Mr Krissada said the Bt164 million was given to the families of three persons who were killed in the bombing, two disabled and 358 others who were wounded or injured.
The owners of 173 vehicles and 60 motorcycles also received indemnification as well as the 202 shopkeepers, he said.
Three victims, including a Malaysian tourist, were killed and several hundred shoppers were injured, mainly from smoke inhalation at the Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel car bombing on March 31 last year.
A suspect connected to the deadly car bombing was arrested on Feb 5 after a nearly one year search
Mr Krissada said that until now the security is still tighter at the Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel as well as other Hat Yai commercial and tourism areas.
More than 1,500 local and provincial administrative staff, police and civil network members have joined together monitor the entire district to prevent any possible attacks.
The cooperation convinced tourists and local residents of the effectiveness of the safety measures, said the governor.
