"Peaceful Songkhla" Top 5 Page for this destination Songkhla by trisanna

Songkhla Travel Guide: 59 reviews and 123 photos

Songklha is a peaceful city, about a 45 minute drive from Hat Yai, a little longer by bus. This city doesn't have much nightlife or attractions, but it's full of wonderful people. The children are quite friendly and eager to test their english.

There are some lovely wats in the city. You can take a funicular to one wat that is on top of a large hill. If you are traveling in south Thailand, Songkhla is a nice stop along your itinerary. There are few tourists here, but you will occasionally see some expats. There are a few oil companies, which drill off the coast of Thailand.

    Looks like a relaxing, sleepy place.
