This is my first time visiting Hatyai. I had made some research and found that it took 33 minutes to walk from Hatyai city central to this temple. As the temple is located at the other side of the Hatyai railway track, you have to cross a bridge that leads you to the other side of the railway track. You... More

Just visited Wat Hatyai Nai again. Fantastic sleeping Buddha. The friendly monks gave me their blessings and had the opportunity to donate and make merits. For those who just want to go to any temple and selfishly take selfies, etc while "avoiding" giving any donations like what the 2 previous reviews were... then please dont waste your time going to...

So far I had visited so many temples, this temple had the least Buddha statue that I saw. But at least it is worth to visit, because of the statue is the 3rd largest Sleeping Buddha statue in the world. Remember try to avoid any donation.

Excellent place to visit, great for photo opportunities, just make sure you are firm with Tuk tuk drivers as they try to double fare when you get there.

I have been many times to Thailand and i worked in Bangkok and have se hundreds of temples. This one did not have very good reviews. Yet, we decided to go and check ourselves. We walked from our...

A place for you to pray and taking some picture. If you want to do contribution to the monk and temple, you can do it there but remember to bring extra cash.

Looks so depressing. Nothing more that Reclining Buddha in a dilapidated temple. Can give it a miss, even if you have nothing to do,
