Bangkok to Singapore by Rail Part 1 – Bangkok to Hat Yai/Butterworth

RailTravel Station

The classic journey from Bangkok to Singapore goes through three popular Southeast Asian countries, passing through historical places of worship, rice plantations and villages, along with the modern bustling metropolises embracing the past.

The journey begins from Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong Railway Station, completed in 1916. For this trip, RailTravel Station made a pit stop at Hat Yai in southern Thailand, although there is an option of transiting at Butterworth in Malaysia too. Following that, a pit stop is also made at Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, finally terminating at the Woodlands Train Checkpoint in Singapore.

This trip commences with the overnight Special Express 35 from Bangkok (Hua Lamphong) to Hat Yai,  departing at 2.45pm and arriving at Hat Yai at 6.35am the next day. This train continues on to Butterworth as well.
