Hat Yai – Hat Yai Railway Station


Right after our visit to Klong Hae Floating Market, we requested the driver to drop us at the railway station just to satisfy our self since we didn’t get a chance to travel to Hat Yai via train. Furthermore, our next route and destination doesn’t permit us to travel by train as well. Thinking of that, a short visit to the Hat Yai Railway Station wouldn’t make any harm right? In fact, we could just walk back to hotel and catch up our dinner along the way.

The railway station is officially managed by the State Railway of Thailand and this is the largest station in the southern part of Thailand. The station is strategically and conveniently located in the middle of Hatyai City Center. It is also centrally located for the ease of transfer either by bus or van (minibus) services from nearby travel agencies. There are several trains passing through the station daily coming all the way from Bangkok, Sungai Kolok, Yala and even Malaysia (via Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad – KTMB).

Once we entered the station, we saw a bunch of security guards or maybe a local police at the station staring at us. So, we made a quick conversation by asking whether is it ok for us to walk, look or maybe photograph and they said OK.😀

Just right on time. A train all the way from Bangkok just arrived heading to Sungai Kolok (Golok).

Oh ya, we even hopped into an open air train car just to see and feel the condition of the local trains. Just a quick one. Very vintage and clean.

And, some cliché post by both of us. Without fails, of course!😀

If you are an adventurous person, you might want to discover Thailand via train just like locals especially using the Bangkok Line from Hatyai which goes via Nakhon Pathom, Ratchaburi, Petchaburi, Hua Hin, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Phattalung.  It will be sooo much fun.

  1. Dulu masa paln nak gi Bangkok pun ada fikir nak naik tren jugak.
    Tapi memandangkan masa tak berapa nak ada, dan harga tix tren lebih kurang sama dengan tix flite, maka tak jadi.

    Maybe next time. Huhu!

  2. K.e.r.i – Depend on what you prefer sebenarnya. Tapi memandangkan harga ticket flight pun lebih kurang dengan ticket train, plus with time constraint, better ambil ticket flight je kan? Tapi kalau nak try next time, mana tau sebab both of us pun tak pernah try lagi.
