Darren,
As I read the new visa requirements, it must be a plane ticket out of Thailand within 30 days if you get the free 30 day entry permit. A train ticket to Malaysia would not satisfy them. I would not stress on this. The Immigration officials rarely ask to see proof on onward travel. You will have your return ticket, show that if asked. Good Luck.

Hey Darren,

You can purchase train tickets online from the Malayan Railway (KTM). KTM train service in Thailand starts in Hat Yai, so book your ticket for Langkawi Express (depart: Hat Yai -- arrive: Butterworth). Check the service route map.

As for cheap flights, check out AirAsia.

Hello Dar :)

Just in case u have not thought of it, there is some dodgy business going on, at the Thai Malaysian border.
It is not always safe to go over land from Thailand to Malaysia. Flying would be the safe option.
But if u do want to take the train, I dont think u can book trains in Thailand online. U can phone, or else go to the train station and just buy one. Best to buy them a few days in advance, because trains become booked up.
