Lucky for me, I got here on a good day. The sky was clear and that made the view from here gorgeous. The golden Buddha can be seen from the road and in the sun, it's absolutely lovely! Huge! Then you can take a short cable car ride over to the next hill with a four face Buddha. But I got my driver to drive me to the hill and and walked up instead. Oh yes, tuk tuks don't go up the golden Buddha hill, so unless you're prepared to walk up stairs to the hill, get a driver at the city. My guy took me to 4 monasteries (abt 4 hours) for 400bht.

I would highly recommend this place without a doubt!

It's a about a 15 minute drive out of downtown Hat Yai, sans traffic snarl. There's a cable car ride...statue of Buddha and the view of Hat Yai town is awesome.

On the outskirt of Hat Yai main town center, there is this place where all should go. Best mode of transport is still TukTuk, just tell them you want to go "Kuan Yim Hill temple" and they will take you there, the transport package should include taking you to several location within the hill which is quite a number of temples to visit and each temple has different Buddha to worship, such as Kuan Yim and Guan Gong.

Once you reach the top of the hill, you will be able to catch a good view of the Hat Yai city and its surrounding, a good spot to snap some photo with excellent view. By the way, they do "rent" Buddha statute too, you may want to have one too. (Thai do not regard it as sell because Buddha statute cannot be sold for money, it is regarded as rent to you)

A great way to get out of the city and enjoy some wildlife, the view from the top is great and well worth the trek to the top!.

Space observatory, temple at the peak, short cable car ride, large park. Not too far from city center but will need transport to get there.
