A November 2003 trip
to Hat Yai by Morbius
Quote: This is a gem. A grid of 4 by 6 streets makes this city tick. People are very friendly. Nightlife is a staple. Food is easily accesible. Pamper yourself with traditional Thai Massage. Take in a side trip to Songkhla. The street vendors are both colourful and aplenty.
Traditional Thai massage in Hat Yai is a must and also the foot massage. Allow yourself some time for a relaxing foot massage/vanity package...yes, it's for men too!
Cost-wise, it's a bang-for-your-buck destination. Book a Tuk Tuk for half a day (around CDN 7.50) and go to Songkhla. A nice getaway.
"Sawadee Khab" (Hello, Welcome) if you're male. "Sawadee Kha" if you're female.
"Kop Khun Khab" (Thank You) for male. "Kop Khun Kha" for female.
I recommend the money exchange at Yong Dee Hotel lobby.
