Fancy Some Seafood? Come to Songkhla!

Calling all seafood lovers: from May 29 till June 9 Songkhla, the southern border province of Thailand, is going to host its annual Seafood Festival.

This year the festival will be held for the 19th year. The 12-day event has become possible thanks to support of the Songkhla City Municipality and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT). The festival activities will take place at Sra Bua, Laem Samila, Songkhla daily from 4pm till midnight. The visitors will be treated to a variety of seafood products soursed locally including fish, crabs, shrimps, squids as well as shellfish and jellyfish. Over one hundred food stalls will be set.

Besides, there will be live musical performances and entertaiment programs to ensure the visitors properly enjoy their time at the festival. Miss Samila, a popular local pageant, will attract everybody's attention plus there will be a free eco-friendly foam party for families to have great fun. Taking into account that there is a considerable percentage of Muslin population in the province, this year the festival is promoted under 'Food Festival No Alcohol' theme.

The objective of the festival is to promote local Thai cuisine as well as to attract more tourist attention to the province which in major part remains unknown to Western visitors. Yet, apart from a better-known Hat Yai City, Songkhla province is home to smaller but nonetheless interesting and unique destinations – the charming provincial capital with its well preserved Old Town and Baan Thalay Noi village on the shores of the namesake lake, one of the major swamp bodies in the country inhabited by a great variety of migrant birds are to name just a few.
