Passenger reviews out of total 71,462 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.

★★★☆☆
12go offer an excellent service, used them many times and it would be great if other travel companies were to learn from them what customer service should be like. The railway staff were excellent and the bed was comfortable, unfortunately the rail carriage was old and had problems. Before leaving Bangkok the door had to be worked on as it was broken. This also happened last time I used the service. About half an hour after leaving Bangkok the train stopped and didn't move for nearly two hours, lots of banging and hammering could be heard. Because of the delay the train was over one hour late arriving at Surat Thani and subsequently I missed my ferry to Koh Samui. The staff at Lomprayah were very good and I was put on the next ferry. The ferry didn't get me to my destination until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. I have used this sleeper service (train 85) many times and it is obvious the train needs replacing with new stock similar to the Chiang Mai service. I will be using it to return to Bangkok (86 service) but it will be my last time as in future I will use Air Asia to fly instead.

Train was on time. No problem finding out where to go to get to the train on the train station as its only 9 platforms ???? no major problems. Toilets were smelly and not so good, but not too bad either. Had both western toilet and squat toilet. Was also a shower inside the toilet room, so the toilet was often wet. No one disturbing at night, beds were comfortable and clean which were great. Was able to charge our phones. Water in the sink in the room was great too, with free soap bars. We asked the train person and he told us that the train always arrives 20 to 30 mins later to surat thani than what it says on the ticket. The train was on time, but we still arrived 7.45, not 7.06 as the ticket said, so expect this. Also tickets was very easy to pick up at the 12go office that you can see from the train station.

good experiance using the night train to Surat Thani, me and my partner had a great sleep. At first you think (12) hours on a train is too much but the little cosy bed was a way sleep and I would recommend to anyone who wants to travel cheep. This a great Way to get to the islands from Bangkok.

Had a great experience on the second class sleeper train. The sheets were clean and packaged individually. The beds were made up in front of us by a friendly conductor. Glad we got the air con as it would've been uncomfortablly warm with the fan. Once the curtains were drawn, our sleeping area was completely private. The lights didn't dim during the night so take a sleeper mask if you prefer to sleep in the dark. As a couple, we booked an upper and lower berth so we had our own section and used the upper berth for our luggage and lower berth to sleep. Food was overpriced but we brought our own snacks onto the train to eat. There's a 7 11 across the road to the Hua Lamphong train station, and a restaurant next door to that where you can sit and have a beer and meal and charge your phone while you wait. We booked the train with 12Go- easy booking process and ticket collection.

★★☆☆☆
Just fly and save yourself the hassle. 2nd class sleeper train (which is their first class on this service) Was very grubby and old. I would avoid using the grubby basin or putting anything on the grubby floor. Aircon broken and very cold in the night. I had to sleep with trousers, a jumper And a jacket. I wished I had a wooly hat. Toilets are squat toilets,and shared by both men and woman. We Were sold drinks at extortionary prices by a smiling man who pretty much pushed his way into our sleeper car. There are no noise barriers to the neighbouring rooms so if they are noisy (as most Thai conversations are) you will need airplugs. Again, just save yourself a hassle and fly.

The staff were excellent. The break however we not clear on what we were entitled to eat. At the end we got to know we could eat the buffet available. Ear phones were not of good quality. We were stored at a point where nothing we available and so we did not have any choice but to accept what was available to travel to Koh Samui. Maybe a tie up with the driver??

Trip went well and sleeping “beds” also clean, but a bit hard. Didn’t sleep a lot, but my fellow travelers did, so they have a more positive feeling. The train itself is rather old, toilet very smelly and old. But on the other hand for it’s price it was worth it.

Great trip to experience the thai trains and see a bit of the countryside too. The a/c sleeper was comfortable (1000% better than the bus!) 12goasia were amazing with their efficient communication. I booked my ticket from Oz and the whole process ran very smoothly. Thank you

Le voyage en train s’est bien passé (prévoir des boules quies et un masque de nuit car les portes claquent et les lumières restent allumées). 12goasia nous a demandé si ça ne nous dérangeait pas de prendre le train suivant (1h d’écart), car le train était plein pas de problème pour nous. Lorsque nous sommes passés à l’agence récupérer nos billets, la femme était très souriante et nous a même imprimé notre billet de bus pour le lendemain ! Nous sommes très content de la prestation de 12goasia, nous l’avons utilisé pour réserver différents bus, train et mini van et aucun problèmes à signaler :)

My train was fully booked so i got put onto a slightly later train, but this was done well in advance of my arrival at Hua Lamphong with good comms via email. The problem was that when arriving at Surat Thani there is only 1 bus to Krabi and it had already gone so consider this when you are travelling Bangkok > Krabi. Despite this I very much enjoyed the overnight train experience and would do it again as it was fun to wake up in a different part of Thailand and not have to pay for accommodation for 1 night. Rather than have a meal brought to your bed, I recommend you walk through all the carriages and dine at the restaurant carriage as this is an experience in itself!

The beds on the sleeper train were very comfortable and I slept well. There was lots of room for all my luggage. The food options were great and received quickly. However I feel like a bottle of water should be complementary (like on Thailand long distance buses) since you are travelling overnight. However the train was over an hour late departing and arriving, with no explanation why. Overall I enjoyed the journey, and would take the sleeper train again.

It was a practical and quite peaceful way to get from Bangkok to Khanom. The cabins are in need of proper cleaning, it's not enough that the linens are clean... More "official" information could be useful in the cabins (price lists, how to contact staff). And we also met the whispering beer selling man in the train.

Not much to complain about as I already knew what to expect. Train departed on time 18.30 16/03/2019. It is hard to fall asleep on such a journey so it is not for everyone. You need to be aware where you are as there are no other indications of upcoming stops.

Service of your company is great. The train got us to Surat Thani so it was ok, but do not take the upper bed - it has no window and not comfy. Quality of the train is as expected, not European style, but we expected that. People are kind and I recommend to have valuable things in a small bag with you in your bad cause there is no way to lock yourself or the luggage. The delay was one hour on a 12 hour drive which is quite ok.

There came a man in the train who selled meals and beer. Two beers for 280 baht... be aware of that. We ordered breakfast and coffee and were charged 320 baht per person. No Thai prices. The cabines (VIP) were soooo dirty. We saw at least 10 cockroaches in each cabine (we booked three cabines, 6 persons). It looks like they never clean the cabines. Everything was sticky, hear on the floors and under your feet... the toilets were dirty.. The good things; tickets were “cheap”, the train was on time, the people who worked there were kind (smile, take your suitcases, making your bed etc).

They train was extremally noisy like if it was about to fall apart. Don't get me wrong, we have old trains in Poland too, but this one was just wreck :) but main reason for lower rate is that our room was overlooked during bed making and I had to ask few times to do it and we had terrible Jet lag and were tired. Plus AC was very strong, no way to turn it off fully and now we both are coughing badly. 12goasia office experience was however very good!
