  • Central Department Store

    Hat Yai Shopping

    Generally, Central Department Store sells higher end merchandise than its counterparts in Hatyai. However, I like to hangout at B2S on the 4th floor. There is an English books section that you may find something to read on your journey. They also have reasonable selection of travel guide and picture books. High end merchandise and books

  • Counterfeit & Fake Goods

    Hat Yai Shopping

    Roadside t-shirt stalls... 2 years back when i first bought t-shirts on the streets on Hat Yai, i was pretty sceptical as i never trusted any goods not purchased from proper departmental stores but i did anyway. 2 years now, the first thing i think of about Hat Yai is shopping on the streets.

    Hat Yai Shopping

    Robinson is a very reputable department store in Thailand. The prices here for a lot of things are not actually much different from the prices asked for by street vendors. The quality will be a lot better though.

    There are tailors everywhere in Karon beach. We realised when we went to Bangkok later ...the prices were pretty good in Karon Beach .The best thing to do is get fitted at the beginning of your stay as it is best to allow as much time as possible. We both had tops and pants made . We mailed it back and it was here before we were. You can barter!!...

  • Prices are not set in stone!!!

    You can negotiate the price of everything when dealing with the local street shops. Nothing is set in stone so look around and get and ask questions. Things are very cheap in Thailand so most people don't bother and pay the first price given. Also, shops around the beaches are a lot more expensive than if you were to go further inland in the city...
