About Travel to Hat Yai
Hat Yai’s main railway station is conveniently located in the busiest part of Hat Yai city which is also the part of the city where the majority of visitors choose to stay. Hat Yai, with a city centre population of nearly 160,000 permanent residents, is the largest city in Southern Thailand and a travel hub between Malaysia and the rest of Thailand. Hat Yai is a relatively new city with its origins in the establishment of a railway worker’s camp at the end of the 19th Century. Hat Yai grew slowly into a city in its own right and most of the buildings in the city centre are no older than about 30 years and are functional, rather than beautiful, constructed out of concrete. Hat Yai doesn’t have many tourist attractions in terms of old buildings, or other historical sites, but it does have parks, markets, shopping centres and one noteworthy temple with what is claimed to be the world’s third largest reclining Buddha statue.
Hat Yai is most popular as a tourist destination with visitors from Malaysia and Singapore, partly on account of its convenient location near the border with Malaysia. Malaysian tourists come to the city largely for shopping and eating out, which also has great hotels and bars and a more liberal atmosphere than is in the norm for Malaysia. Western visitors tend to come to Hat Yai only on their way to somewhere else. Hat Yai is a transit point for popular islands off the West Coast of Thailand, particularly Koh Lipe, as well the connection point on the Thai railway network for bus and minivan services to the more popular tourist town of Songkhla.
