Wong Wian Namphu; The Best Neighbourhood for Halal Street Food in Hat Yai
Hat Yai is a beautiful city in Southern Thailand with a large number of Muslim population. So, finding halal food and prayer room in Hat Yai should not be a problem. There are plenty of halal food and Mosque or prayer room around the city.
For me, Hat Yai is a great place to visit in Thailand. The authentic Thai halal street food is one of the reasons. Well, i believe that many travelers are already familiar with Lee Garden, Asean Market, Greenway Shopping and Klonghae Floating Market areas for the halal street food. But, there is also a place that not many travelers actually know. This is a place that is very popular with locals.
This is Namphu Roundabout area or in Thai known as Wong Wian Namphu area an area with a lot of halal stalls, my favorite place where everyone can eat like and together with locals.
It has a good selections of the authentic Thai halal street foods, drinks, snacks and also fruits. It is the right place for you to sit down and enjoy your dinner.
This area is quite near to President Hotel Hat Yai. And just a short walking distance from this area is Majjamoh Mosque, a small Mosque located at the end of a soi.

How to get there
To get to Wong Wian Namphu area you can take motorcycle taxi, tuk tuk or songthaew. But i prefer Songthaew, because it’s cheaper. Tell the driver to drop you at President Hotel. And the street food market is just right next to this hotel at Nipatsongkrew 1 Road.
