Hatyai - Day 1 (Part I)


Hey readers,
i'm back again with mah new post
And yea,
it's about my company trip to Hatyai
Took this as a chance to travel with my BF =)
Our very first trip


Are you guys ready for this?
Here we go!
My 4days and 2 nights trip!
I was soooo excited
though we traveled there by bus
not by air plane
It's gonna be a long long journey...

Don't doubt it
I brought my lil bunny along! =P

28/7/2011
=8.30pm=

All of us gathered at our company
Waiting for the bus to arrive

Wait..wait..and wait...
After a long wait for an hour plus
Finally the bus arrived!
Hmm...
Most of us rushed into the bus
Can u guy guess why??

To get a ideal seat in the bus!

People doesn't like to sit in the front/back row of the bus
Cos it'll get a lil bumpy when the bus is moving
People with motion sickness sure gonna suffer from that
Aikss

Lucikly,
I was able to get me and BF a middle seat!
Yeahh~~

3 of us ^^

Me with my bunny
Couldn't sleep without HER XD

Our journey starts...
Time flies
It's 12am
Bus driver stopped by the R&R
and dropped us for supper
Me and BF went for a walk
bought us a drink and sat in the playground


I couldn't sleep in the bus
Felt tired and sleepy all the way =.=
Our bus driver drove very fast
We reached the custom around 5 in early morning
guess what
We're the first 2 buses to arrive there!
LOL

Slept in the bus for an hour
and went through the Danok Custom
Got our passport stamped
and finally!
We're on the land of Thailand!
Hahaha

Before headed to Hatyai
We visited Khao Nam Khang
the Historical Tunnel
the tunnel located deep in the jungles of Khao Nam Khang National Park

Before we headed to the tunnel
We were briefed by the former communist soldier
He is 81years old and was a Malaysian
He told us the history of the man-made tunnel
The largest and longest man-made tunnel in Thailand
Some collection of the former communist soldier
Things they used during that time
You may saw many antiques
Radios..Oil lamps..Bottles..

Books which they used it to kill the time when in the tunnel

Metal boxes
For food storage
According to the former soldier
They hunt for prey and kept it inside the metal drum
Prey can last for 60years and will not decay
How brilliant were they huh

The Forest

Near the entrance there is a memorial
for the fallen soldiers
It's on the left hand side of the picture
I didn't capture any pic of it
Just to show some respect to them
*wink*
Me and my lovely BF

We had to climb up the hill
before get to the tunnel
and yea,
it's 108 staircase which you have to climb!
Oh no~

Look at this
How steep is it
>.<
I breathe heavily while climbing up the stairs
As you know
i don't exercise
LOL

We made it!
We made to the top
Hahaha
On top of the hill
They had a big bomb crater

Kitchen
A Wedding Chapel
Hey..it's 5 stars okay
LOL
Me and BF get married there =P



They even had a basketball court there
all these facilities are hide in the deep forest where no one knows
Walking there around
You could imagine how they live there for years
How the communist soldiers fought and died in the same land
You should visit to this historical place
where there are not much changes over the years

Soon,
We had reach the tunnel!


The tunnel which are 30Ft deep from surface
Built by 200 Chinese Communist Soldiers
It took 20years for them to complete the tunnel
A tunnel with 16 entrances

Man and women worked together to get it done

The place where they put the oil lamp
Oil lamp is their only lighting source
No electricity in the tunnel during that time

The tunnel has several rooms such as
conference room, sick bay, radio transmission room
Kitchen..

and of course
a firing range
Cool right?
Hmm...

Well
the last part of the tunnel ended with a very steep staircase way down
Felt scary while walking down the stairs
afraid of take a wrong step
and roll down from stairs
LOL
After visited the communist tunnel,
We headed to local products and souvenir shops
People started to spend alot there
While me and my dear
Just spent 200baht for the bird nest..
For your info,
Price for a bowl of bird nest in Hatyai is cheaper compare to this.
You can get a bowl of bird nest in Hatyai for only 100baht!
Lunch time!
We went to Hatyai town for lunch
Bf and I can't wait for it as this is our first meal in Thai style!
Because of giving too much of expectation,
I felt disappointed after reach the restaurant.
Simple dishes with no difference with Malay restaurant in Malaysia

They even taste nicer in Malaysia
>.<
Here comes the Tom Yam of Thai!
I'm gonna rate it
2 out of 5!!
Think they put too much of water
as you can see in the pic as shown below
Seafood tomyam
First taste is only spicy
What you can feel after taking the tomyam is burning lips!
Oh ya
something to share
The electricity wires in Hatyai is sooo terrible
Unlike Malaysia's one
Before we started to shop around Hatyai town,
we checked in to our Hotel
BP Grand Hotel
An old hotel with 4 stars if not mistaken
Look how excited is my BF
Hahaha

I've got the room key! ^^

The room..
Everything is in very old condition
Hmm..
not as comfortable as i imagine


Thailand is famous of their Tuk-Tuk
It only cost 20baht per person
and they will bring you to everywhere you wish to go
Shopping time!
Took a Tuk-tuk with colleagues to the big market
From tuk-tuk
you can notice the busy traffic of Hatyai
Us in the Tuk-tuk

The big market


Cheap!
Dear saw a cute scooter
and he liked it so much until he insist to take a pic with it =P

Colleagues bought alot of things there
Papaya soap, snacks, asam
and also the Zebrassss
Wow!
Conclusion for this part
Never spend too much due to nothing to buy
LOL
I'm not until aunty level yet
My target is to spend on food and clothes

Stay tune for my next post
The Floating Market~!
