Two additional trains will connect Bangkok and Padang Besar, Malaysia. Yesterday’s journey started. The SRT runs 200 trains daily, mostly in the south. 52 trains run daily in Thailand’s south, 46 in the northeast, 36 in the north, 34 on Mahachai lines, 24 in the east, and 8 on Mae Klong routes. The new trains will convey Thais and expats to the Malaysian border and enhance southern tourism.
Since COVID-19 eased border constraints, the Thai government wants Malaysians to visit Thailand. Hat Yai-Padang Besar began service last month. 3.10pm Bangkok train arrives 9.50am next day. Many expats may have to cross the border again when Covid-19 rules lapse in Thailand. During the coronavirus outbreak, international borders closed. Subtract one hour at the border, although trains run on Thai time. The capital will send two long-distance trains to Padang Besar. Bangkok-Padang Besar trains go north-to-south and south-to-north. The other leaves at 5.06pm and arrives at 12.45pm. On the Hat Yai-Padang Besar route, two departures a day head south from 7.30am to 8.25am (number 947) and 2pm to 2.55pm (number 949), while trains run in the opposite direction at 8.55am to 9.50am (number 948) and 3.40pm to 4.35pm (number 950).
