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

  • A lot of cheap tasty food options which are awesome! They also sell a variety of clothes & souvenirs at reasonable price. Amenities on the other hand need to be improved. It's a non flowing river so it's kind of smelly, and not clean. Need to have more shaded seats as it can be scorching hot in the afternoon, a better deck for the buyers (I've seen a visitor felt on her face bcoz of the poorly maintain deck!, and a better restroom.

  • This place got so many shops. Cheap price. Clean places. Got stage to entertain tourists. Delicious foods & drinks. Sell various kind of things such as clothes, keychains and many more. Very recommended to those who wants to visit.

  • We took a Taxi to Khlong Hae. Food Hunter!!! Ready to dig-in. But make sure you empty you stomach first. You go crazy with the food. Super cheap super authentic super yummy. So packed with peeps by the weekend. I recommend you arrive around 5pm local time. Bring some sun screen and umbrella, tissue / wet tissue. Trust me! So many varieties. Heavenly taste.

  • It was hot and sunny if you go in the evening. They have limited tables and seats to eat since overflowing people would come on peak season. Foods is delicious and cheap! Most of the food is halal. Please be aware of what they're selling. If in doubt, just ask.

  • Tarikan pelancong yang berkunjung ke Hatyai. Pelbagai pilihan makanan yang murah dan sedap. Air dalam buluh, Kerabu Suun, Kerabu Kueh Teow, Sotong Panggang Fresh, Steamboat dan banyak lagi. Harga murah. Buka jam 3 petang, dinasihatkan datang pukul 245 petang supaya tidak bertembung dengan rombongan pelancong.
