Songkhla Songkhla is a southern border province, adjacent to the State of Kedah (Sai Buri), Malaysia. It has been an important port and coastal province of Thailand since the past with Amphoe Hat Yai as the southern centre of commerce, transportation and rapid economic growth. 

The province is ideal for tourism because of its two distinct characteristics: the old buildings of Amphoe Mueang Songkhla, and the developed Amphoe Hat Yai, separated by only about 30 kilometres. The old part of Songkhla is located at the present-day Amphoe Sathing Phra. Indians, Persians, and Arabs came to trade and called the place “Singhla”. The name came from two islands with the shape of crouching lions at the mouth of the Songkhla Lake. The islands are presently called Ko Nu and Ko Maeo. Songkhla occupies an area of 7,393 square kilometres, and is administratively divided into 16 districts: Mueang Songkhla, Ranot, Krasae Sin, Sathing Phra, Singhanakhon, Khuan Niang, Rattaphum, Bang Klam, Hat Yai, Na Mom, Chana, Thepha, Na Thawi, Saba Yoi, Sadao, and Khlong Hoi Khong.
