We went by car to Kho Yo and took the ferry to Songklah. First we passed the queue for the ferry and were amazed by the fishermen village near by. It takes quite a while to find a place for a U-turn in this narrow street.

I visited this place and was amazed at the beautiful island inhabited by muslim fishermen and there families. A very peaceful, serene and picturesque way of life is portrayed here.

Nice place, not much to do anyway. Only 5-10 mins sight seeing and congrats youve seen everything! But worth it, and its near the other spots

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).
