You can also use this train to travel to popular destinations along Thailand's south-east coast such as:

Surat Thani (for the ferry to Koh Samui / Phangan), Chumphon (for the ferry to Ko Tao) or Hua Hin.

If your train arrives at Padang Besar and there is a long wait for the Shuttle to Hat Yai, you can take alternative transport if you leave the station (by pedestrian bridge on the second floor), and head over to the main land border crossing.

To take a taxi: These are available from the foot of the bridge on the Malay side of the border.

To take a minivan or bus: You will have to walk or take a motorbike taxi across the border.

You can then walk into town (or much easier, get the motorbike taxi to take you) and take a regular minivan to Hat Yai.

There is also a local bus stop just across the road from the immigration area exit point (however these buses are now very infrequent so taking the minivan would be much quicker).
