Heading out of Hat Yai City Municipality Park, I went to the main road to flag down the first Songthaew that I saw, which was a dark green one. After asking the driver if he went to Kim Yong Market, I hopped on board the Hat Yai Dark Green Songthaew Route 1871 for the efficient ride back to downtown Hat Yai with zero waiting time.

This Songthaew (literally means “2 rows”) had 3 rows of seats instead of the usual 2. I wonder if it’s called Samthaew now.

The driver stopped me at Kim Yong Market and went off in a small lane, going off service.

After alighting from the rear, head to the front window to pay the Songthaew driver. The Songthaew fare within Hat Yai city costs 10 Baht.

Hat Yai Dark Green Songthaew Route 1871 is a heavily-used out-of-town Songthaew route, serving the popular Hat Yai – Songkhla route. As such, frequency is rather high for the Hat Yai Dark Green Songthaew Route 1871.

From here, a flag-down tuk-tuk offered me the actual local intra-town fare of 20 Baht without me bargaining, so I got on the tuk-tuk for an efficient ride back to Red Planet Hat Yai to freshen up after the long day out.
