We researched the free tram ride, and thought it would be fantastic to see the sights of Songkhla without getting heatstroke or trying to avoid the many monkey's running around! The information said the 1st tram left at 9am, so we headed to the museum early, and we were told it would be 10.30am. So off for a coffee we went, returning at 10am, just to be sure. A lady said we could sit down until it arrived and gave us booklets in English so we could see the route. We sat there until 10.25, then the same lady came to tell us that the tram had been involved in an accident, and that someone had cut the brake cables, so she was very sorry, but there would not be another tram until 3pm. We would have accepted this if we had not walked around the corner to see a number 2 tram loading up with tour passengers. When we asked, we were told it was a private tour and the next would be 3pm. 20 mins later, the number 4 tram went past, again full of tour passengers. We had given up by now, so didn't bother, but more information and better signage would of helped!

On Thurs, Oct 4 I was the only person to show up for the 10am Tram Tour. The lady at the Prime Minister's house was kind enough to call 'someone' to come get me. Two women showed up; one to drive and not sure what the other one was for. Neither were smiling. We had a small issue with a car blocking the street so our tour was delayed a few minutes during the 'tour', but once on our way, the two tram employees did their best to drive as quickly as possible to get back to the starting point and dump me back off. They refused to do the entire route, would not slow down to allow me to get any photos in passing and they both seemed truly annoyed at my presence. I've actually taken the Tram Tour previously and it was wonderful, but the difference was that the previous tram employees obviously enjoyed their job much more than the present employees. It was fun and interesting last time I took it. This time however was a big disappointment and a waste of my time. I had planned to take the tour twice that day, once for photos and once for video. But that option was no longer possible. I would have even been happy to pay money for the privilege but it was obvious these two tram employees had other plans for their day. Kudos to the woman at the Prime Minister's House, though. She at least showed empathy to me. :(

Ask the staff just beside Phathammarong Museum for the timing. The tram should start every hour. Friendly and jovial guide and driver that can speak a little English gave us a tour around Songkhla only stopping by the Naga's head for 5mins to take photos. Overall a great experience and we gave some donation box at the end of the tour

It can take about 30 people per trip.there are about 5 trips per day and start at 9am. it is free with a tour guide to explain to you the different sites of songkla. worth the tour. you can give a small donation after the tour. a very good idea by the government to have this tram tours.

This tour took only about 45 minutes. As me and my sister were the only group of "passengers" that's why we are the VIPs. ;) The tour guide was kind and helpful, she explained in English to us whenever we passby a famous place/ building. We even tried banana ice-cream and took photos in front of the street art and the head of the Dragon. The beach Awesome trip I will say. 😁😁
