Train 37 departs Daily from Hua Lamphong Station Bangkok
Train 37 from Bangkok is an overnight sleeper train service so has beds available in both First and Second class, both of which are air-conditioned.
In 2nd Class, the Lower Berths are easily the best for travelling in, as they are much wider and offer much more space, plus a window.
The Upper Berths are slightly cheaper and quite a bit narrower, so for the sake of your comfort and a good nights sleep, try to get the lower berths, especially if your are tall or larger than average.
For shorter journeys, this service provides Second and Third Class seats, in fan cooled carriages.
