Hat Yai (หาดใหญ่) which also known as Haad Yai or Had Yai is a place located at the southern Thailand near the border of Malaysia. As the place is near to Malaysia, it only took me about 3 hours by bus (that exclude the horrible 1 hour waiting for immigration clearance) to reach this small town. The first destination is to Songkhla which well known for its Mermaid Status located at Samila Beach (แหลมสมิหลา). But, our guide pronounce this as “Si Mi Lan Beach” which crack out a loud laughter among all Penangites in the bus. That does not sound like a “good” word in Hockien 🙂
Famous grilled chicken. Trust me, this one taste better than it look.
