First time travelling to Hat Yai, even though it is so near to my hometown at approx 200+ km away. Hired a van to drive 8 of us. Started the journey early morning at about 6am. Finally reached the border and it was a long queue to get through the Malaysia-Thailand border.
Reach Hat Yai 9am+, and it’s too early to check in hotel. We leave our luggages at the hotel and head out for breakfast and walk on the streets of Hat Yai.
After a long walk, get a quick bite at Swensens. Hat Yai used to be a good place to buy dried foods, and clothing when the Malaysia currency is strong, but now things are not that cheap anymore.
Check in Hotel and continue our shopping spree.
End of day 1. Tired and bought a lot of goodies already.
The next morning, we head out to the morning wet market. This place is huge, and they sell all sorts of things here.
Finally, we completed out shopping list. A little too much for us to carry our stuff some. Luckily the van have enough space to carry all the goodies back. Had to put some on my lap.
We then head home. On the way back we stopped at Water View Restaurant for lunch. It’s a very nice place to sit by the lake for lunch.
Bye Hat Yai!
