ETS Gemas Padang Besar Schedule - KTM Train

From the 10th October 2015 a new Electric Train Service (ETS) started operating from Gemas to Padang Besar, the border station between Malaysia and Thailand.

This new high-speed train service travels at speeds of up to 160 km from the state of Negeri Sembilan, south of Kuala Lumpur, to the small north western state of Perlis.

You can use this service to travel from the south of Malaysia to get to places like Langkawi Island via either Alor Setar Station or Arau Station, both just a short trip away from the ports that operate regular ferry services out to Langkawi.

If you want to go all the way into Thailand, you can cross the main land border close to the Padang Besar Railway Station and either get a taxi to Hat Yai or a local bus or stay the night in Padang Besar.

There are also new shuttle trains to Hat Yai, or you can connect with the International Express Train from Padang Besar to Bangkok.
