This is a 3 days 2 nights weekend itinerary and generally it starts from Friday until Sunday. We hope you like this itinerary and we will do more itinerary stories in the near future.

Day One – Friday

There are three options to travel to Hatyai from Malaysia; by car (self-drive), by train or by flight. Either way, you will reach Hatyai around noon time or afternoon depending on your traveling schedule.

Check in your hotel, preferably in the city. Take a short rest and time to flex your muscles and time to discover Hatyai!

Day One – Friday Afternoon

Since it is your first day and probably tired of traveling so the afternoon session will be focusing in the city. You can find many small massage shops in the city and the prices vary but it is cheaper than Malaysia and Bangkok.

For first day afternoon, why not do some shopping in the city?

1) Odean Shopping Mall Hatyai

Odean Shopping Mall Hatyai is one of the prominent shopping malls in Hatyai. It is located near the central of the city and you can walk to Odean if you are staying in the city.

What you can find here is local brands and some International brands that won’t break your budget. Depending on timing, there could be sales too.

Most ladies will spend time buying cheap Wacoal bras and other toiletries as most of them are made in Thailand.

There are two options for the first day’s evening. You can continue shop and chill in the city or visit the Hatyai Floating Market or you can do both.

1) Hatyai Khlong Hae Floating Market

The floating market craze hits Hatyai a couple of years ago and they are open during weekends only. Open from Friday till Sunday from 3pm to 9pm, you need to drive out or take a tuk tuk to Khlong Hae Floating Market.

This floating market is not that big but the experience of having the floating market in Hatyai that is memorable. Of course you can find many good Thai food here. We will recommend you to visit this market on Friday as Saturday’s itinerary is a full day.

At night, there are many food stalls and also stalls selling clothes at Lee Gardens Plaza. There is also a cinema in the plaza so you can catch a movie at night.

The main reason of tourists coming here is the McDonald’s, The Swensen’s Ice Cream as well as The Boots pharmacy. McDonald’s in Thailand is non-Halal so many will come for its pork Samurai Burger.
