the trip to hatyai marked the second foreign country i’ve visited so far… both of them being our northern and southern neighbours… it was a few hours bus ride and quite a nice weekend getaway… i must say that there wasn’t anything exceptional as the environment was more or less like any regular local town… probably the enormous temples, abundance of massage parlours and the colourful nightlife set it apart from what we have back here…

we went sightseeing around various temples such as the wat hat yai nai… the golden brahman shrine on the hilltop of hat yai municipal park… as well as the kuan yin goddess temple on the southern foothill… one of the shots below feels like the stairway to heaven…

the girls loved shopping and we spent hours in lee garden, odean and central… which were the biggest malls within the heart of the town… we continued with more shopping the next day by walking along the day markets by the roadside selling food raw and cooked alike… there was this rather huge and stuffy market along montri road which sold loads of handbags and accessories… and this place was very much alike to the complex beside the main market in kota kinabalu which sold souvenirs…

the highlight of the trip was probably the rejuvenating full body massage which i had been looking forward to… all in all… it was an eye-opening experience in a foreign land…
