Floating Market - Review
Quite apt to its name the market actually floats atop small boats on water. The Floating Market is located in Khlong Hae a bit away from hat yai city. It’s a nice place to rub shoulders with the locals and test your bargaining skills. A place where you get all sorts of fruits vegetables, flowers and even some of the weirdest non vegetarian foods like earthworms. You can try them if you have the stomach for it. Instead of plastic bags and cups the vendors use organic products like bamboo boxes and clay pots which adds a nice flavour to the place. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hat Yai itinerary 3 days.

Floating Market, Hat Yai Reviews
Interesting floating market. Different from others. Mainly selling food on the boat. There are more stores on the land. Weather can be quite hot in the afternoon.
This place has many various of foods, snacks and drinks. And the food here was amazing, delicious. You can try all the food here because all the seller is a Muslims and halal food. There also has shop that you can buy souvenirs for your family, and friends. I tried the fish mow soup ( i dont really remember the name) for the first time. And its so delicious for me. And it costs 40 Baht per bowl. The food here are so cheap. For non-Muslims, it also has a mini pub.
Well known touristic Exotic and bustling shopping and food centre that caters mainly to visiting chater vans and tourist buses. The locality is away from the city but once there you will be amazed at their parade of things to buy and taste. It is the predecessor to many New up and coming floating market in southern Thailand as their attraction is undiminished even after decades of offering the same concept of tourist product and handicrafts & wares . Conclusion: Still worth the trip.
Not too much of a big deal. Good for spending time. Typical local food and very touristy. Just a few floating shops, to be honest. Not sure if really worth the hype. Be careful with parking. If you park inside, they'll only allow your vehicle to move out after 7pm.
Floating market is an unique place in Hat Yai where the local sells their wares and local food on little boats park beside a concrete pier. Apart from it, there are many small stalls selling all kinds of stuff from trinkets to local medicine. Lots of delicious local food.
