The number 14 Express isn't a fast train. It's an express because it doesn't have as many stops, so don't think you'll be zipping through the Thai countryside at a rate of knots, you won't. We booked because the friends we were travelling with hadn't...More

We traveled 1st class overnight and I'd read some reviews so I knew what to expect. We avoided the high prices orange juice and ate our evening meal before we set off. We had their breakfasts and we're pleasantly surprised after some of the reviews....More

Hilarious and highly enjoyable. Took 13 and a half hours as we got stuck trying to get up a mountain and had to wait for a tow from another train. Wheels were spinning sparks were flying and actually ended up going backwards down the hill...scary,...More

Hi ... yup, you can book the train 60 days before travel and you need to do it then or it will be sold out! The First Class Sleeper is worth paying for as you get a little compartment for two people. On the older trains... More
