Ayutthaya to Chiang Mai destination reviews

train #13 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Mar 30, 2020
Muy buen viaje, recoges los billetes en papel en la misma estación, te los tienen preparados en un sobre. El tren llego con unos 20 minutos de retraso, dentro el espacio es pequeño pero camas cómodas. Hace bastante frío aunque te dejan una colcha para taparte pero tienes que dormir con una sudadera o chaqueta porque sino te congelas. Se mueve bastante el tren porque va rápido pero se puede dormir bien. Recomiendo ir al baño en la estación porque el del tren es un agujero en el suelo horrible. Llegada puntual a Chiang Mai, si estas durmiendo te despiertan una media hora antes de llegar los empleados del tren porque tienen que quitar las camas. Te ofrecen desayuno pero no es gratis, si consumes hay que pagarlo. Muy recomendable, lo único malo el frío, pero si llevas ropa de abrigo es genial.

All lights on during a night is totally unnecessary and quite disturbing.

I traveled with number 13. As I departed from Ayutthaya, the beds were already made. My wagon was quite quiet and it was possible to sleep good.

It was a bit confusing to find the 12go office at Ayutthaya station. The trip was ok. The train departured 30 minutes later than schedule.

train #9 Class II Ladies Only, Thai Railways, Jan 8, 2020
The service was excellent, but maybe a good idea is to turn off the light, or maybe some of them during the night. Thank youu!!

Everything was perfect, we sleept well and everything was perfectly organised, only next time we bring our own breakfast. It was wat too expensive and we didnot like it.

train #9 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 14, 2019
All went smoothly. Picked up my ticket at the office in the train station, there's staff directing you for your train carriage and my lower berth was ready to sleep in. It's a little bit chilly in the AC carriages so despite they provide a blanket it's better to have warm clothes for the night. The train was 20 minutes delayed but nothing serious. You should do it at least once, but next time I'll just take the flight ;)
JO
train #9 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 11, 2019
The night train is simply awesome. We had a great night of sleep. As mentioned in other comments, the lower bert is more interesting because you don't have the light and the AC directly next to you.
WS
train #13 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 11, 2019
Journey and train itself was fine, but we feel catfished because agency takes 600baht for booking a train... which is almost 20€ thrown away... one train ticket was around 800baht so we overpaid. We recommend to book directly at the station.

Very confortable, the beds were done when we arrived at the train, it's possible to have a quick shower in the restroom, and order breakfast delivered to you in the morning. Just a little bit cold due to electric fans.

train #13 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 7, 2019
Il servizio dell'agenzia di vendita è buono ma decisamente sovraprezzato, tra l'altro non è affatto chiaro quanto costa il servizio finché non si recupera il biglietto reale. Infine a fronte del prezzo reale del biglietto di circa 800 bath si paga all'agenzia circa 1100, ovvero più del 30% in più, oltre al dichiarato servizio di ulteriori 100 bath circa. Decisamente troppo! La prossima volta mi comporterò alla vecchia maniera comprando il biglietto o direttamente in stazione o in una qualunque agenzia non on line.

Very efficient railway system. Our first class private sleeping cabin well organized and clean. Only complaints are hard sleeping pallet and we were very cold despite closing ceiling vent. Shower at end of our car was very good.
JS
train #13 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 5, 2019
Warnig, it's REALLY cold, especially in the upper beds. They are also smaller than the lower ones. And it's pretty loud. Anyway, it's a comfortable way to travel if you are prepared for it!
AJ
train #9 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 4, 2019
An awesome thing to check out and it was great traveling overnight and not missing a day in Thailand! The service was fantastic but the bed in the second class cabin was only so so. Not comfortable by any means but the hardest part was that they don’t dim the lights at all. We didn’t have eye masks so if you go make sure to take one! Overall fun to check out. Probably would fly next time!

The berth was very spacious and the bed surprisingly comfortable. I just wish they would dim the lights. It was extremely bright and the curtain does not block out any light.

Todo estupendo, el tren puntual, confortable y con mucha seguridad en la estación. Para poner algo malo en un país en que todo el mundo es muy simpático "la señora del carrito de comida" fue un poquito antipatica y con mala cara cuando le decimos que no queríamos desayunar...
DN
train #13 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Nov 25, 2019
Very helpful staff at Ayuttaya and Lop Buri but the trip itself was disappointing. The carriage became very cold overnight and the berths are a little short for anyone 6ft/1.85m tall. Next morning the train staff offered us tea or coffee, which seemed a nice touch - but later presented us with an extremely excessive bill. No added sugar could remove that sour taste...

Sleeper train first class was comfortable and seeing the sunrise in the jungle was a particular treat.
RE
train #13 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Nov 23, 2019
I get motion sick on many long journeys but I was completely fine on this train. The bottom bunk is far better than the top - much darker, roomier, and more temperate. I slept through most of the trip and was not disturbed by the movement of the train. Some people were less pleased and complained about the appearance of the train but just chill out and you’ll be fine.

Very nice trip in excellent train. We should send Dutch railway company management to learn from Thai Railway system. perfect!!
SK
train #9 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Nov 21, 2019
The only thing that bothered me was that the lights never go out on the train. They’re not even dimmed. Top bunk sleepers have a light shining right through the thin curtains which is why I didn’t get any sleep at all. Otherwise it was very clean and organized. I just wish they had turned down the lights at an appropriate time. (Like on an airplane)
