Not the most modern train, but all good. Comfy beds, toilets have been cleaned regularly. Some Outside vendors come in to sell you some food and drinks. The whole car had only 2 power outlets, and you need to be lucky to be at the right bed (if you need). Overall, absolutely enjoyable ride!

Excellent service for both buses and trains. However I discovered that I had paid by mistake for a 24 hour travel insurance that only covered personal accident and not lost or stolen baggage? This seems a bit steep at 70 baht and would only be useful if the train crashed or something.I think you should make the insurance box a little less covert on the booking website. Otherwise well done but please make it clear that the insurance is not compulsory.

Great value sleeper train. Train ran to time, only 15 mins late after 15+ hours. Clean bedding and even toilet paper in the Asian style loo. It's not easy to sleep on any train. I prefer non AC as I can open the windows and don't like AC anyway.

It left a little late but we arrived an hour early. The bus stops all the time for various reasons but you can’t get off. In 14 hours we were allowed off once at 2am. There needs to be a couple more times you can get off.
