Passenger reviews out of total 27,050 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

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.

The bus itself isn't the best. Didn't have charging stations nor were the seats the most comfortable. The service itself was great. Reached Chumphon by 4.40 AM giving us enough time to have breakfast etc.before the 6.00 AM bus leaves for the 7 AM ferry to Ko Tao

Let’s start with the positive things. The train left and arrived in Time and the aircon was working. The cabin was constructed in 1995 and is way beyond any good condition, therefore several vents for controlling the airflow were broken, several normally automated doors had to be opened manually, 2 of 3 toilets were broken and there was only 1 sink for about 30 people. The lower bed is about 1,90 Meter which had caused some problems for the larger guys in our group. To sum it up, if you can afford a flight to Koh Samui take this route.

Train was very late. There was no sleeper for which I purchased. Train ride in the a/c made up for it. Ended up paying for my ferry and bus ride twice because of how late the train was. As I looked into it after wards seems to be commen place. Sucks but I got to the ferry one way or the other.

Nice to travel with the train to Chumphon It was a little bit late 1,5 hour. But everything went well. One remark. Everything is in Thai. So you do not know where to leave the train. Advice: check the train personel and ask them to check on you Just 10 minutes before arrival. They are very willing to remind you you are almost there :)

★★☆☆☆
Despite being good value for money, this trip wasn't very good, I would have happily paid a lot more for a sleeper berth and a train that didn't get us to Chumphon an hour late! We missed our ferry to Koh Tao and had to go via Surat Thani, arriving at our destination about 10 hours after we were supposed to. We didn't get any sleep on the train as there wasn't any space to stretch out, and the Aircon was blasting all night. If you can book ahead of time and get a sleeper berth, I would say it is worth it! And make sure you allow for train lateness, it seems like it is a regular occurrence! Booking through 12Go have been great though, they were very helpful and contacted me with information whenever there was some.

Hello, I LOST / FORGOT MY IPAD IN THE BUS (seat A7). The ipad was in the little net in front of my sitting chair. Half way through the trip is sliped out of the net and i noticed it was on the floor so I picked it up and put it back in the net which must of been torn with a hole inside. When we arrived at Suwanatee station (not the terminal) we were an hour earlier then expected, we had to rush out of the bus as we had just woken up, unaware of our earlier arrival. We had to hurry to get out of the bus and i forgot my ipad. I checked before leaving the seat net and also the floor with the minimal light available and saddly didn’t see anything on the floor. It must have fallen out again and slipped across the bus floor whilst driving. PLEASE IF YOU FIND MY IPAD CAN YOU CONTACT ME AS I HAVE IMPORTANT BUISNESS DOCUMENTS ON IT. MY CONTACT: Kim SAVOYE savoye.kim@gmail.com +33(0)618454503 Address back home: 258 Impasse des Chapelles, 74450, Saint Jean de Sixt, FRANCE. I would highly appreciate it of you could contact them on my behalf to see if anyone found it or brought it to the lost and found. I have tried but I do not speak Thai.

We booked this trip to facilitate travel to Koh Tao. 12goasia was very efficient and professional with booking the tickets online. The directions for ticket pick up in Bangkok were perfect. I would definitely use this booking process in the future. Train itself was acceptable. Ran approximately 1 hr late getting to Chumphon but from what I’ve read this is fairly standard for rail travel. Staff on the train were great and we were fed both a snack and a meal. Train is a bit dated/worn and there were some bugs/cockroaches seen on the floors and trays - again I feel this is quite standard for this climate.

Great train ride air conditioning was very cold on the train. Given two meals first was a bread roll filled with green sweet custard. Second meal was lunch. It was mackerel in tomato sauce and a very hot chicken curry with rice and cup of water. Thai people wolves it down. I managed to eat half then ran out of water. This was the express train and by 4 stops ever seat was taken so you need to book. Train arrived half an hour late due to train delays on route. An interesting and enjoyable trip and would do again.

★★★☆☆
The journey was very comfortable, staff very friendly, the free food was a nice surprise. The only negative is that the bus dropped us off in the middle of nowhere when the final stop was supposed to be Chumphon bus station.
