Some rooms 250 to 300 baht, Clean and tidy places! thumbsup.gif

Thank you for removing that ^ LivinginKata! thumbsup.gif.... So we'll move on... I was going to do this, this morning!

Thali Noi Lake area, in northern Songkhla,

This is a beautiful area for a day or two's visit... easy to get to from any southern area town... Located about 20 kms east of Patthilung or from Ranot to the east.... It's quite well sign posted!

I'll start with this.... The conservation centre at the end of Thali Noi Village

Not sure if the observation tower is finished yet.... but the centre offers rooms for rent, (I gather at "Up to you" price... )

Thali Noi is a destination for a lot of Malaysian day tours, so getting a room should not be difficult...thumbsup.gif or stay else where.

Tour long boats are available in the village.... around 500- 600 baht per tour boat... for roughly 2 hours... Best time to head out is in the morning when lilies and lotus flowers are open... the flowers close up around noon!

Scenery changes quickly !

heading through narrow water ways ....

To wide open areas of water !

Lilies almost closed up for the day! (April is usually the best time to see lilies.... ) although also there at other times.

Many types of birds can be observed .... January a good month to see the most migratory birds.. but there are lots at other times of year too...thumbsup.gif

Great area for those who enjoy the out doors and a relaxed stay with nature ! thumbsup.gif

It's a trip watching them unload the huge glass plates for the observation tower, especially when it gets windy.

Ko Phet, Hua Sai District
Nakhon Si Thammarat
8.142559, 100.297034 Not a bad place to swim. Google Maps doesn't mention it, but they have a nice temple there with shade trees, seating and shower facilities.

Beach at UTapao Temple, Ranode, Songkhla...this is one of the inlets I have to check before going in for my morning swim.

Tons of dragonflies at this beach, and many others. I always wonder how they 'make a living'.

Same old house from a different angle, one of the few left in the area due to smashing monsoon season waves. There is a new, more modern house behind it. Nobody here believes it might be related to global warming, but the old people here say the location of the houses they were born in are now 20 meters offshore.

An old man in Pak Traek, Ranode, Songkhla, points to the location of the home where he was born.

I almost stepped on this guy yesterday on the banks of Songkhla Lake. Good thing he had a huge catfish in his mouth. I think it is a monocled cobra, the most dangerous one of all.

Another view of the Burapachan Complex, now 99% finished in Ranode, Songkhla. I would not want to have that job.
