Introducing Southern Thailand

Posted By : chauthihoaithuong/ 4 0

The narrow peninsula of Southern Thailand, stretching from Ranong, on the Myanmar border, to Malaysia, is a unique region with a rich, multicultural heritage. Forested mountains run along much of the interior, and the hinterland and islands of Phangnga Bay in the Andaman Sea form Thailand’s most spectacular natural landscape. Here the shallow waters are dotted with limestone stacks and craggy islands 985 ft (300 m) high. Some of the country’s best sandy beaches and diving sites are also found along the southern coasts and around the Andaman islands. Though the beach resorts of Phuket and Krabi draw the most visitors to the area, the South also offers historic cultural sites, such as the towns of Songkhla and Nakhon Si Thammarat. Sadly, many parts of the region’s coast were hit by the tsunami in 2004 and some 5,300 people were killed. The Thais responded rapidly, though, and most of the reconstruction was completed by 2006
