Songkhla

Cyberedhoy, Thailand
29.07.11

Songkhla itu salah satu kota pelabuhan di Thailand, lokasinya 950 km dari Bangkok, luas area gak leebih dari 8 ribu kilometer persegi dibagian Timur  Semenanjung Malaya. Berbatasan sama Kedah (Sai Buri) dan Malaysia di bagian Selatan, serta teluk Thailand di Timurnya. Di bagian utara berbatasan sama Si Thammarat dan Phatthalung provinsi.

Kendala selama di Thailand itu pasti soal bahasa, jarang pake huruf latin, hampir semua petunjuk di kota pakai bahasa Siam yang pake huruf mirip Jawa Kuno. Komunikasi juga susah karena penduduk lokal gak bisa bahasa Inggris. Kita pun kesulitan saat omong sama resepsionis hotel atau pelayan rumah makan. Dan tentang makanan juga mesti hati2 buat yang muslim, hampir semua rumah makan ada B2-nya.






An undeniably historic town endowed with ancient ruins, arts, and places of cultural importance, Songkhla, a melting pot of Thais, Chinese and Malays, charms visitors with its unique traditions, dialect, and folk entertainment. These characteristics are reflections of the provinces rich cultural heritage, which has been preserved and passed down from generations to generations.

Hat Yai, a district of Songkhla, is perhaps better known than the provincial capital itself. Hat Yai serves as a southern hub of communication, trading and transportation as well as a gateway to Malaysia and Singapore. In light of this, Hat Yai has gained importance as the driving force of economic growth in the southern region.
