Tourists from Malaysia have booked over 12,000 rooms for the Hari Raya in Hat Yai.

Service providers in Hat Yai are ready to welcome tourists for the Hari Raya Fair this weekend, according to President of the Hat Yai Hotel Association, Mr Somchart Pimthanapoonporn. The accommodation was fully booked, with at least 60 million THB to be circulated during the festival. The Hari Raya Festival is being held from 27 to 29 November to celebrate the end of the fasting and abstinence by Muslims.

The number of tourists has increased compared to last year due to the city’s credibility in security measure as well as the diminishing unrest in the south. Mr Somchart added that Malaysian tourists prefer Hat Yai for the city’s entertainment, dining and shopping attractions. (NNT)
