Mosques in Hat Yai

Introduction

Southern Thailand is home to a large Muslim population. I have read that Narathiwat, Pattani and Yala provinces in the deep south near to Malaysia have more mosques than temples.

Tourists visting Phuket and Krabi provinces will see lots of local Muslims and mosques. You will also find plenty of mosques in other southern provinces, especially Satun and Songkhla.

Pakistani Mosque

Address: 58 Rattakarn Road, Hat Yai, Songkhla, 90110
Map: Map 1

Latitude: N 07° 00' 34.4" (N 07° 00.573')

Longitude: E 100° 28' 03.5" (E 100° 28.058')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: I have always found the people at this mosque to be very friendly. That isn't always the case. While looking around a mosque in Nakhon Sri Thammarat one time, I was told very impolitely to get out. Many Muslims at the Pakistani mosque do actually come from Pakistan.

It's located in the same area as the fresh market very close to the Hatyai Holiday Hotel.

Songkhla Province Central Mosque

Songkhla Province Central Mosque, Hat Yai - Click for larger image

Address: Lopburiramate Road (414) between Hat Yai and Songkhla
Map: Map 2

Latitude: N 07° 04' 34.2" (N 07° 04.571')

Longitude: E 100° 29' 30.1" (E 100° 29.501')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: Due to its sheer scale this is quite an impressive building. It is located on the 'new' road between Hat Yai and Songkhla. Despite the considerable distance, it is easily visible from the Prince of Songkla University and up close it is even more impressive.

The mosque is set in a very quiet and peaceful location. Surrounded by open fields, it is close to the large canals that form part of Hat Yai's flood defence system draining rain water away from the city into Songkhla Lake. Cool, pleasant breezes blow through the mosque giving a little respite to the intense heat that is typical in southern Thailand.

It is quite isolated and there is plenty of space to park cars. I would imagine that on Fridays and Muslim holidays the mosque gets very busy. Many Muslims from other provinces make a point of visiting the mosque if they are in Songkhla province.

The mosque doesn't appear to have a name. When I asked, I was told, "mus-yit glaang jungwut songklaa" - Songkhla province central mosque.

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. Every time I research hotel prices the Agoda price is always the lowest and I have received good customer service, therefore I am happy to recommend the company to other people.

If you don't wish to pay for your hotel at the time of booking, Booking.com normally allows you to pay when you check in at the hotel. Some people prefer this method, but I have always found Booking.com to be more expensive than Agoda.

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. However, you will normally find that Agoda is the cheapest and therefore you can save yourself time and money by just booking through Agoda in the first place.
