NORTH NORTHEAST BANGKOK CENTRAL CENTRAL SOUTH EAST

           Southern Thailand offers most spectacular scenery of lush coast towns, surrounded by tropical islands with clear-watered seas and the most beautiful coral reefs.
 
The peninsula is located between the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand (Indian Ocean and South China Sea). Almost all provinces are next to the sea. Its weather is always hot and rainy. Anyway, the hotness is cooled down by the seaside wind.
     
The Southern scenic cities have historically been part of an old Sumatra Empire. Buddhist and Muslim influences and the pre-Thai maritime reflections can be
seen in arts of the peninsula. Southern Thais speak their dialect. Some people
near the border of Thai-Malaysia speak Yawee and Malayu.
     

The area has richly varied topography, offers wild jungle national parks, mountains, waterfalls, caves, lakes. There are many attractions for visitors among the coastlines stretching for hundreds of kilometers with dazzling palm-fringed beaches, seaside resorts, and rocky islands. In the clear waters, coral reefs are teeming with marine life for the diving enthusiasts. The Similun archipelago is a top-ten best diving site of the world.

     
The famous graceful traditional emblems of Southern Thailand are Nang Talung,
the shadow play, and Nora dancing. Its various cultures bring about interesting
exotic traditions and arts, such as Rong Ngeng dancing, Phleng Bok lullaby,
Sila martial art, and the thrilling game of Bull Fighting.
     
Southern Thailand is famous in hot curries. The basin area offers luscious tropical fruits, famous rambutans from Suratthani.
         Seafood and Bird's nest are also famous food from its coastal area. Famous souvenirs from Southern Thailand are handicrafts, such as Yan Liphao wickerwares, mother-of-pearl ornaments, rattan ware, silverware, lacquerwares, banana trunk ropes, water palm
and straw mats and hand woven fabrics.
