"HAT YAI" - The Southern *PHENOMENA*

Truth be told, Hat Yai may well be one of the least interesting cities in Thailand. Its a relatively modern invention resulting from the construction of the railway linking Thailand to Malaysia and Singapore in the nineteenth century. Hat Yai is where the two lines running up either coast of Malaysia meet to form the single line up to Bangkok. It remained not much more than a rail yard until the 1960s, when its proximity to the Malaysia border made it an important trading town.

Given its lack of any historical or cultural sights, its somewhat surprising to find that Hat Yai boasts a large number of hotels and hosts hoards of visitors each year. Many of these visitors come from Malaysia. Each weekend the town fills up with weekenders who spend much of their time in the city's many markets.

Despite the lack of any significant sights of its own, Hat Yai's central location, plentiful hotel rooms and wealth of transportation options make it a reasonable base from which to explore the deep south. The town does have a certain buzz, especially at night when all the tourists are out shopping.

So guys, post pics, news , info or anything u want about Hat Yai here

I didn't know that Hat Yai is that big... I thought it was a small town full of houses and beach-side hotels

I havenot been to Hatyai and I am always thinking that Hatyai has more
high buildings than Chiangmai. But by seeing the pictures posted here,
I think the difference between Hatyai and Chiangmai is similar to what
Bangkok and Manila have.
Manila has highrises denser than Bangkok in the CBD area,
while Bangkok has more highrises than Manila and they scatter all around the city. Hatyai has denser skyline than chiangmai, but chiangmai has more number with a better city infrastructure.

Anyway, I wish I could go to Hatyai and find out if my thinking is true or not.

Yeah the Hat Yai 'CBD' is pretty tight... maybe because the city is relatively young?
