All carriages are 2nd class seats only and are all air-conditioned.

During your journey, you will also be served with an airline style meal and soft drinks.

To be honest, this is not going to be the best food you ever taste in Thailand by a long shot.

It comes in a white plastic container and usually consists of rice, with some rather dry meat and vegetables.

You would be wise to take along some snacks of your own!
