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 2019-01-19 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 2019-01-19 19:35 PM and 2019-01-21 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.

Initially booked first class months and months in advance for this trip, but was not able to get two seats, so had to go with second class. Not sure if it made much of a difference. The toilet was atrocious with an unbearable smell. The food made us sick and was expensive. Eye mask and earplugs are essential, especially in the top bunk... otherwise you will never sleep! Also our train arrived about 2 hours late, so take that into consideration if you need to be somewhere on time (another train, flight, etc) Overall, on a positive note, we got where we needed to be and it was affordable.

Was kept informed about tickets and where to collect all the way through the process.. found ticket office easily, was very helpful staff and even gave a free bottle of water..train was prompt but slightly late away from station.. but the beds were adequate, very clean, cool and you had your privacy via a draw curtain.. Coffee and food was offered throughout, but at a cost!... all in all a very good experience at a very good price!.. if you don’t mind travelling through the night, his is the best option for you!

I was on the top bunk 2nd class and it was very difficult to sleep as is wasn’t dark at all like the bottom bunk. The curtain doesn’t stop the light getting in at all so it was bright all night - I did hope at some point that the main lights would go off but that didn’t happen. It would be fine if I’d taken an eye mask but I found it strange as the bottom compartment is so dark, so I was quite disappointed!

I have used this train many times and it is okay for the money. I strongly recommend passengers take ear plugs in case they are unfortunate enough to have noisy fellow passengers as we did this time. Also take an eye mask because the train lights are not dimmed during the night and the curtains fail to block out the light especially in the upper berths. As usual i took my motorbike in the luggage compartment and unfortunately it arrived damaged in Chiang Mai. Station porters were not interested when i pointed out said damage..... typical Thai attitude.

Train 13 is quite old and shook a lot during the night. However, the close proximity of bunk beds and the carriage brought back a nostalgia of the old days of rail travel, so it was fine for the experience, if not for comfort. Attendants were efficient and friendly, sheets were clean and the beds surprisingly good. Amazingly the train was only 15 minutes late to Chiangmai , unlike the Oriental express that my parents took, they were 4hrs late!

Collected my tickets from the 12go office which was easy to find with no problem, got my allocated seat/bed on my overnight train. It was a seamless transaction and i had no issues at all. Totally enjoyed my second class overnight train and enjoyed all the hospitality offered by the very lovely staff. Would most definitely recommend 12go for this journey and the bus journey i have undertaken with them.

Top bunk is very bright during the night as it’s close to the lights and the curtain doesn’t block the lights at all! Bottom bunk is much more comfortable. Also the AC gets quite cold during the night and you will need something in addition to the thin blanket they provide. But I like it cold!

You get what you pay for. Beds just about big enough to sleep in, probably not for anyone taller than 5,8. People offered orange juice a few times. Not very well advertised where we could get food/snacks. Apparently there was a restaurant area? Overall did the job, little bit noisy but nothing that we weren’t expecting :) would use again for the ease and budget.

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
