Songkhla: Things to do
Tropical jungle, unique traditions and an ancient past – Songkhla is great for foodies, culture buffs and even families looking for an authentic, less touristy break.
Constructed around 1878, this fine example of Chinese architecture was originally home for the ruling na Songkhla family. Later the building became residence of Songkhla’s upper administrative officers and then City Hall. In 1953 it was converted as a museum to exhibit rare southern artefacts. Today, the museum offers an extensive insight into local archaeology, history and culture.
