2nd class sleeper seats2nd class sleeper seats

The fan carriages offer the best value for your money and can be up to 200 Baht cheaper than the air-con carriages, depending on the distance travelled.

The larger (wider) lower berths come at a premium to the much narrower upper berths but are worth the little extra money, but they do sell out first, so book early if you can, especially during the peak season and other public holidays in Thailand.

Also available on this service are 2nd and 3rd class fan cooled seater coaches.

These are fine for short journeys and are a very cheap way to travel.

For longer journeys the extra few hundred Baht for a sleeping berth is well worth it.
