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.

ATTENTION !!!
Tickets from Bangkok to Chumphon are released to the public only 30 days in advance. It may happen that by that time all tickets are sold already, because people booked long-distance trips (Bangkok - Lang Suan and further) which are released to the public 60 days in advance.
If you want to be sure to get tickets on this train you should purchase tickets from Bangkok to Lang Suan instead of Bangkok to Chumphon, so we can secure your tickets 60 days in advance and you can still leave train in Chumphon. The price difference for these tickets is only about 50 Baht for a second class sleeper berth and 80 Baht for a first class berth, but it will give you a much higher chance to actually get the tickets you really want.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Nakhon Si Thammarat #85

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 32.53

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-11-22 19:30 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 20.33

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-11-22 19:30 PM and 2018-11-24 19:30 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 6.10

  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.

Nice train. Comfortable bed and plenty of room. We had a 2 person first class sleeper which was excellent. Private and relaxing. Start of the journey was rough - train spent s good 30 minutes shunting around backwards and forwards sometimes quite violent (I wouldn’t have wanted to be on the toilet / or worse, squatting) we then appeared to return to the station and sit for about 30 minutes so didn’t depart til 8pm. Uneventful for the remainder of the trip. We arrived about 45 minutes later than expected which was fine. set an alarm for arrival time as the train staff only lightly tap on your door about 5 minutes before and say the stop so if you’re a heavy sleeper you’ll sleep through and possibly miss your stop. All in all a good trip. Train reasonably smooth, but quite loud. A good way to travel overnight and save on accommodation

I think our 1st class sleeper carriage was one of the oldest - it was very tired and fairly worn. The bed linen was clean and fine, but both our neighbours in the next compartment and we had small cockroaches visiting us in the night! Staff were friendly and 'encouraged' us strongly to buy dinner and breakfast. We had brought our own things for dinner but did order breakfast, which was a perfectly adequate tray with coffee or tea. It was a good trip but the oldest carriages really need to be seriously overhauled and much better cleaned/maintained.

My partner and myself booked first class tickets on the overnight train from Hua Lamphong to Surratthani and it was a pleasant ride. We managed to get some sleep and it nice to have our own private cabin on the train. To some people first class should include many things and I expect many to complain about first inclusions but my partner and myself were happy with everything. It's all about adaptation and gratitude instead of always looking for unnecessary luxuries. There is really only one issue and that would be the toilet. A lot of westerners over-exaggerated the toilets uncleanliness but it wasn't that bad at all. Sure it was smelly but it still worked and was somewhat clean and if it really smelt that bad just hold your breath and bring antiseptic hand wash and you'll be fine. Overall a pleasant ride and would do it again.

The same as most. Train is OK. Toilet better than you would think, staff very good. I bought food on the train as I feel it is important to support the restaurant car or loose it. Loads of food, dinner for 2 plus loads of drinks 600 baht. If you arrive early and are too exhausted to explore the area, if you are first class, then there is a V I P room for you to lie in (with sofa tv and aircon). Just by the platforms. 12go asia are 5 stars. The booking is good and all instructions are clear. Picking up the tickets easy but crossing the road scary so get dropped off at the station and let the main booking person cross the roads without luggage.

Compartment is very small but does have a useful washbasin. Just don't expect to get a good night's sleep! Breakfast service to the 1st class compartment was very good and cheap. We took our own food in from street stalls outside the station for dinner Toilet was regularly cleaned. So worth 3 stars, but 12GO Asia are worth 5!

Staff is very fiendly though, very good service for making up the beds. Be careful for persons not in uniform that try to act as train staff!!!

It was simple to pick up the tickets from 12goasia office and the staff were very pleasant. The station is easy to navigate. The train is basic, the toilets are smelly, and the beds are hard. The air conditioning is pretty Arctic!! But it is good value. On the plus side, the staff were lovely......friendly and helpful. The sleeping carriage was clean and the linen was clean and smelt nice. We would do it again.

Train was quite dirty and random hawkers came on trying to sell illegal beer. People kept trying to open the door at night while we were trying to sleep. Meal service was very overpriced and not appetizing. The toilets were atrocious. Would recommend paying the extra money for a flight. Did not mention the bus between the train and the ferry. Would not recommend.

Absolutely loved travelling on the overnight train, we had the first class carriage and it was very comfortable. Highly recommend doing this instead of losing a day on travelling! We chose the longer route to Koh Tao via Suratthani instead of Chumphon as it allows us to get a decent night's rest.

I think our 1st class sleeper carriage was one of the oldest - it was very tired and fairly worn. The bed linen was clean and fine, but both our neighbours in the next compartment and we had small cockroaches visiting us in the night! Staff were friendly and 'encouraged' us strongly to buy dinner and breakfast. We had brought our own things for dinner but did order breakfast, which was a perfectly adequate tray with coffee or tea. It was a good trip but the oldest carriages really need to be seriously overhauled and much better cleaned/maintained.

More timely than German Rail. We departed exactly on time and arrived only 5 minutes late. Bring lots of warm clothes with as the 1st class sleepers are cooled down quite a bit, with cold air vents blowing especially on the upper bunk.

Train left on time and cabin clean. Our only issue is that on the top bunk, the arm rest causes great discomfort when the seat becomes a bed! Also the toilet becomes very smelly - but these are small things and the service is very efficient and good value.

Picture online makes accommodation look nicer than it is. Also a bit of a language barrier with staff who, on some occasions, just rudely walked off when communication broke down. I was trying to order food at the time. However, a surprisingly comfortable sleep as long as you bring ear plugs.

My partner and myself booked first class tickets on the overnight train from Hua Lamphong to Surratthani and it was a pleasant ride. We managed to get some sleep and it nice to have our own private cabin on the train. To some people first class should include many things and I expect many to complain about first inclusions but my partner and myself were happy with everything. It's all about adaptation and gratitude instead of always looking for unnecessary luxuries. There is really only one issue and that would be the toilet. A lot of westerners over-exaggerated the toilets uncleanliness but it wasn't that bad at all. Sure it was smelly but it still worked and was somewhat clean and if it really smelt that bad just hold your breath and bring antiseptic hand wash and you'll be fine. Overall a pleasant ride and would do it again.

The same as most. Train is OK. Toilet better than you would think, staff very good. I bought food on the train as I feel it is important to support the restaurant car or loose it. Loads of food, dinner for 2 plus loads of drinks 600 baht. If you arrive early and are too exhausted to explore the area, if you are first class, then there is a V I P room for you to lie in (with sofa tv and aircon). Just by the platforms. 12go asia are 5 stars. The booking is good and all instructions are clear. Picking up the tickets easy but crossing the road scary so get dropped off at the station and let the main booking person cross the roads without luggage.

12GO Asia were incredibly efficient in booking the tickets and providing information. Train is very slow and noisy but the bed linen was very clean and the bunks comfortable. Compartment is very small but does have a useful washbasin. Just don't expect to get a good night's sleep! Breakfast service to the 1st class compartment was very good and cheap. We took our own food in from street stalls outside the station for dinner Toilet was regularly cleaned. So worth 3 stars, but 12GO Asia are worth 5!

Die Reise war ok aber ich finde dass man genauso gut zweite klasse fahren kann. Man hat zwar einen abschließbaren Raum aber muss ihn sich trotzdem mit einer zweiten Person teilen. Wir sind in Bangkok ca. 45 min später losgefahren aber sind trotzdem pünktlich in Surat Thani angekommen.
