Railway Booking in Advance
13th April, 2009
We are heading to thailand around June 10th, and are planning on traveling down to Chumphon a few days after by using the State Railway service. We have read on a few places that you may need to book tickets in advance, but seen we are going in the low season, is this still necessary ?

June isn't peak season, so there is less of a need, but in booking ahead you'll get exactly the train and the seats/beds you want... Is there a surcharge for booking online?

If you decide on exact days and time, you might as well book ahead online.
However, any travel agent in any tourist frequented city in Thailand can usually book tickets with as little as 12 hours notice for around 200b commission. For me, this is a bargain for the convenience, ease, and fleixibility.
