“Hatyai Lantern Festival”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Much has been reviewed regarding the Templeof the and the views of Hatyai city from the top of yhe mountaik at the Municipal Park.
I am not going to touch on all these but on one festival most tourists miss. It is the Hatyai Internatinal Lantern festival held at the park every year from November till end of the year.
It is a festival where lanterns were brought in from Bangkok and even China and singapore.
The lanterns are in all shapes and sizes ( animals, robots, cartoon characters etc ) and are of very high standard and fine workmanship. A must for all photo bugs.

It is an event not to be missed. Go there of course in the evening for the best lightings.

“Good Public Park”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This is a good place to spend a couple of hours away in Hatyai. It is only about 20 min drive from central shopping area.

“Park without attractions”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

When we were there, saw some poorly maintained status. We did not bother to alight and we continue our journey to the nearby temple.

“Do check it out, it's gorgeous!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

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!
