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.

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 ticket is confirmed.

    Amount to be refunded: USD 35.76

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2019-07-25 19:30 PM Bangkok time (1 day left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 22.35

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2019-07-25 19:30 PM and 2019-07-27 19:30 PM Bangkok time (3 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 6.71

Very pleased with this whole experience. 12Go office staff were helpful. Train was easy to find and boarded on time. First class sleeper worth the money. Beds very good for what they are, set up early and with delightful efficiency. Toilet not bad. Staff on the train were kind, reassuring and helpful. Food was better than expected. Night train Bangkok to Surat Thani was a long journey and by the end I was absolutely ready to get off the train. When we did get off, the bus transfer was there to greet us and with a quick sit down to rest and sort out tickets for our journey on to Koh Phangan we were on our way again in a short time. The best things about this way to travel is the ease of getting on the train without travelling through an airport and also saving on accomodation. The whole journey from Bangkok to Koh Phangan was long but from the operators point of view, service was seamless. I would happily recommend booking a train journey with 12Go.

Train was on time. No problem finding out where to go to get to the train on the train station as its only 9 platforms ???? no major problems. Toilets were smelly and not so good, but not too bad either. Had both western toilet and squat toilet. Was also a shower inside the toilet room, so the toilet was often wet. No one disturbing at night, beds were comfortable and clean which were great. Was able to charge our phones. Water in the sink in the room was great too, with free soap bars. We asked the train person and he told us that the train always arrives 20 to 30 mins later to surat thani than what it says on the ticket. The train was on time, but we still arrived 7.45, not 7.06 as the ticket said, so expect this. Also tickets was very easy to pick up at the 12go office that you can see from the train station.

It was a practical and quite peaceful way to get from Bangkok to Khanom. The cabins are in need of proper cleaning, it's not enough that the linens are clean... More "official" information could be useful in the cabins (price lists, how to contact staff). And we also met the whispering beer selling man in the train.

There came a man in the train who selled meals and beer. Two beers for 280 baht... be aware of that. We ordered breakfast and coffee and were charged 320 baht per person. No Thai prices. The cabines (VIP) were soooo dirty. We saw at least 10 cockroaches in each cabine (we booked three cabines, 6 persons). It looks like they never clean the cabines. Everything was sticky, hear on the floors and under your feet... the toilets were dirty.. The good things; tickets were “cheap”, the train was on time, the people who worked there were kind (smile, take your suitcases, making your bed etc).

Compartment was clean and spacious. I was somewhat disappointed with the food and no alcohol which would have been perfect for night cap. Air conditioning was set too low (too cold) a passenger had to sleep with additional clothing. An extra blanket would have been in order. Awoke frequently because of the cold.

They train was extremally noisy like if it was about to fall apart. Don't get me wrong, we have old trains in Poland too, but this one was just wreck :) but main reason for lower rate is that our room was overlooked during bed making and I had to ask few times to do it and we had terrible Jet lag and were tired. Plus AC was very strong, no way to turn it off fully and now we both are coughing badly. 12goasia office experience was however very good!

Enjoyed the trip, 1st class was fairly basic but comfortable. Food was decent value but only luke warm when delivered to the cabin, I would be tempted to just use the restaurant car next time. Three hours late in to Surat Tharni, but this did give us plenty of time to admire the countryside in daylight. Better than flying for me. Service from 12tgo was excellent.

Very pleasant service from 12go, great team. First class sleepers are outdated and we had multiple cockroaches, the squatting toilet in a moving train is an accident waiting to happen for people that are any less than fit - but nevertheless (if you can actually look over this) the sleep was surprisingly comfortable, and the train personell was friendly too. We arrived about an hour late, seems to be more or less normal for this trip.

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

About the trip itself: the term first class is a bit misleading... trains look very old and dirty, difficult to get a good sleep. 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!!!
