Hat Yai Junction Railway Station is a major junction station in Southern Thailand and a terminus for many trains across Thailand on the Southern Line. At the start or end of a long train journey, some passengers may find the need to freshen up. Thankfully, as all good major Thailand railway stations have, there is a shower room in Hat Yai Junction Railway Station for the public to use, and reasonably priced at only 10 Baht too.
