Previously, we shared how KTMB offered an easier way to travel directly from Kuala Lumpur to Hat Yai, Thailand via train with the limited-time return of the MySawasdee special train service. 

An express train service bringing passengers directly to Hat Yai city in Thailand’s Songkhla province from KL Sentral and vice versa, MySawasdee is only available sparingly throughout the year. The most recent MySwasdee train was on 9 February for KL Sentral to Hat Yai, with the corresponding Hat Yai to KL Sentral train on 12 February.

Tickets start from RM95 and you can board from 4 other stations besides KL Sentral

The tickets are only sold for one-way i.e. you can’t buy return tickets. In other words, you need to buy the KL Sentral – Hat Yai trip and Hat Yai – KL Sentral trip separately if you’re planning to go to Thailand and back to Malaysia with the MySawasdee special train.

Besides that, there are no child fares or concessions available, with the new standard fare for adult passengers applied to all. Speaking of which, here are the fares based on the type:

  • Seater – RM95 
  • Upper berth – RM109
  • Lower berth – RM119

Moreover, you don’t necessarily need to board the train from KL Sentral, as KTMB allows you to board it from Tg. Malim, Ipoh, Taiping and Padang Besar stations too. However, do note that the price remains the same if you do this.

Besides that, do note that the ticket fare also doesn’t include any food, drink or tour packages.
