about the carriage suspension. There were frequent stops to inspect it. For some unknown reason we reversed about 2 /3 miles then stopped for 75 minutes without information from staff. Arrived at Chiang Mai 2 hours late. May be that's normal for Thai railways (not the greatest train either)
