What Hat Yai doesn’t have, however, is any major tourist attractions in the city centre itself. Hat Yai attracts quite a few visitors from Malaysia, Singapore and China for weekend shopping trips and to enjoy the city’s more risque nightlife venues, of a kind not allowed in Malaysia, but not other many foreign visitors come to the city other than to pass through on the way to and from Malaysia or to and from islands on the west coast of Thailand. Nearby Songkhla, with its beaches and Old Town area, is much more appealing as a place to go on holiday as opposed to going shopping.
