The best day time train to book is Train #22 which has 3 carriages of air-conditioned 2nd and 3rd class seats with the ticket price including the cost of trays of food and drink brought to your seat. This food tends to be better than the food which is served in the restaurant car on other types of Intercity train in Thailand. If you plan to travel overnight, opt for Train #24 which uses the brand new carriages introduced by the State Railways of Thailand in November 2016. The least comfortable option for overnight travel is Train #142 which has no sleeper berths or air conditioning, only fan cooled seats.
