Of the two to trains to choose from for this journey, the best choice is Train #84 departing at 17:00. Train #84 has 1st and 2nd class air-conditioned sleeper seats, which are folded down in the evening to create flat beds with a bunk bed above, as well as 2nd and 3rd class fan cooled seats.
Train #168 is an older style of train with 2nd class air-conditioned sleeper berth as well as 2nd class fan cooled sleeper berths and 2nd and 3rd class fan cooled seats. Train #168 is comfortable enough but has only a single air-conditioned carriage so booking in advance is a good idea. For some passengers the 07:35 arrival time in Bangkok of Train #168 will not be very convenient as they will have a long wait before they can check into their hotel room if they are staying in Bangkok.
