Just an update on our train tickets. We bought our tickets for the Bangkok-Nong Khai sleeper train through Asiadiscovery (from recommendation on Seat61 website). We did this via their website, and then via email once we were in the system. We had quick replies - always from the same person for each email (not instant, but by the end of their working day. We paid via Paypal. They even refunded part of the cost as we paid too much due to changing our origin station. We were going to have them couriered to New Zealand (as we will not be in Thailand to pick them up before we travel) but this service was not available. We ended up paying $30NZ (about US$25) for Express Mail Service. The tickets left the AsiaDiscovery office on Monday and are in our hands now! (Friday). We also ordered tickets through Thailandtrain tickets but have never even had an email from them (it's been 3 weeks). If you are wanting to buy Thai train tickets, I can recommend Asiadiscovery and wouldn't bother with Thailand train tickets! Great service, really impressed, and relieved to have tickets in hand for our trip in January.
