Hat Yai Golden Crown Hotel, Hat Yai

Hat Yai Golden Crown Hotel, Hat Yai

Memories come back of making visa runs and trips and they always included a nights lay over in Hat Yai.

Nowadays the visa runs are done within a day from Samui, leaving at silly o'clock in the morning and arriving late in the evening back on the island. Not my style at all. I preferred to take the local bus to Hat Yai, from there take a mini bus to the border and than back to Hat Yai or Song Kla with a taxi. Piece of cake and you had a night rest in Hat Yai. This was in the days when there were no shopping malls on Koh Samui! Hat Yai was a nice break.

Had Yai is also known as one of the few cities besides Phuket where the Vegetarian festival is celebrated. A very interesting experience indeed.

My visa run days were way before I started my blogs so unfortunately not too many posts about those trips but nonetheless, let's get back the matter at hand and that's a hotel in Had Yai.

The Had Yai Golden Crown is a typical hotel for the city, cheap, conveniently located near the city and it's shopping. Nothing more, nothing less. For under a 1.000,-THB you get a room, what else do you need just for the night?

Enjoy Had Yai and I still dream of a Chinese restaurant near the rail way station, it was that good!
