Passenger reviews out of total 31,731 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.

My first time traveling by sleeper train in Thailand. What a great experience, the train was delayed by 1.5 hours but that did not detract from an easy, enjoyable and comfortable journey. The coach transport from the station and subsequent ferry journey was also comfortable and enjoyable. In all, we had a great experience and will definitely book more journeys via 12go Asia.

I booked a lower berth sleeper on the train. There was no option for first class only second. I was told that the lower berths were sold out but I saw at least 3 empty ones on the train. There was no mention on my confirmation that I was going to be in an upper berth. I was ok with it but I received 62B refund. I would've rather known that I was in an upper berth. There should also be a first class option on the website. The travel agent tried to tell me that first class is sold out 3 months in advance but I bought a first class ticket less than 2 weeks ahead of time in high season.

★★★★☆
Perfect trip really as we were lucky enough to have front seats with crazy amounts of leg room! Given seat numbers when checking in so try and get there first to take advantage of this. We left at 9pm and lights were switched off almost immediately after leaving so could go to sleep. The staff also brought around blankets! 1 stop at 1.30am for food at a big food court with plenty of choice. Arrive at pier at 5am. Cattamerang doesn’t leave till 7am(ish) but kitchen, coffee shop and mini mart all open at 5.30. Nice journey, straight forward. Only downside is the seats got quite uncomfortable after about an hour into our 8 hours on board.

The overnight trip on the sleeper train was very nice. Even though the lights stayed on the entire trip, the dark red curtains make it easy to sleep. Most couples sleep on the lower berth and put their bags on the upper bed (upper berth). The food was good and the train attendant assistant was nice and woke us up 10 minutes prior to our destination. I would definitely do it again.

★★☆☆☆
Everyone from the staff was friendly and seemed to care. Due to language issues, breaks and transfers were communicated poorly, so quiet a few times I didn't know where to go or what we were waiting for. The seats on the bus were uncomfortable and as soon as the person in front of me moved the backrest, there was almost no leg space. For me, it was impossible to get any sleep on the bus ride. The 1,5 hour wait for the boat in the middle of the night was a torment. However, bus and boat departed and arrived pretty much on schedule.

Really efficient service, excellent staff. Only let downs were there was no pit stop on the 6 hour coach drive so no option to stretch our legs for a few minutes. Also, the toilet was blocked on board the coach. I know it’s Thailand & things like this happen, but not being able to go to the toilet in all that time did cause some discomfort!

NEVER AGAIN Our tour had 2 buses. One of them broke after 1 hour of the trip and we were told to get on the second bus. And we had enough seats. Why would they needed 2 buses? The buses are old and smelly doubledeckers, not comfortable. All asian people got seats on the second deck in the front. White people got first deck by the toilet (and it smelled disgusting). As we changed bus to the ferry (catmaran) we didnmt expect it would be a tough ride. It was a challenge not to vomit and it was hard to move because the ferry was jumping up and down at the speed of 50-60kph. We arrived 1.5 hours late. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. We ended up booking flights for the return trip to avoid going through this hell again.

Good service - bus was as comfortable as a bus can be, as long as you have something to use as a pillow the chairs recline almost flat. I was a bit confused before starting so if you’re travelling from Bangkok airport it cost me 500baht for a taxi to to the check in point and takes about 1-1.5hours. Then you get the bus straight to the ferry (I wasn’t sure if I got a bus and then also a train) with a stop off mid point. Guess the ferry ride is weather dependant as for me it was smooth and easy!

+ the bus was acceptably clean + most staff were reasonably helpful and pleasant - ticket collection, luggage, and boarding was a kind of chaotic (but it worked) - there was an approx. 2 hour wait at the Chumphon Lomproyah ferry terminal (but there was a minimart, coffee shop, and restaurant) While not perfect, I would still recommend the service to those looking for an affordable route from Bangkok to Koh Tao and the neighbouring islands.

12goAsia works great. The tickets were ready for us the office near the station in Bangkok, just as they told us. The train, bus and boat took off exactly on time.Of course waiting for the bus is boring ad 04.00 in the morning, but we knew this in advance. We do not know how, but we got in the wrong bus and were therefor dropped at the wrong pier. After 1 phone call however we were picked up by minivan and brought to the right ship.

Great experience booking through 12go asia and travelling to Koh Tao. Ticket collection was very efficient and the stages of the journey were well explained. The sleeper train was clean, quiet and well run. I would recommend not buying food on the sleeper train; it was overpriced and unappetizing! Also, the carriage lights stay on overnight for safety reasons so you may want to take an eye mask. As it's a sleeper train there are no announcements of the stops but someone will come round a couple of minutes before your stop to give you a heads up. The ferry transfer was great. We had about a 45 minute wait at Chumphon but there was a nice little cafe in the information centre to get a drink and some breakfast. The ferry itself was a rough ride but only to be expected. Great value for money and would definitely book again.

We could've left Bangkok later, since the ferry only departed two hours after the bus arrived. The place we stopped in the middle of the bus trip didn't meet the lowest hygienic criteria. Someone in the bus sitting next to us took his shoes off, making the bus smell really bad. I thought I was gonna pass out. No one could connect to the Wi-Fi. All in all, bus was comfortable and the trip is affordable.

Good trip. Take care at the train station as one board was not showing arrival platform! Nearly missed the train .

bus Express, Songserm
★★☆☆☆
We had to leave bangkok at 7:00pm but they arrived 1:30 late. We arrived in Chumphon at 3:30am and had to wait 3 hours for the ferry. My question is: maybe it would be better not to go so early (they are always late anyways), and not to wait so much time for the ferry?

The boarding process was hectic and confusing and there was a lack of communication about when we were moving paces and if we were delayed. Additionally the ferry ride was terrifying and choppy
