    Favorite thing: Anyone who wants to travel from Butterworth to Hat Yai can book a seat in one of those vans which shuttle regularly between these two towns.

    At the taxi stand at foot of the stairs (from the Pg-BW-Pg ferry), you will be able to see some wooden shophouses ahead. The ticket booths are at those shophouses. You can ask the taxi drivers waiting there for confirmation.

    It only costs RM27 per person, one way. There a number of trips each day, beginning from as early as 5.30 am. The van picks up people from Penang before coming to Butterworth.

    One of the agents has this telephone numbers:
    04-3328721 and 04-3248209.

    Fondest memory: The ubiquitous Tuk Tuk, seen everywhere in Thailand with Hat Yai being no exception. The Hat Yai ones have 4 wheels and a steering wheel as opposed to the ones with 3 wheels and motorbike-style handlebars seen in some other places.

    Favorite thing: 45 minutes flights from Bangkok or 10 hours by bus. I tried both but I still prefer going there by night bus.
