    Hi all

    Need some advice. I posted before on hatyai and looked at the old threads before posting this.

    I haven't been to hatyai before and keen to go to hatyai. This time, I going alone (may ask a few friends to go along) and purpose is to clear my mind, pray to LPs, if possible look for good arjan for fortune telling to seek life and career directions.

    Anyone can let me know how I should plan out the trip? Transport?
    What are the temples i should go and bai bai? Any famous and good arjan whom i should pay a visit?

    cheers! :smilie:

    thanks Bro DarkCraft. The list is long and I am going for 3D/2N or 2 full days. I dun plan to rush here and there if there are many temples to visit.

    Any driver cum translator, I can engage his service? Usually, how much? Any recommendations?

    cheers

    If you planning to the Pattani and Songkla province, you are able to cover at least 6 temple ard there. Leave around 7am from hotel you will be able to come back around 3 pm Liao. Journey is around 1 hr drive from Hatyai to the above mention province. Try to be back early cos it's a muslim province. Hope it helps. I think there an travel agency near Lee Garden Hotel nearby. Prices not sure..

    Yup there's a temple; like what you mention PP & Kwan Yinn too... But not sure cos didn't go there...

    Price for a day trip ard 2500-4000 include fuel depending on the driver.. You will come across at least 3-4 military check points. If you are lucky, they will pass you thru if not U-TURN!!! Depending on the level of threat in Pattani Area.

    Hi Bro,

    Bro DarkCraft had given you all the nice temple. Maybe would you like to try out the following route which I went 2 weeks ago. My family spend 4 days there and one of the day went to the below place.

    Start the journey at 7am.

    1) Wat Saphan Makien-LP Keaw
    2) Wat NataWee -young and very friendly LP, very accurate in fortune telling. He can speak Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese, English and Mandarin. Should say his fortune telling thumb up. All on tamboon basis. Have to queue quite long at Wat NataWee.
    3) Wat Ko Yo
    4) Wat Kogsoong - Phra Klu Samuhu Samsak- Die Die also must wait for flower bath, chanting about 40mins. Must Try.
    5) Phra Phrom & GuanYin Temple

    You should reach hotel by 5pm or 6pm. Total cost is 3000-3800 baht.

    As travel to Pattani & Patthalung, it depend where you go. You must go out at 7am and back before 5pm. One of our driver is Muslim, our conservation is not a problem.

    Cheers!
