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.

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.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Kantang #167

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: USD 13.16

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

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

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.

Service of your company is great. The train got us to Surat Thani so it was ok, but do not take the upper bed - it has no window and not comfy. Quality of the train is as expected, not European style, but we expected that. People are kind and I recommend to have valuable things in a small bag with you in your bad cause there is no way to lock yourself or the luggage. The delay was one hour on a 12 hour drive which is quite ok.

It would have been much better if they had turned the lights out, hard to sleep with strip lighting above your head. Otherwise, very clean, I felt safe. I just didn’t get much rest. The lower berth is much bigger and has a window so gets cool. Upper is very hot, sticky and bright

The service of 12Go is excellent! The night train from Bangkok to Surat Thani was okay. We had 2nd class sleepers with fan. They made the beds just after the train left at 7 'o clock, so if you have an upper bed sleeper, like us, one had to lay down or stand in the hall way... Then the sellers, they sell stuff until late at night, loudly saying what they sell... It was uneasy, okay but not restful...
