Hadyai Trip-Day 2

It was 8.00 am when we had a morning call. We had a scrumptious buffet breakfast at the Grand View Restaurant in the hotel. After that, we left for the magnificent White Steel Pagoda in a crammed up van.The winding road worsened the condition. There were many large, golden Buddha statues there. The path was made of gold, so we had to visit the deitied barefooted. The platform was very high!

The whole gang!

Later at, we went to a hill with many Elephant God statues, which was above the Hadyai Municipal Park. There were many elephant figurines and their way of worshipping the God was by igniting fireworks. Pretty Deafening...

After that, we went downhill to visit the Kuan Yin Temple. Half an hour later, we paid a visit to the Mahapanya Vidayalai. There were many Buddhist statues there, once again. A tall, magnificent pagoda was found there as well. A serene, peaceful ambience surrounded the Temple environment.

In the afternoon, we went for a lunch at Kan Eng Restaurant which serves spicy Thai food. The food was extremely spicy and some of them were exotic. I love only the curry crab, fried fishcake and omelette.

After that, we went back to the hotel for a rest. At around 3.00 pm, we visited the Klonghae Floating Market. It was indeed unique. There were many stalls set on "sampan" and that ared was particularly crowded. Drinks were sold in clay bowls and bamboo sticks instead of disposable cups. I like that! My mom bought a bowl of dessert after being crowded for long. The dessert was yummy!

Later, we went again to the same restaurant for dinner. This time, the food was better. We went shopping at the Odean Supermarket nearby. My family then went to a stall nearby which sold desserts and had supper before we returned to the hotel.It was heavenly!

Okay, I shall tell you about the last day in my next post...
