Hatyai Shopping

Hatyai is and has always been the prime shopping and commercial hub of South Thailand. As mentioned, it has a few interesting local markets with a wide selection of goods for sale including handbags, knock-off (copy) goods, DVDs, electronics, ‘brand-name’ clothing, and footwear, not to mention fake designer jeans. Take a good look at the merchandise and compare prices before committing to a purchase and by all means bargain the price down as a western face invites escalated prices in this town. As for ‘legitimate’ goods and the real stuff, Hat Yai hosts a great number of shopping malls and department stores such as Central Department Store Hat Yai (the latest arrived in 2013), Lee Garden Plaza (with its multiplex cinema, games arcade and Karaoke booths popular with Thai teenagers), Robinson Department Store (one of the longest-established large store in Hat Yai), two Tesco Lotus supermarkets, two Big C supercentres, and more; those are the places to score marked-down brand-name shirts and jeans as well as accessories. There always seems to be one promotion or another going on in department stores here. Hat Yai is also a good place to buy precious metals and jewelry and is the centre of gold trade for the region.

Hatyai Cable Car

Hat Yai Cable Car is located in the municipal park along with the Hat Yai Ice Dome, Hat Yai Observatory, Hat Yai White Guan Yin and Phra Phutthamongkol Maharat. It is a steep drive up to the cable car station but you can also go by bus from the Hat Yai Ice Dome. The bus ride prices are: Thai : Adult – 100 THB, Child – 50 THB Foreigner : Adult – 200 THB, Child – 100 THB A round trip on the cable car cost 200 THB connecting only two stations, Phra Buddha Mongkol Maharaj (พระพุทธมงคลมหาราช) and another at Thao Maha Phrom (ท้าวมหาพรหม). You can almost see the next station from one end of it. In a smooth flow, the cable car ride is about 5 minutes. Even on a windy day, the cable car was very smooth. This instills confidence, for I am one that is terribly afraid of heights. However, if you are afraid of the ride, there is still a panoramic view of Songkla and Hat Yai and the coffee in the station cafe is good at the price of 50 THB. Reaching the other end, just above the Thao Maha Phrom station is like an elephant statue sanctuary. The other phase of the cable car will be ready (no completion date yet) connecting all the four stations including the Municipality playground and the Hat Yai White Guan Yin statue.

Hat Yai, Thailand – What to Eat?

Hat Yai is one big food destination in my recent travels. Markets play a big part in the local’s way of eating, the concept of floating market, sophisticated restaurants and specialised food stores. It is very difficult to choose what to eat, especially on the first day. Greed really takes over the next few days. In Hat Yai the type and style of food is not hugely different to Malaysia because of the proximity. In Hat Yai, there is an interesting fusion of Thai-Chinese and Thai-Muslim. All those spicy and sourish food, make sure you have a strong tummy to take all those combination of flavours. Otherwise, go easy on the tummy. You do not worry that you will go hungry or if food places are closed. Morning and afternoon markets are generally open until late afternoon until 18:00 but do check for the specific market you are heading to, night markets go on until 22:00 or until they’re sold out, night hawkers on Supasarnrangsan Road, stalls by the road side and if desperate, 7-Eleven. 1. Fried Food There are a lot of fried food around. Especially in the hawker stalls and markets. I usually refrain from fried stuff on exception when I am on holiday. I want to try everything there is. The usual and the unusual. 2. Grilled food Food on skewers from vegetables to seafood to meat over a charcoal fire. What’s not to love? Then choose your own sauce to drizzle. My favourite is one with sauce of fish sauce, chillies, shallots and palm sugar. 3. Herbal pork stews Yes, they have it for breakfast too! Herbal stew like the Malaysian bak kut teh but honestly, I prefer the taste of the Malaysian version which I thought was more fragrant. In Thailand, this is also served with noodles 4. Roti canai This crispy and doughy pan fried bread is also something that is very common in Malaysia. What is different in Thailand is they serve this with either sugar or condensed milk instead of curry. 5. Tom yum soup Thai trip would not be completed without a tom yum soup. Minimum order 2 person. 6. Noodles Stir-fried, dry noodles, wet noodles, saucy noodles, rice noodles, wheat noodles, vermicelli, flat, thin, you name it! 7. Economy rice Cannot make up your mind? Here are some ready packed and ready to go. 8. Salads This is a little tricky to order since I do not speak Thai and I do not know what is the norm. Because there is no menu and easy way of ordering. I stood and look at people ordering and point at that. It took a little while but I did get something amazing. 9. Sushi Slightly off the Thai theme here but I like the spread of choices here. And look at that cartoon character, Doraemon! 10. Chicken Rice Quite a popular dish in Thailand. This is very similar to the chicken rice in Malaysia but no chilli and garlic sauce served here in Thailand. Quite oily eating this on it’s own without a pot of hot Chinese tea to wash it down.

