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.

Starting from November 11, 2016 the SRT has used new train carriages.
Each first-class seat is equipped with a TV screen, electric outlet (220V) and a USB slot for battery recharging. The train also includes dining car, wheelchair elevators, airplane-style vacuum toilets, surveillance cameras, opened door alarms.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Chiang Mai #9

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: $ 41.23

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-12-12 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 25.77

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-12-12 18:10 PM and 2018-12-14 18:10 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 7.74

  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.

We do not have any other experience about travelling by train in Thailand, but I think this was close to average. Food served there was cold and bed was hard like a stone. But anyway better than travelling by bus. We had our privacy in 1.st class sleeper. Asia12Go-travel agency was good, everything was organized smoothly. We would trust them in the future again.

Best Experience so far! Smooth transaction from 12go. If you are travelling bangkok to chiangmai, I recommend you to try train ride 1st class sleeper. Only if you have a lot of time. 1st class sleeper has private room for 2 (bunk beds), make sure to tell 12go if you want to be seated together. If you are family they also have connecting room. Our train by the way is a new one - train #9. 1st class sleepers will be sharing total of 2 restrooms 1 for guys and 1 bathroom. Good thing here is that your room has led monitor where you will see if the bathroom or restroom is occupied or not. Meaning no need for you to stand and wait for other person to finish. For food - someone will get orders from 1st class sleepers. It is better if u can bring your own food because it is kind of more expensive from train. And the girl who takes order will try to get more order from you. She even gave us fruit which we thought was free since we bought a dinner. But next day she asked us to pay for fruits. Oh well. But we enjoyed our trip to chiang mai. It was a 13hrs short trip but very enjoyable.

Ticket pick up experience was easy and perfect. Train exactly on time for departure and arrival. Service in dining car very slow but still better than dealing with eating in cabin (IMO). Had light breakfast delivered and it was perfect. Bed very hard, a little chilly, too. But the ride was pleasant and we'd do it again.

The train ride was fine, and as expected. As an American from Colorado, I didn't find the train cold at all. My main problem was with 12go.asia as they purchased my ticket for a male (I am female) and was forced to share a cabin with a strange man from eastern Europe. I checked my receipt and confirmed that I had purchased my ticket for a female passenger.

12 Go did a great job! I will use them again. One comment on the trip from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. (We traveled First Class.) Just after leaving the Bangkok station, we were offered the opportunity to order a breakfast delivered to our “stateroom”. It is possible that it was the worst meal I have ever been served! NOTE: I didn’t say “eaten”. The porter supplied pictures and description were yummy. In actuality the meal served was almost indescribable. The two fried eggs were rubber and right out of the refrigerator as was the hot dog sausage and two pieces of toast only toasted on one side and “raw” on the other. The two pieces were stuck together! Dry of course. The juice was reconstituted something. We ate the three small pieces of watermelon and tossed the rest in the trash. Disgusting!

The first class sleeper in trainnumber 9 deserves a 5star.. just because if the really too cold airconditioning I gave the experience an 4star rating. The staff were really friendly and helpfull, good service if you want to order food and beverages, just a little over rated. The 1st class sleeper looks amazing modern and fresh. Really clean and the staff even come to prepair the bed for you. Conecting rooms are also available. The cabin be closed and locked and you got an tv and enough charge possibilities.. even WiFi the whole journey! You got your own sink and mirror to refresh and on the end there are toilets and even a shower. Just the mattras to sleep on is very very hard and the airconditioning is freezing, really freezing so come prepaired :)

Food/drink served into cabin was excellent and a number of food options -including vegetarian). Beds made up on request. Toilets/shower clean and all good. Sleeping ok but as good as you can expect on a train. All good and a recommended experience.

Fantastic journey start to finish. Booked online with 12Go Asia and followed their well detailed (and at times funny) instructions, T&Cs. The staff in the office opposite the station in the 12Go building were very helpful and the staff in the station itself were equally helpful. There are lots of facilities in the station including shops, toilets, coffee, food and more. We travelled in the 1st class sleeper cabin (x2) with our children which were worth every penny. The cabins were incredibly clean and spacious. Our cabins had an inter-connecting door also so we could open up into one big room. The cabins contain a sink each, bunk beds, a TV and a USB port per bunk to charge phones etc. 1st class also had its own shower, 2 toilet cubicles and 1 urinal for use across the 12-14 cabins. The food offered on board (pay by cash in the morning) was very tasty and great value although we did bring some of our own food on board also.
