Thetraveljunkie.org – When in Hat Yai, we went to Hat Yai Floating Market or Khlong Hae Floating Market, an incredible culture space where you can enjoy local culture while having the place to yourself. To get there you can take local transport from Hat Yai City. At the floating market vendors pack their wares onto small boats and jostle with each other for the attention of buyers alongside canals. There is large number of vendors selling a big variety of local Thai food and snacks. A real festival of colours, smells and flavours! The food is mostly halal and suitable for muslims. The market also has a campaign for the environment as the sellers use bamboo tubes, coconut shells, and clay pots instead of using plastic bags or foam boxes.
Khlong Hae Floating Market is open from Fridays to Sundays, 3-9pm.
And now the question is, where shall we go next?
Happy Sustainable Travels!
