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.

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: USD 41.11

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-06-27 18:10 PM Bangkok time (1 day left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 25.70

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-06-27 18:10 PM and 2018-06-29 18:10 PM Bangkok time (3 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 7.71

  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.

Great trip in the first class private cabin. Plenty of space to relax and spread out. Only hesitation from 5 stars was the "room service". The food was great but quite pricey for what you got. And this was possibly a language barrier issue, but we felt pressured into room service, as if there was not an option to say no or get food on our own. Additionally, the total price for the room service was not clear until it was time to pay, after the food was delivered. But with all that being said, the food was tasty and we felt very at home. Waking up to the view of northern Thailand countryside was beautiful. Would highly recommend this method of transportation for anyone traveling between the cities, wanting to maximize their time in the country.

I was in Bangkok early so it was very easy to collect my ticket a week before departure. (Just make sure you bring your passport to the 12Go Office to do this.) Then just turn up to Hualamphong Station before the train is ready to leave, walk towards the train on the relevant platform and the guards will point you in the right direction. I was in 1st class, and the facilities were fantastic and very clean! The train left right on time and the overnight journey was very comfortable. Would easily recommend this way of travelling to anyone.

We would have given a 5star review, but getting ripped off on the food and beverages left us with a bad impression. We order 2 orange juice (which were awful) and a coffee (which was lousy) and a tea (which was decent) and were asked to pay 340 Thai Baht (equivalent to $15 Canadian). Brutal! Everyone should be made aware of this scam on an otherwise great train experience.

Everything was great. Service was expceptional, lots of smiling Thai ladies and I had the most amazing sleep. Food was better than I expected it to be; however I didn’t realise that was at additional cost (not a problem for me as it’s still much cheaper than being in London aha). We departed within 3 minutes of our departure time and I stepped off the train at the exact arrival time that was printed, so an extremely prompt, on time! The ONLY downside for me was that due to travelling alone I was unable to use the onboard shower/toilet facility without leaving my cabin unattended as the lock was internal only. I was able to was using the sink in my room when I woke up but holding onto my wee was a little uncomfortable! Overall though, an excellent trip and I would highly recommend it if trying to figure out how to get between BK-CM. Happy travelling!

Amazing train ride. First class sleeper is definitely worth it. Relaxing and not as bumpy as other trains I’ve been on. This is the #9 train btw. However, since this is the night time, don’t expect amazing views or so. You will get a few hills in the morning when reaching Chiang Mai though. There’s a shared shower, and 2-3 restrooms. Your tv in the room will also show the status of each of those. Heads up, not much for non Thai speakers to watch on the tv. Room includes a power port, and each bed area a USB port.

Nice train with very clean sleepers. Staff was very friendly and tried to help as much as they could (they only spoke thai but hey... we're in Thailand :)) the food on board was ok, the a/c was quite cold but you could regulate the airstream so that wasn't a problem. It's an experience and gets you a far distance without wasting huge amounts of your time.

We took the night train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai in 1st class private compartiment. It’s nice and private . Walls are thin so you will hear your neighbor snore or talk loud if they do . The food on board is not nice so bring your own snacks. Alcohol is not served and forbidden on board . The orange jus that the lady gives you when you arrive is not free so if you don’t want to pay the next day just say no . The screen in the compartiment didn’t work properly si you can’t see what’s available to eat . I suggest you go directly to the restaurant to see what’s available because if you adked the staff after they offer you to look at their set menu they can be very annoyed and rude. It’s very cold at night so bring some warm cloths (the blanket provided is not enough )

The tickets from Bangkok to Chiang Mai were easy to book and pay for in advance via 12Go Asia from Australia. The staff were friendly and the train was very clean and secure. The adjoining doors between cabins are great for families. Train staff helped us with getting our bags onboard. The toilets were easy to find and clean. Onboard staff were friendly and the sleepers had plenty of room for bags. Food was average. For the overnight sleeper you could easily eat before you boarded and bring your own snacks. We thought the orange juice given when we boarded was complimentary and were surprised to be charged later for it. Would definately travel by train this way again. Yes, wear a jumper is cold onboard .

The sleeper car was as comfortable as could be for having to be on a train for 12 hours lol. We took the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The room has 2 places to charge your phone. I would recommend bringing a sweater (it gets cold on the top bunk), iPad or books and snacks. They only provide one small bottle of room temp water. Very pleased with everything. Thanks!

The gentleman helping us in first class was terrific. He made the beds up and helped again the following morning. The cabin was ample for 2 people and very clean. We had dumplings from the restaurant car and coffee the next morning - no complaints there. I'm sorry but the beds are very hard to sleep on so we didn't sleep well. I would still do it all again though because it was a great experience and very reasonably priced. The lovely train man also unloaded all the heavy bags on to the platform. Well done Thai railways

Loved our 1st class sleeper car - however, when I booked this trip I wanted the 1st class sleeper, none were available so I booked the 2nd class. I looked at the website a few days later and there were first class sleeper cars available, all I wanted to do was upgrade but they wouldn't let me. I had to cancel my original booking and book the 1st class and even though the website says you will get an 80% refund they only gave me about a 37% refund. So I ended up spending almost $200 for us to stay in the 1st class sleeper, it was worth it.

