Hat Yai is one of the most visited city in Thailand.
It takes only about 1 hour flight from klia2 to Hat Yai International airport, via AirAsia.
AirAsia is running a zero fare promotion to Hat Yai for only RM 41.00 one way.
I took advantage of the offer in January 2016 and My return flight to Hat Yai cost me RM144.00. The fare inclusive of two set of Martin Yan’s Longevity Noodles, inflight meal.
There are many way to get to the City from airport. If you are on Budget, do consider taking the Public transport service called "Song-Teaw".
"Song-Teaw" is a blue high roof truck. This mode of transportation was mainly used by the locals and a bit cramp.
The "Song-Teaw" waiting area is located at the car park, outside the arrival terminal and it takes 3 minutes walk. The fare to Hat Yai city is THB 30 Bath. You pay the fare to the driver after you disembark.
It’s recommend to choose hotel near to the Kim Yong Shopping Center aka Kim Yong local Market. From the Kim Yong Shopping Center, you can walk about 5 minutes to the famous Lee Gardens Plaza Hatyai.
The "Song-Teaw" will stop opposite the Kim Yong Shopping Center. Since this’s my first visit to Hat Yai, I get the help of the local people to remind me the exact stop.
I stayed for 2 nights in Hat Yai city, before heading to Koh Lipe.
I took the same "Song-Teaw" to the Hat Yai International airport.
