M30***41Fantastic boat trip on the Songkhla LakeI think this boat trip really deserves a separate listing. Many of the reviews about “Songkhla Lake” are about the statue that is at the entrance of the estuary of the lake, not about the lake itself. The lake is fantastic but you have make a boat trip to really appreciate the beauty. We paid 500THB for an hour to our “captain”. The boats are simple. There is no cover to protect you from the sun and there are no life vests. We did two trips. We went on two trips, the first before sunrise and and the second around sunset. During daytime it will be too hot. Just make sure that the weather is a bit stable and predictable before you go. Otherwise it might be too dangerous.
pxy0705Samila Beach in Songkhla is one of the most famous beaches here. The water on the beach is very clear, and there are large stretches of sandy beaches, and the sand is soft and white. There are many strange reefs and sculptures on the beach, adding a lot of artistic flavor to this beach.
juki235Songkhla’s Cat Island and Mouse Island are two adjacent islands, one large and one small in shape like a mouse and a cat. The sea near here is very clear, the seabed is full of corals, it is a good place for snorkeling, and the sunset here is also very beautiful, you may wish to come and enjoy it.
juki235KO YO Island in Songkhla is a very quiet and beautiful island. The tourists here are not very peaceful. Walking on the flat beach here, watching the sunrise and sunset, it is very magnificent and beautiful. Or spending a day on the island and admiring the stars in the sky at night is really unforgettable for a lifetime.
