  • When traveling to Hat Yai, this floating market was the most memorable for me. On the river, they sell and serve various foods on the boat. From traditional foods such as cakes to fast food or modern meals are available here, so many choices of foods that are all very appetizing. Which is also interesting because the price is quite cheap. This place is also beautiful to take pictures.
  • Food paradise! There’s a lot of fun things to explore here. There are a lot of things sold here, not only foods, there are also market there selling clothes, shoes, tomyam paste, accessories & much more. Street food is good with cheap price. The open table is quite clean. Most of the seller is friendly & helpful.
