Last month on 22/4/2011, we went to Hat Yai on a group of 10 disabled friends tour over a holiday weekend for 2 days Nights in Hatyai.
We felt that, it is an extremely popular tourist spot for Malaysians on holiday.
Departure at 6.30am from Rawang. We reach Changlun border town about 12.30pm, take our lunch at one of the rest area/food court area which cater for cars, buses, lorries traveling to Thailand. The food court comes with money changer, sundry shops as well as Thailand Insurance agent where it is compulsary when your drive to Thailand.
We get all the documents done (Insurance/entry pass).
The road towards Hadyai town is dual carriage highway and tol free. Since it is neighbouring to Malaysia border, the buildings and the environment are similar to what we see in Malaysia, except that all the advertisement signboards are in Thailand language.
To be honest, I just admire the way how Thailand government encourage the creativity of their people, look at theirs buses, it painted with all kind of pictures. Can you imagine it happen in Malaysia ? Not just white and green tour bus, it just boring here.
We spend almost the whole day at the Hatyai Town.
We reach home about 6.30pm.
It is a very enjoyable trip as we got to see a lot of different places.
