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.

Comfy beds and clean train. Fans were turned off through the night so it was really hot, and toilets smelt horrendous. Nice staff and good food.

We bought tickets for fan train but somehow got air-conditioning train instead. Everything was fine but we’d appreciate a heads up.

Pickup tickets at 12go Asia simple and easy. It was a pity there were only upperbeds available (hot, no window). Meal at restaurant car was good.

We arrived a good hour before the journey and the train was there and we could get on and find our seats - as it was air conditioned this was great. The train was nice and clean. A man came round shortly after departure to turn the lower seats into a bed and put sheets on all the bunks. The beds were good. The bottom bunks (50 baht more) are better, they have more headroom and a window but there is no difference in length. You are also closer to the AC in the top bunk so were on the cold side at night. We expected someone to come and do the reverse in the morning but by 9 am we decided to do it ourselves - they do eventually come round. The only minor negative was that they didn't turn the lights off at night - again I think more noticeable in the top bunk. Overall the journey was great, we expected to arrive sweaty and travel weary but were fresh and rested.

Train arrived on time, beds were comfy, actually better than i thought. 4 of us travelling and it was a great experience. Departed Bangkok at 10pm so we didnt have to worry about accommodation for 1 night, got served breakfast and enjoyed the scenery as out train arrived in Chiang Mai ontime at 12.10pm....Deffinetly recommend the experience, dont have high expectations and you'll be fine. The only let down were the toilets smelt sooo bad. I suggest you go toilet before you leave bangkok.

I slept well, no problems. The upper bed had no window though so I would suggest taking the lower bed. Also no plugs. But overall I enjoyed my trip!

Once I’ve got into the train I realised the train was still the same train that was operating 10 years ago and it was an old train already back in the days. But when in started to get into the Thai country side landscape, I didn’t regret the choice of using Thai railways

This was the first experience ever of a sleeper train which was second class fan. All 3 of us in our party found the beds very comfortable and the whole experience was enjoyable. It arrived Chiang Mai right on time. Would use it again

Second class Fan sleeper train ride was a lot smoother than expected. I slept pretty well. It was a little warm in the car but not too hot. Great way to see some of Thailand's scenery before arriving in Chiang Mai.

Exactly, what we expected - due to the outdoor temperature of course the wagon was warm in the beginning and due to, the construction of course there is neither much space nor a window in the upper bed. Beds were clean and pretty comfortable. We had quiet fellow travellers in our wagon so nothing to complain about. It was easy to pick up the tickets we booked online and the staff in the Hua Lamphong office was very friendly. The route was very nice and it's really worth getting up to look out of the window by daylight. There were some breakfast options available in the train, unfortunately not much choice for vegetarians - some fresh fruits would have been a nice surprise.

Second class sleeper car started out pretty warm, but once we started moving and it cooled down outside, it was okay. Some of the windows don’t shut all the way, so there were bugs (mosquitos) getting in. Also, somehow there was dirt and bugs getting on the beds every half hour or so... guessing from the windows not shutting fully. The trip wasn’t bad, and actually went by relatively quick for 14 hours, but it just didn’t feel super clean with the dirt. Toilets get dirty throughout the trip. Beds more comfortable than expected! Friendly train staff and 12go Asia is great and easy to work with. The whole process was hassle free, just not the most glamorous way to travel... but it is an adventure :)
