I booked train tickets with 12go and they where sent to Chiang Mai as requested. I got a notification from ems that the packages has arrived in Chiang Mai post office. So we went to the post office to pick it up but it wasn't there. I sent an email to 12go to ask where they sent the tickets to but I never received an answers. Would have been nice to get an answer to save me a lot of time finding the tickets.

No dining car which was a surprise. Should have been notified of that in advance. Other than that comfortable, clean train and helpful porters

The Train departed on time, the trip was nice and the service friendly but we arrive at Bangkok one hour late. I supposed to arrive at 7:25 pm not at 8:20 pm. The Hotel were I supposed to collect my ticket didn't have my ticket, they sent somebody to the station to collect it. I have to wait around 15 minutes, thank god I was early at the station so that extra time didn't affect me. But was really annoy.

Driver kept TV on at MAX volume for HOURS on some stupid Thai show! I had to go there and tell him to switch it off cause people want to sleep! Another thing was the fact that on the bus there wasnt USB ports but SOCKETS! Luckily i had a socket adaptor or I would have burned the damn bus with people inside!!!

We booked well in advance (8-9 weeks) for the sleeper train departing from Chiang Mai. I know that Thai Railways only release the tickets a month before the journey but i would expect that with 12Go's buying power, you should have been able to secure the tickets we requested. You failed to secure the tickets and then offered us tickets for the inferior 5.00pm departure. We didn't really have much choice and accepted this offer. We were also informed by e-mail that because we were catching the earlier train, we were due a 600Baht refund that would be paid in cash upon collection of the tickets. When we collected the tickets, the clerk knew nothing about the refund and did not give us our cash. For us, the issue was that we planned to use the 600Baht to buy snacks/drinks for the journey from the 7/11 opposite the station. Instead, I then had to find an ATM. Overall, considering the commission you charge, I do not feel we received value for money!

Great ride as always and on-time!
It would be nice if some people on the bus was not so noisy.

Everything was very good: the vehicle, the seats, the crew, food and drinks, the stops on the road.
One thing was missing though: no WiFi on the bus - which would be of great benefit during a 10 hrs. tour. Comparison: in Cambodia, every "uggly" long distance bus does have WiFi - for free.

The booking process, collection and train trip itself was wonderful. Our carriage had separate womens toilet which meant a great deal to us women.
Departed and arrived on time which was another welcome surprise. My bed was made up for me and I slept like a log. Highly recommend aircon sleeper carriage from Chiang Mai to Bangkok.

I was somewhat stressed because I booked my flight 5 hours after arrival of the train. And we were delayed by an hour. But overall the train, the comfort and personel were great!

Scenery was nice travelling through mountain forests and rice fields.
Rather low speed/time consuming travel.
Train was old and dirty, e.g. seemed like the folding tables at the back of the seats never had been cleaned.
Food was nothing but mediocre.

We traveled with train nr 10 first class sleeper from chiang mai to bangkok. We probably had too high expectations, I was really scared because of the shaking and humping. Did not sleep at all and when we finally came to bangkok the train just stopped , we did not get any information and it took about 1 1/2 hour before we came to the station. The reason was that it had been an accident on the southern line. I was just so happy to get out . The sleeper itself was ok I guess and the toilet was clean.

The good: Bus was on time, seats reclined and had a footrest, a couple of very simple snacks were provided, as was a pillow each. Staff were warm and friendly. There was a stop at a place with nice toilets and the opportunity for people to buy food or snacks if desired. Smooth driving. Decent experience at the good value price-point.
The bad: Bus was actually at Arcade 3 instead of 2 (despite the ticket advice -- seemed like a very common error as the Bus Office for the company was located at Arcade 3 and the lady who redirected us clearly dealt with this often). Sitting in the top story and rear half of the bus near the back smelled like urine due to proximity to the bathroom, and whenever someone opened the compartment that led to it there was a pungent odour. Bathroom wasn't pleasant, but I wasn't expecting much. Thankfully my partner and I relocated to different seats and that was much more comfortable -- definitely sit far away from the toilet if the smell issue is common on other buses. Seats are designed for smaller Thai people, so if you're long legged then be aware of that. :)

The only issue I had on the night sleeper train was the aircon. Being on the top bunk it was so cold even though I was dressed from head to toe, being cold kept me awake but apart from that is was a great experience and the food we ordered was lovely. We paid 100tb each for a coffee which seemed rather excessive as it didnt really taste that great!

Ticket collection was easy, we upgraded both ways to 1st class amid the corona virus outbreak was worth every penny, train does get cold so take appropriate clothing, excellent service from 12go Asia and train staff, would definitely do it again.

This should be on your S/E Asia bucket list. The train chugging through Thailand as if from a Theroux novel. Value for the money is great, as it serves as both mode of transportation as well as hotel room (or bed to sleep in). Entertainment is out the window and the diverse crowd of international travelers you will meet. The box lunches I found to be quite good, honestly. Some have complained the price of 220B is excessive for what you can get at some street vendor in some alley. These boxes are convenient, delivered to your room and of high quality and health standards. What is that like$2? Did not like no alcohol allowed on the train although managed to smuggle some Scotch. The station in Chiang Mai was insufferably hot, no free wifi. There were some decent food choices outside the station ( great khao soi and coconut water). The stall in the station seemed to sell varieties of instant noodles, not gourmet. Some nice architecture. The train was comfortable and on time.It was a $200 B taxi (30 minute ride) to my mediocre hotel but that is a reasonable price. It was worth every baht but could use some modernization.

Can't get past the fact the first class sleeper was so filthy!
