      If you are asking about Bangkok – Padang Besar services, you shouldn’t be commenting on a Hat Yai – Padang Besar page but on a Bangkok – Padang Besar service’s instead, which link can be found all the way on the top of the page on the first paragraph. If you had missed out on that, there is also a second opportunity when you scroll down to click to view the integrated timetables. Please don’t just Google and drop your query on the first page you see and ask me to “reply soonest”, expecting to be spoonfed when already spoonfed information are available if you access the correct page.

      If you wish to get precise information, you should be asking the operator and not a blog.

      Also, if you “do want to miss the train Hat Yai-Padang Besar”, I wouldn’t need to suggest anything too right?

      But since I have typed such a long reply already, I’m still going to give you the information you want even though you have asked questions with a “?!” and a “Pl reply soonest”.
