What to see in Phatthalung

If there is only one place to go to Phatthalung, this is clearly Thale Noi. The lake is incredibly photogenic at sunrise with the silhouettes of the fishing huts on stilts with their large nets planted in the water and a sky with warm colors in the background. When it's the season, the lotus flowers part of the lake is beautiful and it's also a bird sanctuary. Around the lake, there is a lovely small artcraft village with mainly wickery workers, there are also some traditional longtail boat manufacturing workshops. Go see them at work, do not be shy ! As long as you do it with respect, they will be proud or amused to see you interested by their work. In Phatthalung city, I recommend you to go to Wat Khuha Sawan for its small cave but especially to climb Khao Ok Talu behind the railway station, a little for the view and a lot for the forest temple that you will discover. And in the evening, why not go eat at the night market next to the train station ?

Otherwise, Khao Chaison area is very interesting with its flooded cave that you visit by boat and a charming temple-cave close to hot springs were live many monkeys. The installations are not in good shape but I was assured that a program of renovation will be launched soon. Still in this area, I also found a small secret place very nice to eat lunch but shh...

Must-visits in Phatthalung

Thale Noi Lake Phatthalung

Thale Noi Lake

ทะเลน้อย
My opinion :
This lake offers superb views especially for the sunrise with the fishermen's huts and the warm colors of the sky, but also a lotus flowering area, it is also a natural reserve for birds. Going there for a boat trip is definetly a must do and if possible go before dawn !
Ban Thale Noi village Phatthalung

Ban Thale Noi village

บ้านทะเลน้อย
My opinion :
This small village of artisan working with wickected in the vicinity of Thale Noi lake does not lack of charm with its small cemented roads on piles. You can see the villagers at work in their homes.
Nang Talung, Shadow Puppets Theater Phatthalung

Nang Talung, Shadow Puppets Theater

หอศิลป์ หนังตะลุง
My opinion :
This traditional shadow theater seemed to appear in Thailand in Phatthalung province. You will find several Nag Talung masters who practice it and make the figurines. As for me, it's with Thale Noi Lake one of the 2 things you can not miss when visiting Phatthalung.
Wat Tham Khuha Sawan Phatthalung

Wat Tham Khuha Sawan

วัดคูหาสวรรค์
My opinion :
This royal temple is mostly known for its cave but also has a chedi on a small hill that offers a dominant view over the city of Phatthalung. It is the most important temple in the city.
Khao Ok Talu Phatthalung

Khao Ok Talu

เขาอกทะลุ
My opinion :
This 250-meter high limestone peak is emblematic of Phatthalung city. Located behind the train station, you can see it from afar and will probably be tempted to climb it to have a dominant view over the city. There is also a charming forestry temple.
