Southern Thai Delights
For years, travellers have made a beeline for the south of Thailand. This compact one-week trip offers a convenient but unhurried way to experience the beautiful beaches and laid-back culture for yourself.
Welcome to a morsel of southern Thailand, with a sprinkling of Muslim Thais living beside Buddhist Thais. The old wooden houses, only 50 to 60 years old, have weathered beyond their years, looking more ancient than antique. Pick your way through the parked motorcycles to the pier where the fisherfolk moor their small but stately boats. Continue to Hua Thanon Market and further on to the local mosque and the village’s Muslim quarter.
