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.

Berths on train #13 come in a group of 4. There are electric power outlets (220V) on seat numbers 5, 6, 9, 10, 29, 30, 33 and 34.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Chiang Mai #13

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 20.55

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-08-23 19:35 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 12.84

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-08-23 19:35 PM and 2018-08-25 19:35 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 3.86

  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.

Good support from 12goAsia. We feared their office (where we were supposed to pick up our train tickets) would be closed due to the national holiday (birthday queen SiriKit). But no, it was neatly open. Train trip was ok, value for money. Take ear buds (noisy) and eye cover (lights on all night). Food available for 160 BHT (dinner) and 130 BHT (breakfast).

The booking office offers good service. All worked out smoothly. We booked a 2nd class a/c sleeper. Beds are a bit short (1.90m), very noisy (earplugs!!!) from engine. Upper beds can be cold. Food on train is relatively expensive. Bring some snacks etc. Train ran perfectly on time

12Go is awesome, once you find their office. The train... Well, you can get flights for a similar price. Bring lots of warm clothes because the air conditioning has no thermostat so the carriage is very cold when it's already raining outside. The "blanket" provided is a glorified bath towel.

When it started raining my bed became wet as well. The staff is very very kind, and the lower beds are quite comfertable. I would certainly not recommend the upper bed, which is small, next to a very cold airco without a window

We travelled with 2 children. Train was clean, beds made up efficiently, arrived in Chiangmai on time, quietened down relatively early so no complaints there. The carriage we were in did smell of diesel when the train stopped to let another past but there was a fan that we could have turned on (aside from the a/c). Our friends in another carriage didn’t have the smell so maybe it was just the carriage. As an extra note, the people in the 123go office were amazing. V helpful v efficient so all ran smoothly in picking up 3 lots of train tickets and boat tickets.

Service from12go was great .... journey worth doing for the experience. I was on bottom bunk and warm enough with socks and extra jumper. Toilets smelly, bring hand sanitizer! Slept ok from around 2am... other passengers in carriage were quiet but train squeaked as it went along. Earplugs solved this! Train was 2 hours late to arrive in Chiang Mai.

At first it all seemed to go well, the staff was friendly and directly after sitting down the kitchen staff gave us orange juice without asking or anything and presented a menu after. Although the prices were moderate Thai restaurant prices, the food Dinner meal was mediocre. But hey, you're in a night train, so don't get your hopes up too much right? At 9 o' clock the staff started to get grumpy and ordered us quite vaguely to get everything of the table, wiping some stuff off and they started making the beds leaving no room to sit and chat during normal the evening hours. I guess getting a good night's sleep depends on your own sleeping habbits. It would've been nice if the A/C wasn't blowing icey cold air through out the complete night making it hard not to wake up a popsicle, especially sleeping in the top bunk (take the lower ones, gives you more room also). When you don't sleep in that easy, I recommend getting some earplugs and a eye-cover, also bring a sweater because the provided blanket won't keep you warm unless you have fur ;-) Then the next morning the breakfast came. Skip the hot cocoa and go with tea or coffee, I can't even describe what that smurry substance in a cup actually was. As a matter of fact, you can leave out the entirety of the breakfast as I have literally see no single person in the wagon eat it. And then the best part, the part where you have to pay for the meals. We we're overcharged big time and then the waitress had the freaking nerve to ASK FOR A TIP and when I said I was not tipping her she frowned upon me (noting that tipping isn't even a standard in Thailand, and I was already paying european prices for shitty meals anyway). Anyway, got some hours of sleep in at the hotel finally and all I learned for future rides is this. 1. Take 1st class wagons 2. If you're ending up in a 2nd class wagon anyway, make sure to take the bottom bunk 3. Eat some dinner before boarding the train and take some snacks with you as the food is not worth it. 4. Have your breakfast at your hotel or even at the Chiang Mai train station instead of on board of the train for same reason as mentioned above.

Should specify when booking that the #13 is the old train and the #9 is the new train - wouldn’t have booked the #13 otherwise. Very rickety and hard to sleep with the swinging and clanging. Beds comfortable enough though, and it gets the job done.
