About Travel to Hat Yai
Hat Yai is a popular destination for tourists from Malaysia and Singapore, but not so much for visitors from Europe or North America. What attracts Malaysian and Singaporean holiday makers is large numbers is the closeness of the city to the border with Malaysia, the shopping opportunities, restaurants, inexpensive hotels and the nightlife, which in some establishments is a little more exotic than is permitted in more culturally conservative Malaysia and Singapore.
Hat Yai itself is not one of the Thailand’s more architecturally attractive cities. Hat Yai grew very rapidly from a small settlement into a thriving city of over 160,000 people from 1924 onward when Hat Yai Railway Station opened. Most of the city’s building are concrete with a very functional design. The amentities for foreign visitors, as opposed to tourist attractions, are very good in terms of hotels and restaurants serving foreign food. Hat Yai has four notable Western style bars, all close to each other, which serve food and alcohol: The Swan, Lion Bar, Westside Saloon and Post Laser Disc Pub. These bars are all within a short walk of the main train station.
The reason many travellers will come to Hat Yai is on route to somewhere. Hat Yai is a transport hub for travel to nearby Malaysia, as well as the connection point between the Thai railway network and bus services to ferry and speed boat piers to the islands of the Southern part of the East Coast of Thailand, in particular Koh Lipe. You can travel direct from Hat Yai to destinations across Southern Thailand as well as Malaysia. Alternatively, you could just take a local bus or minivan from Hat Yai Bus Station 50 minutes south to Padang Besar and join the Malaysian rail network.
