I am now in Phuket and plan to carry on my trip to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. I know there is a train from Surrathani to Malaysia. Do you have any details (frequency, time, cost)? Or is there any other overland ways to get there? Thanks!

Welcome to Travelfish.
For train timetables, you're best to go to the horses mouth at the State Rail of Thailand website. Note you'll need to head from Phuket east to somewhere like Surat Thani to pick up a train.
From memory though, in Phuket there are also direct buses to both Penang and KL.
Just another option to throw out there...
Take a trip to PhiPhi, then catch the ferry to Krabi... from there you can organise numerous minibuses to Malaysia... however, my advice would be to get a minibus to no further than Penang and then catch a coach from Penang to KL.
Coaches in Malaysia are pretty awesome... most are fitted with business class style seats and seat 3 across... Just be warned - they usually have the aircon on full blast!
The coach is probably quicker than the train as the main North-South highway in Malaysia is a pretty awesome highway!
