    Central Festival Hatyai is a comprehensive shopping and entertainment hub, offering something for everyone. Whether you’re looking to shop, dine, or enjoy some leisure activities, the mall provides a clean, modern, and enjoyable environment.

    While the mall offers a fantastic experience overall, some visitors have noted that it can get crowded during peak hours. Planning your visit during off-peak times may provide a more relaxed experience.

    Nice park, good place for jogging. The running path (red) goes around the lake and takes about 20 minutes to walk around, and is mostly shaded, which is very nice on a hot day. There's a children's playground, some food sellers, and toilets.

    We stopped here with our rental car coming from HDY Airport to our hotel in Hat Yai. It's one block off the highway down a narrow lane. While parking was easy to find in the temple complex, we walked around many temples to find the large building housing the 50’ high exposed face of the 115’ long Reclining Buddha. Circumnavigating the complete figure, we discovered its interior mausoleum.
    It’s impressive but plain compared to the splendid 151’ gilded Buddha in Bangkok’s Wat Pho.
    To exit, we needed to navigate a full block of a narrow street market to re-access the highway.

    Lots of items ranging from clothes, inner wear, bags, souvenirs, footwear etc. at affordable prices. The area is clean and well lit but it can get pretty hot so ladies, if you’re gonna take your time shopping, I’d suggest to bring a folding fan to help counter the heat. Food stalls are located on the upper level.

    I came to Hat Yai with bus and after i arrived earlier to hotel i decided to go there while i wqs waiting for check in to hotel.

    when i tried to access google how to go there, some options are with tuk-tuk and grab. but i kinda afraid to use tuk-tuk because i heard a lot scam stories, so i take grab to go there and the distance from my hotel to the place is about 10km and it cost 120bath.

    Actually my decision to take grab is BIG WRONG! because it really far from the city, no transportation and such a quiet way. when i was nearly arrived then i decided to back to the city because i worried if i cant come back because there was no transportation there!

    My Grab Driver never been to this place before and i asked her can i just take picture here for 5 minutes then we back again? Luckyly she never been to this place before and she also joine to look around the tample.

    There are a lot of dogs, and i didnt paid entrance ticket because there was nobody. Actually this tample really amazing, i really enjoyed exploring this unique temple.

    after that we back again to the city with manual order (grab).

    The waterfall was full on due to the raining season. Beautiful! Better than most that I have seen in Asia. Getting up to the next station (3) will be hard for some.

    An amazing structure and a great place of worship. I had my wedding photos taken here by a family friend and I was amazed at how clean, nice and inviting the Mosque has to offer.

    Was there on the 2nd Jun 2023. A friend of mine didn't want to pay the 200 baht entrance fee to get in. What a waste. A very beautiful and well maintain natural beauty. There's 7 level off fall but being to level 2 is good enough. Big schools of Mahseer Barb. About 25 km from Hatyai airport and the road leading to the sanctuary is excellent with very little traffic. Just before the entrance there's a cafe by the river where one can have a meal or just rest after the hike. Highly recommended and will definitely visit again and again.

    Great market- lots of locally made bits and t-shirts and Asian fashion.

    Need to be a small size or like to wear over sized t-shirts.

    Lots of food as well

    Booked a ferry from Batam to Singapore which I want to cancel. Turns out there is not cancels button to click anywhere. Many different email addresses but either no response or they say I need to use different email address. This is definitely a scam. Avoid!

    Most visitors to Hat Yai won't think of coming here but you should. It's a very informative museum with English captions and a really good collection of stuffed wildlife, rocks, seashells etc. There's even a play area with toy dinosaurs if your kids would like to play some more.
