I would like tp travel from Hat Yai to Alor Setar by bus. Does anyone know any bus company providing the route service? Thanks. Ideas of how to go to Alor Setar from Phuket is welcome. Thanks again.
You can try the ground arrangement as posted in Air Asia from Alor Setar airport to Hatyai..price at RM25 (US$7/pax) from Hatyai to Alor Setar airport:
Otherwise u can contact Konsortium Bus express which has a prominent office fronting Lee Garden hotel in Hatyai:
As far as I'm concerned there is no bus from Hat Yai to Alor Setar. But you still have several options.
1) Take mini van from Hat Yai to Bukit Kayu Hitam, and from Bukit Kayu Hitam you can get a taxi to Alor Setar.
2) Take train from Hat Yai to Alor Setar. Usually the train time is 4.00pm. The train will stop at Padang Besar for immigration checking before continue the journey to Alor Setar.
From Phuket you can take bus or minivan to Hat Yai, then from Hat Yai you can proceed to Alor Setar by mini van or train.
