Hat Yai, Thailand


27 (Mon) - 29 (Wed) Dec 2010
Lodging: B.P. Grand Suite Hotel



Day 1

We departed from Greenlane McD on a van in the morning, with two other ladies whom we don't know, and reached the entrance of the B.P. Grand Suite Hotel at 9am (Thailand's timezone).

We're so unfortunate that the total number of us (5) were noticed and we're asked by no other choice to get another extra room, meaning that we're gonna pay more. The lobby gave me my first impression of the hotel, under construction, dusty, poor English pronunctiation and grammar by the receptionist, my goodness, why this kind of place? However, after entering our rooms, tadang!!


Aiyaya, it was totally out of my expectation. Hehe...


Samurai Pork Burger from McDonald’s at Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel
(I don't mind if Malaysia’s not having one as it doesn't taste any better or more special)


One of their famous markets - Kim Yong Market


I just don't understand why sometimes things have to be so spicy to the extent that I couldn’t even taste the original taste of them.


It’s around 200฿, I wonder if you can find any cheaper one.


Day 2


My first time taking Tuk-tuk, which fare is super cheap.


The big market of Hat Yai, a paradise for my cheapskate female friends, while for a guy like me, "Can I just stay inside the hotel room?"


Being dolls, not so bad at all, at least there's free trip without having them owning a passport.

Although we didn't manage to visit those touristy places of Hat Yai, at least we've been to the Hat Yai Lantern Festival which is quite seasonal, featuring 11 amazing (quite awesome) lanterns.





Day 3

The last cheap stuff we had on our last day - Hachiban Ramen (a Japanese restaurant) at Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel.

Due to the traffic congestion near the customs, we're only able to reach Prangin Mall, Penang late at around 10pm.

The internal concert was a pretty great show.
I was also quite relieved that the outcome of the live performance was better than expected.
