Hat Yai, Southern Thailand
Website Update (13th July 2023)
I started this website sometime in 2004. It was never a massive site, but it attracted a steady stream of visitors. In early 2020 the world kind of stopped. Thailand closed its borders and Hat Yai's tourism industry ground to a halt. Considering that most visitors to this site were potential tourists interested in visiting Hat Yai, this website also stopped. After a while I started making some YouTube videos.
It's now July 2023 and after a very long absence I have decided to try to resurrect this site. So much has changed in the last few years that it will be a lengthy process. Many tourist related businesses closed in 2020 due to there being no tourists. Some reopened when the borders reopened, but for quite a few the forced closure was permanent. This means that until I finish these updates, some of the information in these pages will be out of date. I apologise for that.
When a business (hotel, restaurant, shop, etc) closes, rather than just delete it from the site it has been my practice to leave the information in place but to add 'NOW CLOSED'. This way, if you are looking for somewhere that has closed but can't find it, you will know why you can't find it.
I started creating this website shortly after I moved to Hat Yai in 2003 and there is a lot of information. If you want to find information about something that isn't listed above, take a look in the Site Map. If you still can't find what you're looking for, drop me an e-mail.
