If you plan to use this ETS Train from Ipoh to Thailand, the Padang Besar Railway Station is right on the border.

From Padang Besar to Hat Yai you can use the International Express Train, new Shuttle Trains or catch a local bus from the Thailand side of the main border crossing, located just across the tracks from the Padang Besar Railway Station.

If you want to catch the bus, it is important that you do not stamp your passport at the station immigration.

Instead, walk upstairs to the cafe and there is a walkway across the tracks to the main land border crossing.

Once you leave the Thailand immigration area, there is a bus stop on your right, across the road.

A local bus can then take you to Hat Yai city centre or the Hat Yai bus station for less than 50 Baht.

If you are using this train to travel from Ipoh to Langkawi Island, there are two ferry ports that you can choose from.

Kuala Kedah Ferry Terminal is close to Alor Setar Train Station and can be reached by either taxi or local bus.

Kuala Perlis Ferry Terminal is close to Arau Train Station and you will probably need to take a taxi to the port as buses are very infrequent.

We would recommend you getting off in Alor Setar, especially if you want to save a little money as the local bus to Kuala Kedah is very cheap, even though the ferry is a few Ringgit more from here.

However, if you don't like travelling on high-speed boats too much and get a little seasick, the ferry from Kuala Perlis is shorter and may be better for you.
