Islam = The Cult of the Black Cube = Satan worship (if you don't believe me, look it up, Stocky).

Pray five times a day facing the Black Cube in Mecca, or you are an 'infidel' and should be killed?

It's just madness.

And, no, I haven't "shown my hand", Stocky. Just stating the facts...

after showing your hand with the rubbish pertaining to "prayer calls the whole night" you are now resorting to present your irrelevant and ridiculous personal views. get a life man and stop ridiculing yourself. :coffee1:

Ah, Islam. The religion of 'peace'. The religion of 'tolerance'. The religion of 'understanding'.

Thanks for reaffirming this, Naam.

Actually not that many westerners in Hat Yai. 

There used to be quite a few drinking in the Swan, but it is five years since i have been there.

There still are, mainly teachers and a handful of retirees from the oil industry, but on the whole the Swan's customers are Thai, Malaysian or Singaporean, especially if there's a big football match on; Arsenal, Chelsea, Man U, or Liverpool. Hat Yai doesn't attract western tourists, those we do get are just passing through heading north or south or en-route to Koh Lipe.

 

Hat Yai's a new city, here because of the railway, prior to 1920 it didn't exist. So there's no ancient history to attract western tourists and there's no ago-go bar scene to draw the sexpats. But it does attract a lot of visitors from Malaysia & Singapore looking to let their hair down for the weekend, Thailand is cheaper (though less so for Malaysians these days) and a little more liberal than their home countries. We have a good selection of music bars and restaurants with a huge choice of foods. Plus there are the karaoke lounges and massage parlors. The in your face sex scene takes place just on the border at Sadao/Danok, those looking for a quick leg-over usually don't get as far as Hat Yai.

 

Malaysians also like to shop here, mainly at the Kim Yong market, Plaza and Central Festival but it's also common to see them pushing trolleys around Big C full of toothpaste and shampoo, don't ask me why.

I doubt you've actually been to Thailand let alone Narathawat and the deep south, you're just  fantasizing from your preppers bunker whilst fondling your AR-15.

I really don't consider Haad Yai as 'the Deep South'. I like to think of it as anything south of Kanchanawanich Road, which runs all the way from Songkhla Town to Sadao, bisecting Haad Yai along the way.

 

I think of it more as a gateway to the Deep South.

No, thankfully Hat Yai has stayed largely separate from the troubles to our south, indeed, the city is a refuge for many families who have left the southernmost provinces, both Buddhist and Muslim.

Songkhla doesn't change much, still a sleepy little town. Samila Beach and the seafood restaurants same as always. As for safety, Songkhla town is fine, there has only ever been one incident in Songkhla town back in 2005 with a motorcycle bomb outside the Green World Hotel that caused no injuries or damage except to the motorbike.

Actually, there has been a great deal of "development" in Songkhla Town in recent years, including alone Samila. One of these was the recent removal of my favorite drinking spot, in front of the bathhouse/public restroom/minimart across from the beach volleyball/stage area...

 

The beach has been the sight of a lot of municipal development in recent years...

 

About 20 years ago there was a pretty active expat scene located mostly in one small area in the town, including the 'dark side'. There are a few places left, but there are far fewer expats around due to the offshore oil industry moving north to Satthahip (or at least I have been told).

 

I think if you go back you will just find there is just a lot more of everything, including traffic, buildings and slums...

I think with a name like that you are pretty much obliged to re-visit...

Well on the times I've visited over the years all they seem to be doing is digging it up and putting it back down again, though with the addition I think of a sandbag seawall buried underneath it, that and adding a pile of rocks down at the south end near the fishing village. Though they haven't fixed that horrible sewage 'leak' opposite the Rajamangala Hotel last time I looked/inhaled.

 

I do like the art installations that have appeared bit by bit, Songkhla is a little unusual for Thailand in that it has municipal art, in particular I like the Naga that pops up here and there.

 

But compared with the building boom in and around Hat Yai, it's not really changed that much!

Lived in Hat Yai 2+ years. Elsewhere in LoS, 4+ years. Can read and speak Thai. Yes, I know enough about the southern border areas to avoid them, except for immigration purposes.

And, yes, been to Naratiwat, Stocky. Not making things up. Really, truly, thoroughly, detested it. Like I said, 'never again'...
