How can I buy a train ticket from Hualumpung in BKK to Hatyai Station????
7th September, 2010
I tried ther State Railway of Thailand website but they allow for online purchase. Can anybody suggest what is th next best thing I can do if I still want to buy online and have the tickets sent to me in Singapore? I plan to travel in Jan 2011 on 2nd class sleeping berth.

Yes the State Railway online booking facility is out of service indefinitely
Effective 1 September 2010, http://www.thairailwayticket.com will be tempolarily out of services.
Seat61 linked above has acknowledged this and offers a couple other methods.

How long will you be in Bangkok? I have purchased train tickets in Bangkok for Hat Yai one day and left the next day. This was the regular seats not the sleeper car though. It was a long ride but not as bad as I thought it would be. In a pinch, if you are in Bangkok for a while you might be able to buy your tickets in person. When I got those tickets it was when the airports were closed down in Thailand by the Yellow Shirts and I had to fly back to my home country for something I couldn't postpone. (My airline changed my ticket to leave from Singapore instead of BKK at no charge.)
On this same train trip from the Butterworth/Penang Train Station I purchased first class seats from there to Singapore at night and left the following morning.
Since you are in Singapore why not take a little trip over to the train station and see if it is possible to purchase tickets through them for the Bangkok to Hat Yai run.

Why not fly and avoid putting yourself through 24 hours of train travel.It's more or less the same price with AirAsia.You can book online immediately.