Kan Eng, Hat Yai Thailand

Kan Eng, Hat Yai – This was another Chinese-Thai restaurant which we dined while on our holiday in Hat Yai. Most days while walking round the area, we noticed that the restaurant does seem to do a good trade. It was also recommended by a friend who recently went for holiday in Hat Yai. Almost all the dishes comes in either a small or large size. A very business like folder. Rice is charged at 10 BHT per person. The famous dishes are all on the first page but we have got pretty smart at looking at the dishes that the other tables have ordered. Food was amazingly quick. The menu was clearly written in English and also had pictures. I don’t speak Thai but I knew how to point. They were very reluctant about changing the dish and tried to insist that we had it instead. I would have if they were more polite and if the dish looked merely appetising. Kan Eng Restaurant (Map) 50/3 Kimpradit Road Hatyai, 90110, Songkhla, Thailand +66 (0)74-246 138 / +66 (0)74-232 798

History of Songkhla

Songkhla, a medieval pirate stronghold, is a historic, albeit sleepy town with a thriving fishing community. Another Srivijaya outpost in Thailands southern region, Songkhla was initially named Sa-thing". Previously a port and a coastal trading post where Indian, Persian and Arabian merchants came to exchange their products, the place was named "Sing Lha" after the 2 lion-shape islands at the mouth of the city's lake. At present, these 2 islands are Koh Nu (Rat Island) and Koh Maeo (Cat Island). The old part of Songkhla is located at the present-day Amphoe Sathing Phra.

Phra Phutthamongkol Maharaj Golden Buddha Hatyai

Phra Phutthamongkol Maharaj is probably something I can’t pronounce properly but it can be referred as the Golden Buddha. This is the third places of interest in Hatyai Park and this is located on top of the Hatyai Hill. You have to drive from Hatyai Ice Dome all the way up to the top (one way) and you will see this majestic Golden Buddha. At this point, you can spot the Hatyai Cable Car and also the beautiful scenic view of the Hatyai city.

Hatyai Ice Dome

A couple of years ago, Nakhon Hatyai Municipality jointly with the Tourism Authority of Thailand had this crazy but interesting idea of creating an Ice Dome to attract more tourists locally and internationally. They wanted to build an Ice Dome but not just an ordinary Ice Dome but to be one of the best in the region! Thus, they invited the best ice sculptors to create the ice sculptures in Hatyai Ice Dome. If you talk about ice sculpting attraction, Harbin China is the best in the world. Thus, they invite Harbin ice sculptors to create the ice sculptors in Hatyai Ice Dome. To make it more interesting, every year, Ice sculptures will be rebuilt so you won’t get to see the same thing every year. You will get to enjoy -15 degree Celsius within the Ice Dome and the Ice Dome is located in Hatyai Park (foothill of the Hatyai Park Hill) Hat Yai Ice Dome Address and GPS: Thanon Karnjanavanit, Kho Hong, Hat Yai, Songkhla 90110, Thailand GPS: 7.04067, 100.50838

泰南合艾-水上市場 Klong Hae Floating Market

泰南,一個從小到大玩樂的地方,到合艾的次數可以說絕對比起曼谷來得多。再次回到熟悉的城市,依然微笑朝氣的面孔,那感覺是多麼的親切。近年來這城市有了些變化,多了幾家咖啡館,新餐廳,夜市和一些新去處。熟悉的小吃街,發現攤子有再慢慢的蔓延著,感覺是感動的。 號稱泰南唯一的合艾水上市場,位於宋卡郊區河畔,離市區約4公里路,車程約20分鐘。最近再度回到這地方,發現遊客多了,但船販卻變少了,精彩度大不如前。 合艾水上市場Klong Hae Floating Market,主要以小吃為主,但還是會有些服飾和紀念品的攤子。一般小吃飲料20-30THB就有交易,價格還蠻親民的。 合艾水上市場和曼谷一些水上市場有些不同,這裡的船販都將船隻停靠在岸邊。而且由市區到水上市場有段距離,除了跟團外就是乘搭嘟嘟車。若選擇乘搭嘟嘟車的話 都建議包車,因為那裡真的較難找車出市區。聽說,某個單位整積極籌備打造著另一個全新的水上市場,環境與設施聽說是比現在這好,但需繳入場費。 船隻販賣的食物選擇蠻多的,小吃、主食、飲料、甜點都有,但有些攤子會重複,而且河畔人潮特別多,有點擁擠。所以購買小吃時要小心,不然會被後面擠上來的人推下河裡那就不好。 點餐后,船販會把準備好的食物放在綁在棍子的籃子遞過給你,然後只要把錢放在籃子里就可以了。 合艾水上市場 Klong Hae Floating Market 地址: ท่าน้ำวัดคลองแห ตำบลคลองแห 營業時間:周五-周日17:00 – 22:00 交通: 包車或 嘟嘟車
