Centara Festival Mall - i guess that's the only BIG MALL in Hatyai with Uniqlo, Starbucks , Pandora

"The Central Festival Hatyai which opened in December 2013 is a new dimension of the first shopping complex in central Hatyai, Songkla. Holding the position of the largest shopping mall in Southern Thailand, this mall with an area of 250,000 square meters offers shopper over 250 fashion brand-named stores and a variety of famous restaurants.", ( MalaysiaAsia )

  • Snacks - Pocky

I am a crazy pocky lover therefore ... Yes all for ME!!! but i do share :)

  • Weekend Floating Market
" Klonghae Floating Market is located in Khlong Hae in Hat Yai. To get there you can take local transport from Hat Yai City. At the floating market vendors pack their wares onto small boats and jostle with each other for the attention of buyers alongside canals. There is large number of vendors selling a big variety of local Thai food and snacks. The market also has a campaign for the environment as the sellers use bamboo tubes, coconut shells, and clay pots instead of using plastic bags or foam boxes. " (Bangkok Post)

We stayed 2 nights at Centara and 1 night at Lee Garden Plaza. I Guess this is the best area to stay around Hatyai as its at the crowded street with stalls and malls.

Lee Garden & Centara is just opposite each other.

Lee Garden Plaza 

Skyview Dinning Area

& We met someone's wedding dinner

Lee Garden Plaza is really convenient to stay as its very central and just above the most happening street. There's a mall downstairs and the stuff is like warehouse  sales forever.

Centara is great too as it directly link to the shopping mall.
HOW? you can go to their departmental floor using hotel's lift!

Level 5 : Departmental store
Level 6 : Hotel Lobby

How great right?
