Can someone please advise me how to get across the border?
I want to travel in a 1st class compartment by night train from KL to Hat Yai.
The KTMB call centre have emailed to say that I can only go as far as Padang Basar in a 1st class sleeping compartment. They suggest that I go by 2nd class sleeping berth or seat if I want to go all the way to Hat Yai. It appears that this is on the same train!
Does this mean I must book a 1st class compartment to KL to PB, get off for customs and get on the same train again but book a seat from PB to HY ??
I am actually on my way to Krabi and am wondering if it might be easier to get a mini bus/taxi from PB to Krabi ??
