"Sungai Kolok - Border Town" Top 5 Page for this destination Malaysia Favorite Tip by SLLiew

Malaysia General: 326 reviews and 270 photos


Favorite thing: There are many river crossings to Thailand from Kelantan by the locals.

For tourists, this is the major border town to Golok, Thailand. Many Malaysians walk across the bridge for day trip shopping or night of clubbing, massage and karaoke. The number of tourists has dropped because of recent isolated bombing due to Thai insurgency in southern Thailand. Yet it does not deter intrepid tourists and locals.

Golok is also a major railway terminal to the rest of Thailand by rail.

Check the latest travel advisory, local news and exercise caution if you do go.
