Phatthalung is an ancient province in the South of Thailand.  It is regarded as a birthplace of the Nora dance and Nang Talung, the shadow puppet play.  Phatthalung owns the beautiful natural reserve – Talay Noi.  It is a large lake with many local plants, migratory birds and indigenous birds. People can enjoy spotting them.

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.

 


Phatthalung is located in the far south of Thailand on the west coast of Songkhla Lake at the foot of Ok Thalu Mountain. Phatthalung is regarded as the birthplace of Nang Talung, shadow-puppet play and the Nora dance. The town features a unique landmark, two curious limestone formations, one of which has a tunnel passing through it, and the most famous attraction in the province is the Thale Noi Waterfowl Park, 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.

 

Phatthalung town has limited accommodation options for visitors, including budget and midrange hotels with air conditioning, hot water, and other modern amenities.

Phraiwan Waterfall is a place you can’t miss.  The big waterfall is in the Ban Phood Forest Protection Unit, Khaow Bantat Wildlife Sanctuary.  It is popular because of its tranquility and greenery.  You can go worshipping sacred things in Wat Wang which is the old temple in Phatthalung.  The temple is believed that it was built in the late Ayuttaya Kingdom.  The temple’s chapel is well-decorated with Rattanakosin style. 

Furthermore, Khaeng Phon Lak Phra or Chak Phra Tradition is the famous tradition held on the first day of the waning moon in the eleventh lunar month.  Buddha images will be moved around the city and people will beat drums to control the movement of the procession.  When the procession passes each temple, there will be beating drum contest against each temple. 

Nang Talung Contest is a symbolic tradition of the province, held every April.  People can enjoy shadow puppet performances and contests.

Each sub-district of the province has its different food and sweets.  For example, Tabon Nang Lard is famous for Kalamae (sweet sticky candy).  Amphur Muange is famous for sugar-coated dried banana and velvet tamarind candies.  Amphur Pak Phayoon is famous for shrimps.

As in most provincial capitals, Phattalung features a central market where locals can buy everything from groceries to household appliances and visitors can shop for clothing and other necessary supplies. In addition to the shopping venues listed below, there are often locally produced handicrafts available at central markets, the occasional night market, and from village workshops in smaller towns throughout the province.
