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: Chiang Mai - Bangkok #52

  1. Refund 80% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking before 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.

Knowing how many 'scams' there are out there I was a bit hesitant to use this service at first, but now, after having used it, I only have the highest praise for 12GO Asia. The booking and payment process was quick and easy, and they replied to my request with confirmation of ticket availability in a very short time. When I went to collect my ticket on the day of my departure, the hotel where the ticket was kept was extremely quick and easy to find, and there were dedicated staff members at the entrance already waiting for me, and I had my ticket in my hand in literally less than one minute. Thank you for excellent service!

Ride was ok. There was an elderly man next to us, who obviously needed assistance, because he seemed disturbed and confused. He sat on our seats when we went to the bathroom, sneaked into our backpack and refused to leave our seats.

We picked up our tickets in Chaing Mai opposite the station and caught the 3.30pm 2nd class non air con sleeper. I have previously caught a 1st class air con and had to wear every article of clothing in my bag in order not to freeze. Never again. It was a lovely trip with 3 hours of view before dark. The bunks are very hard but that’s ok for me. We didn’t realise that the train actually stops at Don Muang airport which is super convenient. We missed the stop and had to pay 2 baht to come back. ;-)

The train ride and the bed is nice but i don't understand the cashier in the restaurant, she bring menu and ask if we want to order and after we order she asked what time we want to eat. When we go to eat, the food is cold and when we pay she ask for 10 baht from each of us.. She said that is the charge for her service. So we need to pay extra 10 baht each person but for what? If she said its about her calling us during the dinner time, its not right because she did not inform that she will charge us extra for her calling service. Please take note on this 'extra charge'. Next time please inform in advance. Thank you

Everything with the agency was great, we got the tickets immediately. However this train #52 is old and loud, I could barely sleep. Next time I will make sure to book either train #9 or #10.

Everything is good. Easy to pick up the ticket from 12go.asia. The bed is comfortable but I could not sleep due to the noise of the train.

Weirdly I got an AC cart which I usually try to avoid bevause it's too friggin cold. I thought I was in a wrong carriage but wasn't. The 500baht online booking fee could at least ensure that you gey what you pay for. It clearly lays out the descriptions on thwir site. I DID WANT THE FAN, it's December in Thailand, it's cool enough for many people :)

The train was pretty basic, sleeping was fairly comfortable and the cars were kept cool. However I did find the bathrooms quite disgusting, especially closer to the end of the trip. Also the food was expensive, not very good and cold.

We arrived at Hua Lamphong safely. The train is old and not clean. I was on the upper berth and I couldnt sleep well because there is no bar on the side to stop me from falling, in case I turn.

Horrible Trip. Sleeping option was a desaster. It was terribly cold and I had to put on long clothes (Winter Jacket included). Otherwise I wouldn't survive the night.

Food is way too expensive and said our coke was included in the price but when we were paying we were getting charged for them! Man was very rude and was calling the police on me! Disgusted with the service.

I went with the lower level fan car based on suggestions from reviews. The lower level, in my opinion is a must. That’s bc the upper level doesn’t have the window. While the fan wasn’t unbearable, I think I would have preferred the AC. It got hot, and once the bed is folded down, the curtain blocks the fan (even though you still have the open window). Overall, it was a great trip! The food was surprisingly awesome too!

Service from 12go was excellent, as usual. I'd booked a lower berth fan seat as I knew the AC would be freezing. Great choice. Clean and comfortable. Train left on time and only 20 mins late into Bangkok. At Bangkok station you can have a warm shower for 10 baht and set off refreshed for the next adventure.

I read everywhere that sleeper with fan would be better than AC considering the AC is much too cold. Now experiencing only a fan, I would have preferred the AC to make sure I wasn’t dying of heat. The actual service/customer service was fantastic, but unless you are guaranteed a lower berth for travel (so you have a window) the upper berth is much too hot to sleep. You cannot close the curtains or you will be loosing your only source of air/cooling.
