Phatthalung

Attractions in Thailand

Phatthalung is a land of many attractions, including stunning natural beauty, important religious and historical sites, and charming fishing villages.
 
Phatthalung Province in southern Thailand is an area of great natural beauty and the site of one of the most ancient settlements on the Malaysian Peninsula. From ancient times to the present, Phatthalung has been closely linked to Songkhla Province, particularly in terms of geography, history and migratory settlements.
 
During the Srivijaya period (around the 7th century CE.) the Phatthalung community received Indian cultural influence in the way of Mahayana Buddhism. In the reign of King Ramathibodi I (U Thong) of Ayutthaya, Phatthalung became one of twelve royal cities. 
 
The modern city of Phatthalung, on the west coast of Songkhla Lake, rests beneath Khao Ok Thalu, a peak that is clearly visible from afar. Phatthalung town features a unique landmark, two curious limestone formations, one of them with a tunnel passing through it.
 
The most famous attraction of Phatthalung is the Thale Noi Waterfowl Park, which is the largest of its kind in Thailand. Beyond natural attractions, visitors can learn about the history of the city while visiting ancient monuments and temples.
