Other transport options from Hat Yai to Trang
You can also travel from Hat Yai to Trang by train and by airplane, but neither is as a good an option as simply travelling direct by bus:
- Plane vs Bus: If you want to fly from Hat Yai to Trang you need to take a connecting flight from Hat Yai to Bangkok and then take a flight from Bangkok to Trang, which is pretty pointless as the flying time would end up being longer than it would take travelling in from Hat Yai to Trang in a bus.
- Train vs Bus: The other alternative is to take a train from Hat Yai to Thung Song Junction and then change trains to reach Trang, which is located on a branch line off the main Southern Line in Thailand. However, if you did decide to take this option bear in mind that the journey by train would take twice as long as by bus and you would need to spend a night at Thung Song Junction in order to arrive in time for either of the two daily trains from Thung Song Junction to Trang.
