The train from Hat Yai into Kuala Lumpur was long and overnight, but it was not terrible. I met a man from Melbourne, Australia who kept me company most of the way. He had such fascinating stories to tell and offered to show me around Melbourne when I get there later in June. After a surprisingly short stop at a customs station at the boarder (I was through in all of 5 minutes) we were on our way. Next stop, Malaysia!
