Passenger reviews out of total 17,586 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.

Train was delayed(45-60min) but it was not as bad as other trains that night. It was not as clean as the night train from Padang Besar to BKK. Lower berth is wider, darker and a bit warmer which might let you sleep better. once in Bangkok, I would recommend to exit the train at Bang Sue and take the MRT. It had a stop there which took forever and in the end we had a 2 hour delay. So if you are on a tighter schedule consider this option to move faster in BKK.

Great value for money. Bus was modern and had a/c. There was one stop for 20 minutes at a modern service station so no horrible toilets! Our bus arrived in Bangkok approx 1 hour late due to traffic so do bare this in mind when booking. The bus also arrived 15 minutes early at suwannatee so make sure you get there early.

The trip was good. You have enough space in the Bus. At the middle of the trip the Bus stopped and we all got free lunch at a restaurant. This was unexpected but very good. In Bangkok the bus was delay because of the traffic in Bangkok (1 1/2 h). So always plan with enough time. At nigth the bus gets cold, but there were covers in the bus. Maybe take a jacket with you. To sum this up, this was the cheapest ticket in Thailand, but nevertheless very good!

Perfect Service from 12Go.Asia as always. Easy ticket pickup at information desk. But wouldnt recommend 2nd class. We got an older train this time and the A/C was freezing cold, sleeper was really bright all the time and berth was way too small for me. Better book 1st class and enjoy!

Got tickets at the tourist office at chumphon around 6 pm . Lady gave us tickets and instructions on where to store our luggage at the train station. I had to ask her for my 12Go Asia refund of 200 baut . Why do you do that? Train left on time and the 1 st class cabin was ok. But train staff where trying to sell us overpriced breakfast befor we could put our bags down. We ate on the chaing Mai train and knew it was not worth it. I ordered coffee to make him go away and let us get settled. Worst coffee we had in Thailand in a month here. And $ 120 baut for 2 . Cabin was filthy . I tryed to use the washroom in the morning and all I could do was gag. I had to wait till I got to the station where they charged me 3 baut . The Lampura boat bus and 12 Go Asia voucher was all good . Thailand railways needs some improvement.

12go.asia offers a well organized and reliable booking service that in my case did cost about 400 Bht. The first class cabin was clean and well organized, toilets ok, service ok, had a comfortable night. Air conditioning is too strong and cannot be controlled from the cabin, it affects in particular the upper bert, you’ll need woolens and socks. Too bad the train arrived with a delay of 140 minutes!!

Train: Train vagons are not the newest one but still ok. Cleanliness for me as a man alright, my wife saw some imperfectness. Compartments with AC can get pretty cold, be ready for that. Train sometimes brakes quickly etc. which is not convenient but in general it's alright for overnight sleep. Train was about 15 minutes late on arrival and arrived to Bangkok about 30 minutes later. 12go: They made a mistake and after not really clear communication booked me tickets for the train which leaves Chumphon before we even got there (again, they wanted to get this confirmed but even the confirmation request was wrongly communicated). But in the end they bought new tickets and everything worked for us. But it was not a pleasant situation at all at that moment.

This service does not connect easily with the early ferry from Koh Tao, especially as it doesn't always (ever?) run on time. Only some innovative planning, running, and a high speed private taxi enabled us to catch the train which wouldn't have been possible if that hadn't also been running late, thank Budda. The refreshments on the train, however, were a pleasant and enjoyable surprise and bonus.

I have to admit that the 1st class was rather disappointing. Very old train, AC very cold, but looked dirty. The beds are rock hard, so overall not what you expect for 1st class.

What mode of transportation is the best one for my route?

Flights

Flying is the fastest and often the most expensive way to travel from Chumphon to Bangkok, but with a bit of luck you can score very good deals for as little as THB 1,200.

Things to remember: Note that some of the airlines may have restrictions on checked luggage weight or require paying extra for check-in, choosing seats or transportation of oversized luggage.

If opting for a flight, calculate the time you will spend getting to and from the airports as well as the waiting time before your flight, getting through immigration in case of an international flight and recovering your checked luggage.

In certain cases all these procedures can add no less than 5 hours to your total travel time.

Airlines flying between Chumphon and Bangkok

Nok Air (นกแอร์), Thai AirAsia (แอร์เอเชีย)

Bus

Travelling from Chumphon to Bangkok overland will inevitably take longer but in many cases it is the cheapest option if you opt for a bus.

Things to remember: For a more comfortable ride opt for a higher-class bus wherever possible. These buses usually have soft reclining seats and are equipped with air-conditioning and on-board toilets.

They often include water, snacks or a light lunch into your ticket price and make bathroom stops en-route.

Companies operating bus routes between Chumphon and Bangkok

Fame Tour (เฟมทัวร์), KP Tripadvisor (บริษัท เคพี ทริปแอดไวเซอร์ แอนด์ เซอร์วิส จำกัด), Suwannatee (สุวรรณนทีขนส่ง)

Taxi

Some travellers consider taxi to be the most convenient form of overland transport thanks to flexible departure times, a possibility to choose the size of the car you need, and a hassle-free door-to-door service.

Things to remember: If you are planning to make detours during your trip, discuss it with your driver or service provider in advance as it may affect the price.

Companies offering charters between Chumphon and Bangkok

Axara Travel, BangkokTaxi24 (Magic Balloon Co LTD), Glassflower (Glassflower)

Train

Train is a often a great choice for long-haul travel especially if you opt for a night sleeper train with berths which will allow you to sleep all your journey through. To make the most of your train journey, choose the class of your ticket wisely.

Note that there are air-conditioned and fan-only carriages; private compartments for 2 or 4; hard and soft seats.
Though the upper class you get the smoother is your journey, often second class air-conditioned or fan-only sleepers are a good money saving alternative.

Van

Vans are a great alternative - or, in many cases - your only option - if you need to travel overland within one and the same province or neighbouring provinces or states. Vans ply the roads between Chumphon and Bangkok, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
