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.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Sungai Kolok #171

The following refund options are available:

  1. Refund 80% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking before the ticket is confirmed.

    Amount to be refunded: $ 3.84

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the ticket is confirmed.

    Press refund button before 2019-04-23 13:00 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 2.40

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the ticket is confirmed.

    Press refund button between 2019-04-23 13:00 PM and 2019-04-25 13:00 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 0.72

  4. Cancel

    Amount to be refunded: ฿ 0

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.

Whilst the 12go experience was very good I'm afraid the train wasn't. We departed 30 minutes late, went 500 metres and eventually reversed back into the station. We then departed 1.5 hours late. No explanation was given nor was any water offered to passengers. We eventually arrived at our destination 2hours late with no apologies given. Thoroughly disappointing. I will not use this train journey again

Very colourful with all the vendors coming on board to sell food. But the track works near Bangkok delayed us a long time, and made the journey tedious an d far too long. Also, the toilet facilities were NOT fit for use. You need to upgrade !!!!!!

Martin GB live in Thailand. Wanted to experience a train journey and enjoyed it. If you are backpacking have time and want to save on costs it perfect. For 2 of us it cost us £20, left on time arrived on time. Just remember everyone has different expectations and options.

Do yourself a favor and pay the small extra for an AC car. Also, try and get a seat on the left side of the train to avoid the afternoon sun. This afternoon train from Bangkok to Hua Hin was extremely hot and uncomfortable. No AC so you had to keep the window open, dust and ash pouring in the whole ride, no blinds so the sun was intensely hot on your face the whole ride. All of which could have been mitigated with an AC car. This route stops a lot, was 25-30 minutes late arriving in Hua Hin, but got us there in the end. Each stop will have hawkers coming on selling food, drink, fruit. It's a decent way to get to Hua Hin, but the bus is probably a more comfortable and quick option.

Booking through 12GoAsaia was a good idea. Efficient and convenient. The train trip was interesting. The carrriage was full and the fans did little to cool it. However the trip was still interesting and the scenery lovely. The train arrived at Hua Hin almost an hour after schedule and I wonder if the timetable is ever achieved. Incidentally we then had to take a taxi to our destination in Pran Buri, through which the railway line runs. Pity there’s no station.

Using 12goasia to purchase our tickets was very convenient. The ticket pick up is across the busy intersection from the terminal and they give out two free bottles of water which was appreciated. The 2nd class compartment has fans only and the train moved very slowly so we were pretty hot. We also arrived an hour late. The views were gorgeous, though. All in all, not a bad ride!

Don't forget, you are paying an independent company to take the stress out of buying and organizing a Thai train journey for you. Since the Thai state railways don't offer a website where bookings can be made, it's your choice whether you like the convenience of a pre-booked seat from the comfort of your home chair or you prefer to stand in line at the station with hundreds of other Thais and buy a ticket. We found the process very professional and the tickets were waiting for us, admittedly in a building across the square from the station, but there nonetheless. The 12go.asia website did the job we paid them to do, and well at that. Whether you like the train is another matter. Our trip to Hua Hin was 2. Class, hot, but with open windows and the powerful fan, you could cope quite well. Seats are tight for a European, but perfectly clean, seat reservation worked perfectly and the conductor had a print-out of the reservation. Plenty of good Thai food is sold during the whole journey. Hey, this is Thailand, expect to arrive at your destination late, hot, sweaty, dusty and and richer for an awesome experience (scenery is wonderful). 12go.asia will take the hassle out of booking a ticket, and if you don't like the trains, well, go to Switzerland.

The ticket purchasing process was straight forward and if you are travelling in a hurry or in a group it is worth planning it and purchasing in advance, however if time is not an issue or you travelling alone then you could easily go to the station in Bangkok and buy your ticket. Our train had few seats available. 12go did the work hassle free. The train journey was good, no air conditioning but the windows were open and fans on. Food and drinks service was good and plentiful so don't worry if you didn't have time before hand. The train was 45 minutes late but didn't really matter as all is part of the experience

I was dreading journey as no ac seats left but it was great with fan & window open & wonderful scenery parts of the way and the toilets were quite clean & had paper. Downside no Cha - they laughed when I asked ! Maybe it’s hop off at a station to grab one as you can do in India. 4 hour journey was an hour late. 12go.asia offer great service - this is first of 5 train journeys so feel encouraged. Ticket pickup worked well at Bangkok & great service with follow up messages & to give free bottle of water.

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. :)
