Songkhla is a sleepy coastal town and the capital of the Songkhla province in Thailand. The town lies on a narrow peninsula which separates Lake Songkhla (the largest inland lake in the country) from the Gulf of Thailand. This location makes it an important harbour town.
Songhkla lies near the Malaysian border and is 720 km from Bangkok. The neighbouring city of Hat Yai has an airport offering services to Bangkok twice a day. Buses leave from Bangkok several times a day.
Average temperatures are around 25°C, with a notable difference in the warm, cold and monsoon seasons.
Songkhla has a population of more than 75,000 residents. The town is an important educational centre in southern Thailand and is one of the most beautiful seaside resorts in the region, untouched by the adverse effects of mass tourism.
