From Hat Yai to Padang Besar by train

Recommended Posts

Where do I take a train from Hat Yai to Padang Besar, to the thai border? Where is the schedule? How much does it cost?

 

Not by minibus.

The shuttle leaves from Hat Yai Station, in the middle of town (7.003861, 100.46771). Cost is just Bht 50 and it takes 55 minutes. There are two shuttle trains Train No.947 departing at 07:30 and Train No.949 14:05. There are only 3rd class coaches with fans, no a/c coaches on the shuttle train.

In case you miss the train, there also are minibuses from the bus station, which drop you right at the border crossing. The ticket was 50 THB in april.

Yes, twice a day for the cheap shuttle train.

 

Hat Yai 07.30 14.05
Padang Besar 08.25 (09.25 Malaysian time) 15.00 (16.00 Malaysian time)

 

There is one more train #45. Leaves Hat Yai around 07:50 (might be running late).  What used to be the international express from Bangkok that terminates in padang besar.

 

And someone mentioned the minibus from the bus station to Padang Besar; about every hour or when full; first one is 06:00 (get there at 05:00-05:30 latest and stand/watch the line; people will be clever about the queue as the first van fills up quickly).  The booth numbers have been renovated, and the ticket prices are clearly posted. 50 or 60 baht.

If I've deliberitely said "NOT BY MINIBUS", why would I want to hear information about it?

Book at any train station, to avoid extra costs by commercial offers. You can book up to eight weeks in advance.

Not on it long enough to bother with AC and at 7:30 in the morning its cool .l take it every 3 months. There is also a train from BKk direct to Padang Besar immigration. I don't  catch it to Padang but l do on the way back to BKK. I catch the 171 to Hat Yai. Hat Yai - Padang Besar immigration platform three 50 Baht.
