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 ticket is confirmed.

    Amount to be refunded: USD 23.08

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2019-09-23 19:35 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 14.42

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

I travelled on second class with A/C and I got the bottom bed . I was gradly surprised how comfortable the trip was... I didn’t have many expectations for the ride so I went prepared for a hard trip. I took my own pillow and blanket but didn’t need to use them. I slept the whole trip... the bathrooms were ok.

My original booked train was full. There was an altenative train for the same day, So i had to pay more for the AC (The one i've booked was with a fan). I payed more than the people who booked this train in the first place. Rest of the 12goasia service was perfect.

É uma ótima forma de viajar para Chiang Mai, se formos à noite. Chegamos descansados e fazemos a viagem a dormir. A cama tem que ser a de baixo. Mesmo os casais escolham o lower, pois tèm mais espaço, têm janela logo vista, quando acordam não têm que estar de pé e podem estar sentados, a luz está apagada. Pessoalmente, dormi bastante bem. A estação em Chiang Mai é muito bonita. Ponto negativo: perguntaram-nos de manhã, se queriamos café e dissemos que sim, mas que queriamos saber quanto é que era. A senhora não nos respondeu, mas quando veio trouxe um sumo de laranja natural, um café e um brownie e cobrou-nos 160 baht por pessoa!

The train is clean, the employees are nice and it’s a beautiful ride once the sun comes up. The a/c was better than nothing but I really wish the fans were turned on because it was pretty stuffy at night with all the people. But nonetheless, highly recommend!

The 19:35 train leaves from Bangkok central. Booked 2nd class with air-conditioning. At first it seemed a bit noisy but once on the road it was quite comfortable. The beds were fine and clean but not too big. I am 185cm and could not lay out flat (which was ok).

The train was cleaner than I ecpected so I was happy with that. The man on the train helping with setting the beds and making the beds was very rude and unfriendly. As for the food and beverages: they gave my family 4 fresh orange juice without saying a price, so you would expect it to be free as a welcome drink. But you have to pay for it the next day. I was happy with the service of 12go.asia as to purchasing the tickets

Goed geregeld door 12go, alles verliep soepel. Wij hadden een afhaal maaltijd gekocht bij 12go café, was lekker en snel klaar. Nacht trein was prima. Als je boven slaapt is het wel heel koud. Verder hadden wij bed 1 en 2, deze waren naast de WC. De WC was vies en je rook het in ons bed. Dit was het enige minpunt.

It was oké. But the toilet was very very dirty! The prices of the food/beverages offered, I was not told how much the fresh squeezed orange juice was, it was given to my children without asking me first. One of us had a dirty sheet. We did not sleep well. It was an nice experiance but not that great as we expected it would be after Reading other comments.

Great trip, smooth ride, on time service... kind of unbelievable actually, the only negative was the unexplained prices of the food/beverages offered, I was not told how much the fresh squeezed orange juice was, (it was out of this world tasty), but it was given to my children without asking me first, then the coffee came with a little cake, I was not told the cake was not complimentary and had some sticker shock at the end, I don't mind paying 100 bhat for a dang good cup of coffee...but it was just a standard cup of coffee and certainly not worth 100bhat, I would have liked to have been told prices... and I never want anything handed to my children without first being asked. But truly this was a small matter, overall, great ride, slept good, and we left exactly on time...

2nd class is fine but the light staying on all night is not pleasant in the upper berths. As a family of 4 with two kids we used 2 upper and 2 lower berths across each other. That was a good choice. I recommend the air conditioned coach. That was perfect. For tall people, I am 1,98 m, the lower berth is a bit short but okay. Upper berth is probably shorter. Little sleep though due to the moving of the train, but also the frequent stops.

Service at 12go was good. The train left 1/2 hour late. That wasn’t a problem for us though. One lady taking orders for food and delivering in 2 stages 20 min apart was not good. Food not up to standard for the price. Bathroom & toilet need upgrading. They are very basic. We went 2nd class as no first class available. I’ll have to book earlier or I think I’ll fly direct next time.

I had no problems at all, the 12Go office was easy to find, the train was on time and not too crowed thanks to mid season. But don't be fooled, it's still the backpacker options, I'd guess there are better ways to get from BKK to Chiang Mai. I slept through the whole night so nothing to complain, except for the bathroom situation. It's alright for brushing teeth and a quick wash, but no privacy and I also refuse trying the toilet there. So bring some wipes and you will be fine. I did not try the food there cause I heard it's more pricy, but there a 7/11 at the rail station. We arrived quite punctually. I would choose the sleeper train again.

The actual train station’s information desk was not helpful, but once we found the 12Go building and information desk, they were super nice and helpful. The attendants on the train were short with us. The train policy on food was terrible I changed my mind on food I order and was made to pay for food I didn’t want. Lastly, my friends and I felt pressured to eat and get up before we were ready.

The train was very comfortable and the staff adorable. On the other hand, for the bathroom, it's a hell. The smell is horrible. I had no difficulty finding 12go Asia's offices to pick up my tickets and they even gave me back money because my ticket was cheaper than expected which is very honest

For all the people who wants to know about the night train. You have to come 30 minutes. When you arrive, both of you are sit on the down berth. 30 minutes after the departure, someone proposes you a dinner for 190 bahts. After 1-2 hours, someone makes your bed but don’t do it yourself or he will scream on you !! (That’s why I put 4 stars) Then the upper and the down berths are done and you can sleep. 1 hour before the arrival, someone comes to take off the bed sheets. I recommend this train for a night trip !
