A short get-away trip to the land of Hatyai

We planned to have one day trip to have sightseeing in Hatyai on 3.2.2015. Dad and mom actually wanted to revisit Hatyai. This city is known as heaven for travelers who cross by land between Malaysia and Thailand. We woke up rather earlier on that day to wait for the mini bus to fetch us.
We took the most earlier van at 5.30 am from Penang to Hatyai. It costs us RM300 by mini bus 
along with another group of tourists . After five hours of mini bus ride, we finally reached Hatyai.
Our first stop was Lee Garden Plaza. We strolled along the road outside Lee Gardens Mall. Lee Garden Plaza is the central of the Hatyai City.Next stop, Kim Yong Market, with lots of stops along the way.
The development in Hatyai is a bit slower if compares to Malaysia. Look at their electrical wires. The electricity wires in Hatyai is so terrible and backdated .
Hatyai's famous public transport is TuTu car. The tutu car can fetch you to all around Hatyai with standard charge of 20bath per person. Tourism in Hat Yai consists mainly of the weekend trade from Malaysia and Singapore.
One thing that shouldn't be missed in Hatyai, of course is their MCD samurai pork burger. McDonald’s Thailand offers Samurai Pork Burger which can’t be found at McDonald’s Malaysia due to its halal nature.
We walked to the McDonald's to fill our hungry tummies. Mr Ronald Macdonald who greet us at the entrance of Lee Garden Plaza.
We had to go through the security check before entering. It has been heavily guarded ever since the bombing incident. We had our lunch here.
Apple pie is the most common pie in McDonald’s Malaysia. At Hatyai , we can have corn pie, pineapple pie and spinach pie.
Mcdonald's Samurai Pork burger. Have you tasted one? After devoured the first bite, both of you made a thumbs-up sign.
Crispy pie crust with tasty yam chunks.
We came across Mister Donut which is located at Lee Garden.
Mister Donut is a fast food franchise founded in the United States in 1956, now headquartered in Japan, where it has more than 1,300 stores. It is offerings doughnuts, coffee, muffins and pastries.
Mister doughnut is not to be missed. Very happy to find a Mister Donut in Hatyai.
Animal themed doughnut. Do you like cow-themed doughnut?
What is better than yummy snacks? Yummy snacks that look like cute animals, of course! Which of the animal-themed treats is your favorite?
We were hungry again. We planned to find KFC here. You can try different kinds of snack which are not available in Malaysia KFC.
You only can get the egg tart at Thailand KFC Cafe. 
You can also get unique KFC items like shrimp donut, which is a donut shaped piece of shrimp that is breaded and fried.
Have you tried KFC spicy kerabu rice before? It is worth trying. It has a slight tinge of sourish taste mix with prawns and squid. A good appetizer.
After strolled around the city, we went home by mini bus at 4.30pm. It was our short get-away trip to the land of Hatyai. We are planning a trip to Thailand.
Girls, dad and mom want to explore Thailand to experience its beautiful. Thailand is a country which overshadowed by Buddhism and a culture. There is a joy to know that there are churches in Thailand. It is great hope that God's love can reach out to people here.
