Hua Lamphong to Hat Yai Destination Reviews

HL
The coming train information announcement was difficult to understand which made you worried that you would miss your train. The lights were on the train 24hrs and the staff and people talked very loud which made you hardly sleep in the 2nd class AC sleeping cart. Also the AC was very cold which contributed to the sleepless.

Everything super smooth. First Class Sleeper cabins are awesome, though I was impressed by 2nd Class cabin too, only a curtain for privacy but hey you're sleeping anyway!

Trusted platform to buy the train ticket. But expect service charges. The instruction to take the ticket was clear, but you need to ask around to get there. I had great time and gain more experience thru this trip.

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

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.

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.
