The trip went so smooth and Everything in time. 12go, easy going, Stuff very Nice and helpful. The night train was cosy and clean. The train was on time. Lomprayah transfer with bus and ferry to Ko tao was on time and Very easy. The ferry was clean and felt very safe. We were on The main deck where chairs were more comfortable. And there was air condition. We travelled with 4 children age (4,6,9,10). They All liked it. I would recomend The trip.

The Chairs are terrible, few space for the leggs, the air con was ok, not too strong, but it was very very difficult to sleep. There is a stop in a place with very good Thai food cook right away. No sleeping but It was cheap!

Trip was fine. The guy at the office in Bangkok told us to set an alarm at 4:00 because the train should arrive at 4:15. We did so and had to wait till 5:30 in a (sleeping train). This was bad but apart from this the traintrip was fine.

Train ok standard. They will not wake you before arrival even if the conductor says so. You have to check in at the Lomprayah counter at the train station in chumpon. There is a tourist agency/cafe across the road that serve breakfast while waiting for bus. Don't eat the omelette. It is cooked in advance and I got sick. Good journey!

train #85.2 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways, Jul 7, 2019
12go organised everything beautifully. The train trip to Chumphon was comfortable but less pleasant than expected due to unexplained 3 hr delay. We all got up at 4 am and waited until after 7 in the middle of nowhere before arriving in Chumphon. We still made the bus and the ferry as planned, and arrived in Koh Tao at 9 am as expected.

This service was great. The only thing I would say is that if you find it hard to sleep on coaches, you won't sleep on this! The chairs only recline about 45°, but other than that, good. Lights went off straight away, driving was smooth, nice length pitstop at 1am for half an hour at the service station. There is a toilet on board downstairs.

The journey was really good and on time. We got the blankets so it was warm during the night. We had one stop for eating around 2am.

The good things: The bus and the boat left on time. The bus was clean and quiet. The boat was confortable. The bad things: in the bus, we felt the bad smell of the toilet. We had to wait for almost 4 hours the boat at the harbour (which is so stinky). At the harbour, you must pay for the toilet, for charging your phone, for the wifi,....
