Hat Yai

We lefted Phuket after breakfast, then start our 6-hour drive to Hat Yai. We decided to make a night stop at Hat Yai simply because we both haven't been there and we heard so much about this place, but I have to say I regretted coming here. What a dirty place and I don't feel safe at all.

Checking out from lovely Renaissance

We booked Centara Hotel Hat Yai through, in the website this is one of the nice hotels in Hat Yai but when I got to my room. Gosh ! the room looks tired, the whole hotel looks tired ! the room smells, just feel uncomfortable but what to do, I need to catch some sleep, and I believe the other hotels are even worse. 

looked nice in the picture but in real life.. yucks !! ;/

We arrived at our hotel almost 7pm. We had to stop for security check before entering their carpark. Then we decided to check out their new mall which is Central Festival Hat Yai. But because of the traffic we decided to take tuk-tuk for the first time. There were tuk-tuks in front of the hotel. We asked how much to Central Festival? The uncle said 120 Baht then husband tried to bargain but he insist that the traffic is bad, so we had no choice but to agree, but the traffic was smooth and he stopped us across the street of the Mall and he actually asked us to walked through the mall's carpark !! I was so pissed off with this uncle ! He charged so expensive then not even send us to the mall front door? First and last Hat Yai ! People are simply rude ! not like Phuket and Krabi. We had dinner at the Mall then catch one midnight movie then we took another tuk-tuk back to our hotel and on the way back there was a bunch of youngsters riding their motorcycles honking at us for about 5 minutes while following us.  I was so terrified ! It was almost 12am, so, of course u felt scared and unsafe ! So, to anybody who haven't been there but plan to go please don't ! it's not safe.
