The performing arts of Nang Talung (puppet shadow play) and Nora dance have their origins in this city.
It was assumed from evidence that Phatthalung had been a town built in the Srivijaya period.

The original town was located at Hua Khao Daeng on the coast now opposite the city of Songkhla. Because of risks, the town was moved to various districts. The most famous attraction of Phatthalung is the Thale Noi Waterfowl Park, which is the largest one of its kind in Thailand. All bird-watchers would like to visit the park.

Beyond natural attractions, visitors can learn about history of the city from ancient monuments, temples, as well as local arts and culture.
