My personal favourite cities in Southern Thailand. Topping the list is Songkhla, then it became a bit more difficult.
Trang like many southern towns in Thailand built its wealth on tin mining. Now tourism is the main income but interestingly the archipelago of Trang with its beautiful islands is still a kind of backwater. You can easliy spend a lot of time here, eating super breakfasts in Trang town and relaxing on the islands.
Phattalung is a hidden treasure in Thailand South. A tine province but with some stunning nature and unexpected highlights. The Talee Noi lake with its birdlife and amazing sunrises is a must-see for any Thailand visitor.
