Hat Yai overview

Hat Yai  Travel Guide
The southern Thai city of Hat Yai fails to attract hordes of tourists but it enjoys a steady flow of comings and goings as it is a major transit hub. Many buses and trains use Hat Yai as a stop-over point and there are many hotels found close to the train station as well as the bus stations to make travel as easy as possible. The city is noisy and busy, although it is a far cry from the chaos that ensues in Bangkok on a daily basis. The Hat Yai Municipal Park is worth checking out and the Laughing Buddha statue located within the park has a somewhat contagious smile.
