The Hat Yai Green-White Songthaew is another common sight around the ring road around downtown Hat Yai, but does not appear on English travel guides online. As I was just travelling a short distance on Phet Kasem Road, I hopped on to a waiting Green-White Songthaew to get to Big C Extra Hatyai 2 just ahead.
On board Hat Yai Green-White Songthaew Route 8300.
Departing from Kim Yong Market.
Making a brief stop at Hat Yai Clock Tower where many other Songthaews are waiting.
Departing from Clock Tower.
Continuing on Phet Kasem Road.
Stuck at the traffic light with bunching Green-White Songthaews.
Arriving at Big C Extra Hatyai 2.
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 Green-White Songthaew Route 8300 is an out-of-town Songthaew route, serving the Hat Yai – Bang Klam route, similar to Hat Yai Blue Songthaew Route 8438, but it takes the main Thailand Route 4 instead for most of the journey, only turning in to Route 4208 to head directly to Bang Klam.
After paying 10 Baht to the driver, I headed in to Big C Extra Hatyai 2 to shop for a while.
