FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I buy a train ticket in Thailand?
You can buy tickets at any train station in Thailand. It doesn’t have to be the one you are travelling from or to. You can also reserve tickets by calling the hotline 1690 but you have to go and pay within 24 hours. SRT now have an online booking site but it is limited. You can also try 12go.asia for some routes.
Can you take a train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai?
There are daily trains between the capital and Bangkok. It takes about 11-14 hours. Most people take the overnight sleeper which arrives in the morning. This saves money on a hotel. But, these days, budget airlines can often fly you cheaper than a sleeper train.
