Tourists visiting southern Thailand’s city of Hat Yai who prefer shopping malls to night markets can now experience a little bit of both at one of Hat Yai’s more recent night market offerings: the Asean Night Bazaar!
This bazaar, which opened in 2014 or so, is a two story shopping mall-type night market. The first floor is a long row of nothing but clothing and merchandise shops. Many of these shops sell clothing and (largely) women’s merchandise. The second floor is essentially a giant food court with Thai, Malay, and international restaurants.
Since it first opened a few years ago, the Asean Night Bazaar has become a very popular shopping and tourist attraction in Hat Yai!
The Asean Night Bazaar is open everyday from 3-10:30 pm.
