Special Express No. 24: Ubon Ratchathani to Bangkok

This is the Special Express No. 24 train from Ubon Ratchathani to Bangkok. It leaves at 7:00 p.m. and arrives in Bangkok at 5:15 a.m. the next morning. This train has the new CNR 1st Class and 2nd Class sleeping carriages and so is slightly more expensive than Special Express No. 140 train that leaves at 8:30 p.m. At the moment, there is no restaurant car on this train and you are advised to take your own food and drinks. Tickets in 1st Class are 1,320 baht for the upper berth, 1,520 baht for the lower berth, and 2,320 to book the cabin if you are travelling alone. In 2nd Class, tickets are 881 for the upper berth and 981 for the lower berth. The return journey is made by Special Express No. 23 train.

Lower bunks are always more expensive as they are slightly bigger and give more privacy. It also has a window with curtains and so you can enjoy the view in the morning while you lie in bed. The upper bunk doesn’t have a window and is nearer to the light which is on all night. It is also nearer to the air-conditioning and so it can be colder. In 1st Class, there are two berths per cabin. If you only book one berth then you could find yourself in a cabin with a stranger. The only way to solve this problem is to book the entire room.

Tickets can be bought 30 days in advance from the official D-Ticket website. Some people have reported trouble using their credit cards on the official website and have told me they prefer the agency website such as 12GO and Baolau which also have a better interface.
