Songkhla / Hat Yai Part 4 : My Unfulfilled Wish

There's this one thing I really wanted to do in Songkhla, but didn't managed to do it. And it is now become my unfulfilled wish which will insyaallah be fulfilled in the future when I get to visit Songkhla again (or any other places with floating market like Bangkok).

On the way back from Samila beach, we stopped by for a while at Khlong Hae to see the floating market. It was still too early, it was just after 1 pm, so it was still empty.

I was told that the floating will be opened around 3 or 4 pm, so we've decided to come again in the evening by tuk tuk. We went back to the hotel and slept after our Zuhr jama' prayer, and woke up quite late after maghrib. By the time we went out of the hotel it was already late, so instead of experiencing the floating market, we shop around Hat Yai instead. What a waste!


  1. The floating market nowadays had become too touristy and had lost it charm.

  2. You mean in Hat Yai or in other places?
