Tourist Attractions

Khao Nam Khang National Park

Khao Nam Khang National Park

Khao Nam Khang National Park has lush forest cover. There are two waterfalls within this park: Ton Dat Fa and Ton Lat Fa. Tourists can take two routes to the park: from Amphoe Sadao for 26 kilometres or from Amphoe Na Thawi on the Na Thawi-Ban Prakop Road for 31 kilometres.


Songkhla Lake

Songkhla Lake

The biggest lake of the south is the Songkhla lake (1,040 sq.km.), the largest artificial lake is the Chiao Lan (Ratchaprapha dam) with 165 km² within the Khao Sok national park. Songkhla Lake extends from its estuarine entrance near the Son On Beach some 80 kms. north. The freshwater lake reaches some 20 kms. at its widest point and is Thailand's largest inland body of water. The lake contains several islands, and supports two notable bird sanctuaries located in Phatthalung and Songkhla.


Namtok Boriphat Forestry Park

Namtok Boriphat Forestry Park

Namtok Boriphat Forestry Park is about 52 kilometres from Amphoe Mueang Songkhla, on Highway 406, at the 35-36 kilometre stone. Turn onto a dirt road for about one kilometre. It is a small all-season.


The Songkhla National Museum

The Songkhla National Museum

The building housing the Songkhla National Museum was originally built in 1878 by the province's deputy governor, Phraya Sundranuraksa (also known as Net Na Songkhla), who was a descendant of the modern city's founder. It was used as the governor's palace for a short time and later served as the city hall, but then fell into neglect for much of the mid-twentieth century. It was registered as a national monument in 1973, and was bought back to life and opened as a national museum in 1982. The exhibits are a wide ranging collection of artefacts from the province's past. They include a history of the Na Songkhla family which founded the city and supplied eight of its governors; furniture; pottery dating back to the Ban Chiang period; and assorted other bits of memorabilia. Outside are several cannons, many of which were salvaged from shipwrecks.


Laem Samila

Laem Samila

Located about 3 kilometres from Songkhla market (Thalat Supsin or Thalat Sot Thetsaban), Hat Samila is pleasantly free of crowds and a joy to amble along. The two islands off this part of the coast (Koh Nu - Mouse Island, Koh Maewo - Cat Island) are depicted in statues located at the north end of the beach. Alongside these statues is another, much revered statue depicting Mae Thorani (a Hindu goddess) as a mermaid. The statue is an iconic symbol of Songkhla (you?ll see it on the postcards) and has become a shrine to locals who believe it has the ability to bring them good fortune. The sea here is suitable for swimming, and boats can be hired by the pier for deep sea fishing. This beach is never going to compete with Thailand?s grander beaches, but for a more solitary experience and quiet contemplation, it can?t be beaten.
