Sungai Petani to Thailand Trains

If you want to travel from Sungai Petani to Thailand by train, we recommend you take a Komuter service to Padang Besar, then connect to a Shuttle service from there to Hat Yai.

See our Sg. Petani to Hat Yai train page here for more information >

Or our Shuttle Trains from the border to Hat Yai Junction page here >

Once at Hat Yai station you have a choice of trains heading north to Bangkok, Hua Hin, Chumphon (for Koh Tao) and Surat Thani (for Koh Samui and Koh Phangan).

The International Express Train that used to originate from Butterworth, no longer stops at Sungai Petani and now originates / terminates at the border station Pdg. Besar.

So if you want to travel from Sungai Petani to Bangkok by train (or anywhere else on the Thai rail network), you will first have to take a Komuter or ETS to the border.

You can use this train to get to many of the popular tourist destinations in Thailand, such as Hat Yai, Surat Thani (where you can transfer to the ports for boats out to the islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan), Chumphon (for boats to Koh Tao), Hua Hin and the capital, Bangkok.

For longer distances on KTM ETS and Intercity / Shuttle services, you can pre-book your tickets either at a Malaysian Railway Station, or online from the KTM website or online ticketing agent.
