I'm planning to go to Hatyai next year, but don't want to drive car.
Planning to take the train from Butterworth.
Any /k had experience riding train to Hatyai from Penang(or basically anywhere)
I want to know how the process goes, and does KTM have train direct to Hatyai? if not, where do we change train and what are the schedule of the Thai Train?
all advice are appreciated.

**edit**
Just found this tip, is this a good one?

buy ticket from KL central to padang besar, take the morning train, else u hav to spend a nite in padang besar.

once reach padang besar, go through immigration, then buy ticket to hatyai.
there is only a small window of time, u wont hav anytime to lepak or makan2 first.

Malaysian train will stop at Padang Besar
you gotta pass thru immigration booths (Malaysia + Thai), and buy train ticket from Thai coach from Padang Besar to Hatyai
simple

oh, if possible, get your traveling partner to buy the ticket while waiting for immigration clearance

ETS to padang besar > old train to hatyai

but the transit time... if your ETS arrive late you will miss the old train. the train only twice a day: morning and 3.45pm (2.45pm thai time)


if u miss the train, you will have to take the shuttle van. same price but no hindustan feeling like taking the train

Train from Padang Besar to Hatyai Junction. Before 2016 was from Butterworth. ETS from KL to Padang Besar about RM80. Bus previously about RM30 to Butterworth. Train travel cost has gone up.

Previously I took all the way to Bangkok. It will stop at Hatyai to combine with trains from Sungai Golok. Alot has changed since.

when I was there, it was a Malaysian public holiday, so the immigration was crowded
it took me and my partner 1+ hour to clear immigration
yet the Thai train still waiting until all travelers in the border station cleared, from what I heard, the Thai train will wait
