    Offers an excellent experience at affordable prices but tends to be overcrow
    Hatyai Floating Market is an excellent spot for photography enthusiast, especially the traditional architecture and picturesque scenery. The market's affordable prices make it appealing to budget-conscious visitors. While the main highlight is the unique floating stalls, the experience is still well worth the visit, even with the similarities to the street market.

    Interesting market to visit
    This is a small floating market compared to the one in Bangkok and mostly all the sampans sell food. There are other stalls located next to the market as well. Plenty of local things to see and do try some of the local delicacies. There are more stalls across the bridge selling local stuff including bugs and worms!!

    Although it was raining the day we went, the covered food stalls, clothing and souvenir stores were in business. As for the boats docked along the river, they were covered with tarp. Vendors continued to sell their wares in the rain. It's quite mind boggling to navigate through the market but once you get the hang of it, its easy. Everything is in on a grid. Delicious food, friendly locals, great bargains.

I had a quick getaway with my girlfriend to the floating market in Hatyai. We loved the food! I tried various local dishes here, like chicken noodles, mango with glutinous rice, mango salad, and many more. The sellers on the boat were very friendly and easy to communicate with. If you haven't been to this market, you should go—it will never disappoint.

Kind of a touristy market, and very popular, but still an enjoyable experience. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings only. Plenty of food of all types. The "floating" food sellers were mobbed, so unless you really feel the need to order from them, you can get similar food on land. They put on traditional dance exhibitions, which also get mobbed. There are the usual 5b public toilets, and Muslim prayer rooms as well. Easy ride from the center of Hat Yai. If you come from the south, you can't cross the river with your motorbike. Turn left into the temple about 100 meters south of the bridge. The attendant will collect 10b from you. Then you can walk across the bridge and enjoy!

An interesting thing to do in Hat Yai on a Friday. There are many food and t-shirt stalls, but not much for real shopping. We got some nice photos here

We stopped by this place for about 2 hours. Checking out the food and the items for sale. These people work so hard to deliver a great product. Check this place out when visiting Hat Yai
