Hi,

Bus is far quicker than train, catch the bus from the bus station, sorry I don't know the prices. Train - look at http://www.seat61.com/Malaysia.htm

Enjoy Malaysia - I do!

In Hat Yai locate the Kings Hotel. Across from that hotel is a travel agency that can book rides to KL for you. This hotel is close enough to the train station for you to walk. If you are just arriving in Hat Yai why not spend the night at that hotel and continue your journey the following morning.

The next big city for you in Malaysia is Butterworth/Penang. The train from Hat Yai goes to Butterworth and on to KL. At the Butterworth train station there are also buses that go to KL. In the Penang area you can find travel agencies that can arrange rides to KL. Many backpackers stay in the Penang area.

One time passing through Hat Yai and on to Singapore I used a local Thai mini bus to take me to the border. I walked across the border (immigration out of Thailand and then immigration into Malaysia) and got a taxi on the Malaysia side to take me to Butterworth. (No money changer at that border crossing.) I was traveling with a friend and had someone to pay half of the taxi fare. The train out of Hat Yai was not convenient for me and taking the taxi was a faster way to get to Butterworth and on to Singapore.

Bus is usually cheaper than a train. The price will be what it is when you need the ride. Personally if you are traveling from a long distance to Hat Yai I would spend the night there or spend the night in Penang/Butterworth. Unless you have a pressing need to be in KL by some particular time.

Agree with the above posts.

I have also done the Hat Yai to Penang minibus trip several times but can't remember how much it was, it has been about 3 and half years since I last done that trip but it is not expensive and going from Hat Yai to KL will be cheap. I have done the trip in reverse in a VIP coach and was worth it.

The above post mentioned Kings Hotel, I have also stayed there a few times.

Travel Tips for Hat Yai

Buddhism

by phil_uk_net

One of my fondest memories was finding a small Wat while I was walking around Hat Yai. I sat inside for a while as it was a very peaceful environment and began reflecting on Buddhism and what it meant in real terms to the Thais. I wanted to find out more about the religion.
While sitting there with these thoughts going through my mind a monk walked over and gave me a small book titled "Buddhism in a Nutshell". It was perfect for what I wanted! I offered him some money but he refused. I left a donation in the box at the temple.

Go to Nathawi

by l_joo

On the bus I came across a Malaysian guy told me to visit Nathawi, 45 minutes from Hatyai town by bus. I ask why. He said everyone go there to look for the super monk, so famous in town. The super monk reside in a temple, nobody never heard of him. He is capable of anything. He can see your face, ask your name and he can immediately reveal everything about you. He said, everyone go to see the super monk to seek help in pursuing success and happiness, blah blah blah....You should go too, or else rugi.

Wat Hat Yai Nai

by phil_uk_net

This is home to a large reclining Buddha, the 3rd largest in Thailand apparently, and a small mausoleum with a souvenir shop in the base.

It is a little way out of town so you need to use a local taxi or tuk-tuk to get there if you don't have your own transport. The cost of getting there should only be 10 - 20 Baht so don't listen to Tuk-Tuk drivers around the station who ask for 100 - 150 Baht. They are just trying to rip you off. Walk to an area away from the station where these pirates prey on farangs and find an honest driver.

Gold

by phil_uk_net about Various

There are loads of Chinese gold shops around Hat Yai. Personally I wouldn't be seen dead wearing anything from one of these shops as I have no desire to look like a used car dealer or a pimp. On women a small amount of subtle gold jewellery can look okay.

From Danok to Haytai

by kenningst

If you are travelling from Malaysia pass Sadao border, take a short walk to Danok (only about 5 metres walk) and look for 7-11 convenient shop. Right in front of 7-11, there is a small table set up. Walk to the person at the table and say you want to get to Haytai. For only 50 BHT, they will take you to your hotel in Haytai. They will take you in their air-conditioned mini-van. Taking a taxi will cost you about 400 BHT. This is the cheapest method i know to travel from Danok to Haytai.
