I was reluctant at first to try this option instead of flying, however I'd do the overnight train in a heart beat!! Organised, comfortable and a great way to wake up in the morning, watching Thailand out the window. Amazing experience

Overnight sleeper Bangkok to Chiang Mai
Feb 2020
I took the overnight sleeper service from Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok in a 2nd class sleeper, arriving in Chiang Mai the next day. I had hoped to get a 1st class sleeper but being the weekend of the Flower festival in Chiang Mai I had to take the very last train of the day and got the last sleeper on the train. I was told on booking at the station it was a bottom bunk but on entering my coach I discovered it was the top bunk. Having injured my ankle prior to leaving UK it has swollen massively with flying and walking since arriving in Bangkok that morning. Despite showing them my problem they would not help ease this. So it was extremely painful and difficult to get up to bunk and down. That being said I slept, it was a smooth ride, quiet, air conditioning not too fbad and great views when it was daylight. They take orders for breakfast that you pay for in the morning.

It does take a long time to travel by train, 13 hours, but it was a great way to travel to the north of the country and reasonable price too. Would recommend the journey if you have the time. I highly recommend getting grab app on your phone and on arrival in Chiang Mai order a taxi through them to your hotel or hostel. I did this and accepted the 70 baht price. Whilst waiting I had 3 quotes ranging from 300 to 620 baht for the same journey.

Overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai
Jan 2020
First class sleeper train was awesome. Booked tickets through 12GOAsia and it was seamless. The compartments and washrooms were spotless. Very cramped quarters but that was expected. It was a truly unique experience and wonderful to watch the sunrise over the mountains. Staff were good. Wonderful experience

Overnight train Bangkok to Chiang Mai - excellent!

We took the overnight sleeper service from Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok in a 1st class sleeper, arriving in Chiang Mai the next day.
What a service. Comfortable cabin, smooth ride, quiet, air conditioning not too fierce and great views when it was daylight. A smashing way to travel to the north of the country and reasonable price too. Would recommend every time.

Thailand trains are not the quickest way to travel in Thailand but are certainly the cheapest and most scenic way to travel.
So if you are not in a rush give it a try .it is easy to book and the views of Thailand are amazing.
Give it a try.

Wonderful experience.
May 2019 • Family
Bought first class tickets for our jouney from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. Had actually bought the tickets online from India on the Thai railways website. Everything was very well organised. We got a private cubicle in the first class coach. The coach was very well maintained and had an attendant too. Slept very well at night. You get to see a lot of the Thailand country side. Would definitely like to go again.

Terrible service of rail and 12Go
Feb 2020 • Family
We bought via 12GO service tickets for 1st class night train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. Route to Chiang Mai was on time with relatively new train, however full of extra expenses like cold mango juice on welcome, water drinks left to your seats, as well as dinner/breakfast. Route from Chiang Mai back to Bangkok at 1st class and same price was serviced by train produced in 1996 year by Hyundai Korea in dirty conditions, started with 30 delay due to technical problems and rwachex Bangkok with 2,5hour delay. Due to this delay we missed prepaid in 12GO bus from Bangkok to Koh Chang and neither SRT or 12Go felt guilty and offered us any cost refund or support in finding ither solution to reach the idkand, after we missed prepaid bus due to rail's delay.
To sum up, if everything goes OK, everyone offer you services with high prices, but once you pay and face some difficulties, you are left without any support from paid service providers and you have to pay next enourmous amounts to solve the issue youself!

Overnight train from Chiang Mai
Feb 2020 • Couples
Took train 10 from Chiang Mai to Don Mueang airport Bangkok - amazing! Had first class sleeper compartment with two bunks made from comfy seats. Compartment also had a little wash hand basin and table. Toilets were at the end of the carriage and were always clean and well supplied with paper and soap. There’s also a shower with shampoo and shower gel! The lovely lady looking after us gave us a wake up call before our destination and helped us with our luggage. There’s a restaurant car but we didn’t use it. Would recommend this train - had a lovely sleep!!