12goasia service ace. Train, fist class sleeper, very clean and smart but the coldest train journey I have ever had as air con outlet immediately above top bunk. Conductor reluctantly parted with second blanket, but even this wasn't sufficient as i didn't sleep at all. Other passengers were complaining too. Please pass on comment to SRT that passengers would be more comfortable if the air con was not turned down so low.

I was very impressed by the service from 12Go! We were able to find your well marked office to pick up our tickets several days before the trip. Not knowing what to expect, we arrived much earlier than we needed to, to be sure we knew where to go, and t that point there were no 12Go t-shirts around, but we found our train car and cabin very easily. Your representative made his rounds on the train itself before we left, making sure you clients were set and where they were supposed to be. The ride was great, the cabin very comfortable, the train took off exactly on time and arrived exactly on time. We will use your services again in a heartbeat!

Train was spotless. Beds comfortable and no hassle from stewards trying to sell anything. As this is a new train, all the furnishings and appliances were in good order. The only downside was the A/C was freezing cold but nothing a light jacket or the included blanket couldn't solve. Journey was 13 hours and on time from Bangkok. Arrival was actually 10 minutes early. Not as easy to meet fellow travellers as this is a private 2 berth cabin with fully lockable door, but we had lively neighbours so we chatted and became friends... Definitely recommended as the best way to journey to Chiang Mai at a great cost.

Treated ourselves to first class. Easy ticket pickup and met by two who put us on the train. Very clean compartment with a tv. There was a comouterised food order which I used, the food didnt turn up so eventually I walked down to the dining car and ordered. Food was exoensive for what it was in comparison to local prices. Bed was very comfortable and overall a very good trip. Only cost us £35 a head. A good experience.

Great experience for my family. 12Go set us up with adjoining first class cabins. Very easy ticket pickup and they met us on the train platform to make sure we got set up with every thing we needed. Each of us had our own bed and we slept well. The food in the dining car was very affordable, about $10 US for plenty of food and drinks. The line to order food was long, but the staff working the dining car was very fast. For westerners and those used to airport security, you'll be shocked by the complete lack of screening of baggage and people at the Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok. The only complaint we had is the temperature control system in our cabin did not maintain the temperature very well, it was hot then cold, hot then cold and there is no temperature control for the individual cabins. We also had some roaches in our cabin, probably due to the food waste in the trash bins. Overall, a wonderful experience and 12Go made it easy!

What a pleasing experience right from arrival at Hua Lamphong, boarding the train, quality of the train, compartment, toilet & showering facility and finally arrival at Chiang Mai. Train operators in the U.K. Could learn something from the standards you provide. Train staff were especially helpful & good humoured. Like your StarTrek doors at either end of the compartment.????

What ought to have been a great trip, was spoilt by a few easy to fix things. Two of the things I most enjoy about Thailand is the friendliness and cleanliness where it counts. Sadly the (Hua Lamphong) above ground station smelt of urine and was filthy. Totally unlike all the othe Metro, BTS Skytrain stations throughout Bangkok. Secondly the attendant/guard for the first class sleeper carriage was lazy, rude and even swore at my 57 year old wife when asked to convert the sleeper compartment into its night time bed arrangement. Within 45 minutes of departure from Bangkok, he covered his “office” window with black plastic so he could not be seen, locked his door and went to sleep until 30 minutes before arrival in Chiang Mia. His rudeness caused such distress that it ruined any pleasant experience we had hoped to gleam from the trip. It’s far cheaper and more comfortable to fly. Travelling by train should be to experience the countryside and locals. I certainly wouldn’t recommend anyone to travel in a first class sleeper on train 9 to Chiang Mia. The train itself was clean and it should have been a great trip.

We traveled as a group of 6 people including children. We couldn’t fault 12Go.Asia’s service. So simple to use with clear and easy to understand communications. I will (and have already) recommend their service. The sleeper trains cabins were very clean and comfortable. The restaurant was more of a cafe style with microwave style food. Perhaps having the beds run parallel to the train tracks would alleviate travel sickness.

Great service, comfortable train. One suggestion: the luggage storage compartment in the station looks quite shabby, and was a bit expensive (240 Baht for 3 bags). A place to store your luggage for people who book with 12go would be nice. But we had an overall great experience.

Travelled 1st class sleeper on No.9 train. Comparable to overnight train from Munich to Venice. Just enough room for luggage under bed. Ate tea at the dining car-microwave asian meal but quite good. Good cup of tea in the morning. We turned our airconditioning off to sleep,this worked well. Maybe provide a bigger blanket so you can fold it in half& have double thickness. Ordering through 12GO was easy,they gave updates & collecting tickets was simple. Nice girls in the office. Would use again.

Excellent service. On the new #9 train. Had first class ticket, so got a private cabin. Excellent facilities, private toilets & shower with soaps for first class ticket holders. Wash basin in cabin, plenty sockets to charge phones. Shame you can't control the AC in each private cabin, however wasn't too cold. Beds aren't the comfiest but you are travelling in a train so to be expected. Food cart on bored not many options so take snacks. Private cabins allow you to control the lights. Staff are helpful. Train left on time and arrived on time also. Would recommend and do it again! Excellent views in the morning of the mountains.
