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.

Tickets Bangkok - Chumphon are released 30 days in advance. It may happen that all tickets are sold because people booked long-distance trips (Bangkok - Lang Suan and further) which are released 60 days in advance.
You can purchase tickets Bangkok - Long Suan instead of Bangkok - Chumphon, so we will be able to buy them 60 days in advance and you will leave train in Chumphon.

Important note !
This train departs outside our office hours. You need to come at least one day in advance to get your boarding passes or use the shipping option, so we can send them to you by registered mail. There will be nobody at the railway station when your train departs!

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Chumphon #171

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 3.75

  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 13:00 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 2.34

  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 13:00 PM and 2018-10-21 13:00 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: USD 0.71

  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.

I wanted to travel by train to see the countryside. It's my first visit to Thailand. 12go paved the way. Don't expect the comfort of European transport. Rustic and raw even with the whizzing of carriage electric fans and ramshackle windows it opened my eyes to the beauty of Thailand's landscape. Thank you 12GO for your service. Quick, simple and great value for money. Note whilst advised to be at the station 15mins prior to departure being a little more earlier is a good idea. The train is usually standing at the platform well before hand.

Good service from 12goasia, but we only used them for one of our train trips through Thailand, as we couldn't buy it online ourselves. We managed to get our other train tickets online no problems, and only a 30 baht fee rather than a 250 baht fee per ticket. Thailand Railways accepted our overseas credit card, no problem.

In fairness 12go Asia do take the hassle out of having to go to the station the day before and buying your ticket. However it’s no big deal when you get there yourself. It cost me about 800 bhat when it should have cost just over 300. I won’t mock the service, it’s great but if you are on a budget then do it yourself!

Had a bit of a nightmare booking with 12go.asia just because they took payment but cancelled one part of the journey. Their website says limited seats but when you go to the station there is loads available. I think it's a bit like Ticketmaster in that they are allocated a certain amount. At the station it only costs THB152 (about £3.80) from Lumphong (Bangkok's main station) to Hua Hin so I'd advise to buy the ticket yourself if you are on a budget. There's no 1st class, just 2nd and 3rd, no air-con but plenty if ceiling fans and with the window breeze it was fine, however the fewer clothes the better. There's plenty of leg room in 2nd class and the seats recline. I didn't use the toilet but it's a squat situation for sure and only when the train is stationed. It took 20 mins longer than stated but no problem really. We bought food at the food court at the station (chicken breast, rice and sauce) for THB40 and it was lovely. I didn't want to risk fatty chicken on the bone with skin which is normal in Asia. Hope this helps. Only pay THB150 for the Taxi from most hotels across Bangkok (takes about 20 minutes) Happy travels. :)

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.

The train ride was great as it was my first time on this train. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it was late into Hua Hin. The train arrival times should be more accurate. Khob khun krub..
