Hotels Deals

I live in Southeast Asia and have booked hundreds of hotels in this region. I have spent many hours researching hotel prices to get the best deal and I always end up booking through Agoda. Their rates are far lower compared to other companies or booking directly with hotels. Give them a try!

Hat Yai Bicycle Shops

Introduction

When I first arrived in Hat Yai in 2003 there weren't many shops that sold good quality bicycles. The supermarkets, such as Tesco Lotus, have always sold cheap, low quality bicycles but if you wanted something better there weren't many options. There were so few bicycle shops in Hat Yai that I thought it would be useful to list them on my website.

That was 2003. Now it is 2016 and that situation has changed completely. Thais like crazes and for the past few years there has been a huge cycling craze. Whereas I hardly ever used to see Thais riding bicycle, I now see lots.

I have to say that many of the machines available these days are beautiful. I was a cycling fanatic as a teenager and then I went on to study Mechanical Engineering and therefore appreciate good quality engineering. Some of the bikes for sale are like works of art.

There are all different types of bike available including mountain bikes, lightweight road racing bikes, and the new style of bikes with huge wheels and tyres. Prices range from a couple of thousand Baht to well over Bt120,000.

At one time Hat Yai Mountain Bike also stocked a few electric bikes, but on my last visit I didn't see any. No doubt, if you are interested in buying an electric bike any shop should be able to order one for you if they don't have any in stock.

Bike lanes have been created in cities through Thailand and to supply the enormous demand for bicycles lots of shops have opened.

I started to add some new shops to my original list but with so many shops these days I thought it would be better to list them here on a separate page.

As I said above, cycling has been a huge craze in Thailand and over the years I have seen many crazes in Thailand. At the peak of the craze many shops open, but as the craze fades many of the shops then go out of business. I suspect that quite a few of Hat Yai's new bicycle shops will close sooner or later.

If you have some useful information about bicycles in Hat Yai feel free to contact me.

Comments: After lots of bicycle shops opened during Thailand's cycling craze, I predicted that many would close shortly afterwards. My prediction wasn't wrong. I'm not psychic, but for as long as I have lived in Thailand I have seen this type of thing many times.

There is a sudden craze for something and in order to cash in on the craze lots of shops open to satisfy demand. However, as soon the craze ends most of the newly opened shops then close because there is no business.

Comments: This shop is quite a long way from the town centre. If you leave town through Hat Yai Nai and turn left to go to the airport it is on the Airport Road just as you turn.

It is quite large and well stocked with different kinds of bikes from various manufacturers and also some children's bikes. The quality of the bikes is good and the prices are reasonable.

After visiting several shops for a bicycle for my daughter, I ended up buying one here because it was the best quality for the best price.

Comments: Whenever there is a craze in Thailand (as there often are) lots of shops open, but then many close as the craze fizzles out. After the cycling craze hit Thailand many new bicycle shops opened, but I suspected that quite a few would close when the craze started to fizzle out. That's exactly what happend with this one.

Comments: Of all the bicycle shops that have appeared in Hat Yai since Thailand's cycling craze commenced, this seems to be the largest.

As with most of the other new bicycle shops in Hat Yai, there is a wide range of bikes and also a wide range of accessories.

The problem when buying a bike in Hat Yai these days is that you are spoilt for choice. There are touring bikes, road bikes, racing bikes, mountain bikes. Side-pull brakes, cantilever brakes, disk brakes. Suspension or no suspension. Big wheels, little wheels. Skinny tyres, fat tyres. Folding, fixed frame. Etc, etc, etc.

Vespiario (NOW CLOSED)

Vespiario, Hat Yai - Click for larger image

Address: 36-38 Niphat Uthit 1 Road, Hat Yai, Songkhla, 90110
Telephone: +66 (0)74 233169

Map: Map 3

Latitude: N 07° 00' 23.1" (N 07° 00.385')

Longitude: E 100° 28' 09.6" (E 100° 28.160')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: This shop sold Vespa scooters and it also stocked an excellent range of pedal-powered bikes. They had some beautiful Bianchi road machines and also folding bikes from Chevrolet and Louis Garneau.

However, like many Hat Yai businesses, it suddenly closed one day. The biggest problem running this website is trying to keep the information up to date because new places open and old places close all the time.

I don't know why Vespiario closed, but there is another Vespa dealer in Hat Yai and lots of bicycle shops. I see very few Vespa scooters on the roads, so with a limited market they were probably difficult to sell.

Someone told me that the business has moved elsewhere and it is now called All Wheel Ride, but I'm not sure where it is exactly and I'm not sure what is sold. If I find out I will add the information here.

There used to be another bicycle shop in Hat Yai called All Wheel Ride (see above), but it also closed.

Get The Best Deal On Your Hat Yai Hotel Room

Listed opposite are some of my personal recommendations for hotels in Hat Yai based on budget. I have lived permanently in Hat Yai since 2003 and my recommendations are based on a lot of local knowledge.

Each link will take you to the relevant page on the Agoda website where you can see photos, read reviews, and book on-line. I use Agoda to book all of my own hotels in Thailand and the Southeast Asia region. Agoda hotel rates are usually always the lowest and I have received good customer service, therefore I am happy to recommend the company to other people. Here is some analysis I did regarding booking hotels in Southeast Asia.

Booking.com used to be more expensive than Agoda, but when I have checked hotel prices recently I have found their rates to be quite competitive. Unlike Agoda, you don't need to pay at the time of booking with Booking.com - you can simply pay at the hotel when you check in. Also, Booking.com show you total prices whereas Agoda show you a price and then add on 17% for tax and service charge.

If you want to compare prices between different on-line travel agents (OTAs) for a specific hotel, you can use a company such as HotelsCombined.
