Seats / Beds:

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.
