Passenger reviews out of total 159 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.

Great train ride. Well worth doing. Whilst our train wasn't overly full we saw one going the other way which barely had standing room only in the 2nd and 3rd class so worthwhile getting 1st class. Service from 12GO was great with tickets confirmed a couple of weeks out and delivered to us by our pickup from the airport. Highly recommend.
