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.

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,

This is about a half hours walk from central Hatyai over the other side of the railway bridge, past the big police station and immigration office, cross the first major junction which has a car showroom on the right hand opposite corner and walk until you come to a river. The temple is on the right on the river bank... More

The place is under some sort of maintenance thus a little bit messy. Still can visit but please note that there will be people there to ask for donation and to buy offerings for praying which is fine except that is like pressurise hard selling.
