About Travel to Hat Yai


Hat Yai is the largest city in the Southern Region of Thailand, and also a major transport hub for travel to and from Malaysia, as well as to West coast destinations such as Koh Lipe. Hat Yai city centre, particularly the area near the railway station, is lively with plenty of hotels, bars and restaurants. On, and near, the Saneha Nusorn Road is where the city’s most foreigner friendly establishments are to be found, including Western pub style bars and fast food outlets such as McDonalds, which are not commonly found in other parts of the Southern Region. The better hotels and restaurants, however, are generally designed to cater for the needs of Thai, Malaysian, Singaporean and Chinese visitors as they make up the majority of the tourists in Hat Yai. Visitors from Europe and North America tend to only come to Hat Yai on route to somewhere else. Hat Yai has a major railway station, bus station and lots of private tours operators. Anyone travelling from the Central Region of Thailand to the far South of Thailand and Malaysia will generally transit through Hat Yai.

Hat Yai itself has very tourist attractions except for a park with a cable car and a temple with a large reclining Buddha statue. Much of Hat Yai’s city architecture is no older than the 1960s – it’s predominantly a modern city. More interesting to most tourists is the nearby town of Songkhla, which is less than an hour away from Hat Yai by minivan. Songkhla town has a beach and an interesting old town area, as well as plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars.
