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 41.70

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button before 2018-10-19 18:10 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 26.07

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

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

    Press refund button between 2018-10-19 18:10 PM and 2018-10-21 18:10 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 7.82

  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.

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 :)

Overnight sleeper train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai in first class cabin (2 of - one for mum & dad and one for the kids - adjoining) was excellent. 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.

Dinner and breakfast served in the cabin for an extra 400bht and cabin crew to make your beds. even given a towel and had a hot shower. well worth the extra for first class..

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.
