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.

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: $ 22.25

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-12-17 19:35 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 13.91

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-12-17 19:35 PM and 2018-12-19 19:35 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 4.18

  4. Cancel

    Amount to be refunded: ฿ 0

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.

All fine, maybe apart from Lady that took 30 baht extra for canceling breakfast.. Breakfast was ordered the day before, just an hour after placing the order, and Lady was willing to take another 30 baht but got no from me. Apart from this, all fine. Kind man making up beds, very nice service, the waiter lady was nice as well apart from this strange behavior. The train itself was clean, bed comfy, 1.5 hour delay but it's within toleration. Fast and non problematic picking up the tickets in Bangkok. Nice adventure, friendly people

Everything was really good and convenient. Staff at the 12go office were really helpful, all of our tickets were ready, even the one before departure time. We also received a complimentary bottle of water for the journey. The carriage was surprisingly clean, travelled with only foreigners (unlike in India). The bed was comfy, air con not too cold and the toilet was relatively clean. All together good trip for a cheap fare.

Awesome way to travel. My 9 year old son had 1 lower and 1 upper berth. Train was a little rough a few moments during the night but so comfortable and easy way to travel plus save a night of lodging. Beds were clean and comfortable and neither of us had an issue with air conditioning being too cold but I did hear the person in the top berth next to us complaining it was cold up there. Would travel by train to avoid airport security and wait times any day if it was always this smooth

It was really easy to buy the tickets online via 12go - we bought about a month in advance and got 2nd class sleeper seats with AC. We collected the tickets on the morning of the journey from the 12go office which is opposite the station. The train was clean and had nice air con - felt a little chilly at first but got used to it. Once we were moving, the staff quickly moved down the carriage, making our seats into bunk beds with clean linen, pillow case and blanket and hung up curtains for privacy. The bed was surprisingly comfy and cosy. I’m only small so was fine for me but I think maybe a little squished for a 6ft+ male. The toilets weren’t amazing - one was a squat but if you walk down to the other end of the carriage they had regular toilets. The journey was a little bumpy but felt safe. I only slept for 4 out of the 13 hours but I am a light sleeper and was happy just to be comfy and lying down, not forced upright in a bus/plane seat. The train felt safe and friendly - no alcohol allowed which meant there weren’t any rowdy groups which could have really ruined the trip. The train left exactly on time at 19:35 but arrived at 9:00 - 20 min later than planned - not too bad for such a long journey. The staff were nice in waking up anyone who was still asleep at about 8am and a lady was taking tea/coffee orders in the last hour or so of the journey. Tips: I would recommend trying to get a lower bunk as you’re not directly blasted by the air con and not below the light, which is on all night obviously for security reasons. Try to wake up about 7am to get some awesome views of the jungle in the morning! Charge your electricals before your journey or bring a power bank - there is the odd plug socket which we were lucky enough to be next to, but it seemed there were only 2/3 per carriage which held about 30-40 beds.

A trip back to the backpacking roots! 1. Fantatstic support by 12GoAsia with lots of advice and help by Guido in Bangkok. 2. As rustic as it seems, the sleepers in 2nd class do turn into quite comfy bunks. Book the lower one for less light and ease of mind, if you move a lot while sleeping! And stay away from the doors, as they disturb a light sleeper quite a bit! 3. Take train no. 13 as you get to see some of the land passing outside your window in the morning!
