The lights were on during the night. If you have a upper bed, the light will shine right above your curtains.

The beds were comfortable & clean & the chap making them was super-efficient & friendly. Breakfast wasn’t great, wanted to cancel it 10 minutes after ordering (changed our minds) & told we couldn’t (hadn’t even paid yet!). Train doors didn’t always close at stations which was stressful & being ‘bumped’ out of our First Class cabin 2 months after booking/paying for it was really disappointing. All up it was an adventure & got us to where we wanted to be.

Perfect vervoersmiddel, slapen en toch kilometers afleggen. Schoon linnengoed, bedjes worden opgemaakt. Boven smalle plekken, onder brede slaap plekken. Snel donker (augustus) weinig van de omgeving kunnen zien. Geboekt via 12go.asia, goede uitleg en service.

Train was an hour late so we had to hire a private taxi at an extortionate rate to barely make the last ferry of the night to Koh samui

If you want to save some money and get a train experience on the side, then this is the way to travel. We booked 1st class which is private room so it is easier to sleep. There is no extra comfort but enough to take a nap or proper sleep. Food is also reasonably priced and normal. Staff is friendly. If you have time and dont mind a long ride then go for it. Not bad at all.

Prima vervoersmiddel. Niks mis mee. 's avonds was het fris door de airco, daar waren we van op de hoogte. Een lange broek en t - shirt met lange mouwen is aangenaam. Ook hebben ze dekens. Mijn dochter van 5 jaar en ik hebben een bed samen gedeeld. Dit was voor ons prima te doen. Hierdoor hadden we het bovenste bed voor onze bagage.

E tickets werkten prima! Scheelt een boel tijd. We hadden graag 5 sterren gegeven als de trein niet een half uur vertraging zou hebben gehad bij vertrek en vijf kwartier bij aankomst. Personeel in de trein was erg aardig!

The train was really dirty. I didn’t sleep well, the maid was always like angry and I thought they will give us something to eat or at least something to buy but NOTHING!!! I won’t definitely repeat this!!! The worst train of my life.

The trains are comfortable, expect to be a little late on your arrival but there are people around to help with the connections. We expected a restaurant car, which there wasn’t, so have some food with just in case - it’s a long time to go hungry!

My kids loved the train journey from Bangkok to Surat Thani, we got up early and watched the countryside go by, beautiful. 12Go were great and everything went smoothly.

We had the cabin for 3 and then suddenly a young Thai biy was out in our cabin and we were ordered to switch off the lights and to close the doors that joined the cabin . We think that this boy didn't have a ticket and was a member of the family of the guard. We all stayed in the one cabin and his spoilt our journey

Transfers were fairly chaotic and got delivered to wrong ferry terminal. Thought would be easier as booked through one company but not so. Be ready to roll with it but can be challenging after 24 hours of travel
