Where to Go
Accommodation Hat Yai
There are more than 100 hotels in Hat Yai that fit the budget of any traveler from backpacker to businessman, though most cater to Malaysian and Singaporean visitors who make up most of Hat Yai’s tourists. Most of these are mid-range hotels that are fairly inexpensive and feature the necessary amenities, though they are far from luxurious. For slightly better accommodation there are several finer establishments around the more upscale Lee Gardens area. For budget accommodation, the guest houses near the railway station cater to foreign backpackers. It should be noted that because Malaysians are the primary visitors to Hat Yai, hotels are frequently booked on Malaysian holiday weekends. If you are planning a visit to Hat Yai over one of these weekends, it is best to inquire in advance to make sure that rooms are available prior to arrival.
