A symbol of Phattalung province is the Mount Khao Ok Thalu that is 177 m high. If you climb the steps to the top you will see the whole city.
Phatthalung is often mentioned as a birthplace of Manora Dance (you can see it on YouTube), that is very popular in the South of Thailand. It is believed that this style of dance was influenced by South India.
Phrai Wan Waterfall, น้ำตกไพรวัลย์
A waterfall in the tropics is a place where you can refresh yourself after a long road on a hot day. This one is no exception. Several quite comfortable natural stone tubs are ideal for a dip in the cool water.
Thale Noi is the largest Waterfowl Reserve in Thailand. The Thai name translates to "small sea" in English. Its size is 5 by 6 km, and the average depth is only 1.2 meters. The lake is covered with lotuses and reeds, which serves as a building material for birds’ nests.
The best time to visit is when the number of migratory birds reaches its peak, from October to March. Low season is from June to September, although the purple swamphens can be found all year round. Most birds belong to the family of herons and storks.
If you want to see the lake at its best, hire a sampan. To see how the Lotus blooms, you should set out at 5:30 am, the ride takes about 2 hours. You can make an arrangement with a boatman in advance right here on the shore.
The hotel is located on the shore of Thale Noi lake.
In this area, there are just a couple of decent hotels that offer excellent hospitality. A unique feature of every room in this hotel is an embroidered tablecloth with small patterns, such as grandmothers used to make.
Some rooms feature a view of the lake. There are a few restaurants nearby that offer Thai food.
