Hat Yai – Padang Besar Bus / Minivan

The local bus and minivan service plies frequently between Hat Yai and Padang Besar, Thailand via Khlong Ngae and Sadao, making it an alternative to the Hat Yai – Padang Besar Shuttle Train when departure times do not match your travel schedule.

The journey from Hat Yai to Padang Besar, Thailand takes approximately 60 minutes.

The Padang Besar town in Malaysia is across the border from the Padang Besar town in Thailand. They are two different towns in two different countries. The local bus and minivan service is a domestic service within Thailand only, and does NOT cross into Malaysia.
