train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Mar 27, 2020
Must say that overrall, it was more than a pleasant experience. The attendant that was looking after the carriage i was in was pretty helpful as in he ensured that i was awake some half-hour before the train arrived at Chumphon(i asked him to). Only one hiccup and that it would have been better if the reading light was working.

Train itself was exactly what we expected however due to it setting off later than planned we missed our ferry to Koh Tao and was unable to get a refund.

I thought is was quite horrible .... Getting the tickets was easy and we even left on time . But the journey took far more time than scheduled and there was no explanation for it ! I sat in the train from Bangkok to Chumphon for more than 10 hours instead of the 8 scheduled . The trains could also use some kind of update ! Come on , it’s the 20’s but not the 1920’s ... Never again ...

Train arrived to Chumphon late by 2 hours.
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Feb 5, 2020
Pretty easy to figure out. People where helpful. Just arrive early before hand like they suggest. It was a bit of a rush for us and we where almost late
train #39 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Feb 4, 2020
I needed to collect my tickets out of hours, because my train left at 11pm. I telephoned the 12Go Asia office in an advance to discuss options on how to do this. They very kindly organised that a night security guard could give me my ticket. Thank you!! I was very happy with this option, otherwise i would have had to either go to the office during the day, then go back (a 2-hour round-trip), then go back again for the train, OR arrive at the station 3 hours too early for my train.
But I was very disappointed to find the train was NOT a sleeper, just normal seats, so I didnt sleep - I chose a train because I cannot sleep sitting up on buses, etc, and thought night trains had flat-bed seats :(( But I dont think that the fault of 12Go Asia, except that the tickets were then very expensive for what they were - my ticket price showed 200 baht LESS than what i paid 12Go Asia, so I wasnt happy about that....

It was a very nice experience, super profissional and we even got a very traditional Thai lunch included!! Value for money really incredible, highly recommended!!
train #31 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways, Jan 28, 2020
It was a pleasant trip. The only thing is that the information screen shows a wrong arrival time. The train arrived 1 hour later then scheduled in Chumphon and you don’t know what the arrival time will be. The staff was very helpful.
Tip. Learn the people some basic English.
train #43 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Jan 14, 2020
Overall a great experience, friendly train staff and a nice journey. We received a free snack, and then a meal - totally unexpected given the low cost of the tickets! Train carriage had AC which was great to start with, but after a while the carriage was very warm and fans were turned on. Train arrived and set off on time, but we reached our destination about 1 hour late. Would use again, but make sure to allow plenty of time to make connections!
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Jan 11, 2020
Seats were quite comfortable, reclined there was the possibility to have a good nap. We arrived 1 hour later. Air condition was very strong, it was so cold during the all journey. The stop for having lunch was okay. Cleaning of the bus is improvable.
train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Jan 8, 2020
Pretty comfortable for what I was expecting, sadly I wasn’t really able to sleep because the light was shining right in my face. Was also about 2 hours late but luckily the ferry company put me right onto the next one even though I was late
taxi SUV 4pax, Thailand Limo by Datum, Dec 31, 2019
Very efficient, polite driver who turned up early and was happy for us to take two stops en route. Only quibble is that I wish that our driver (and drivers in general) would not look at their phone and send messages when the traffic is going slowly. Also the car isnt enormous for 7 hours drive. But an efficient and good experience overall.
taxi Premium, Glassflower, Dec 24, 2019
We did not get the van that is in the photos and it was a very uncomfortable ride on very uncomfortable seats.
The driver was excellent however.
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Dec 23, 2019
Old bus, arrival a bit late but in overall good trip.
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Dec 22, 2019
Llegamos a la hora. El autobús nuevo y cómodo.
train #31 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 19, 2019
Comfortable and Great seat that converts to comfortable sleeper. Plenty of room and great service from stewards
Bus VIP, Suwannatee, Dec 10, 2019
The bus and the trip was perfect, very comfortable. But it was supposed to arrive 5:50 am and the arrive 4:30!! We had to spend a lot of hours in the bus station at night! That was too bad
train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Dec 3, 2019
It left on time , arrived late by an hour. Inside train wasn’t as clean as use to be .
train #85 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways, Nov 29, 2019
we stayed in 1st class wagon, outdated train but very comfortable in itself
when you pick up the tickets in DOB building super friendly staff you explain everything well
1 min point: you have to set your alarm to get off on time in chumphon because that way you won't wake up
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Nov 25, 2019
The guy on the bus didn’t speak a word English. I got dropped off in the night on a empty street in Chumphon. But there was good airco and we stopped for a meal.
train #85 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways, Nov 11, 2019
Everything went as expected. First class sleeper is really great. I would recommend to bring your own food though. The one in the train is quite expensive for its quality.

