I am planning to go to Penang Island Malaysia on a train from Bangkok via Padang Besar Border sometime around next week so had a lot of questions in my mind regarding the trains, train schedule and all. I went through few blogs and sites but all have different answers so I want answers from trusted sources or from anyone who has recently taken the trip.
My questions are only for Thailand side.I have answers for Malaysian side.
1. Do I need a special Visa if I travel via train? My last visa had "only by air" stamped into it.
2. Do I need to change the train before the border? If so where and how.
3. Train Departure and Arrival Times.
4. Price of the tickets if possible.
Thanks you in advance.
