The lake is pretty huge and Calm. Songkhla has a beautiful lake and a nice sea front. The place has some good resorts facing the sea as well as the lake.

We paid 500 baht to the fisherman to tour around the lake and get close to Tinsulanond Bridge (connects Songkhla and Ko Yo).

I lived in this part of Thailand for two years and enjoyed both the lake and beaches immensely. It's easy to rent a motor - bike and discover

Visited here with my whole family. We rode on the ferry and had a nice view of the lake. There's many restaurants around this area which serves fresh and tasty seafood.
