Songkhla is a big provincial town/city near Hat Yai but doesn't have a lot to draw tourists and is not strategically located as a staging post, as is Hat Yai. It seems to have a lot of big schools and consequently there are thousands of students milling around on their way to and from school. There also appear to be quite a few government buildings.
I also believe there is something of an oil industry in the area, having spotted a number of drilling rigs and a Halliburton office. This probably means there are expats around involved in the oil business.
There is a beach and although it is nice to see some sand and hear the sea it is nowhere near as nice as the beaches on Thailand's islands. A day trip might be of some interest if you are spending time in Hat Yai.
- Pros:There is a beach - of sorts
- Cons:Very little for tourists and dull at night
- In a nutshell:OK for a quick look but not worth spending much time in
I'm more of a cat person than a dog person but I felt sorry for this little fellow. There are stray dogs everywhere in... more travel advice
