Trains In Thailand - Below are the quoted rates for non air-conditioned and air-conditioned trains with sleeping berth. At night pillows and blankets are provided.  Sprinter trains are Special Express Trains without berth, but with reclining chair and air-conditioned. Trains in Thailand are clean and mostly punctual.

There are three different types of service.

First Class  contains one small compartment for two persons. This class is not available on most trains and tends to get booked out first. The compartment is a private air-conditioning compartment consisting of two sleeping berths, a washing basin. The berth is a cushion, pillow and blanket which are comfortable. Only common toilet is available (no private toilet). To own a private compartment of your own while travelling alone, then two first-class tickets must be purchased.

Second Class  is the most preferred choice. It is only a common compartment.  Private compartment is not available. Each berth has its own curtain, cushion, pillow and blanket as that of the first class. Fan or air-conditioning are available in either seat or sleeper form. Fan cooled sections tend to get a little hot at night and air-conditioning is the more comfortable of the two.  The price is higher for the lower berth than the upper berth. 

Third Class not quite as hectic as perhaps India but suitable for only the more hardened traveller. No pre-booking is possible in this class.

Sprinter Train - is a special Express train with air-conditioning and comfortable seats of reclining chairs, similar to that of the coach. There is no sleeping berth.

All classes of train have refreshment facilities and most have full catering cars with cooked meals at reasonable rates. At practically every station food vendors offer local delights from fried chicken to more exotic local delicacies.

Sleepers (Information)

First class sleepers consist of two full size bunk beds whilst second class sleepers are assembled from two facing seats to form the bottom or lower bunk. The upper bunk is a "stow-a-way" bed which is unlocked when the beds are made up. All beds use fresh cotton sheets, pillow with cases and laundered towel-like blankets.

Beds are arranged by the train staff at around 9:00 pm and they are stored away again at 08:00 am when travelling.

In both classes the beds are around 2m (6.5 ft) in length.

Safety

Travel police actively patrol every train and the incidents of robberies etc is extremely rate. The service generally has a good safety record throughout the kingdom and the "train people" of Thailand are generally very professional about their given tasks. Bags are stored beside the seat in second class which is illuminated throughout the night.

Pricing

There are different rates for different classes, services and train types. The most expensive ticket will be "Special Express" 1st class sleeper. Actual ticket rates are displayed as below.

CHIANGMAI-BANGKOK

It's easy to travel from Bangkok to Chiang Mai - Chiang Mai to Bangkok by train - the recommended option is either a convenient overnight journey in a comfortable sleeper, or a daytime journey through the countryside on the air-conditioned express railcar.  Travelling by sleeper is effectively faster than flying, and less hassle, and it will save you a night in a hotel too.  The scenery on the last third of the trip, up into the mountains approaching Chiang Mai, is particularly good.  Even if you take the overnight sleeper, watching the sunrise from the train in the morning can be a great experience.
