City of Paris

The fourth-largest Malay city and one of the country's premier shopping and commercial districts, Hat Yai has proved extremely popular among local tourists. Busy street food stalls sit adjacent to big Western-style shopping malls, creating a heady mix of commercialism and authenticity. If you're after an evening of dancing, things to do in Hat Yai include a raft of nighttime bars, pubs, and clubs popular with locals and expats alike. Though considered safer than other regions of Southern Thailand, as a commercial center Hat Yai has been the target of terrorist activity by separitist groups, including a hotel bombing that killed several people.
