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.
The shower room is located on the northern side of Platform 1. If you are facing the tracks with your back to the station building, this is on the right side. Follow the signs to the toilet.
There is a manned counter to pay for entry into the toilet and shower room, with some amenities for sale there too. If you are taking a shower, you are advised to bring your own soap and towel for convenience and to reduce wastage.
A regular toilet usage costs 3 Baht, and a shower costs 10 Baht.

There is a bidet spray in the toilet cubicles.
Paying for a shower allows you to use the toilet facilities as well.
Shower cubicles are the two last cubicles in the toilet.
There is a hook on the cubicle door.
There is also an additional hanging bar for your clothes.
The shower head is hung on the knob.
There was a bar of soap placed at the side, but I’m not sure if this is common practice or the last person simply left it behind.
There is another more prominent toilet and shower on the main station building on the southern end of Platform 1, but this costs about double the price as the one on the northern end. A regular toilet usage here costs 5 Baht, and a shower costs 20 Baht.
This more-expensive shower room is located by the underpass entrance at Platform 1. No pictures of it though, because I didn’t pay the double price to use it.