AmaZing hospitality, free snacks and meal and nice lady knew everyone’s names and destinations
train #43 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Oct 29, 2019
Super easy handling to get the ticket.
The trip took 1 1/2 hours longer, which is caused by a construction site along the whole route. This is probably urgently necessary and also not too bad. An info before would have been quite nice.
The train itself is okay. Relatively old seats, but air-conditioned. The staff is super friendly and there is a hot meal and as much water as you need.
train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Oct 25, 2019
It was a night train in Thailand so there will be issues such as stains on the blankets and people coming along trying to sell things to you, but it was fine. Arrived an hour or so late but thankfully we didn't miss our ferry to Koh Tao so not too big an issue in the end.
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Oct 18, 2019
Nice journey.. Courtesy staff
train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Oct 17, 2019
Sleeper beds were spacious and there were clean sheets and pillows which made the journey very comfortable. Overall cleanliness could be improved, particularly in the toilets.
train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Oct 14, 2019
Train was good, beds was comfortable, but toilets was a little bit disgusting. The biggest disadvantages was 3 hours delayed, it caused that I missed my ferry. No one informed about this delay.
train #31 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Sep 22, 2019
Very Nice train trip. Possible to get sleep. Nice bed good service and friendly staf. Next time I makena choose for the night train.

Nothing especially but in the train with air conditioner, it was very cold!!
train #171 2nd Class Fan seats only, Thai Railways, Aug 19, 2019
It was exactly what it promised. BUT it arrived later.
train #167 2nd Class Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways, Aug 11, 2019
The train journey itself was pleasurable with relatively good beds and even though we did not have air-conditioning it was still doable with the heat. However, if you sleep on the top bunk, you won't get to sleep at all. The top bunk is much warmer and also very light as the bright lights of the train shine directly into your bed. The lower bunk is perfect though, as you can open the window and you are hidden away from the light by the top bunk. The beds are also relatively short. There is no food aboard the train, so remember to bring some! Also, we weren't sure but they do wake you up before you reach your destination.
train #37 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Aug 6, 2019
The train was clean and confortable, there was conditionned air, the staff were kind and helpfull.
One hour hour delay.

Bit of a delay getting out of Bangkok, but the train was fine, morning tea and lunch provided.
train #31 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Aug 3, 2019
It was our first trip with the sleep train. It was our best train trip so far. Thank you!
train #43 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Jul 27, 2019
We were ready for a 6-hour trip. It took 7,5. Staff provided us with food and drinks, thanks. And told us in time where to get off.

Positive adventure, ideal transport
Bus VIP, Suwannatee, Jul 18, 2019
Had to change the digital 12go Asia voucher to actual bus tickets at the bus stop counter. Bought the offered connecting boat tickets at same counter, which were not available through 12goA. Connection to ferry by next bus from railway station. Excellent service and comfort.
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Jul 17, 2019
Easy, comfortable trip. Good stop over.
train #85 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Jul 16, 2019
Excellent & efficient service from 12goasia and the cafe next to the office is a welcome respite from the bustle of this part of Bangkok. Train service overall good, not a load of sleep but our arrival time in Chumphon was 04:10!
Bus Express, Suwannatee, Jul 13, 2019
Was an hour late in arriving, but the bus was comfortable!
