    Hi , planning to go to Bangkok from Kuala Lumpur by ETS Train, but after train stop at Padang Besar need to do the transit!!
    1. At Padang Besar, how to do transit to the train to Bangkok?
    2. Where to buy the train tickets/ online?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

      You can buy tickets to Bangkok starting from Butterworth (1 train daily) or Hat Yai (5 trains daily). No online purchase is available. Buy your train from Butterworth ticket (36up) at any KTM Intercity ticket counters.

    I always like to face the ditection of travel. When we booked the tickets online we were assigned seats facing the opposite direction automatically. It seems we have no control over this situation. Very annoying.
