Hat Yai - South Thailand: Despite what some locals or even people at the bus station tell you, there is a local bus to the Thai border (Padang Besar) and you do not have to take a taxi (for RM25) to get there. You can catch the local bus (MyBas, Maraliner) to Padang Besar at the main bus station. There are four buses a day, but the exact time is unsure (one was leaving at 9:30am). The journey takes about one hour and costs RM4.20. The bus drops you about 200m before the border, just go straight at the roundabout (with the train station to your left) to the malay checkpoint. Just ignore the taxi drivers and follow the road without sidewalk for about 10min where you reach the thai immigration. After crossing the border you can take a local bus to Hat Yai (44.40 THB, 2h) from the small bus stop on your right. The bus can drop you at the minibus station from where you can contiune your trip.
