Thai night trains

Everybody who took it once will tell you, traveling by night train in Thailand is an unforgettable adventure! The atmosphere on the train and especially in the dining car transformed into a nightclub is just memorable. Sleepers are comfortable, sheets are clean, food is good and even if the trains are usually late, it's worth it and you will save the price of an hotel night.

Information about night trains in Thailand

To be sure to get a sleeper, it is highly recommended to book your train tickets at least 8 days in advance and even earlier for peak periods like the last weekend of December, during Songkran and Loy Krathong. You can book sleepers online on 12go, a website we have tested and validated.

Take a sweater or a blanket to cover yourself, air conditioning is sometimes too strong in the train. If you can brush your teeth, you can not take a shower on the train. In general, travelers prefer the lower sllepers. And apart from the bustling restaurant car, the train is quiet and you can sleep pretty well (if you can forget the noise of the railway (or use earplugs).

What possible trips by night train?

The two most popular lines for traveling by night trains in Thailand are the Bangkok to Chiang Mai and the Bangkok to Surat Thani lines. In one direction or the other. It is generally a little easier to find tickets in the Chiang Mai - Bangkok or Surat Thani - Bangkok direction.                    

But you can take the train at any other stop. For example an Ayutthaya - Chiang Mai trip by night train will enable you to take the time to discover the ancient capital of the Kingdom before boarding to the northern capital
