phuketsub 639 Posted March 20 Share Posted March 20 I had a few hours to kill in downtown Hat Yai recently, so I ended up walking around both Kimyoung and Santisuk markets. While it was good to see them still open and relatively busy compared to many other parts of the city, it really did strike me just how anachronistic it felt. Most of the goods up for sale are the same crappy junk foods and other consumer products that they have offered for decades. There are even shops still selling CDs and DVDs, as if Netflix and torrent websites had never come into existence...It just made me wonder how the place actually works, with so many vendors selling the same stuff...it even made me wonder if it might be a front for something else. The last concern I had was about fire safety, as both markets are obviously at risk of a major catastrophe similar to what happened at Supercheap in Phuket. Just wondering what others might think about these places, since they are at the very heart of the city. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
