They were very punctual

It was noisy, cold and the light was on all night. But, but only 50 minutes delay. So that was quite good.

Good trip - six of us in minivan, spacious and well air conditioned. Took us to bus station in Georgetown town - destination within Penang could have been clearer but suspect this was a language barrier thing.

The staff were excellent, everyone was very friendly and helpful on the train. The trains are old but sturdy, and very comfortable. We did arrive 2.5hrs late which is understandable for the distance you are covering. I will definitely use this travel option again soon

The Special Express train has been the best train we've been on in Asia. Extremely clean, comfortable beds, the attendants help to change the seats over to the beds in the evening, pleasant journey, highly recommend. Note that this is the Special Express train, so it's a newer train. We haven't been on the other sleeper trains, but we will definitely only travel on the Special Express trains from now on.

I can't remember this trip, which is good - that means that nothing out of the ordinary happened, and the ride went along as planned.

Booking on 12go was easy within the app but my personal preference has always been on the web. The bus was clean and comfortable with snacks and drinks provided. There was a toilet onboard, hence no need to do many stops. Bus reached the destination on time which is a lot better than when I traveled on the train from Hat Yai to Bangkok, it was delayed for more than 2 hours!

How to get from Bangkok to Hat Yai by Train

Taking a train to get from Bangkok to Hat Yai is a safe, fast, and scenic option to travel the country. On certain routes, there are multiple train departures per day every 10 to 15 minutes. This is typical for intercity travel, while for long distance train routes there are fewer scheduled departures – plan ahead to choose the one that fits your itinerary best.

For long distance train journeys, we recommend reserving your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Buying train tickets via our online booking system will allow you to choose and reserve the best Bangkok to Hat Yai tickets.

Buying your tickets online will help you secure the trip on the selected date and avoid queuing at the station.. When travelling on weekends and holidays it is recommended to reserve tickets much earlier due to a much higher demand. During high season, train tickets sell out quickly – do book as early as you can.

These speeds of travel together with relatively short stops between stations can greatly shorten the duration of your trip.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

One of the best advantages of travelling by train is that railway stations are often conveniently located within or very near major cities and urban areas. Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.

Lastly, unlike buses and other overland means of transport, trains are very rarely involved in accidents.
