Welcome to Sungai Kolok
It's not the most prepossessing place to enter or exit the 'Land of Smiles', but Sungai Kolok is the main gateway between Thailand and Malaysia. Unfortunately it's a border town that is best known for smuggling and sex work. Less of a target than the other major towns in the region, the unstable situation in the Deep South has nevertheless severely diminished its 'sin city' reputation in recent years, with the Malaysian men who once came here for weekends now favouring safer Hat Yai. Fewer travelers, too, leave Thailand here now; more come in the opposite direction and immediately hop on a train heading north.
