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.

Cancelation policy: Hua Lamphong to Hua Hin, Tourist train

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 0.00

  2. 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.

12go.asia service was very good and would use again. Train from Bangkok to Hua Hin should have taken 4 hours 15 minutes. It took 6 hours 45 minutes. Spacious seats and good views. Constant stream of food hawkers within the train throughout the entire journey. On average one must have passed our seats every 80 seconds calling our for trade. Could probably have put up with it for 4 hours, but not 6 plus.

Fan it may be, but in the main it was naturally ventilated, ie all the widows were open so the air could enter freely, along with all flying insects - on arrival in Hua Hin my legs were already covered in bites. Hawkers transited through the train at regular intervals, mainly offering a variety of food and beverages. Most were fair and had a fixed price for all, others tried to rip off foreigners with grossly inflated prices which were reduced a little when questioned. Beverages were fine but I would strongly recommend you take your own food - even most of the locals do. NIp into the 7/11 and get some toasted sandwiches. It was a long, slow journey from Bangkok to Hua Hin but it was a great experience. I don't need to do it again but I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't done it before. There were plenty of spare seats and I was able to move from the west side to the east to avoid sunburn. So book the day before if you can and get a seat on the east side if you are travelling in the afternoon as I did.

We arrived one hour late, the trip was hot, but that was more than compensated through all the impressions to see out of the window: from buzzing Bangkok backyards to lush paddy fields and great mountain views. And the best thing was the constant flow of offered street food!

We had a really great tour guide who told us all about Thailand’s history and the food we were eating. We went to many places that we would never have come across if we hadn’t done this tour. Our favourite was the Artist’s house where we sat on the canal feeding the fishes, it was lovely. We are great food and had fun on the canal boats. Thank you!

Wonderful service from 12GO. I appreciated the helpful reminders about how much time I had left to get my tickets. And the very nice people I dealt with when I picked up the tickets. I loved the ride. No ac which meant open windows. Lots of breeze and lots of smells. I truly got to experience the Thai countryside up close. I also enjoyed seeing and hearing all the hawkers walking through the cars selling food and drink. A terrific experience all around.

We left almost 3 hours late. And lost more time on the journey. We then broke down about 5km from the Huahin station. We could have stayed on the train with no fans working for at least another 2 hours or get off and walk. We then has to get a taxi which cost just as much as the train journey! We should have arrived at 5.15pm but have just arrived at our hotel at 11pm. Not a great journey and not one that we will be repeating!

The train seats still had trash from previous customers, although it was the station of origin, and the tray-table probably hadn't been cleaned in a week. There are people selling things entirely too frequently - effectively non-stop on a 4-hour trip. I thoroughly enjoy the train in first-class, probably because of having a room away from the perpetual onslaught of hawking. These were the only tickets available, though. I will probably skip the train in the future, when this level is all that's left. I'd rather ride in a van or something. Also, if you leave your luggage at the station, 40 minutes early is not enough to get your bag on time. They have one line for both checking in and out. Luckily for me, the train was also late.

Train journey ended up being an hr late, but somewhat expected for thailand. Biggest dissapointment was with 12goasia service. I paid extra for them to mail tickets to my hotel so I didn't have to pick them up, and even sent an email 10 days before confirming. They assured everything would be fine. Arrived in Bangkok and nothing at the hotel, sent multiple emails to 12goasia in the morning and called, no response at all. Showed up at their office just before train left and they had the tickets, and said they were busy so they didn't mail. AWFUL communication. Would have even been fine if they told us ahead of time they weren't mailing them, but not sure I would use them again, definitely not advisible if plans might change at all, or communication is important.
