      Queries On Phatthalung's Transportation And Shadow Play Puppets

      Phatthalung Jun 21, 2015 at 3:09 AM

      Hi guys, will be planning a short side trip to Phatthalung from Hat Yai this coming July. I plan to go to Phatthalung by bus from Hat Yai bus station. The only problem I am unsure of is getting back to Hat Yai from Phatthalung. I have tried searching the internet and have found out that Phatthalung has 2 new bus stations. Beside that, very little info on the bus or van schedules. Hence I need advise from you veterans out there regarding the following :

      1) I understand that I will be dropped by bus along the main road, so if I want to get back to Hat Yai, can I simply just wait for the bus along the main road in the opposite direction? Or do I need to get a bus ticket at the bus terminal?

      2) Does anyone have the updated bus or van schedules from Phatthalung to Hat Yai?

      3) As I intend to explore only Phatthalung town, is there any shops where I can purchase the shadow play puppets from?

      Many thanks guys. Look forward to hear from your soon.

    • Overnight bus to Penang

      Krabi Jun 23, 2015 at 12:20 AM


      I've been doing lots of reasearch, trying to find out about catching buses from Krabi to Penang. It seems like buses go via Hat Yai and take about 8 hours.

      I would like to know if its possible to catch a night bus and arrive in Penang in the early morning.

      I'm in Thailand for quite a short time and don't want to waste my time travelling during the day for 8 hours!

      Has anyone caught an overnight bus between these Krabi and Penang?
