    Local Markets: Kim Yong Market

    Kim Yong Market is famous for the locals to get imported snacks from Malaysia and Singapore. You will find many muslim vendors sellling merchandise on the street. The market itself has many small stalls nestled on narrow alleyways. It is covered and can get a bit clasterphobic sometimes.

    What to buy: According to my Thai friends, one of the most popular souvenir from Hatyai is Pringles potato chips! Apparently, they are imported from Malaysia and are cheaper than in the rest of Thailand. Other things to be considered at this market are local fruits, all sorts of nuts, and anything Thai!! Batik is also popular at this market.

    Local Markets: Santisok Market & Yong Dee Market

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a popular place for the locals to shop. Don't expect it to be big like those in Bangkok. It is enough to serve the local shoppers and Malaysian and Singaporean tourists.

    What to buy: Pretty much anything from clothes (Polo, Abercrombie & Fitch, etc), sport shoes, electrical appliances, DVD/ CDs (of course pirated version with nice packaging), etc. However, don't expect to find many handicrafts or local souvenirs here.

    The market is busy with those hawkers selling food and drink facing outside. They are all in good business during peak tourism season.

    What to buy: Outside the market : sundry goods, foodstuff, ready cooked street food and drink.
    Inside the market : clothes, leather products, bags, shoes, dried and packed food ...

    What to pay: Some are fixed price, most of the thing you need to bargain

    There are hundred of vendors group together to form a market doing their business selling almost the same things. If you wish to buy something, prepare your Thai Baht and your time, do some window shopping and some bargaining. Give a price you plan to pay or reply with a smile.

    What to buy: Ready packed Thailand snacks, shirt and clothes, leather products such as belt, wallet, shoes, slippers, handbags, hats, kitchen ware ....

    Located somewhere in the town centre: Markets

    by juliewong Updated Sep 9, 2006

    There is a market located smacked right in the town centre. Cheap & fake branded apparels and shoes like Nike, Reeboks & Guess are sold by the many vendors operating in the market square. This place is known for mass production of fake brand name goods.

    Don't bother buying any of these if you're one who place importance in quality and durability as most of the fake goods are long-lasting and fade easily. However, the upside of it is that they're cheap!

    What to buy: Foodstuffs, lingerie.
